New Philippine Mobile Game Can Help Change the World
Filipino app developer AppLabs Digital Studios Inc. has recently launched a new product that will help raise worldwide awareness on the Philippines' endangered species and WWF's advocacies. Together with WWF-Philippines, the company developed a time-pressure puzzle game that has the potential to significantly protect and restore the Philippines’ marine ecosystem.
Dubbed EnviroPop, the puzzle game features characters inspired from some of the endangered species found here in the Philippines, as well as the toxic products threatening marine wildlife. The endangered species include whale sharks and sea turtles.
In the game, players must eliminate sea hazards by tapping and swiping away at least five toxins within a minute. The app educates, entertains, and encourages players to save the Philippines’ precious marine life and biodiversity. Through the application, players can encourage other eco-minded people to download the app as well as share personal high scores via Facebook.
EnviroPop also comes with a mini encyclopedia that features fun facts about the different endangered species in the game. Raising environmental awareness is one step to achieving WWF-Philippines’ goals.
To further help WWF-Philippines with their environment protection efforts, all proceeds from the sale of the app will fund the charitable group’s many environmental advocacies. For $0.99, staunch WWF-Philippines supporters not only get an addictive game filled with useful information about the Philippines’ marine resources. Players also help make a difference to the world at large.
