Gather garbage and get paid. Our parks are full of garbage and we need your help! People throw all sorts of waste around and your job is to gather and sort all the trash. We recycle the waste and sort all of the trash to different bins.

"Your performance wasn't good enough.
Improve and come back stronger."

1st round ended in the time it took me to test 4 keys for movement.
I'd suggest that you make the game "a bit longer".

A couple things you could do are:
slow the animation down a bit, at least on early levels while players get used to the game.
Make the play area larger, maybe have it scroll around while staying centered on the player.

The landing page says:
"Every year, 8 million tons of garbage is added to our oceans"
How does this game solve that?
I came here expecting the game to be picking up garbage off the ground, and putting it into containers. (Trash barrels, recycling bins, etc.)
But from there, where does it go? Into the oceans?
Does that mean as you "help the environment" around you by picking up trash, you're hurting the oceans?

"We generate 21.5 million tons of food waste each year.
If we composted that food, it would reduce the same amount of greenhouse gas as taking 2 million cars off the road."
So much wrong with this propaganda that it is hard to know where to start:
If you compost food and other organic material: it decays.
If you leave it to rot: it decays.
You've violated the laws of physics by changing the net effect.
The entire "greenhouse gasses" argument comes from a movie made for propaganda purposes, and proven in court to be propaganda.
I could add a lot more to this, but I'll keep it short.

Thank you for playing! I added those facts to the end screen to give players more context and info about waste to help them make better choices in real life so they would avoid throwing trash around and learned more about the benefits of recycling. :)

If you want to learn more about waste and how it affects climate change here are the sources of the facts included in the game:
