Disable the bomb - Math for kids game

Apr 09, 2020

This little project started as a small adding and subtracting interaction I created for my kid and others around the world, but then I got an idea to expand this into a game, where you have to quickly disable a bomb by correctly answering the quiz questions. This was a great little project.

What a fun idea, Nejc! Thanks for sharing :) The illustrations and sound effects are amazing. 

Of course, the first thing I did was to see what would happen if I put only incorrect answers and turned all the dots red. I have to say, I was a little disappointed that it didn't explode right away! That being said, the explosion animation was well worth the wait. Looks great! 

Thanks again for sharing this example with the community. Any chance you'd be willing to share the .story file? I'm sure our community members would love to use this in their courses!

Hey, Allison, thanks! :)

I cannot share the source file, but I am happy to answer any questions.

One of the more interesting parts of the whole project is that the whole quiz is generated randomly from variables, nothing is hardcoded. And when you're playing the game, that is basically one slide being reloaded all the time. :)

This sounds like an incredibly fun and creative project! Starting as a simple adding and subtracting interaction for your child and evolving into a bomb-defusing game with quiz questions is truly impressive. The idea of combining education with an exciting game concept is both engaging and interactive.
