Play 2020 or Bust, the Game of the Century – End the Climate Crisis

This is your chance to be a hero! Climate change is the biggest challenge we’ve ever faced, and currently, we’re NOT on track for ending the crisis before it’s too late. But together, human beings CAN close the gap between where we are headed and where we need to be to end the crisis in time. And we CAN have fun doing it!

By playing 2020 or Bust The Game of the Century, you will help reduce global emissions, the key to winning the game.

Great app!

Finally an app to end climate change! Get on board!

I like the concept, and I can see some fixes:

1. How does one get back to the game if you're on one of the bottom icons? So not obvious (home button perhaps)

2. "choose your avatar" is confusing. I thought it was something to add on your profile, but it isn't. What's the purpose?

3. Actions- do they change daily? I thought it would be actions for each day you log in. Instead when you select one, the wording is such as if you've done it. I would suggest it as a "goal" for ea day. Select it, then come back that day to admit/track if you actually did it!
