October. 2012: Xylem and Phloem LLC is proud to announce Isopod: The Roly Poly Science Game, for the iPad. While many insect games exist urging the player to squash and kill every creature in site, Isopod: The Roly Poly Science Game requires the player to do just the opposite. In fact, it actually teaches about protection of biodiversity as you save endangered insects and other notabley facinating arthropods.

The game uses these creepy crawly critters as a starting point to explain a very big concept: Biodiversity is a simple measurement by which we can evaluate the health of our planet. While the idea is certainly not new, creating a fast-paced, tilt-physics controlled game experience on the iPad most definitely is, and Isopod is being received with rave reviews.
