Beating cancer through a space game never seemed possible. Until now.

Every day, scientists across the globe are painstakingly analysing the genetic faults in thousands of cancer samples. They are looking for clues that will help develop new cancer treatments. This game let’s you help.

Play to Cure™: Genes in Space is a pioneering way of helping these scientists in their mission to beat cancer sooner and all via this world first mobile game.

Instead of one lone scientist analysing a cancer data set by eye for hours, a group of gamers can get through that data simply by playing this space themed game and collecting a valuable and tradable substance dubbed, Element Alpha.

Having more eyes on the data means we could generate more accurate results. And crucially it means moving us closer to the day when all cancers are cured.

***This game can be used offline but will upload and download level data using your 3G or wireless connection when available. Each level we download is about 250kb – the size of a low res image***

THE STORY

A mysterious substance is discovered in the voids of deep space. Dubbed Element Alpha, the substance is refined for use in medicine, engineering and construction and soon the Element Alpha industry explodes galaxy wide.

As an employee of Bifrost Industries, one of the biggest traders of the substance, your job is to collect as much Element Alpha as you can and trade it for upgrades to your spacecraft to help you manoeuvre the asteroid filled space course.

Game features:

•Arcade/action space gameplay
•Rise through the ranks at Bifrost Industries from Recruit to Galactic Legend
•Upgrade and customise your ship with unique items, weapons and colours
•Plan your route to maximise your Element Alpha haul
•Maximise your profits by trading your Element Alpha when the market is high or sell immediately for a guaranteed return

HOW THIS HELPS TO BEAT CANCER SOONER

Element Alpha represents genetic cancer data that scientists across the world analyse on a daily basis. Genes in Space has successfully translated this data into an interactive, asteroid-strewn intergalactic assault course.

By collecting Element Alpha and navigating your spaceship through the cosmos you’re finding the significant genetic changes which help scientists to discover cancer causing genes and develop new life saving treatments.

So gamers take note. The Genes in Space story may not be real, but the impact of what you’re doing is far from science-fiction.

Play to Cure™. Beat cancer sooner.

Fairly decent little game, especially considering it's being used to parse data. I wish you could replay a level, to fine-tune your understanding of how to plot the best route to optimize collection of element alpha. Also, some kind of indication of the effects of the different upgrades would be appreciated (do intake and fin upgrades do anything? What does upgrading your engine actually do?).
