Game Content

    Description:

    My Culture Quest opens up the world of museums and galleries, giving you the opportunity to explore objects from many different countries and answer questions correctly in order to create your own exhibition.

    On the adventure you are aided by one of the mini museum guides; choose from the language expert Manaza, the very intelligent Ravi or the navigator Suzi. Points awarded depend on collecting similar objects from different cultures, objects with the same theme (conflict, religion, celebrations) and the number of objects. This scoring system encourages you to think about themes that affect both your community and other communities around the world. It will also show you how all cultures around the world, including your own can all be linked in a variety of different ways.

    Once you have finished collecting objects they will be arranged into an exhibition. You will then be given a score based on the success of the exhibition. You can even enter your name on the international scoreboard.

Review: It was really easy but it was a fun game. Plus you gain a superior knowledge of art pieces as you play. It would be a good game for an elementary class.

Review: This game was very straight-forward and very easy to play, as well. Though it was interesting to see and learn about the different pieces of fine art, the game wasn't challenging enough to be considered a high school level game.(The suggested grade levels on the site are from grades 6-10.) The object of the game is to collect as many pieces of artwork as you can, and bring them back to the museum that you start the game in. You collect these pieces by traveling to different cities around the world, and correctly answer multiple choice questions about the pieces--right after a short summary about the piece appears on the screen. All in all, I would recommend this game for upper-level elementary classrooms--grades 4-5, as well as middle school--grades 6-8.
