Development of an Android-Based 2D "Math Mania - Space" Educational Game
"Math Mania - Space" is a single player, 2D AndroidTM game that involves solving basic arithmetic equations with classic and arcade game modes. In classic mode, the player would just input the correct answer from a given arithmetic operation then proceed to the next
stage. Excitement is elevated on the arcade mode since the player must satisfy the arithmetic equation correctly to prevent his/her avatar from colliding to a self-destructing enemy robot. The game was designed using Unity Canvas Application Program Interface (API) and implemented using C# programming language. Moreover, being on an Android platform, the game eciently utilized the touch screen features of an Android-based phone or tablet. The mean evaluation rating from 20 elementary students were 4.47 (very satisfactory) and 4.46 (very satisfactory) for game play and graphics, respectively.
