Xenon Crowe

Description

The planet Xenon is a harsh environment where only the strongest of crowes can survive.

The goal of Xenon Crowe is to survive as long as you can. Players use the accelerometer on their phone to search the environment for life sustaining bugs. The more bugs they catch, the longer they survive.

The game teaches concepts about foraging theory, search images, prey distinction, and learning.
