Verdict

Bamboo Luminaries by Bamboo Learning, Inc is an interactive educational skill packed with engaging facts and quizzes. It’s a skill curated to help children know more about leading personalities who belonged to different eras and famed for their novel ideas and renowned actions. This free, education-oriented game showcases significant figures, ranging from widely celebrated to the lesser-known chosen from diverse fields such as architecture, art, film, geography, history, literature, music, science, social justice, and sports. Bamboo Luminaries is a trivia game and an educational activity suitable for all age groups.

Though it is a skill that elicits interest in the young and the adult alike, the makers of this voice app have designed it to benefit high school age players. The motto behind the making of this voice app is to help junior students with school projects, and furthermore to instill in them a yearning for learning about historical legends. Another highlight was the gamification mechanism they introduced for guessing the luminaries correctly. There is a higher likelihood of the username appearing on the leaderboard if the user is able to play well and make smart guesses. Yet, at the same time to accrue 50K points, continuous gameplay is required. On the whole, it is an informative skill, and the use of a voice-over artist seemed like a good choice. At times the streaming of the bios readout sounded a bit monotonous. 

However, being educative in nature, the VOGO Voice team is inspired to score the Bamboo Luminaries skill with a 4.75 out of 5 stars based on our review criteria.
