I GOT THIS, created by UC Berkeley’s The Lawrence Hall of Science, is an interactive, first-person, educational story that follows a young teenage girl who discovers that she has type 2 diabetes, one of the fastest growing diseases in the US and around the world. Told in a real-world setting, I GOT THIS focuses on the causes, symptoms, prevention, and social aspects of the life-changing disease. I GOT THIS was created with funding from the National Institutes of Health, in collaboration with the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland, and using advice from curriculum developers at the Hall and Tufts University.

Wish there were more stories!!

I think it’s a great app! It’s so important to bring light to subjects such as diabetes. However, I wish there were MORE stories on there. It’s a bit weird that there’s only one story. And as a result, I no longer have the app since I have finished the story.

What the flip is with you haters!

Before I start my actual review, I want to point out some reviews. "This is racist" How is it racist? It doesn't have a big role in the story! "You're fat" Uh... no. And if you hope everyone reading that dies, News Flash: EVERYONE DIES. What a groundbreaking discovery! (sarcasm) This game is too short. Yeah, it is short, but do you think everyone playing this informative game would want to see completely random sit-ups if they are using it for homeschool? You would answer no. Anyway, now onto the real review. This app is great, I like the story line. This app is great!

Fun and Informative

While it's not the longest game (I just played through the whole thing in twenty minutes), "I Got This" is a good starting point for educating kids about Diabetes. With fun, retro graphics and music, and a relatable main character, the app tells an interesting and entertaining story that all ages can take something away from. It's not an exhaustive source of information that explores every possible cause of Diabetes; rather it's a well-made tool to spread basic awareness about an increasingly widespread disease. Well done to the creators for this unique idea.
