Deep within the membrane of a giant egg, an ancient and dangerous creature lies dormant - a dragon!
Learn about genetic inheritance as you breed dragon species, complete phenotype missions and meet monstrous creatures in a cloud-hopping sky world! Become the dragon master by breeding all types of dragons.
Dragon Breeder (BETA) is a game where players progress by using the principles of Mendelian Genetics. Breed target dragons, or determine the genotypes of the dragons in your den. Purchase special skills and upgrades, and work your way through a storyline mode that will take your knowledge of genetic principles to their limit. Because the game is written in HTML5, you will need the latest version of whichever browser you use.

I am interested in the usefulness and effectiveness of games in the classroom as a supplemental resource to reinforce concepts, inspire creativity and foster higher-level thinking.
Dragon Breeder is a great resource for understanding reproduction and genes. There is a series of tutorials, about 8, before you play the game. I highly recommend completing them. The game is pretty complex, and you will need to read to complete tutorials and use help menu a lot when first learning to play. Do the developers a favor and be sure to leave comments for improvement ideas.
