About this Project:

The game “Trash Run'' addresses the ongoing pollution crisis in our city, and around the world. It evolved to involve a sci-fi aspect of adding monsters, and superheroes to save the day. Our project works by just using simple keys of “d”, “r”, “u”, and “l” to move and “b” to block. You‘re supposed to block the slime blocks to make them disappear and win.

Hi team. A game is a fun way to educate people about the serious problem of pollution. I was very impressed by the way you tackled the issue, your thoughtful design process and the presentation of your project. I liked how you used the various design tools to complete the project. And I'm impressed by how your text and visuals complemented each other and helped to tell a compelling story--this is an important skill for any job in the design/UX field. Very well done!

👏 Principal Product Manager at Self-Employed — Emoti-Con Judge
I love your app idea! The game play is sticky and engaging-- I can really see an audience gravitating to playing this game again and again!
The potential for educating others about pollution through a game is evident. To further enhance its value, I recommend considering the addition of educational elements such as facts or links to resources.
