Reflection
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. The way I present this play is to create different techniques like symbolism and representation to draw forth Shakespeare’s intended effect.
The use of symbolism of the different character icon on the game board shows the different roles of each character that are involve within the act.

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.
Furthermore, contrast has been placed in my visual learning game by the different characteristic of Banquo and Macbeth (according to different icon). 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...
