CITY: (Video game on Metro Bus developed to promote civic responsibility)


ISLAMABAD: In the context of recently-launched Metro Mass Transit System for the people of twin cities of Islamabad and Rawalpindi, a video game titled “XtremeMetro” has been developed by the KWICK High Tech & Solutions to promote the civic responsibility among the general public.

“Whenever any topsy-turvy situation crops up in the country, people tend to show acrimony by damaging the public assets, without realizing that it is their property, made for their ease and comfort,” said the team lead for KWICK Android game development, adding that a sense of ownership and responsibility must be prevailed in our society for heading towards a prosperous and developed Pakistan.

According to a Thursday’s press release, main character of the game, “Bhola Ustaad”, is a chronic Pakistani mischievous guy, who savagely breaks the glasses and windows of metro buses and stations. On the other hand, the coup “Hawaldar” runs to catch and buckle him up.

The players need to collect tokens for increasing scores, jump over the obstacles, and prevent collision with hurdles or metro buses. The game, which is available on Google Play Store, has several kinds of pickups and boosters infixed which help players in getting through the game more smoothly, without a hitch.

The video game graphics include beautiful and aesthetic green landscape of Islamabad, with eminent and archaic buildings like Faisal Masjid, ISE Tower, Centaurus Mall, Serena Hotel and many other eye-grabbing views. This game is unique in its concept with peculiar, exotic and fascinating game phases and laps.
