Press release from Aardman Digital:
Aardman Digital announced that it has partnered with Nokia to develop the first Shaun the Sheep mobile game for users of Windows phones.
Barnstormer is a fast and furious run and jump game featuring the much-loved Aardman character Shaun the Sheep. Players race Shaun across farmyard themed tracks, littered with obstacles, against the clock. The game features a variety of jumps, boosts and power-jumps to increase speed, dodge mud, clear high stacks of hay bales, and land on trampolines.
Lorna Probert, Head of Aardman Digital comments, “This alliance with Nokia to produce Shaun the Sheep’s first mobile game on the Windows marketplace is an obvious next step for the brand given its successful track record in the digital world. Barnstormer will be a great way for fans to interact with the brand on-the-go and we’re confident it will be a hit with consumers of all ages.”
Keith Varty, Head of Content and Developer Marketing, Nokia Western Europe said “Barnstormer by Aardman is a great example of the household favourites, such as Shaun the Sheep, joining the World’s fastest growing app store. It reinforces Nokia’s commitment to bringing amazing new content to the Marketplace, and is sure to be fun for Nokia Lumia owners of all ages.”
