Customer Reviews

Very Nice!

I learned a lot I didn't know about electricity generation. For example, I didn't realize the underpinnings of hydro were so complex. It's not just water flowing over a dam and turbines.

Would love to see some statistics of what fraction of our current power grid is provided by each of the sources shown. Maybe even display an historical time series of that information to see what are the up-and-coming sources, and what sources are on their way out.

Can't wait to share with the kids!

Great app but crashes every time

Nice content if it would just stay open

Bad Game

The graphics are bad and I knew all of this and it was not helpful at all.
