It is estimated that at the beginning of the 21st century, almost a billion people do not know how to read and write. Note that this figure of 1 billion = one thousand million people, of which more than 100 million consists of children of school-going age!
CyberDodo and the Elephants (1-22)
Elephants are the largest animals on earth. One would think that their impressive size could protect them from predators, and this was indeed true for a very, very long time, until man came onto the scene! Remember that scientists estimate that their population decreased 10 times within 1 century and we should therefore be involved in their protection.
Your mission is to protect elephants from hunters who would like to kill them! You will need to use all your powers of concentration, because there are numerous assailants and they are determined to stop you from fulfilling your mission.
In order to increase your chances as much as possible, don't forget to read the instructions below properly, because there are many ways for you to win this game, which will at the same time make you aware of the tragic fate of hundreds and hundreds of thousands of pachyderms.
Take note, your score will not be registered if your computer is disconnected from the Internet – even if it is for a few seconds - or your service provider changes your IP address during the session.
How can you carry out your mission?
You have 5 lives (At the top left hand side of the screen, you will be able to see how many lives you have left.)
You can make your elephant move in several ways:
To move horizontally, press the ‘left’ and ‘right’ arrows
To jump, press the ‘up’ arrow
To squat, press the ‘down’ arrow
To spray water onto the hunters, press the space bar
To stun them with its trunk, press ‘x’
To make them jump up, press ‘z’
If the (yellow) energy bar is full and you press the ‘Shift’ key, your elephant will start running.
There is water and food available to restore your energy. Take note, at the extreme left and right hand side of the screen, you will hear an alarm going off, because these zones make you lose a lot of energy, which means that you should avoid them.
The longer you keep your elephants alive, the higher your score will be.
Good luck and be careful, the fate of the largest animal on earth is in your hands!
