Your goal in this game is to feed the sushi monster with the right math equation represented by delicious sushi. A correct answer will satisfy the monster and you will earn points and stars. If you answered wrong, the monster will push away the sushi plates and will throw a tantrum.

The game starts when the sushi monster pops up at the center of a round table. He wears a target number around his neck. Then, several plates of numbered sushi will be served by the chef surrounding the monster.

At the top of the screen is a game board where you can find the target number, number sentence, and the score. You have to tap two correct numbered plates to meet the target number.

So if your target number is 300 and you’re playing the addition game, you have to quickly tap two plates that will be equal to 300. When you answer correctly, the game proceeds to the next round until you complete the level. You will earn high scores and perfect stars if you are accurate and fast. Scores drop significantly if your answers are wrong. And of course, the sushi monster will be angry at you.
