Musical mobile game raises funds to save sight

March 2021

A mobile games publisher has pledged to help prevent avoidable blindness by donating proceeds from its new game to Sightsavers.

Fledgling publisher HAVE’s latest offering is a free game called Piano Music Tiles Brain Trainer, featuring Robbie the Robot, who used to love playing the piano until he broke his visual processing unit. He is worried that his dream of becoming a famous pianist is over, so players are invited to play along with him to help him regain his confidence to play on stage again.

Players must tap on the piano tiles to play along with a song. The screen then gets progressively darker and they must rely on their memory to keep playing.

Half the advertising revenue from the game will be donated to Sightsavers.

HAVE, founded in June 2020, pledges to share its proceeds with partnered charities. Its aim is “to become an industry innovator with an inbuilt social conscience, ready to take on both the mobile gaming and charity sectors at once”.

Players must help Robbie the Robot learn to play the piano from memory.
