The purpose of this game is to teach students about the habitats (biomes) that exist on Earth and the organisms that live in them. It is targeted toward upper elementary and middle school students.
This educational game challenges students to match organisms with the correct habitat they are found in. The game takes you around the world to explore the inhabitants from land biomes that range from the deepest dark rainforest to the frozen tundra. You will additionally explore water environments including the sea shore, the coral reef and then venturing out into the open ocean. While doing this you will learn about animals, plants, and even microscopic creatures that live in the variety of biomes that make up the planetary ecosystem we call Earth. Along the way, as you succeed in the game the creatures come to life in comic form and tell jokes related to themselves and the habitat they live in.
The player first selects the type of habitat they want to play with. They then must pick from a random group of cartoon organisms most common to that particular habitat. Players can get from the program informational clues about the organisms. Additionally players can use a button to take the player to the World Wide Web to get information about the organism online. The player is rewarded with a comic about that habitat every time they correctly place four organisms and click the reward button. Habitats can be played multiple times before all the organisms are correctly matched.
