The app Tractor ROPS Run reinforces some principles of safe tractor operation and the importance of the use of a rollover protective structure (ROPS). The app involves a game, the goal of which is to avoid obstacles that could cause a rollover. The player can drive a tractor over obstacles at slow speeds when the terrain is level, but not when the tractor is traveling on the sloped sides of the road. None of the obstacles may be driven over at high speed, except just after hitting a lightning bolt. The game ends with a rollover unless the has player has obtained a ROPS by hitting a ROPS coin. A player gets a second chance if he or she rolls over with a ROPS, but the ROPS is lost until the player obtains another by hitting a ROPS coin.
