Xenon Crowe

Become the Xenon Crowe and hunt the animals of Xenon to learn about the different types of defenses that animals evolve and how they protect them from predators.


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.


This game is designed as a single player game. It can be used as homework to introduce the topic prior to class (a flipped classroom style of learning) where the results can be discussed in class. Alternatively, it can be played in class to coincide with the collection of data in real time to allow students to gain insight into their decisions in real time.
