Abstract:


Playing is an essential part of human culture, even Art related applications on mobile devices are mostly
more so nowadays with computer-based games. Gaming is also
regarded as an effective means to transfer knowledge and
spark interest in a particular topic. This family of games is
referred to as educational games and serious games. In this
paper we describe the design and evaluation of a mobile casual,
level-based game called ARTournament conveying basic
concepts of art history. Analyzing player performance on
various levels we are able to demonstrate that ARTournament
successfully transfers knowledge about art history to the exhibition-related polls. Creating games with educational players.
