The coral reef ๐ŸŒŠ has become so polluted that the coral is starting to lose its color, and the clownfish ๐Ÿ  has no sea anemone to live in! Choose your favorite junior scientist ๐Ÿง‘โ€๐Ÿ”ฌ, grab your floaty animal, and set forth into the sea, recycling all trash you find using a very reliable underwater trash bin โ™ป๏ธ. Recycle all the trash in a coral habitat to make the sea anemone grow back, and you will be able to guide the clownfish back to its home ๐Ÿ .

The senior scientists need your help too! That's why you've been equipped with the B.U.D.D.I. (Biometric Underwater Deep Dive Instrument) ๐Ÿ“Ÿ. After the coral is cleaned, the B.U.D.D.I. will gather a report and stay behind to monitor the coral's health ๐Ÿ“Š as you continue in your job, which is to clean the entire coral reef. But watch out for jellyfish! Jellyfish need a clean habitat too, but they don't necessarily know you're here to help, and they have stingers โšก that protect them from anything that gets in their way.

MOVE: โ† / โ†’
JUMP: spacebar, โ†‘, or any key

B.U.D.D.I. was commissioned as part of an after school program for 5th grade students by education researcher Allison Bridges at Columbia University and was partially funded by National Geographic. It uses an in-development open source game engine [SPACE BOX] and can be copied, modified, and distributed freely.

fucked up


can you make it so that wasd works in addition to arrow keys tho?


Yes, gamer

Oh yeah, this is the good stuff


i just played this and i would already say its underrated but the sound effects are very loud and fish should be faster just in general

Now that you mention it, maybe the sfx are kind of loud! I'll fix that, but you'll have to talk to the fish about the speed thing. I think it has a lot of good reasons to be hesitant.

for real dont make the fish faster make them follow farther away. for the rest the graphics look really cool but more weird variety or something to keep interest in experience type games is i feel what they need just in general

It's true, the fish stops without warning if you get too far ahead. I'll see what I can do about that!


oh hey buddi!
