BodyQuest, the educational adventure game about the human body from Didactoons, has now released for iOS and Android devices after it was announced to be coming to mobile last week.
The game is set in the year 2134, where a mysterious flu has spread across the planet and your best friend has fallen ill. You play as one of the four main characters: Max, Jin, Lia and Zev, as they enter the human body using nanotechnology to cure him, and you also learn heaps about the human body and how we function on the inside as well.
Since it’s a game intended for educational purposes, BodyQuest is for children aged 6 to 12 and is designed to be incredibly accessible to use as a resource in the classroom. The game uses traditional video game mechanics along with educational activities for both adults and children. It’s split into 25 levels, five for each part of the human body: Musculoskeletal, Digestive, Respiratory, Nervous and Circulatory.
Check out the trailer for BodyQuest below.
BodyQuest also takes the player’s age into account, tailoring the challenge to their knowledge. This means older children will get more questions appropriate to their age compared to the younger ones.
For those who enjoy customisation too, the game rewards you for your efforts of clearing levels and finding collectibles with new in-game scooters, tools and accessories.
Previously available on the Nintendo Switch, BodyQuest seems like the perfect tool to teach your children about human biology. It is available now to download from the iOS App Store and the Google Play for Android store, where it is a paid title costing £4.99.
