Welcome to the Space Blocks.

Welcome to the Space Blocks game demo.

This learning game was created using the Genie content authoring tool. Just like magic, Genie empowers you to create high-impact, mobile-ready and super engaging learning content quicker than ever before. Better still, no technical expertise is required.

Simply add your content, construct your learning experience and select your template with a single click. When you’re ready, you can export your learning game or microunit as a SCORM 1.2, SCORM 2004, xAPI or cmi5 file.


Fixed Action Rewards Games

F.A.R games are games that can only be played once a set of actions have been completed. In other words, by consuming all the associated learning content, users unlock the game itself. This approach has two key benefits:

  • Learners are incentivised to make progress through your content by the reward of new gameplay activity. Gated games act as a carrot for continued professional development.
  • Learning is kept separate from gameplay. This means learners can apply all their focus to the task at hand, rather than switching back and forth between activities.

As such, these games are perfect for content creators who have complex ideas or topics to explore. This is the way to go if you need your learners to apply deep focus to your content.


Ready for Liftoff!

This space-themed variant of Mental Blocks is astronomically fun. With Space Blocks, learners will need to guide their rocket through the cosmic abyss, collecting score-boosters and avoiding space debris as they go.

Colliding with this detritus can impact your score and inflict any number of impediments on your best made efforts. To master this game, you’ll need focus, dexterity and a small slice of luck. Succeed, however, and you’ll feel over the moon!


Gaining by Gaming

Learning games appeal to our natural desire for competition, collaboration and mastery. That’s why they work for learners of all ages and from all walks of life. They’ve also been shown to release feel-good chemicals that put you in the perfect headspace for learning.

Whether you’re using learning games as a reward for hard work, or to help drive focus, one thing’s clear: they should be a part of your training arsenal.


Fixed Action Reward games can only be played once:

  • a set of actions have been completed.
  • you've changed in to your gym kit.
  • your working day is done.
