Pump Train pixelates the subway flooding of Hurricane Sandy

Pump Train, a browser-based arcade-style game, charges players with a task taken on by real-life New York MTA workers following Hurricane Sandy: pumping water out of overflowing subway stations.

The game was created by David Albert, Michael Geraci and Nicholas Bergson-Shilcock for weekly newsletter LinkedList NYC. Pump Train doubles as both a management resource game and a donation page for those affected by Hurricane Sandy. Players use the arrow keys to navigate the train to flooding stations, while repeatedly tapping the space bar will drain water.

Pump Train is available to play here; The American Red Cross Disaster Relief is also still taking donations for Hurricane Sandy.
