More About This Product

Overview

This application is recommended for ages 10+.

Xylem and Phloem LLC, is proud to announce "Isopod: The Roly Poly Science Game". This truly unique app is best described as an integrated synthesis between arcade-quality gameplay and scientific encyclopedia, with the intention of inspiring a fascination with insects and their relationship to a variety of life science subjects.

This teacher's version has all the levels unlocked including the learning center.

Playing the game is instant access to fun: The Isopod rolls up into ball and is then controlled by accelerometer-based "tilt-physics" that transforms the android into a game controller. As the user rolls and bumps their way through levels, new environments filled with indigenous creatures appear. Every interactive element has its own set of topic pages, and new topics open as the player succeeds in gameplay.

Explore photos, links and much more in the Isopod Learning Center, featuring 24 scientific topics, with a deep focus on the interconnected world of entomology and ecosystems. Also covered are topics such as bioluminescence, mycology, camouflage and more. The topics covered are authored by a variety of professionals, entomologists, researchers, biologists, teachers as well as Xylem and Phloem LLC staff.

Isopod: The Roly Poly Science Game features 24 photo-realistic, interactive creatures inhabiting their natural environments from other locations around the world.

Isopod is a physics-controlled roly poly science game that feels a bit like many of the popular marble/maze apps you might have played. However, instead of a wooden box with walls, Isopod takes place in a realistic nature setting with the goal of saving important insects, not killing them. Each interactive element in the game has a topic written about it, penned by a variety of authors including biologists, teachers, researchers and entomologists. Parents will delight in the fact that Isopod is not just a game, but a carefully constructed science lesson that covers, in detail, much of the scientific data associated with each animal featured in the game. Kids will be shocked that one of their edu-games is actually fun and loaded with quality arcade-style gameplay. For home schoolers, its a fantastic plan of study in entomology designed to be enjoyed by both child and educator. Isopod aims to inspire a new generation of tech-savvy children to explore the wonders of the natural world, and to value the creative beauty of real science.
