[prMac.com] Oakland, California – In celebration of Earth Day, Tilt World 1.8, the only iOS game to plant real-world trees, ramps up the fight against climate change by going free and offering double points for Earth Day through the end of April. The double points allows players to plant twice as many real world trees. Flip the carbon munching Tadpole calls for players to play green with an Earth Day Double Tadpole Tilt Point Challenge.
Flip’s Earth Day Challenge:
Flip, the carbon munching tadpole and main character of Tilt World, issued a challenge to players to add another 10 Million points to the world score in honor of Earth Day. Once players earn the 10 Million Tilt Points, the game plants a second 10 thousand trees with XEOPlay’s tree planting partner WeForest. Players can track the world score on the Tilt World Map and the carbon and family impact of tree planting on the Tilt World website.

“We need more Tilt Point Seeds,” according to Flip the game’s carbon eating Tadpole after returning from a recent JP Aerospace flight aboard a PongSat. “From space it was easy to see that the rate of deforestation is increasing. The Google Earth images of our planting site from 2002 look nothing like what they do today. We need to send more trees to Madagascar ASAP.”
