Now children can study Addition on the Nintendo Switch! Greco and his ghosts await your challenge!

Finally, on the Nintendo Switch, a game that lets your child enjoy studying while challenging their skills in math has entered the world of gaming. It contains a collection of addition problems and math drills learned at the elementary level. There are up to 10 steps of learning, starting with Elementary 1st grade level 1-digit math problems to developing skills such as carrying over numbers with 2-digit math problems and more. Advancing through the levels, your child can naturally become able to solve 4-digit problems with ease.

The Story (setting)

"The name's Greco. I’m sendin you an invite to face the challenges that await in my castle! So, let's play a game!! I live at the very top of my castle! Do you got what it takes to reach me? It won't be easy. In order to get to me, you gotta pass through several rooms. In these rooms, you'll have to solve Addition problems to pass. That's why my castle is called the Calculation Castle! Moreover, my castle is full of ghosts with many tricks standing in your way, so good luck and do your best! If you manage to beat my ghostly henchmen and get through the rooms, you'll receive lots of hidden rewards…but can you do it? I guess I'll wait and see! Heh heh heh…"

  • The game is composed of a series of stages and there are ghosts and locked doors within each stage. Greco and his ghosts will present the player with problems that they will need to solve in order to defeat the ghosts, unlock the doors, and proceed to the next stage.

  • If certain conditions are met and the numbers on the lock match with the numbers of problems solved correctly, then the lock will be removed.
  • If all the locks on a door are removed then the door will open, and the player can advance further through the game.
  • By selecting and pushing [Hint] the player will be able to see a hint that can aid them in solving the question. Choosing to reveal a hint will require the player to spend ghost coins.

[Bonus Stage]-----By acquiring the required item or "key," the player can advance to a special bonus stage.

  • In this game mode, players must defeat as many ghosts as possible within the time limit.
  • When the player exterminates ghosts, they will receive ghost coins.
