Aardman and NatWest Bank Launch New App, Pigby’s Fair

Aardman Animations was recently commissioned by the UK’s NatWest Bank in order to design a new app called Pigby’s Fair, which aims to encourage children to save. The app is available now for both Android and iOS devices via Google Play and the App Store.

Pigby’s Fair is free to play, and will feature NatWest’s new animated savings characters, Pigby and friends, all of whom will help teach children all they need to know about saving money. The lessons will be imparted via a fun and exciting game that puts the kids in the shoes of a boy or girl pig character running a stall in an animated fairground. Pigby’s friends hold other stalls so players can check how much his friends have saved and what they’re saving for to inspire and spur them along.

Good news for Dragon Ball fans who own a tablet device – Namco Bandai has recently posted a preview video revealing a brand new Dragon Ball game for your precious devices.

Android and iOS Gets One Piece Endless Runner Game

one-piece-running-chopper

Endless Runner games are a dime-a-dozen on tablets, and they’re basically working under the same principles when it comes to gameplay – your character runs automatically on a seemingly endless path, and your job is to either steer or make them jump in order to avoid obstacles and collect items/power-ups.

The main pull of the games, and the reason why they’re still extremely popular to this day, is that they can be applied to just about any IP – from Pixar’s Brave to the Minions, to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and even original ones. Now, it’s One Piece’s turn as Tony Tony Chopper gets his own version called One Piece Running Chopper: Chopper and the Island of Bonds.
