Best known for his demolition and build skills as one of television’s MythBusters, Tory Belleci dives into the world of mobile gaming today with the introduction of 'Tory Odyssey'. The app is designed for 8-12 year-old kids and takes them on an adventure ride that challenges them to have fun while applying their math and science knowledge to win the game.
Set in a post-apocalyptic desert, the game challenges kids to make it out of the desert and to the safety of an island with Tory as their guide. Along the way, the kids get tips and advice from Mr. D The Mad Professor, played by world-renowned science educator and textbook author Michael DiSpezio. Features like driving through a desert obstacle course, testing their vehicles acceleration and using rockets to blast themselves over a minefield make 'Tory Odyssey' a really unique gaming experience. Take a look for yourself.
