In a plea to save the whales, Greenpeace has posted this cute and delightful Flash game on its website for the world to play. Whale-Flip! puts you in control of two (2) different whales on a cooperative mission to rid the waters of the nasty polluting submarines.
The blue whale can blow a bubble by pressing and holding the mouse button. Release it before it gets too big and pops. Trap submarines in the bubble, but don't let any friendly fish become trapped, or you will lose points and valuable time.
The pink whale can use its spout to push bubbles up to the surface by pressing and holding the mouse button down when positioned beneath a bubble. If you wait too long, the bubble will pop and release its occupant(s) back into the water.
Toggle between the two whales at any time by pressing the space bar.
Bonus points are awarded by capturing and releasing more than one submarine at a time. You will find that additional submarines can be caught by moving a bubble within their path. For each submarine released, an additional five (5) seconds is added to the clock.
Analysis: The graphics and music are very nicely done, and the gameplay is simple and yet challenging to manage two different whales with unique abilities. And while it won't keep you engaged for hours, it is a fun little game with a greater purpose: to raise awareness of the damage we do everyday to our precious natural resources.
On this World AIDS day of awareness and remembrance, let us not forget how valuable each and every one of us is in making a difference to help make the world an even better place to live. Click.
