An ill-defined serious game has been developed so that players enjoy creating concept by reconstructing cluster consisting of several relevant words. This paper explores an introduction of method scoring level of creativity on the developed digital game.

The immediate response means an advantage of digital game that is effective to motivate players to retry the game. The algorism of method scoring level of creativity is designed by focusing on how players reconstruct given clusters. Then the study on the method has been assessed through three aspects, i. e., how the score reflects players recognize meta-cognitive shift on a way of thinking, how the score varies attribute of players, and how the score reflects level of proficiency to learn intended purpose of the game.
