Run the River: a water sharing challenge

Run the River – a water sharing challenge is a free, interactive game designed for Apple and Android devices. The app has been developed with historic and modelled data from the Murray–Darling Basin.
Run the River combines elements of the natural water cycle with the challenges of balancing water use between various water consumers including the river mouth, wetlands, farms, towns and cities.
Players must control water releases from the dam and balance water use between wetlands, farms and communities along the river.
Watch out! Difficulty increases with each level as players manage new challenges including flood, drought, salinity, groundwater and increased water demand.
