EnviroPop iOS Game App, You Play Learn and Help

Recently I got a word from someone from AppLabs Digital Studios about the launching of an iOS game app that will not just entertain players but also be a part of a nature-saving campaign. The app is called EnviroPop currently available for iOS users but they did not forget to mention that an Android version is currently underway so Android users who are and will be interested in this app will have to wait a little on that. 
AppLabs Digital Studios partnered with World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Philippines in launching this entertaining yet informative game app. This game lets users to virtually save endangered sea creatures from  a host of sea hazards such as cyanide, oil, PET bottle, dynamite, and trawl net. For one minute, players will have to tap and swipe at least three of a particular hazard, the more threats they remove from the sea the higher their score will be which can be shared on Facebook and Twitter and challenge friends to beat the scores. As you may have probably noticed, the goal of the game is to save (by eliminating those hazards) six of WWF characters namely Bobby the Butanding, Clara the Clownfish, Doogie the Dugong, Gary the Grouper, Pattie the Pawikan and Dolly the Dolphin. 

A report from BusinessMirror.com.ph said "The app, the first in the WWF global network also arms players with ample knowledge of WWF's priority species, plus the impacts of pollutants and unsustainable fishing practices on marine biodiversity." 

The EnviroPop app can be downloaded from iTunes free of charge for a lite version and there is a full version which is only for $0.99 (around Php40.00). The good thing about buying the full version is that   proceeds will go to WWF-Philippnes marine-conservation programs. See, you play, learn and help at the same time.  

"The Philippines sits at the apex of of the Coral Triangle, the world's epicenter for marine life. With millions of Filipinos depending on the sea for food, livelihood and ecotourism, it's imperative that we prioritize marine conservation." said Honey Carmona, WWF-Philippines Individual Donor Program officer.
