Consequently, in the subjects of biology and health science; the characteristics, functions and instruments related to health problems with the body system are carried out and they could be difficult and tedious to understand and learn at times since the information provided is excessive. For example, there are definitions, structures, functions and concepts causing boredom and loss of interest. Furthermore, these issues brings as consequence; the deficiency of comprehension and the high percentage of failing grades. Therefore, something had to be done to make this learning process less overwhelming, easier to learn and more fun. The objective was to make a didactic game, named “ANATORAMA” for its meaning of its two words that compose it.
