Then rejoice, for there will soon be a new educational contender out on mobile devices – combining elements of Bejeweled and Candy Crush Saga – going by the name of Sweet Math. The game – which promises to be viable for both children and adults, thanks to fully customizable difficulty settings – recently managed to slide victoriously past its $5,000 funding goal. As a result, anyone seeking mathematical glory – or perhaps just hoping to turn learning into a family fun night – can look forward to the world’s sweetest fruit-filled educational experience sometime early next year.
