Math Land: Addition Games for kids - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes. I have work in other console and PC titles. Nevertheless, working in mobile has its own hurdles to overcome.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

We decided to use an isometric art style. Isometric makes use of perspective and overlapping of images to make what looks like a 3D world. Thus, we had to develop a complicated system to sort the images and the avatar while he was moving to achieve this effect correctly.

Ricardo de la Rosa is a game developer who grew up playing games. He studied Software Engineering and immediately after that, got a Master’s Degree in Video Game Development. Both from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid. He’s always taking on more game projects that he has time for, but that's because he loves video games.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

Minimetro is one of my favorite apps. It makes use of very slick and minimalist UI, that at the same time, has a great feel to it.

How long have you been working on this app?

Mathland took a little over a year to develop. But we are constantly updating and adding new features. Developing for mobile is a continuous process, even after the release of the app.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

Usually most educational games are boring because they lack a true reward for learning. We wanted to reward those kids that study and learn the subject.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

We wanted to showcase how mathematics can be a fun thing to do when done with the right incentive. Also, in a way, kids understand the context. This way they can really learn while playing. I think we really achieved this and I am very proud of it.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

We are currently working to bring Mathland to Nintendo Switch. This will be a huge step for us. And for educational games on the console.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

I would love to hear about their experiences with the app. Did they like it? What did they didn’t like? Especially if they have kid. A kid’s opinion is usually very sincere and is a very important feedback for us.
