Quizalize, the whole-class quiz platform, has an exciting announcement…Quizalize Games are now available for teachers and students around the world!
What are Quizalize Games?
Quizalize Games are a selection of dynamic and fun game overlays that work in conjunction with all regular Quizalize quizzes. Students work through their quizzes as normal, except now they can be motivated by, and enjoy, a variety of games layered over the top of their usual quizzes.
The result? Happy students who WANT to take more quizzes – cementing their attainment levels.
Quizalize Games is launching with a catalog of seven flagship games:
Battlerzz. Journey to a Medieval fantasy land and prepare for the most epic of battles. Set to an enticing soundtrack with epic battle arenas, only the bravest of warriors will triumph in Battlerzz.
The Adventures of Kleo the Koala. The Cosmos is under the rule of the evil Under Creatures. Five brave creatures, led by Captain Kleo the Koala, band together to find The Keys of Light and return light to the Cosmos once more.
Bearzz. Who loves throwing tomatoes at bears?! Get answers right and earn tomatoes to throw at your losing opponent. Get answers wrong? Prepare to be tomato-ed!
Hoopzz. The ultimate basketball game – and a Quizalize classic – is back with a vengeance. Now you can choose from more teams & decide once and for all who is the best at Hoopzz.
Rockzz. Experience a retro arcade game and make sure your classroom spaceship will not get lost in the asteroids. A correct answer shoots a rock and gets your class closer to an epic high score. Guaranteed classic arcade fun for your students (and you too!)
First to the Flag. A fantastic Quizalize game where teams race to answer questions as quickly as possible and get to the flag, becoming the true First to Flag champion. Simple and effective.
Leaderboard. Another classic Quizalize game. As students answer questions correctly they will climb to the top of the Leaderboard. The brand new team mode elevates the previous version and brings it proudly into the Quizalize Games fresh cohort.
Each game can accommodate from 2 – 100 players, with a selection of team-based games able to accommodate up to 50 teams! Classes of all sizes can enjoy playing Quizalize Games, while teachers continue to glean the real-time data insight into each student that Quizalize is known and loved for.
