Game Idea Reflection

  • Who are you designing your game for? (Include the player's age, abilities, and prior knowledge of your topic.) I am designing my game to teach teenagers like myself to stay away and don't get addicted to drugs.
  • What will your game teach the player about your topic? (Be specific!) How a lot of kids do drugs and what the use and how it is bad.
  • Where does your game happen? It happens one a black background i made in flash.
    • Describe the world you will design for your game. It just will be a black background and i will put everything else in bright colors.
    • How will this setting add to the learning experience? I don't think it really will but it might hep them learn more with bright colors.
  • How does your game world teach the player about your topic? It will teach the player about drugs and teen drug addiction and stuff with a facts page.
    • What happens in the world that helps the player learn? They will have fun and to keep playing they will have to answer questions.
    • How does the player use what they learned to make something happen in the game? They will have to answer questions to keep playing.
  • Why is a game a better way of understanding your topic than a quiz? It is better because you learn more by playing and having fun not just a boring quiz.

March Of The Penguins

1. I think they have to over come the walking to mate, like that is far to walk to mate 70 miles is far. I think they need to also overcome the weather because they carry the egg and they could die and kill the egg to.

2. The challenges they have are food they have to go like 4 months with out food that is crazy. The predators are also another challenge for them because when they get food they can get eating by their predator. 

3. They can get together and all huddle to get warmth, and they can all team up against the predator so they can in a way jump him and fight back and he just might swim away.

4. There is a period of time where there is no light because the earth is tilted and orbits around the sun.

5. It has to be a thick layer of ice because if not the baby penguins could possibly fall in the freezing water.

6. It  can negatively mess up the whole process of mating and making baby's because it can be too cold for the baby or something.
