Twelve a Dozen is the first of several educational games that education start-up Amplify plans to release this year. The New York-based company creates digital K-12 educational products for parents and teachers, and it plans to release 30 iPad games for students this October. Amplify has teamed up with the developer Bossa Studios Ltd to release its first game that "help students build key algebraic skills," according to their website. The pairing is kind of an odd match since Bossa Studios' previous games include Surgeon Simulator and Deep Dungeons of Doom.
Twelve a Dozen is a puzzle-platformer that follows the heroine named Twelve and her companion Dot, a living decimal point voiced by British actress and comedian Lucy Montgomery. Twelve and Dot must use addition, subtraction, division, multiplication to solve puzzles and save Twelve's family after disaster hits her home town Dozenopolis.
