Whack some moles for Alzheimer's

Alzheimer's is the most common form of dementia which is a serious loss of global cognitive ability. It truly is a horrible disease which robs people of their family and friends. So where is the connection with mole whackin' you may ask? Well one indie developer has decided to use his passion for making games to help fight for a cure. Ricky Piller has witnessed Alzheimer's first hand as both his grandmother and uncle passed away from this horrible disease. To help raise money for The Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research Foundation, ( Ricky has made a mole whacking game for kids where a portion of the profits will be donated. 

My Whacky Moles is a fun whack-a-mole type game that invites kids to "whack" moles popping out of the ground at an ever-increasing rate by tapping on the screen. The cartoonish characters, fun sound effects, and easy menu navigation using colors and shapes, makes My Whacky Moles a great kid friendly game. Much like the arrogant pigs in Angry Birds, the obnoxious moles makes you want to "whack" them and put them back into their holes over and over again.
