Treefrog Treasure

Play a cool, math-based, adventure game for children ages 4 and up, and explore rainforest, cave and desert worlds as you guide a fearless frog in a search for lost jewels while discovering number lines, and comparing and learning fractions, decimals and percentages. Treefrog Treasure is a highly-stimulating, interactive, educational math-based platform game where you must control an acrobatic tree frog as it journeys through a series of tricky, ledge-based tasks featuring fractions and number line problems to be solved.
Your bouncing and energetic tree frog can only overcome (break through) barriers if he leaps at the correct ‘weak point’ in a number line chain. This weak point must first be determined by your logical calculations – which depend on the different numerical clues provided to you.
Reasons to play this fun, point and click, platformer puzzle game: Exercise your math and analytical thinking skills as you figure out where to jump at each barrier in order to progress. Learn about simple fractions, decimals and percentages, and ‘number line’ problems as you guide your frog through 36 difficult levels.
Strategy to win: Combine simple math-based problem solving skills with accurate mouse clicking! Your tree frog hero moves via the clicks of your computer mouse, and can only progress if you choose the correct area on each barrier to attack (based on your mathematical calculations).
How to Play: A Flash-based, math puzzle game for notebook, laptop and desktop PC / Mac (with certain browsers). There are 3 different ‘worlds’ with 12 levels in each – giving 36 levels in total. In each level, your goal is to guide your tree frog hero to the ‘Golden Bug’ situated at the end of the level. However, most levels feature at least one math-based barrier that must be overcome (broken down) in order to successfully reach the Golden Bug.
Control your frog’s movement using your computer mouse / touchpad. Aim using your cursor, and Left Click to initiate a jumping move. When your frog reaches a chain / barrier, he must break through by leaping at a specific ‘weak point’ in the chain. To help you visualize where to attack, think of a barrier as a number line, with the bottom of the barrier representing 0 on the number line.

Next to the barrier, a moving ‘Target’ displays the correct ‘weak point’ on that number line. There are also one or two entries already in place on the number line – These numbers act as clues and helpful indicators.
For example, the weak point ‘target’ might display the fraction 2/5. You can see that the 3/5 and 1/5 points are already displayed on the barrier. Thus, you must leap at the area directly in between the 3/5 and 1/5 areas to hit the correct 2/5 target point! Each time you successfully eliminate a barrier, you earn special colored gemstones. However, if you leap at the wrong area of the barrier, your frog simply bounces off.
Tip: Your frog sticks to normal grey-colored walls, slides off of blue-colored walls, and bounces off of gold-colored walls. Keep this in mind as you leap around each level.
