Engagement Is the product stimulating, entertaining, and engrossing? Will kids want to return?

Simple presentation and some very meaty logical concepts make this game a tricky one to get into. However, if kids can crack its foreboding shell they'll likely find the puzzles inside quite compelling.

Pedagogy Is learning content seamlessly baked-in, and do kids build conceptual understanding? Is the product adaptable and empowering? Will skills transfer?

The chemistry isn't completely authentic, but the logic is rock solid. It's a lot like programming, and players will be able to transfer what they learn here to their work in science, mathematics, and software design.

Support Does the product take into account learners of varying abilities, skill levels, and learning styles? Does it address both struggling and advanced students?

There's a lot to learn upfront, and even with the tutorial it can be hard going. Luckily, there's an active online community for the game, including an solution discussion forum on the official website.
