Can you help free GOZOA’s friends from the evil Villain? Travel to the adventurous world of LURRA, overcome magical obstacles, solve mathematical assignments and defeat the enemies of LURRA.
An educational math app for children ages 6-11 years – from the critically acclaimed company GOZOA, developed together with math teachers, educators, game designers, parents and many children in Denmark. We have tested this app on 300+ children.
GOZOA – The Key Quest is a platforming game with magical obstacles and mathematical assignments. All assignments come with 6 difficulties, so everyone between 6-11 years of age is challenged.
The child will earn stars and diamonds by completing an assignment, and thus be encouraged to solve them repeatedly to try and improve themselves. Diamonds can be used to buy items in GOZOA’s house, and if there isn’t any more diamonds left in their pocket, the child must complete additional assignments to earn more.
The story about the Villain keeping GOZOA’s friends captured will motivate the child to train their math skills while being entertained by a pretty, adventurous and wondrous world.
The levels are built with a certain progression in mind as it continuously gets harder, and thereby keeping the child challenged and motivated in solving the challenges the best way possible.
As a parent or a teacher you will have the benefit of being able to see how far, and how well, the child has progressed.

Screenshots from GOZOA - Play & learn math:
Intergalactic arcade math game, which helps kids, aged 6–14 to train number recognition, addition, subtraction and multiplication skills in a fun, effective and challenging way. It is easy to play – all you have to do is to tilt the iPad or smartphone so GOZOA can fly to the right number, results, coins and power-ups, but watch out for the asteroids and the Villain along the way…
GOZOA needs your help! He is flying through the universe in a cool spaceship and your job is to help him explore 30 different planets as you solve math problems and earn points along the way.
You can choose between arcade and story mode. In arcade mode, you get to choose the math problem yourself and earn points depending on how long you stay alive. Story mode has the same challenges but the problems vary along the way and you have to fly from one planet to the next, as the game gets more difficult the further you advance. You move through different levels, which motivates you to keep playing and learn.
THE GAME CONTROLS
The game uses an accelerometer and you control the GOZOA spaceship simply by tilting the iPad or smartphone.
Playing the game involves gathering the correct numbers, gold coins and power-ups (petrol, speed, time and shields) and avoiding the obstacles. You have to think fast and calculate quickly because things move at high speed when GOZOA fly through space. The point is to advance as far as possible in an endless game world while solving math problems without running out of fuel or destroying your spaceship and die – all of which requires you to steer around the different intergalactic dangers.
Power-ups help you to advance further because the game becomes increasingly difficult. The longer you keep the figure alive, the faster the spaceship flies.
- Can be used for children aged 6–14 – differing degrees of difficulty
- Several degrees of difficulty from individual numbers to addition, subtraction and multiplication problems up to the number 100 and timed
- Fast and engaging arcade game with fun music to maximise the “intergalactic excitement”
- Rewards in the form of high scores, stars and upgrades
- Intergalactic graphics and animations
- Timed challenges
- Help guide and tips along the way
- You earn stars depending on how well you do
Screenshots from GOZOA - In space:
GOZOA, his friends and The Villain are looking for cool kids, who would love to dress up as a Ninja, Princess or even a Cowboy. Kids who loves styling can go crazy with GOZOA – Go shopping. There is plenty of clothing and accessories to find, which can be put together in different ways to create a fun look. However, before you can go on a crazy shopping spree you need to cash out some gold coins by solving arithmetical problems. Addition, Subtraction and Multiplication problems must be solved by matching clothes and numbers. The gold coins you earn can then be used to purchase clothes in the fashion shop. Now you can start designing your very own unique style.
FOR THE PARENTS
Money can be a very abstract concept for children between the ages of 5-9 years old. The GOZOA – Go shopping familiarizes children with numbers and teaches them about the value of money. Playing will help your child understand money's worth and that it has to be earned before you can spend it.
