Aureus Prime

apps for free

In Aureus the player is tasked with operating the elements of an electrically charged gold producing machine. The machine operates in the dark, with all elements hidden from the player. Matching similar elements creates an electrical current which briefly illuminates part of the board, disintegrates the matched elements, and produces gold.

Players must rely on their memory to match hidden elements. Speed is likewise essential to master the Aureus which has a strong tendency to overheat. Skilled players have the option of using gold coins earned over time to upgrade the machine. Upgrades can reduce pressure, slow falling elements, or minimize the impact of failed matches amongst other benefits. Once fully upgraded, Aureus provides its fastest game mode with frantic gameplay.

At a basic level, Aureus can be played as a tile matching game with a twist. At the most complex level, Aureus demands a combination of strategy, dexterity and memory. The most efficient way to play is by making a succession of small matches to regroup similar elements, followed by more complex matches to produce large amounts of gold coins. As the pressure increases, the player must master a balance between speed and memorization to optimize the number of coins and the final score.

Aureus features 3 game modes:
* Endurance: the classic mode, with continuous game play until the machine breaks
* Time Trial: the perfect mode for short sessions, with game play limited to 90 seconds
* Online: a multiplayer mode in which players can challenge up to 3 opponents

grow grammar

free app

Watch kids grow a firm grasp of the English language through working their grammar muscles in a fun and healthy way by constructing and deconstructing sentences.

Guided by Common Core standards, Grow Grammar was developed for elementary and middle school students, and provides a fresh contemporary approach to a traditional subject. A knowledge of grammar principles is now believed by many educators to enhance and support the development of literacy skills including reading and writing. An understanding of grammar is also important for learning other languages.

Grow Grammar is a classroom app which works equally well in the home, and is suitable for environments where iPads are shared. It is effective for both group activities and individual study.

Grow Grammar comes equipped with two modes of interaction: “create” and “challenge”. In “create” mode, students build their own sentences using a dynamic, grammar-based tree structure. In “challenge” mode, students work in the opposite direction by analyzing the underlying grammar and correctly identifying parts of speech: articles, nouns, verbs, adjectives and prepositions.

Grow Grammar has four levels for students to work through, each more challenging than the last. With each successive level, students grapple with increasingly complex grammatical structures and more advanced vocabulary. Students may work independently, moving through the levels at their own pace, or as advised by a teacher or parent.

Level 1: Students build sentences with articles, nouns, pronouns and verbs in the present tense.

Level 2: Students expand their sentences with adjectives, direct objects, and past and future verb tenses.

Level 3: Students add prepositional phrases to both noun phrases and verb phrases.

Level 4: Students build sentences that incorporate adverbs and progressive verb tenses.

Students are motivated by the opportunity of moving up a level and by expressing themselves creatively in the context of their peers. With an ample and rich vocabulary at their fingertips, kids can learn grammar and have fun all at the same time. Go Grow Grammar!
