This is an Algebra game that makes kids learn to solve equations without knowing they are learning math. Tests in schools show that after one hour of playing, 30 % are able to solve equations, while after two hours of playing DragonBox, 80 % were able to solve equations.

DragonBox became the number one sold app in any category at Apple App Store immediately after launch kicking out Angry Birds and other well known games.

The game was covered in Wired in June
