According to the description of the application on the Google Play Store,’ Coroboi’ is a game for a boy from India (Manipur) who is stranded and wants to return home.
Wearing a Leirum Phee (traditional Manipuri cloth) and a mask, he ran towards his goal.
He will earn points along the way. If the police catch him, the 5,000 point fine will be deducted.
Speaking to Indian media, the talented child Ningthoujam said he wanted to become an ethical hacker in the future.
“I want to become an ethical hacker and learn more about Artificial Intelligence (AI) and other technologies.
My uncle advised me to develop a game about COVID-19.
So I became interested.
The game development was completed last week and launched on Friday (21 August), “he was quoted as saying.
“This is new to me, so I surfed YouTube and read articles for 3-4 weeks to fully understand it,” he added.
Within three days of its release, the game has over 10,000 downloads and various comments from people showing support on the Google Play Store.
A 9th grader from Manipur developed the mobile game “Coroboi” based on the Covid guidelines he found on Twitter.
