Camelina Caper is the latest addition to Auroch Digital's GameTheNews.net initiative, and sees you taking control of a fish called Gerald.

Built as part of the BBSRC Great British Bioscience Festival, in conjunction with Rothamsted Research, the game is all about eating algae in order to produce omega-3 fish oils.

Snaffle the lumps of sea-plant in the right order and you score some points and keep the timer running, get them in the wrong order, or take a sting from a dastardly jellyfish, and the pattern resets and time ticks away.

Grab one of the Camelina flowers, real-life genetically modified plants created by Rothamsted that provide a sustainable source of omega-3, and you'll instantly complete a chain.

You can grab Camelina Caper from the App Store [download] and the Google Play Store [download] for nothing, and it's fast and frantic enough to be worth a few minutes of your time.
