Polinizapp is a game that simulates the pollination process of flowers in nature. The player becomes a pollinating insect with two objectives: to get life and to accumulate points. Life is produced by contact with the flowers, since they have pollen and nectar, sources of their food. Life becomes playing time. Points are earned only by contact with flowers belonging to their "target species". To generate 1 point, the insect has to contact at least 2 target flowers of the same species. At the end of the game, these points will become seeds, since the fertilization of the gametes of the plant will have been performed in the process. Polinizapp is an educational game offered by the Royal Botanic Garden of Madrid and the IMEDEA (Mediterranean Institute for Advanced Studies) and funded by the FECYT.
