Chillingo has launched an iOS game featuring beloved Aardman Animations character, Shaun the Sheep, called “Fleece Lightning”. The game, which was developed by indie studio Green Ant Games, is a fast and furious racing game featuring Shaun, of course, where players get to race the famous sheep against the clock through themed tracks, chock full of obstacles, in a bid to beat the naughty pigs to the finish line. Power-ups featured in the game include speed boosters and picnic blanket power-jumps, which let Shaun run like lightning through the course, dodging trees, traffic cones, and sheep poo! Players can also customize the controls and even design their own tracks with the fully featured level editor.
“We are proud of our continued partnership with Aardman Digital to bring Shaun the Sheep – Fleece Lightning to the App Store,” states Chris Byatte, Co-General Manager and Co-Founder of Chillingo. “The game is phenomenal with its fun, addictive and intuitive controls that races players through mayhem and adventure; Shaun the Sheep fans will definitely not be disappointed,” adds Joe Wee, Co-General Manager and Co-Founder of Chillingo.So if you fancy a bout of “happy giggling”, and frankly, who doesn’t, click this link to download the game for $0.99: App Store - Shaun the Sheep - Fleece LightningDan Efergan, Creative Director at Aardman Digital says “How can you not love a frantic dash through the English countryside... albeit with messy mud, out of control tractors, and pigs fighting you for the farmyard's short supply of apples. Here at Aardman there's been a nice mix of happy giggling and frustrated shouting when playing, so we're excited to see this game finally released into the world. We're particularly chuffed with the level editor, and can't wait to see what fiendish tracks our fans are going to invent.”
