Northern Ireland’s favourite pizzeria, Little Wing has launched an exciting new mobile game.
The popular home grown pizzeria group partnered with University of Ulster design students, tasking them with creating the design concept for their first ever mobile game, ‘Wingin’ It’, which is now available to download free from the Apple App Store and Google Play.
University of Ulster BDes (Hons) Interaction Design students, Inga Hampton and Andy Whann jumped at the chance to get involved in the exciting project and stepped up to the plate with innovative concepts for the game.
The students’ ideas were then brought to life by local developer, Chris Coleman.
‘Wingin’ It’ challenges players to make pizzas from the Little Wing menu; gamers must catch toppings on a winged pizza base as they fall from the sky whilst avoiding hitting any pesky clouds.
Players from as young as four years old will find themselves quickly immersed in the addictive game, becoming more and more determined to beat their high scores. And with the ‘Winging It’ high scores to be displayed on leader boards in each of Little Wing’s six restaurants, the pressure is on for pizza lovers to hone their skills.
Commenting on her involvement with the concept of the Little Wing game, Inga Hampton said:
“Getting the opportunity to be involved with the concept and design of a brand new game for Little Wing was very exciting. We are thrilled to have been given this opportunity and to see our ideas become a reality.”
The game is the next stage in a series of ongoing investments in Little Wing’s digital offering, following the launch of its new website littlewingpizzeria.com earlier this year.
Players can download the game on both the Apple App Store and Google Play, so whether you are in one of the six Little Wing restaurants, or the comfort of your own home, you can grab a ‘pizza the action’.
