In each game you get three tries to answer a question and the reponse time is taken into account. You can also adjust the game time to make sessions longer or shorter. Aside from the standard mode, you can also play takeover (correct other players' wrong answers) or free for all where players buzz in to answer the question.

The game features a glossary with all the featured animals. If you get every question right, you win a medal, and if you win medals in every game you receive a trophy. [source:mobygames]
