The game claims to be a relaxing experience for users. We give this royalty to the music and cool graphics of the game. Simple visuals and a soothing background music definitely adds value to the gameplay and put your mind to ease.
The game comes with two modes: Endless and Challenge. Initially, you’ll go through a short tutorial that will guide you to get the full Endless mode available to you, and it’s important to read through the introduction else you’ll be a bit lost by the time you reach higher levels. Endless mode lets players play at their own pace, just solving the puzzles with no end goal in mind. The Challenge mode gives you a set amount of time and you must reach a specific goal (number of diamonds) so it counts as your score. Each time you solve a puzzle, you can either add to the diamond goal or add more time to the clock.
Also, Diffission is integrated with Filament Learning curriculum that’s aligned to Common Core State Standards. Each supplemental curriculum unit includes a Teacher's Guide with discussion activities, workshops, labs, and assessments. Students can also follow along with the included Student Guide, which allows for seamless communication between the lessons and the gameplay.
For educators using the game, it comes with an option to check in on students’ progress with the Filament Learning Teacher Dashboard, which provides visibility into which learning objectives students have encountered, serving as a real-time assessment tool. If students are stuck at any given point, the Teacher Dashboard will explain where the student needs help, so teachers can provide just-in-time intervention when students need it the most.
Other requirements for the game are:
The game works just fine on Windows, Mac, Chromebooks, iPad or Tablets. But, One thing to be kept in mind is that each student will need an individual account in order to preserve, save states and track student progress. Teachers will also need their own accounts to access the games.
We recommend you to try the game and experience learning math in a fresh way.
