The Life Cycle of Malaria

The Life Cycle of Malaria is an edutainment game that informs players about malaria in a creative manner. By allowing players to role-play as the mosquito and the malaria parasite, and interacting with different stages of the disease's life-cycle, this application offers an alternative way of learning about malaria.

-------------------------------
- Edutainment, aims to be educational as well as entertaining.
- Great alternative to traditional linear mediums (like books, videos), as it lets players interact and learn.
