Duck vs BP iPhone App Has its Heart in the Right Place

There may not be many ducks floating off Mexico's coast, but this iPhone app is certainly relevant to the ongoing BP oil spill disaster/shit-storm. The free app just hit the App Store today, and is educational as well as fun.

From the same developers who created a couple of tic tac toe games, and lolspeak dictionaries, the Duck vs BP app makes use of the accelerometer's tilt-controls, sending the duck around the polluted waters. The aim is to block up all the pipes spilling the oil, and to dodge oil bubbles. Interspersed in all the fun are clever facts about the environment, making it a game suitable for your kiddywinks too.
