The Elements Tournament is a concept for an educational app for pupils completing Key Stage 2 of the National Curriculum. The game challenges pupils to work individually and also as a team against Master Empedo and his warriors in the virtual Elements' world. It aims to provide a fun, interactive and informative way to revise and test knowledge whilst also being nicely competitive.
The Elements game can be played individually or as part of a team. Each student must create an individual character and help to create their team identity for the tournament. The student is then randomly assigned one of the elements, each of which represent different types of school subjects.
Students must answer a variety of question types such as multiple choice, true or false, labelling diagrams and timed questions in order to score points. For every incorrect answer the power of the character is slowly reduced, as well as deducting points. Other challenging factors within the game include player lock-ins for some incorrect answers and the option of buying back captured team mates. These help to make the tournament competitive, fun and different each time it is played. The final individual score will then be added to their overall team score and then entered into a national leader board to see how their team fared against others across the UK.
