The last entry in my series of instructional games is Lyrical Genius. Learning a new language can be difficult, this game attempts to inject a little bit of fun into the process. Players are asked to listen to a clip of a popular song and match words on the screen with the correct lyrics.
Players will choose to play as a single player, challenge a friend, or another random player on the internet. They'll select a genre of music or opt to play from a random selection. Hints and instructions will display while the game loads. Once the game has loaded, a timer will display counting down to the start of the song clip.
When the music starts, players will have a limited amount of time to match the lyrics on the screen to what they hear in the clip. Scoring will be affected by consecutive moves without an error.
At the end of each round the score will be displayed and a winner announced. If a player selected to play the single player option, they'll have to beat a pre-determined score based on the difficulty of the lyrics in each clip. A leader board can display the scores of those who play the game.
A leader, learner, and family man, I spend my time learning about instructional design and technology. With a few video games thrown in here and there.
