About this Project:

Our project is based on the needs for humans to recycle. As we see in present day time, trash is being thrown wherever people go. Lots of the people on Earth don’t understand the actual value that they are throwing out. A statistic from hampton.gov says that it costs the United States 11 million dollars annually to clean up the trash. This is a very big problem because that money could be used for other things such as poverty, higher wages, and many more.

One of the biggest reasons why our project is important is because it helps people understand the actual value that the trash holds. Instead of kicking around the trash on the floor, you can actually take that trash and pick it up. You can recycle as much trash as you want and could even get money from that. That’s what our game promotes. Being able to pick up trash and making a profit out of it. You can get things with that money which shows the value that the trash really has in real life.

Littering in general is one of the biggest reasons and causes for the destruction of different environments, populations, and many more. We want to make a way for users and players to understand how important it is to throw out the trash and recycle so that some of the core reasons for global destruction (climate change, decreased biodiversity etc.) is because of the things that they are throwing on the sidewalks and streets.

More About this Project

As you can see, the game starts off by introducing the instructions. The instructions show how to properly play the game by tapping on the trash. Furthermore, it describes how you can use the trash in order to buy things such as walls, roofs, and more for the house. It then goes onto the customization page where you can name your house, set your name, and favorite color. After that, you can play the game. After clicking the trash in 10 seconds, you can use the coins to buy things. Finally, at the end we gave a congrats message and a button to replay the game.
