Sci­ence Kom­bat www.bit.ly/scikom­bat

Brazil­ian sci­ence-and-cul­ture mag­a­zine Su­per­in­ter­es­sante cov­ers its sub­ject mat­ter in a light, ac­ces­si­ble fash­ion. It’s an ethos that car­ries over well from the styleguide to this charm­ingly bonkers fight­ing game that pits sci­en­tific leg­ends against one an­other in a fight to the flash­ing-neon KO screen. Alan Tur­ing sum­mons a fly­ing ro­bot; Steven Hawking has a tele­port; and on this ev­i­dence Pythago­ras had mas­tered the Kame­hameha long be­fore DragonBallZ ar­rived on the scene. It’s not ex­actly an ed­u­ca­tional tool, un­less you want to send your off­spring to school be­liev­ing Isaac Newton’s pi­o­neer­ing role in physics also in­volved shoot­ing rain­bow lasers out of a cane. Those who find the sciences a turnoff might pre­fer Su­per­in­ter­es­sante’s pre­vi­ous game in this mould, the log­i­cally ti­tled Philosofight­ers.
