Emilie from our smartappsforkids.com staff did a wonderful review of Math Mathews and the Search for the Necklace of Sylla, giving it four-and-a-half stars and making it one of our newest Top Picks. (We only give 3-4 apps per month Top Pick status.)
Her Bottom Line: "Indiana Jones meets Pirates of the Caribbean, with some great multiplication table practice thrown in. Well-drawn graphics and a deep back story make math fun for ages 8-11."
All of the ReviewForDev reviewers agree with Emilie, giving Math Mathews and the Search for the Necklace of Sylla four or five stars. I've actually bought the app (a rare thing indeed since I get most of my apps free) for my eight-year old son, so that's about the highest praise I can give.
