Top 3 Online Game Apps that Promote Ecological Awareness

In our stressful lives, we often seek some mindless distractions. Smartphones present us with a perfect opportunity to do just that – with all the simple mini-game apps. But many game developers seek not only to entertain the player but to raise awareness on important issues, such as environment

Lives of people all over the world become increasingly stressful these days. We often look for some small distractions to get our minds off of our problems, if only for a few minutes. Luckily, about 6 billion of us own smartphones and have the opportunity to install and play all the mini-games to any taste. Moreover, mindless entertainment is not the focus of attention for many game developers. While entertaining their player, they also like to bring awareness to certain issues that they deem important. For instance, eco-awareness inspires a lot of games that are both relaxing and conscious:

#1 WINDFALL

This game was originally launched as an in-browser game back in 2007. Since then, it was made available for both Android and iOS. The player has to build and operate a windmill, and the process is emulated pretty accurately. It is a calm and relaxing entertainment that also educates us about renewable energy.

#2 GARBAGE DREAMS

This game with an odd name takes you back to Ancient Egypt, where the Zabbaleen community – according to Wikipedia – focused their activities on collecting and recycling garbage. And they were good at it – up to 80% of the garbage found new life. In Garbage Dreams, you can manage their activities and learn about recycling.

#3 NAT GEO WILD SLOTS

While the previous examples look somewhat like an entertaining school assignment, this one is quite adult. At its core is gambling. However, the developers managed to marry it with environmental awareness. This is a product of the collective effort of Max Polyakov’s Murka and the National Geographic Association. While playing slots, you get to look at the wonderful natural scenery from all over the world and know that the money you spent on in-game purchase will go to National Geographic Association's environmental causes.
