This game is amazing!!! It's almost like u are a cell. Is there gonna be a Cell Defense Membrane 2? I would love to play it
10/10 master piece
This helped me not fail a bio quiz.
A good learning tool
For middle grade levels, this is a very good visualization tool that will engage the Type III and IV learners in the classroom (the concrete, hands-on learners). Does a good job explaining how membrane components work together to keep a cell alive, how each component works (and why), and engages the user for each step. The only downside are the iADs. Yes, they can be dismissed by tapping an x-close, but this is tedious, intrusive, and welcomes problems in a classroom setting as students are likely to inadvertently (or deliberately) tap an ad be get derailed. Easily a five-star app if they'd just lose the ads!
