What should “games” add to this medical blog? They may attract more people especially those who do not have medical background or interests. Of course, posting an interesting item for the public may not be an easy job, but the question always is how fine and useful that idea or post could be.
I got the idea of this “game” a couple of years ago and it seems now nice as a medical blog post. Indeed, computer games did give me here some inspiration. Now with some reflection, playing games may have healthy aspects other than spending a pleasant time. Let’s discover this view together.
Falling sick is usually a complicated process in the sense that more than one offending enemy may take part. The person should be quite healthy and fine as long as he/ she keeps open eyes and can take guard of those enemies adequately in time. Lacking appropriate response or being too slow may draw the person to risks, disease or even be life threatening.
Many players are expected to share in the game, but for necessity reasons a single player may also be practical.
Mode of the game
The mode is quite flexible where face masks, pictures or name cards can be used. Of course, game computerizing is also fine.
In the dark room there are always ten enemies (ghosts) but only one enemy can attack at a time. The player has to react adequately to attacking ghost within 3 seconds.
The player has a health credit of 100 at the beginning of the game. Losing 5-15 points means unnoticeable damage; 20-35 noticeable damage; and 40-50 serious damage and losing the game.
