Would love a promo code. I teach math to third and fourth graders and would love to try this out.

A very nice math game if you're interested in rockets.
On the simplest level you start with a rocket on a launch pad and solve various math problems to complete the stages of prep to launch the rocket. The next hardest level starts with a multi-stage rocket. As the timer counts down and runs through the list of your answers, if you see you've missed one or more of the math problems you will regret it if you don't jettison the escape pod for the crew. If successful with the launch, they add in separating the various stages at different points on the trip to the upper atmosphere with timed math problems. Again, miss one and eject the crew or else. They keep aggravation to a minimum by not forcing you all the way back to the start if you miss a problem with a "retry" button.
The hardest level adds in the ability to dock with and withdraw the lander from the rocket. This part isn't done with math problems but it's plenty difficult on it's own. You have to boost away, rotate and line up with the lander, thrust back and keep lined up as you try to do a successful docking. Each of these stages are numbered on the control panel so you won't be left in the dark when trying to figure out what top do and when. Go too fast or don't stay lined up and you will fail. There's an also an indicator you can watch to make sure you're lined up correctly. Use of the "retry" button here is almost mandatory while getting started. Make contact, lock, and withdraw the lander and all that's left is to rotate toward the moon and fire the main rocket.
The game has pretty good graphics throughout and some pretty good sound effects as well. The camera is the only thing I had some issues with. It would have been nice to have more control over the camera, but managing the camera and the rocket controls at the same time would probably be too much to handle.
The math problems themselves range from very simple addition or subtraction to greater-than less-than problems you deal with after solving double digit multiplication and division problems.
Easily worth the $1.99 asking price if you like rockets and need to work on your math. If you're more into ponies or kittens maybe not so much.
