Enabling Play is a tiny accessible games studio set up by brother and sister team Will and Cara Jessop. We designed our game with the help of children with learning difficulties, to make sure it is fun and beneficial for them.
About Millie Moreorless
The Amazing Adventures of Millie Moreorless is a game we developed with help from children with Down’s Syndrome to make sure it was accessibly paced and engaging for them.
It is based on new research which suggests the ability to tell which is ‘more’ from two groups of objects - or dots! - is a key foundational skill for later maths ability.
Basic maths is a fundamental requirement of an independent life. So by making a game to help young children with Down’s Syndrome get better at magnitude, we are really setting out to equip them with the skills to live a more independent and fulfilled life.

Seeing player improvement
In Millie Moreorless, we have kept our scoring system simple and encouraging. Whenever a player completes a level, Millie celebrates with a dance! If a player completes a level with over 80% correct answers, they win a souvenir too.
You can see how well your child is scoring simply by looking at the home planets screen - any level with a star on it has been completed with a score of over 80% correct answers. Hurray!
The difficulty in the game increases as the number of dots shown gets closer together each level, moving from a ratio of 1v4 in the first water world towards a ratio of 4v5 in the last moon levels.
