Here at Jay Is Games we're all about educating our readers. With that in mind, here is Frog Fractions, by Twinbeard Studios, a game in which protecting fruit from bugs will teach you all about fractions. And nothing else. Nope. (Parents and players, please take note of the game's "orange" rating.)
You play the game by pointing and clicking with your mouse to collect the bugs before they reach your fruit, and the knowledge grows within you as educational numbers fall from the sky. It's math, so you're learning! In between rounds, use the fruit to upgrade your frog, with the aim of buying the swimming pool to win the game. Retro edutainment at its finest... right?
As the game makes you smarter, you may realize there's more to it than first impressions suggest. While everyone's definition of depth is different, below the surface of Frog Fractions are some interesting surprises, and it's well worth sticking with the game past the early levels. It's not a game for the kids, but Frog Fractions is a parody game that can only be described as unique. Highly recommended if you have half an hour to spare, the game has plenty to offer, and an impressive soundtrack (available for download here) though it lacks replayability. And of course it makes you smarter.
