Build mental maths power and problem solving strategies... while having fun!

Numbers Up! Volcanic Panic V2 box
BESSIE Award Winner
EDDIE Award winnerNPC Seal of Approval

Your plane has just crash-landed on a volcanic island that’s about to blow! Race round the island grabbing fuel canisters and, with some sneaky strategy and some luck, you’ll zoom off in the jet-powered escape pod. Complete activities to earn credits, buy sneaky gadgets and get the fuel, but watch out! Quick Quiz Squares, Prison, and other surprises could see someone else grab the escape pod, while you’re left with the life raft.

Award winner

Master the world of numbers as you race against time and outwit your competitors. Fuel your escape pod and flee the coming volcanic eruption in this exciting single and multiplayer game. Get started straight out of the box, or take advantage of the powerful diagnostic and reporting capabilities to zero in on each child’s learning needs.

  • Vary the gameplay to your level and interest by choosing one of the five graded game boards
  • Play independently OR with others using the unique multiplayer mode: up to four players of diverse abilities set their own maths level and compete with an equal chance of winning. Let the fun begin!
  • Each player competes at their own maths level, so every player has a real chance of winning. Match 6-year-old Tina’s tables against Peter’s proportion and Dad’s decimals!
  • Elements of chance and strategy mean any player can win, not just the best mathematician
  • Use the 10 types of quirky gadgets to your advantage but watch out for other players. Try to pinch other players’ fuel, stop them from pinching yours, swap positions, triple your dice roll, and more
  • Use strategy, skill and sneaky gadgets to win!

Teacher Reviews

“What a huge win for our school. We couldn’t be more happy or impressed by Numbers Up! Volcanic Panic and Numbers Up! Baggin’ the Dragon. The children think they are fantastic and fun to play. From a teacher’s perspective the software is great. The games allow multiple players, have fantastic graphics and sound. The fact that the games are syllabus-based is GOLD. Best products on the market by a mile.” – Coley White, Teacher


Parent Reviews

“What is brilliant about Volcanic Panic is that it teaches the language of maths – less than, more than, after, etc. rather than just the number bonds. My 6 year-old is autistic and is very able on the latter, but struggles with the language. He absolutely loves this game and is learning without realising it.” – John Smith, Parent, Buckinghamshire UK


Student Reviews

“Numbers Up! Volcanic Panic is a great computer game. I especially liked the little space ship. It is cool … And I liked where we had a shop on the island and all the cool stuff that was in it like the Teleporter and other things. It is a great, exciting and fun game.” – Sophie, aged 11

“I love Numbers Up! Volcanic Panic. It’s great because it’s fun and exciting. It has great questions and all the people (characters) in the game you can pick are great … It’s a great way for kids to do maths. Thanks.” – Frances, aged 10
