Futaba Classroom Games is the only multi-player game of its kind on the iTunes App Store!
Up to 4 students can cooperatively learn using just one iPad. Each child takes a seat around the iPad and taps in to start. The game begins as images and questions spin into the playing area. The first player to answer correctly scores a point. Win 3 rounds and earn a Futaba (a small ‘seedling’).
Futaba also includes a single player practice mode - a great way to study at home or in the classroom (see our screenshots below).
NEW - Futaba Cloud Service - it's now easier than ever to create and share games with other iPads in your classroom.
