    With various levels which consist of puzzles, mazes and different kinds of anti-matter monsters to battle, Big Bang Legends is extremely easy to navigate, making it suitable for children and adults alike.

    Kids progress through the various levels to collect a total of 118 characters, which represent elements of the periodic table. After collecting each character, kids can read about what element they represent and what their chemical make up is – all of which is delivered in a simple yet fun way.

    The creators claim that kids as young as two years old can play the game.

    Before it was released, Big Bang Legends was tested by students from the Stamford American International School (SAIS).

    Teachers found that in just a short 30 minutes, their students were able to have active discussions about the elements they were learning about through the game.

    In fact, there will soon be a teacher’s guide made available for Big Bang Legends so that the game can be incorporated into schools’ curriculum

    Apple users get first dibs, but Android will have access from May 2017.
    The game is free to download, but for a monthly subscription of S$1.49, you can get it ad-free and have access to bite-sized 30-second videos which feature content specially made by professors from Oxford University and the European Council for Nuclear Research (CERN).

    Each video delivers information about particle physics in a short and direct way allowing the child to absorb and understand content which may otherwise seem difficult.
