What it does
The Ruff Challenge is an Alexa skill that lets children rescue Ruff the puppy by answering questions on topics such as Math, Social Studies, Science, etc. When the game starts, the user is given the mission to rescue Ruff, who mysteriously keeps getting stuck in a random way each time and needs your help. The user is offered two paths to reach Ruff - two topics selected from a pool of topics. Once the user selects a path, they need to answer 5 questions to progress through all levels and to finally reach Ruff.
Since each new session will have a random mission and a choice of topic, the skill provides some variety every time it’s invoked.
