Mobigame, the makers of Edge, Truckers Delight, and Perfect Cell, have just released a game called Bulletproof to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Amnesty International. All proceeds from sales of the game, which costs $0.99 on the App Store, will be donated to Amnesty International to help end human rights abuses. You can download the game here.
As a game, there’s not much to Bulletproof. It begins where the trailer below leaves off: with you in a concrete room, standing in front of a firing squad. When the men shoot at you, yellow crosshairs zero in on where the bullets will hit the screen. You have to tap the crosshairs before the bullets strike. It’s basically whack-a-mole, but far more grim.
The game has 10 stages that progress with increasing difficulty. Take it from us, you need fast reflexes to get through the final stages. The graphics are crisp and look great on Retina display devices. It’s a universal app, so you can play it on an iPad too.
Since the gameplay is so unabashedly simple, the real reason to buy Bulletproof is to support Amnesty International, an organization that works to end human rights abuses. And if you want further information about the organization, you can sign up for their mailing list from within the app.
Bulletproof is a game that might make you think about serious world issues you’d otherwise ignore, and the buck it costs goes toward a good cause. If it’s a cause you want to support, the game is definitely worth a download.
