When deciding which content to select for the iPad game I am expected to develop and story board out, I am choosing the most interesting content (in my opinion anyway). Thus, this will create the most interesting and fun game. Our first assignment in class was to construct an unique and creative game to inspire learning in fourth graders dealing with specific environmental objectives. My group constructed a simple board game outlying different environments and stressing the different food groups. My plan for my iPad game is to use some of the same ideas but construct a touch screen, Internet and gamer friendly alternative version of the board game. I want to utilize some of the ideas from the board game, but will have to develop new, more appropriate ideas to successfully make the game.

So, when developing an iPad game, out of the different objectives that I could chose from, the food chain is the most appealing to me. In addition to the food chain, I may like to include extra information objectives as well to add different aspects to the game. This type of information includes contamination and other fun things about different environments and their specific food chains. My ultimate goal is for players to have an opportunity to gain a lot of information on several different but related topics. Adding in different information about environments will add more of a fun element. Using realistic and vivid graphics will allow players to feel like they are really in the game.
