The aim of this project is to develop and test effectiveness of the game-based learning for children about road safety. Development methods that had been used in this project is the agile development methodology. This game will combine with situated learning technic, means that the children pedestrian are challenged to use critical thinking, problem solving and kinaesthetic abilities based on the situation in the road environment. By presenting the road safety game, understanding among children age 10 years old awareness increases. The result will provide a new means for road safety education of children in Malaysia. From the result, it shown that percentage of users’ knowledge increases after playing the game based on the pre-test and post-test.
