Press Release: Dig-It! Games Launches New Family-Friendly Maya Quiz App
BETHESDA, MD (August 4, 2014) – Dig-It! Games, an independent developer of educational, interactive games founded by former archeologist and middle school teacher, introduces Maya Quiz, a new app for the iPad that offers 100 percent historically accurate information about Maya archaeology, history, and culture.
Maya Quiz complements the top ranked Mayan Mysteries (Best New Apps and Games Kids 9-11) to quiz players on their knowledge of five categories of Maya culture: math and time, daily life, religion and government, history, and Central American geography. Featuring more than 100 factual, randomized trivia questions about the Maya, players must answer 10 questions in each category per round of play to prove their mastery of Maya culture.
“Many of our games are student-centered, but we also wanted to provide a family-friendly game that parents will enjoy playing just as much as their children,” said Suzi Wilczynski, President and Founder, Dig-It! Games. “This new app continues our focus on learning in an interactive, fun way and encourages players to develop a strong base of knowledge of ancient cultures.”
Like all of Dig-It! Games’ learning games, Maya Quiz features historically correct information and graphics as well as authentic Mayan music and motifs. Questions focus on artifacts, archaeology, history and culture and are not timed, allowing for research or discussion to select the correct answer. The game can be reset after each round so that players can re-take the quizzes with different questions and learn from mistakes.
Maya Quiz is the fifth game Dig-It! Games has released with a focus on the Maya civilization, and its latest app to reinforce the educational needs of middle-school students. Available for $0.99 on the iTunes store, the app is designed for game play on the iPad 2 or newer.
Loot Pursuit: Pompeii, Loot Pursuit: Tulum, Mayan Mysteries, MayaNumbers, and Can U Dig It! also cater to the specific age-appropriate learning demands of children ages 11 and up. All five iOS apps are available to download on iPad and iPhone devices.
