2014 2014 IEEE Games Media Entertainment  
"The Code of Everand" (Dunwell et al., 2014) , for example, is a game for children that is mostly an ordinary game about fantastic monsters.  ...  However, its gameplay also serves as a metaphor for road safety, and the game requires players to cross road-like "spirit channels" without hitting any of the dangerous monsters that travel through them  ...  Press the 1 key to change to a side perspective 3.
