Educational Games We Want on Our iPhone

first_imgWhen we heard news that Where in the World is Carmen San Diego, and Oregon Trail are coming to Facebook, we couldn’t help but get a bit nostalgic–that’s really the whole point, right? Well, besides teaching a whole new generation about the importance of rationing buffalo meat before fording a river.So we asked the PCMag staff to continue the trip down memory lane by picking out a long-lost edutainment favorite they’d love to have on their iPhone.

There’s only enough room in our hearts for one problem-solving tropical fish.Mavis Beacon Teaches TypingThis should be a mandatory install for every first time iPhone owner. Getting a smartphone without a touchscreen is a bit like learning to type all over again. SimAntWith the advent of games like Spore and various sequels to The Sims, things have gotten a little sophisticated in the Sim world. We’d love to go back to a time when things were simple–and barely visible with the naked eye.Speak ‘n SpellWe got an Etch-a-sketch app for the thing. Wouldn’t you pay 99 cents to get your iPhone to spell dirty words in an 80s robot voice?Word MunchersOh, you lucky iPhone owners–while researching for this story, I was surprised and delighted to discover that an iPhone version of Number Munchers existed, teaching children the wonders of basic arithmetic via the immanent threat of Troggle. Adapting the game’s linguistic sequel is pretty much a given, right?Word Rescue Learn to read whilst playing a Mario-esque sidescroller? Heck, beats sitting through class.These ones actually exist!MathBlaster M.U.L.E. Number Munchers Simon Sayslast_img read more
