“We had to choose Malaysia as one of the countries for this simultaneous launch because the country has incredible statistics in terms of academic achievement and social media adoption. Scholastic excellence seems to be in the blood of Malaysian’s, with such a high proportion of students attaining the highest possible grades. We believe that as a proving ground for an education based application / game, Malaysia is a key market.

For that reason, we have customised it for Malaysia so that it is available in Bahasa Malaysia, Mandarin Chinese and English.”
The app allows you to challenge specific friends or even choose a random opponent, where you battle it out over three (3) fast rounds. During game time, contestants have to solve mathematical equations and select the correct answer based on a multiple choice answer system. Speed is of the essence as well as the correct answer as the faster you answer, the more points you earn. Getting the answer wrong of course results in a points deduction. The winner is decided on who has the most points after the three full rounds have been completed.
