Kids' Mission: Stop the Virus from Spreading
Daughter of a brilliant scientist, Darienne Clay finds herself shipwrecked at sea after a university research vessel meets with disaster. Luckily, she washes up on the shores of an abandoned island. While searching the island, she stumbles upon the reason the island is abandoned. A military biotech experiment went awry, infecting the island with bizarre creatures seemingly fused from nature and technology. Now, the 'experiment' threatens to spread into the ocean.

Darienne assembles a team of crack scientists and inventors for a return to Xeno Island to search for clues and a way to end the threat. As part of that team, you'll need your gaming skills and brainpower to crack the codes protecting the virus and its origins.

In Missions 1--5, you and the team land on the island and try to decipher the mysteries found around every corner. You must break the code to bypass a security system and access the Research and Development Facility. Using math skills that grow as you investigate the island, you'll check energy readings, crack codes, strap on a jet pack, and fly through the trees.

Darienne and her team need to stay focused. Guardians are lurking around every corner watching for you.

Use your helmet visor to uncover the math underlying objects.
