Did you know that more than 20,000 dolphins are slaughtered in Japan each year by ruthless poachers? You help raise awareness about this fact and you can help put a stop to this by playing the endless runner game Dolphin Chase.

The game presents you with Dusty the dolphin and tasks you with keeping the poor dolphin alive. You see, Dusty somehow wondered into Taiji waters and unless you help him, he will die at the hands of some greedy poachers. It is up to you to guide Dusty and keep him alive for as long as possible.

When you tap on your iDevice’s screen, Dusty will dive. When you take your finger off the screen, Dusty swims upward. When Dusty eats fish, his speed increases – keep eating fish to keep Dusty ahead of the greedy poachers because if he gets caught, the poachers will kill him. Make sure to avoid the underwater obstacles as well. What sort of obstacles are there in the water? Why garbage, planks of wood, eels that deliver a nasty electric shock, and squid that make it impossible to see where you’re going.

There are power-ups as well. There’s one for example that makes Dusty invisible to other sea creatures and another that gives him a speed boost. Try to use these power-ups to keep Dusty safe for as long as possible.

By playing Dolphin Chase you help a virtual dolphin stay alive and you help real-life dolphins as well. You lend a helping hand in two ways:
  • 50% of the money you spend on the game is donated to Save Japan Dolphins, a non-profit organization that aims to put a stop to the Japanese drive fishery slaughter of dolphins and stop the capture and live trade of dolphins to zoos and aquariums around the world.
  • You help raise awareness by signing a petition or by posting on social networking sites.

You can get the Dolphin Chase game from the App Store here for the low amount of 99 cents.
