This week Google Arts and Tradition launched a brand new sport for college kids. The sport is named The Descent of the Serpent and it is accessible to play in your internet browser or within the Google Arts and Tradition apps for Android and iOS. 

The Descent of the Serpent is a sport by means of which college students can study civilizations of historical Mesoamerica. College students play the sport from the angle of one in every of 4 characters consultant of mythological figures in Mesoamerican tradition. College students then navigate by means of 4 ranges of the sport in a quest to seek out and get well twenty misplaced objects and return them to Chichen Itza earlier than the photo voltaic equinox. 

The sport play of The Descent of the Serpent is just a little paying homage to Legend of Zelda (sure, I understand that is a reference level that dates me as a late Gen-Xer). Gamers navigate by means of scenes whereas making an attempt to dodge obstacles and objects of their quest to seek out the lacking artifacts. When gamers discover an artifact they’re proven just a little little bit of details about its historical past and significance. 

The Descent of the Serpent might be performed in story mode or in problem mode. The story mode permits gamers to maintain taking part in no matter what number of instances they hit a dead-end or get hit by an object. The problem mode offers gamers simply 5 “lives” earlier than they lose the sport and have to start out over. 

Functions for Training
I performed The Descent of the Serpent for about quarter-hour this morning then needed to drive myself to cease as a result of I might have simply gone down a rabbit gap of taking part in it for for much longer (notice, I am not skillful when it comes taking part in video video games typically). I discovered the little pop-ups of data after discovering every artifact attention-grabbing. That mentioned, I take a look at the sport as a enjoyable technique to introduce college students to historical Mesoamerican historical past and never as a substitute for full classes.
