Interesting math edutainment game

We've all been there when we were kids, trying to learn math: we were given de-contextualized problems to solve, or narratives that made no sense. Why would anyone eat 5 apples? Why would a kid care for the speed of a train? Well, Math Rescue tries to take this issue and solve it by dressing math problems in more palatable clothes. You get a child looking on screen companion which will be your guide to solving the math problems. Also, they seem to take into account the age of the target of the game, 7/8 to 12. Therefore, if you play this in a DOSBox emulator you should have no issues whatsoever making math more appealing to your preadolescent, unless of course, he or she is more inclined towards games that are more graphically enticing. Graphically, Math Rescue doesn't really look that great, it's your 8 bit era tile sets and sprites, but if your little ones hasn't had the time to develop a taste for full HD 32 bit color depth content, it might still work. So, without a question, a good, barebones math edutainment suite to prepare preadolescents for school
