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.
