EASTON, Pa., Aug. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Suntex International, creator of the 24® Game and the First in Math® online program, today announced the release of the 24 Game Version 2.0 for iOS and Android mobile devices. Now available in the Apple iTunes store and the Google Play store, the 24 Game app offers new multiplayer action that lets players compete against their Facebook friends or against other competitors worldwide in head-to-head challenges.
The Original 24 Game, introduced in 1988, has grown into a complete line of math education tools used by more than 10 million students worldwide. Proven to engage kids and adults of all ability levels, the 24 Game helps players not only to become fluent in math fundamentals, but also to grow as critical thinkers and problem solvers.
The 24 Game App's new multiplayer feature captures the excitement of competition and promotes a sense of community. The Single Player mode enables unlimited practice to prep for venturing out to the Multiplayer Mode via Facebook or Global challenges.
"The updated 24 Game Version 2.0 for iOS and Android works just like the card game everybody loves—solve your card faster to win that card and earn points," said Barbara Asteak, vice president of Suntex International. "As players win cards and accumulate points, they can climb the leaderboard, view their global rankings, and see how their stats stack up against other players worldwide."
In addition to the new multiplayer option, the game offers 130 new and never before seen cards—along with a few hidden gems. Other improvements include:
- Players receive Bonus Points by unlocking Achievement Awards
