This is a great idea for helping to engage students in doing some consolidation questions on area, perimeter and volume. This would need to be conducted in a computer room, the instructions are very clear on how to use it. It is a shame that the questions are a bit of an 'add on' and they are not related to the story of the game. That said this would make a nice revision lesson in the computer room and I really like that at the end of the game students are given some strengths and weaknesses. Thank you for sharing.
