“Recycle takes bright and inviting colors and combines them with two activities focusing on games that are related to the environment, specifically, the subject of recycling,” said the developers.
The games stimulate hand/eye coordination while encouraging kids to understand the importance of recycling.
The activities in Recycle include “Sort Sport,” where players have to sort items by dragging and dropping them into the appropriate bin. Items may be made out of paper, glass and plastic, and have to be put into their appropriate bins. “Trash Bash” lights up one bin randomly at a time; players must fill the bin as time allows.
