MISSION

  • IPCC Chairman Rajendra Pachauri is dressed as an undercover “Moses” gondolier at Venice, Italy. Help him save the sinking city by deterring the tsunami.

GAMEPLAY

  • Help Gondolier Pachauri battle tsunami waves to protect Venice until we figure out how to reverse this rising sea level thing.
  • The waves come in from the left and right sides at 3 different depth levels.
  • Maneuver Pachauri to the correct level and attack the incoming waves.
  • If a wave breaks in the center of the screen before Pachauri hits it, the water level gets higher.
  • You can lower the water level by hitting more waves.
  • If the water level gets too high, Venice has flooded and you lose the game.
  • You will get instructions on how to complete your missions. Holding back the sea isn’t going to be easy… good luck!

REQUIREMENTS

  • You need a relatively fast computer to play this game smoothly.
  • Flash Player 9 is required to play this game

    It would be such a shame to see Venice lost to future generations. Go Rajendra, go!
