A Look into the App World: Recycle HeroPosted
It’s time to get back into our review of various recycling apps for your phones and tablets. For this post we are looking at a game: Recycle Hero. This app is available on the App Store for your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. It is available for $0.99 or you can download a free version, which has ads that come on screen during game play. The app is developed by Blinker Studios and is a fun-filled way to learn more about different ways to recycle and compost.
The mission behind the game is to save the planet by recycling instead of throwing your garbage away. You have opened a recycling facility and are receiving all the paper, plastic, glass, metal and compost that you can get. It all depends on you to succeed in saving the world through recycling or fail and cause turmoil for many future generations.
There are two mode of gameplay for this app: Quick Play and Progress Mode. Quick Play is more of a cut and dry, sort the material as it comes to you. You lose quick play mode when you miss ten items. Progress Mode has more factors involved in the gameplay. At the beginning of this mode, you are in a start-up recycling company and you are moving at a slower pace, not collecting all of the types of recyclables available. As you grow your recycling company, you have more money to purchase different equipment and add-ons that can make your company work more efficiently. Although it may be difficult at first, this mode really teaches which items belong in which category and what can be composted.
Although it is much more of a fun and lighthearted game, this app can teach anyone about recycling and the importance of it to our planet. If you are looking for a game that is also informative, Recycle Hero is definitely an app that should be of interest.
