Didactoons has announced today BodyQuest, the educational adventure game about the human body, will be coming to iOS and Android devices on 27th May.

Previously released on Nintendo Switch to positive reception, BodyQuest is an adventure game that takes place inside the human body.

Set in the year 2134, a strange disease is spreading across the planet and your best friend has fallen ill. You play as one of four characters; Max, Jin, Lia or Zev, and enter the human body using nanotechnology to find the cure to save him while also learning about how we function on the inside.

With the game’s primary purpose being an educational one, BodyQuest is designed to be incredibly accessible to children aged 6 to 12, and is intended to be a valuable resource for use in the classroom. It is divided into 25 levels, five for each part of the human body: Musculoskeletal, Digestive, Respiratory, Nervous and Circulatory. The game blends traditional video game mechanics with educational activities for the whole family to have fun while learning.

BodyQuest also adapts to the age of its players so that the challenge is tailored to their knowledge, meaning that older children will get more difficult questions than those who are a bit younger. It also rewards effort, so that as levels are cleared and collectibles are earned, you can customise your in-game characters with better scooters, tools and accessories.

If you’re looking for a new tool to teach your children about human biology, particularly how the human body works, then BodyQuest may be a great new way to get them into learning. It will be available for download on the iOS App Store and the Google Play for Android store on 27th May, as a paid title which costs €5.99.
