Developed by Ranida Games, a Filipino mobile gaming applications development company, in partnership with PNP Police Community Relations Group (PCRG), the app can be downloaded at this Google Play link.

The app is a fast-paced and endless runner game that features “Tsip Bato,” depicting PNP director-general Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa, which the gamer controls to “clean up the streets from criminals” by shooting, running down, and apprehending them.

“Tsip Bato” is also controlled to patrol the roads and fight crime. Gamers should aim to apprehend as many bad guys as they can while avoiding obstacles. Users can also choose “El Presidente Du30” in the mobile app to play the game.

The PNP PCRG is also the team in-charge of PO1 Bato mascot and Tatay Digong, Chief Bato, PO1 Makisig and Da Adiks Puppets.
