Main Functions and Features

The Abacus Project follows the journeys of a young student who falls into an abandoned laboratory while on the way home from school. His or her only companion is a PDA device by the name of Abacus. However, this PDA has lost its memory. It is therefore up to the main character to solve various mathematics puzzles in order to escape the science center and return home. Mazes, riddles and a host of funny creatures await along the way.

Other Options

The Abacus Project focuses around four key mathematical areas. These are problem solving, reasoning and proofs, connections and visual representations. Multiplayer modes are available and all tasks are presented in a graphically pleasing manner. This is ideal for young children who wish to get a better grip on such a challenging subject.

On your way home from school, you tumble into a mysterious underground laboratory. To escape the lab, you must solve a series of challenging math puzzles. Hostile blobs, flying critters, blasts of steam and many other obstacles stand in your way.

And your sole companion, a nervous PDA named Abacus, has a bad case of memory loss.

That's the premise of The Abacus Project, a compelling new adventure program designed to develop children's math, logic and problem-solving skills. Children spend more time on higher-level thinking than on basic computation.

Everyone will enjoy this engaging, entertaining game that helps children build a strong basic math foundation.

The program is made up of three game-play modules and a powerful administration utility.
