This paper proposes a first sketch on the state of the art regarding interactive edutainment games delivered through mobile multimedia museum guidance systems used in the context of a cultural visit. The goal is to identify current practices but also potential functional requirements, through the introduction of a first set of classification criteria emerging from a literature review of representative projects. The issue of related evaluation practices is also discussed.
