This role-playing game for your smartphone takes a gamified approach to SAT prep. From mobile game developer Pixelberry Studio, High School Story is a free iOS and Android app that makes preparing for the SAT test more fun for high school students.

With test preparation features like Extra Credit, character-unlocking challenges, minigames and others, the app also enables players to buy rings (the game's currency) to unlock even more premium features. The educational game incorporates social elements into the story as well.

In previous versions of the game, the socially-minded startup addressed issues like cyberbullying and eating disorders. In addition to offering SAT prep, High School Story teaches players to handle their stress levels while studying for important college entrance examinations.
