Users do need to sign-in to an account in order to play the game. This includes the teacher who will assign this game via a single link.
This resource downloads as a PDF file that contains the link to the digital game.

The video game theme will instantly grab students’ attention! Students will complete 4 missions in which they solve a variety of questions that require them to use context clues. Each level increases in difficulty of vocabulary words used. If you are looking for a similar game for younger students who are in the beginning stages of understanding how to figure out the meaning of vocabulary words using context, check out this DIGITAL CONTEXT CLUES GAME FOR 2nd & 3rd grade.
Level 1: Words used in context: detest, pudgy, fascinated, concealed, and tranquil.
Level 2: Words used in context: pedestrians, obsolete, palatial, vivid, and plethora.
Level 3: Words used in context: amusing, instigates, lofty, diverted, and candid.

At the successful completion of each level, students receive a secret number. They will need to write these numbers down. Once all 4 missions have been completed, students enter the 4 secret numbers on the final mission screen. If correct, they will have successfully completed the breakout and will be congratulated.
