The Counting Kingdom Released – Rescue the Kingdom Today

Get your balloons and party hats out, The Counting Kingdom has released! Today is a day of magic, monsters and math – please help us spread the word!



Along with font updates and a few small graphical fixes, here are the bugs that have been fixed in the 1.0.0 update:

  • If the player has the Helper Panel up and combines spells, the panel is no longer accurate
  • In the first tutorial, players could attempt to drag the spell causing all sorts of weirdness to happen
  • The incorrect number of doubling tiles was showing up in Free Play mode
  • If a battering ram gets into the castle, but on the same turn a crumbling tower gets the last monster, the player will lose and then win

A HUGE thank you to all of our Early Access players who have given us feedback and helped us track down bugs – we’re incredibly grateful for your help making this game great! A big wizardly hug from all of us here at Little Worlds Interactive.

Bucket o' Changes: 0.9.1 Update

With the game feature complete we've been polishing things up, getting to all the little things that we didn't have time to revise before, and making sure the game is as bug-free as possible. Here's the list of what's new in this build:

End of Game Cinematic
After you've been kind enough to rescue the Kingdom, it's time to celebrate! I don't want to spoil the ending, but I can promise that it includes cake.

If you've already finished the game, you can access this cinematic by clicking on the little gear button on the Title Screen, and selecting "End Story". This will be locked until you finish the game, so no peeking ahead!



New Particle and Sound Effects
Check out the new particle effects for the Kaboom potion, Freeze potion, and the crumbling towers. We also have new sounds for the Kaboom potion and Battering Rams.

Tiny Changes

  • Updated Credits screen
  • The Kaboom potion now gives 200 points
  • Players can now reset their save data from the title screen menu
  • Players can now access both cinematics from the title screen menu

Bugs that have been fixed
  • Players can click castles during the "You Rescued The Counting Kingdom" screen
  • Monsters that are moved onto doubling tiles do not have their numbers doubled
  • The spell effect doesn't show up for the armored monster the second time you cast a spell on it
  • If you move a monster behind a battering ram it stops moving forward
  • If you use a freeze potion and the battering rams come out during the next two turns, after the potion wears off that row of monsters doesn't move forward
  • Players can use the Move potion, but then not click on any of the arrows

    The game is very close to launching - we'll be announcing the official date tomorrow! If you find any bugs please let us know in the forums so that we can get those all squashed as quickly as possible!

    Thanks as always,
    Jenna and the LWI team ːwizardmagicː

“Combine the fact that even I got dragged into enjoying The Counting Kingdom being a crusty adult with it’s gorgeous art direction, cute monsters and colourful scenery, and I think this is a game that’s pushing all the right buttons.”
Indie Statik

“Making a video game designed purely for entertainment is hard. Making a video game that can entertain and educate seems infinitely harder, if only for how rarely the goal is accomplished... That’s what makes it so special when a game like The Counting Kingdom, which is available on Steam early access, manages to deftly balance fun and learning.”
The Daily Dot

“In The Counting Kingdom, math is magic, but it’s a magic that’s available to all. Without time limits, without punishment, and with a focus on fun and strategy—and yes, cuteness.”
Pixelkin

This game is incredibly fun! The simple premise of turn based tower defense type gameplay where numbered cards must be combined and discarded to match the number of a selected group of attacking monsters grows deeper as the game progresses. Potions to add or subtract numbers from a monster's power combined with spells to move them around, stop them, or get rid of them entirely will keep you on your toes.

As the numbers get bigger on enemies and cards, it gets tougher to make full screen clearing matches but it feels amazing when you do and you'll score tons of points as well! There is also a free play mode where you can jack the difficulty way up that is quite mind bending as well.

This game is highly recommended if you like numbers puzzles and/or have kids who need to practice good math skills. Can't wait to see what else ends up in the game!

The Counting Kingdom has caused quite a stir in my house, as my seven-year-old son is mad at me for pulling him away from the game ater 45 minutes to brush his teeth and go to bed. He picked it up very quickly and became quite engrossed in solving the math problems and finding creative solutions to the latter levels.

If you have a child that likes math, he or she will gravitate to Counting Kingdom for sure. If your kid doesn't like math, it's a great way to change that. The addition problems are simple, but how they get solved is addicively fun!

I have to admit, I was not expecting to have as much fun with this game as I did. It's a kids game targeted at children ages 6 - 8 or so, and this review largely is as well (or moreso: any parents reading this)

The game is polished & adorable, with bright colors, pleasant music, and cute monsters that are largely nonthreatening and quite imaginative.

At its core it's a puzzle game using pretty much the most basic of addition/subtraction- and while the difficulty/complexity of the math problems never really increased, it would have felt out of character for the game to do so.

The gameplay is solid & bug free, with a simple premise (matching the values of monsters on the field with "spells" in your spellbook. You can modify the values of the monsters, and add your spells for greater sums to be used in combos, not as a requirement- just for a higher score. Though clearing 7 monsters at once with a well placed spell is fairly satisfying, even as a 24-year old adult.

It's fairly long too, which is a pretty nice plus for a $4 game.

If you have kids learning math, I'd highly recommend this one. It's pretty easy to pick up, no stress, and just as fun as any of the more mindless apps on the market (Angry Birds/Temple Run, that kind of time vortexes.) Seriously, I would have loved to play this as a child, and still had fun with this as an adult. So if you're an adult that's bored and would like a time-waster, this is actually a fairly decent/low-commitment game as well!

I also did a video review if you'd like to see gameplay/more in-depth impressions (kid friendly): http://youtu.be/QVl0dvIv3zQ

Seriously a fantastic game, for all ages. I just spent a few hours aimlessly counting and destroying monsters.
Besides that, it's super cute! The art is absolutely amazing, and really well thought out.
The AI also seems really well done. The game won't leave you hanging with your last couple monsters on the map and wrong cards - it will start giving you correct cards.

For all those who loved games like Treasure Mathstorm or Math Blaster when they were younger, this will remind you of those good times.
