Praise for the web version, “Do I Have a Right?”:
"This game is sooooooooo fun!:) It is really great because you can actually get to know the Amendments pretty well."
"We played this game in class, and i loved it… this is an awesome way of learning the amendments!!"
"I had a class play the Do I Have a Right? game and I was amazed at how much they enjoyed it. I had 12 and 13 year old boys and girls begging me to let them play it. As a former lawyer, now 7th grade social studies teacher, I loved it as well--especially the touches of being able to caffeinate the attorneys for more productivity---and that the students really did learn the amendments. Needless to say I have used it every year since for my Bill of Rights unit."
--NY 7th grade social studies teacher/former lawyer
"I particularly like Do I Have a Right. It really gets the Bill of Rights ingrained in their brains. I have even had students ask if I would assign the games as homework and give points for high scores. Keep up the great work."
--Virginia Beach, Virginia teacher
What's New in Version 2.0.4
Fixed several content issues
This is a great game for adults and kids!
This is a very fast paced game that keeps you on your toes! It's a great game and fun way to learn or refresh your memory of our many amendments, personal rights and governing laws. It definitely mixes education with time management skills.(to curb frustration in the beginning, you may want to take notes on each lawyers skills and expertise so you don't waste time or lose clients!) Its a game that you will want to play again & again!
I just wish each "session" would last longer- as soon as you have built up a successful firm and have the hang if it, it abruptly ends- giving you a status report on your knowledge, strengths and weaknesses- cases won/lost, etc- which is neat to see, but then you have to start another one. It would be FAR more enjoyable to be able to have one continuous game, with some 'Sims' like interactions- maybe play against other lawyers/firms...? One defending one prosecuting and add bonuses as you play and win cases, along with game upgrades, etc. I think that would really enhance the playing experience.
But for now, it's really fun & pleasantly addicting. :)
Bugs fixed, wonderful experience now!
I felt the need to rewrite my review, in the previous version they had a bug with the 2nd amendment that made me think there was an agenda. But, after I wrote them, I got a very quick response. The web version of the game did not share this bug, and they were working on a fix. In less than a week, the update ws out, fixing the issue, and settling it for me - it was a mistake, not an agenda.
So now, the game, the lessons taught, as well as the customer service and communication, well, they all rate an A+ by me.
Thanks for fixing this great teaching game!
Fun but short.
My school supplies students with iPads and they said we can download games but they have to be educational so I'm usually shopping for apps in the educational section of the App Store. When I found this, I got pretty excited because I'm interested in law games/sims. I was extremely disappointed when I beat the game in one sitting. The game stops the game and deletes your save when you hit a certain point. I have seen other fun games that pretty much stop after a certain point but they still allow you to build on your file. This game would be a lot better if there were more levels and more upgrades to get.
