Play and do your part to help the hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico!
On September 20, 2017 hurricane Maria made landfall on the island of Puerto Rico. Today you can do your part to help the island recuperate from this major storm by playing Relief Road: Puerto Rico. All proceeds generated from ad watching and donations go to Foundation for Puerto Rico and ConPRmetidos, who are all working to help the island’s residents.
Relief Road: Puerto Rico is a fun matching puzzle game that tells the story of an island in the process of rebuilding. Let others know about Relief Road: Puerto Rico by sharing it on Facebook. Together we will rebuild Puerto Rico!
All proceeds from ads and donations will go to hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico. The more you play, the more you help those affected by the storm.
Gameplay is that of a tile-matching puzzle game; combining items on the screen in groups of 3 or more. We developed the items based on articles which help people out in these situations, such as water, clothing and batteries. By matching them and completing the score required, players can then advance to more challenging stages with different winning conditions.
Funds towards the relief effort are raised through two main avenues: In-game Ads and Coin Purchasing. Players can utilize the Coins to add boosts to gameplay or attempt more stages if their "energy" runs out. Video Ads are presented as interstitial Ads, which transition player from gameplay to the stage selection map. The revenue gathered from both these avenues go directly to the relief effort. As a mechanism to boost interest within the game, we introduced Facebook integration for sharing the app, as well as a Leaderboard in which players can see where they stand in both donations and Ad viewing.
Every dollar raise by In-game Ads and coin purchasing will be donated to the following efforts:
