Isopod: The Roly Poly Science Game
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 full version has the levels available depending upon completion. The 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.
Env1: Beetles will come to you if you can stay in one general area. Bumping the blue butterfly means you can go anywhere quickly without a problem but make sure you are not behind an ant line when the power runs out.
Env 2: Follow the yellow butterfly as much as possible, bump whenever you get a chance and free as many gladiators as you can in your enlarged and invulnerable state.
Env 3: Learning to bump twice is easy enough, but when multiple katydids are on screen a good strategy is to bump each one once, and then come back and bump again later, if you can move fast enough.
Env 4: When the millipede stops, get far away...the cyanide gas has an extended reach. Also, wait until a group of 8-10 fireflies appears all at once before bumping the female glowworm power up, that way you can free a bunch at once.
