The gophers are coming, the gophers are coming! In this vibrant, kid-friendly tower defense game designed to dust off the ol' graphing skills, you defend a carrot from waves of hungry gophers, who need to be fed until they burst into rainbows.

Plot points on the graph to reveal your enemy's marching path, dig up valuable rubies, and place upgradeable towers to keep your carrot safe from the waves of starving critters.

Game Over Gopher is developed by Learning Games Lab.

Game Over Gopher is an exciting tower defense game built around the coordinate grid. To defend a prize carrot, the player selects various tools to "feed" the space gophers marching hungrily toward it. Game Over Gopher guides students in plotting coordinate pairs, differentiating negative coordinates from positive coordinates, and identifying the four quadrants. It helps establish the fundamentals of plotting functions on a grid. We recommend it for students who are struggling to understand the coordinate grid or those who just want to become more comfortable with graphing.
