Hi! 

I am a student from israel and i am doing a small research about ways to Make the Coronavirus accessible for children. I love your game, i think it's great, and i would like to know (if it's ok), how many downloads have been so far?


Thank you and gook luck! 

Hello,


Thank you for your kind comment,


Currently the game has received roughly 30.000 plays and 1.000 dowloads.


Good luck for your research !

Hello martin. 

Thank you so much for your quick respond. I'm about to finish my work and I would like to know if i can get an update about the amount of downloads so far. Also, for another aspect of my work, i would be thankful to know - do you feel that there is a decrease in the amount of downloads thanks to the  return to routine, or the opposite? 

Again, thank you.

There should be full screen support, and my suggustion is to remove some obstacles because sometimes there in your way. It can be annoying, because when you bump into them you can get infected easily in the game if your not careful. But otherwise it's a fun amzing addicting game

This game is a great game and is amazing for people to learn how to live with the corona virus going on. It is extremely addictive but is very fun and informative. My high score was 1 billion lives saved which I was very proud of because I can actually be saving that many by avoiding people in real life. I thought it was also very good technology wise as it does not lag or glitch and you can control it very well. All the characters look very cool but maybe it would be better if we get to customise our own characters so we can look like the character we are playing. Another way to improve is to not show us that video every time we restart the game because I find it quite depressing to see and maybe change the coughing people to more realistic coughs. However overall I am very impressed with this game. Thank you so much for making this game for the younger generation to learn and I am sure so many people are more aware and alert once they have played this.

This game is extremely entertaining and i found it very addicting. My highest score was 8,549, not very impressive i know but pleasing enough for me. I thought the concept was very good and it definitely teaches younger children a lesson. I found it quite annoying that you had to watch the clip after every time the game ended and like @lucyluboo said, adding or taking away the tick every time was also very tedious. However, aside from that this was an over all good game and the graphics and controls were all good. I also like how it shows that you can catch it from all places eg: cyclers, sneezing, etc. Something to improve might be that you can customise the characters. But like i said this is an overall amazing game and you have one very satisfied player.

Thank you very much,

anonymous xoxo

this is a really good game and teaches children about the dangers of the virus. i managed to save 100 000 lives and my friend saved 1 billion lives! however, i did find that the message about saving lives after you died each time got very annoying after a few games and i didnt like having to unclick the tutorial version everytime. the game is quite addictive and also extremely fun to play. the graphics are really good and it is a very good idea to include the bicycles and sneezes to show that anyone can spread it.

Darling Lucyluboo,

What a comment!! Very happy you too are spreading much love and positivity!! Really appreciate! <3
