Game of the Week: Dominant Species

icon175x175Platform: iOS     Cost: $4.99

This week, I looked at a game that has been in the App Store for quite some time. I am on a search for games and simulations that can be used in the classroom. As such, I bit the bullet and purchased Dominant Species for iPad. As a former Science Teacher, and board game geek, I was looking for something that could help to teach evolution and natural selection. Dominant species does just that. Unfortunately, it can be a bit cumbersome for students to learn, as the rules are difficult to follow and hard to grasp in game. Take a look at my video review for examples of the Gameplay mechanic and my overall feelings of Dominant Species as an Educational Game.
