Aardman Digital has just released a new online game based on Cartoon Network’s award-winning live action/2D animated comedy series The Amazing World of Gumball. Titled “Dino Donkey Dash.” the game is based on the episode of the series called “The Quest” and will consist of various fast-paced minigames, all of which are designed to provide a fun and engaging online experience for kids. The game will be launched on Cartoon Network websites all across Europe, Middle East, and Africa.
Louise Okafor, director of digital entertainment, EMEA at Turner Broadcasting said “It’s a fantastic game which wonderfully encapsulates the creative emphasis of the series, but also works as a unique standalone proposition, which is really what you want when creating an online product affiliated to a series. Aardman are great partners to work with and we’re looking forward to seeing the game debut globally on Cartoon Network.”
The game puts players in control of Darwin and Gumball as they try to get their little sister Anais’ toy donkey Daisy back, after it’s been snatched by Tina the T-Rex. The various minigames all require the player to take the toy back through various means: from stealth, as they try to creep up on the sleeping dinosaur, to a sidescrolling, temple-run like dash to safety as the player tries to outrun Tina to the safety of the junkyard perimeter.
