Sushi Monster provides a fun way to practice addition and multiplication. The app stars a hungry monster to whom players must feed a combination of numbered sushi plates that add or multiply to a target number. In each round, players will have to combine the available sushi plates into several sums or products that are listed in the top left corner of the screen. If players are not careful about how they feed the sushi monster, they might find themselves unable to create those target numbers with the remaining sushi plates, since the plates are not regenerated throughout the round. This additional challenge beyond simply making sums or products lends a strategic dimension to the game.

Sushi Monster engages players with its increasingly difficult levels and cute monster characters. Each unlocked level brings a new monster with it. Some may find that completing later levels in the allotted time is too tricky and frustrating, even with the available hints. If that is the case, there is an option in the app's settings to turn the timer off.
