28th January 2021
We HAVE been busy for quite a few weeks now with our new game, Robbie’s Piano Music Tiles Brain Trainer, and got caught up with preparation for our PR and Media campaigns, charity partnerships and more. 👨💻
And because of that, we neglected our blog, until today. 🙌
We have a short and entertaining post today looking at our top 5 socially good mobile games and apps that are a mix of fun apps and good causes we can all get involved with.
Let’s dive in. ⤵️
1. Robbie’s Piano Music Tiles Brain Trainer 🤖
Of course, we are going to brag, but for good reasons 😬
Launched in January 2021.
Robbie used to be the best Robot pianist in the world, that was until he was overloaded with electricity, which broke his visual processing unit and now he needs all of us to help him remember how to play the piano again without any sight.
Our free-to-play Piano Tiles-style game challenges how good you are without your sight!
We are committed to donating 50% of the revenue we generate from this game to Sightsavers, who work in developing countries to treat and prevent avoidable blindness and promote equality for people with visual impairments and other disabilities.
Help Robbie and Sightsavers now ⤵️
Let us know what you think by giving rating and review in the app stores ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
2. ShareTheMeal 🇺🇳
This is not a mobile game but definitely makes it on our list. 🤲
Launched in 2015 by the World Food Programme, this app aims to help the undernourished people in the world today, approximately 750 million according to them. Hunger is the world’s greatest solvable problem and only through the involvement of each and only one of us can be solved.
We wrote more about why we all should get involved in social causes here.
No wonder that the numbers of people getting involved through this app!
As of today, more than 4 million people are fighting hunger with ShareTheMeal and over 94 million meals have been shared in different countries through the United Nations World Food Programme.
Let’s fight hunger together ⤵️
3. Lords Mobile: Kingdom Wars ⚔️
The developers lent support through their Lords Mobile game to raise awareness for the charity in both 2018 and 2019.
In 2018 alone, they managed to raise $20,000 to bring relief to children in areas of conflict.
In 2020, the mobile game developer got more involved in fighting the COVID battle and established a $500,000 fund for the procurement of medical supplies.
This is definitely another example of a company who is not just about making profits but cares about the world too.

4. Beat Cancer 🦠
Your bloodstream is under constant siege: vicious cells are constantly attacking the walls.
Beat the life out of the cancer cells with the help of your awesome fighting agents ranging from natural killer cells, antibodies or cytotoxic T cells. A whole arsenal at your disposal to fight the enemy.
The more cells you destroy using your arsenal the more diamonds you receive in exchange, which you can later use in the game to upgrade your supply of walls, bombs and cannons.
A funny and engaging game, with pretty awesome graphics but more importantly, 20% of the revenue is donated to cancer research at the Danish Cancer Society.
Developed by Polyspice Games. 💪

5. Charity Miles
We picked this app specifically because everyone is crazy about staying active nowadays, no matter what it is that gets them off the sofa. 🏃♀️
Either running, gym, just biking or whatever floats your boat, we all realised the importance of staying active in our day to day life. The reasons are countless, and just because we are game developers, not doctors, does not mean we can’t recommend something to help.
So, how does Charity Miles work? 🧐
It’s a good question! Here is the answer ⤵️
Simply download and install the app, sign up for a Charity Miles account. Before each workout, you open the app and pick the charity you want to help (from a total of 37), then pick the type of activity you are going to do: outdoor walking/running, indoor walking/running, or outdoor cycling.
When you are done, just head back to the app and hit the stop button. That’s it. The corporate sponsor for the specific charity will donate $0.10 per mile biked or $0.25 per mile walked or ran.
Now, chop chop, download the app and go for a run today ⤵️
As promised, a short and sweet post.
