App description

In this app a player fires missiles at comets. The aim is to collect fallen objects from the exploding comets to gain points. Points are used to green the planet. The player must choose between increasing points and using points to upgrade equipment

Reviewers comments

Comets move across the screen and the player must tap the comet to shoot the missile. When the comet explodes, the player collects the fallen objects in order to earn points. The player can then tap on the spaceship and is taken to a different screen where they can choose to spend their points on upgrading their equipment or use the points to green the planet. Greenery is shown as a percentage achieved. The goal of the game, which is to reach 100%, covering the whole planet in green. Different types of fallen objects are worth varying amount of points and a sub-goal of the game is to collect all of the different types of objects.

This game requires strategy and judgement skills as players must decide whether the best way to increase the greenery is to spend points on upgrading equipment or to use the points to green the planet. The speed and number of comets increases gradually and players must use spatial awareness skills to follow the moving objects as well as motor skills to tap on the comets as they move across the screen.

About games and gambling

Most games contain elements of risk, chance and knowledge, that is why they are fun to play. There is growing concern about the impacts of simulated gambling games on the health and wellbeing of children. That's why we are identifying games that contain gambling elements on our site.

The State Government of South Australia's web site http://nogame.com.au/ contains information about these concerns.
