Game to Thwart Cancer with Triton

Anyone who ever had a friend or loved one battle cancer will surely attest to the fact that the disease is no laughing matter. But while cancer itself is obviously not fun, it can make for an interesting and altruistic game aimed at raising awareness and funding for cancer research and prevention.

XDA Forum Member Triton1986 recently created the game Triton – Stop Cancer, where the player’s goal is to… stop cancer. The game presents you with cancer cells, which multiply over time, and your goal is to eradicate them (or hold out as long as possible). Cancer cells can be killed by tapping on them—if only it were that easy in real life—and sometimes they die spontaneously.

The game itself is free, but comes with unobtrusive ads. But best of all, all of the profit earned by the in-game advertising goes towards Cancer research.

Head over to the game thread to give Triton a shot! While you’re at it, sign up for your local Relay For Life or donate to the American Cancer Society or any related charity.
