This video game is based on real situations in the world of scientific research, such as the interesting task of collecting samples around the world. Your goal will be to collect as many fruit flies as possible from different regions of the world. You will receive an initial scholarship (credits) that you must manage smartly and effectively, taking into account the possible situations or setbacks in each region; in addition to expenses such as capture equipment, food for your flies, travel, public relations, fees and other necessary expenses in each region. If you need it, you can get more financing (credits) by applying for scholarships in the form of simple but useful questionnaires (trivia).
You will also find further details on what is done with the flies, as well as information on important concepts such as NATURAL SELECTION, MUTATIONS, DNA, VARIABILITY, MOBILE ELEMENTS, and more.
