Following the recent release of its final chapter last month, Mayan Mysteries is ranked among the top downloads on iTunes, according to app ranker AppAnnie. Dig-It! Games released the new edition of the cross-curriculum interactive game after a yearlong cliffhanger that had players eager to solve the mystery to save Ich’aak from looters. Now, players around the world are downloading the game that engages all learning styles and brings history to life.
“When we found Mayan Mysteries was a featured game for kids 9-11, we immediately felt our mission to address the educational needs of the important middle-school demographic being reinforced,” said Suzi Wilczynski, president and founder of Dig-It! Games. “The app’s current popularity and player testimonies are proof of Dig-It! Games’ commitment to creating stimulating, high-quality gaming experiences.”
