How to Play the FloodSafe Game
Select the magnifying glass and drag around the screen to identify hazards underneath the floodwater.
Track each item until the green band has circled the magnifying glass and added the item to your found list at the top of the screen.
There are 10 unique hazards to locate, but you may find more than one of each item.
You have 60 seconds to discover as many items as possible.
