Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this trivia game makes it easy for adults and kids to play together by providing different difficulty levels for each player. The zany characters from Madagascar add to the fun.
What's it about?
MADAGASCAR ANIMAL TRIVIA DVD GAME, played on a television using a DVD player, combines outstanding educational video content from National Geographic with the zaniness of the characters from the Madagascar movie. The DVD creates a virtual game board and game pieces so there are no small parts or cards to track.
Players start by selecting a level of difficulty appropriate to their age or knowledge. As players take turns answering questions -- usually by pressing "Enter" on the DVD remote -- the game continues to adjust the difficulty depending on how the player answers questions. A video clip of a funny-looking horned beetle might be follow by a question on whether the "rhinoceros" beetle is for real. Or, after showing a video of a family of wood storks, players are asked whether these birds get too heavy to fly.
Is it any good?
As with the two previous DVD games created by the b EQUAL company, this DVD game features "Dynamic Leveling" technology. With "Dynamic Leveling" parents and kids of different ages play together on an even playing field. If a player continuously answers questions correctly, the questions get harder. Miss a few, and the questions get easier.
