Yodel-Oh! Math Mountain - fun math drill exercise disguised as a carnival game

My 10-year-daughter Jane and I love Yodel-Oh!, an iOS target tapper game where you have to keep a Swiss mountain climber from falling off the edge of a cliff. The developer, Spinlight, just announced a spin-off, called Yodel-Oh! Math Mountain (iPad, iPhone) that adds the challenge of having to solve arithmetic problems.

The game is gorgeous, and one of the best things about it is that is free of the annoying crap that many iOS games are larded with: 3rd party add-ons, social network links, location tracking, and in-app purchases. Thanks, Spinlight!


  1. If your kid is into it, then cool, but it kinda bothers me that even with all our high-tech touch-screen technology most math games out there still seem to be multiple choice. From the screenshot, I don’t get the feeling that this game will help anyone understand WHY 4 x 9 is 36. It’s just rote learning.
