Educator Review(s)

Evaluation Instructions: Students use their student rubric (just click on the underlined word) as do educators. Once you determine the level of achievement of this game, select whether it is a Rock Star (2 points), OK (1 point), or not OK. These are used to calculate the Gamified Score that will be shared at the top. If you have anything to note about any aspect, include it in your review below. If you're an educator, you may help your students write the review. Just make sure you're not affiliated with a game according to our site guidelines.


The purpose of this game is to help students learn the names and locations of the countries of Europe. Players place the countries in their correct spot on a map. Feedback is immediate and shows the correct location if placed incorrectly. There is isn’t much for story line, collaboration, or problem solving. It does serve its purpose in a motivating way. I personally enjoyed playing this game. @DonnaMassin

This game is made to help students of all ages learn the different regions of Europe and help learn where the different countries are. It was a ok game but was very basic I would say this is recommended for children in middle school.-Deese2017 2/21/14
