Conflict: immunity teaches players how the immune system identifies and attacks pathogens in the body. The game starts off with a quick tutorial on what each member of your "army" can do to fight infection, and then moves on to a level where the player switches between the different types of cells to save the body from attack by pathogens. Interspersed between each level are a couple of multiple choice questions to review the information that is being learned in each level. It is fun to see the cells in action, but levels start to feel repetitive after the first few.
Players must pay careful attention to the text in the tutorial, because that is the information that is being tested by the multiple choice questions between each level. The text is NOT repeated during gameplay, even though the actions you take are based on that information. Also, players must be quick in order to succeed, which may frustrate anxious players or those with slow visual processing speed or poor hand-eye coordination.
