This pandemic has also allowed students to be creative on many occasions. One of them is by making a pandemic-themed educational game. Fight the Virus is an educational game created by five students of Informatics Engineering, University of Muhammadiyah Malang (UMM), featuring the role of Tapak Suci fighters as representatives of Muhammadiyah.
"We made this game because we were going to take part in a competition. Then, because the theme of this event was pandemic and had to include Muhammadiyah elements, we chose Tapak Suci, "explained Rosi Andreyna.
Together with Lutfi Ramadhani, Indah Ardhia Cahyani, Event Rifqi Pratiwi and Ilham Ardiansyah, Rosi joined in a group called "Berfaedah". The characters in this game must be pass through the maze and obstacles in the form of the Corona Virus. The game points will continue to increase if the characters in this game find masks and hand sanitizers in the maze. Like other games, this game also has a level system where the more you level up, the harder it is to beat your opponent.
"In essence, you have to fight the Corona Virus, and the Tapak Suci warriors must fight the virus by being equipped with masks and hand sanitizers obtained from the labyrinth," continued Rosi.
As told by Rosi, she and her four friends did not experience any significant obstacles during the process of making this game. Until the competition process, Fight the Virus made it into the top five at the Informatics Study Program Association (APSI) Competition held by the University of Muhammadiyah Makassar last February.
