Macbeth is a play filled with betrayal, prophecies, revenge and many other themes. After the creation of visual learning game. I feel that Macbeth is indeed tragic because of his one fatal flaw. As one could see, throughout this play, Macbeth seeks guidance from the wrong people like the witches, his wife, whose ambition is as great, if not greater than his.

Moreover, blood stain that around Macbeth and Lady Macbeth depicts death, betrayal using metaphor. And this is shown by the murder of King Duncan in Act 2 Scene 2 and hire killer to kill Banquo in Act 3 Scene 3. Not only the death of King Duncan and Banquo, the blood stain also represent death of Macbeth that he is killed by Macduff and Lady Macbeth has committed suicide. However, death can also be shown by the representation of crown. In the game board, Both Macbeth and Lady Macbeth have crowned head but their fate cannot be wonderful because they both dead after crowned. Macbeth is killed by Macduff and Lady Macbeth has committed suicide.

Banquo can be described as noble, honourable, suspicious, inactive, and (at the end of Act III) dead. In Act 1, Scene 4, King Duncan praises Banquo's nobility by saying "Noble Banquo / That has no less deserved, nor...
