    Cyberchase Shape Quest is a free app from the PBS network in America and is related to one of their animated series.  The series follows a group of children who help “Mother Board” protect cyber space from “The Hacker”.  The game, however is only loosely related to this narrative but instead focuses on understanding of shape and angles.  The app consists of three games that each cover different areas of shape and angle and is suitable for a range of abilities. The games begin at quite an easy level but progresses to some quite challenging concepts and skills.  The first of the three is an engaging augmented reality game where children need to use a range of shapes to patch holes in a path.  There is also a hide and seek game that tests children’s understanding of shape names and their properties. The final game could be used to look at angles but seem to have less direct educational value than the first two.
