Sheep Stack is the official new mobile game from Shaun the Sheep, where flying by the seat of your pants has never been so much fun!

Friday 26th september- Aardman Animations have today launched a new official Shaun the Sheep game which is available on iOS and Android.

screenshot5-480x800With a pair of pants on a washing line Shaun and the flock are in their element as they take it in turns to launch themselves into a wobbling stack of balancing sheep in a bid to reach the unguarded plate of doughnuts! Players must create their stack of sheep overcoming the numerous challenges of platforms, precarious platforms, swinging see-saws, tumbling tyres and whizzing water-wheels to ensure their woolly wonder does not come crashing to the ground!

Players can explore 60 levels across two fun-filled environmentswith achievementsbeingearned for the number of sheep used combined with the speed of completing a level.

To celebrate the launch, Aardman plan to engage the online Shaun the Sheep community to design their own levels for the game and submit their ideas – with the best ideas being made into actual levels for future releases. One lucky winner will be invited to come to Aardman and help the game developers bring the level to life! The competition ties in with the studio’s ongoing commitment to provide inspiration and learning resources to encourage young people to become digital creators rather than just consumers.

Dan Efergan, Digital Group Creative Director at Aardman says “Making games is something we’re hugely passionate about, and a creative craft we believe in alongside storytelling and animation. Obviously we hope people will play the game, but even more so we hope they’ll take part in the competition, as any opportunity to inspire young minds to ‘have a go’ is key to unlocking their own passions.”

 

Shaun the Sheep –Sheep Stack is available now from the Amazon App Store , iTunes and Google Play! for just£1.99
