Reporter Rush Newsround Game

Client CBBC


Create two Flash games for the CBBC website to support the iconic Newsround series and encourage children to engage with live news in a fun and interesting way.


Two engaging, playable games to spark interest in the Newsround brand and highlight the goings-on in front of and behind the camera during news production. Both games cross-promoted each other and by utilising dynamic news feeds promoted traffic to current news stories hosted on the Newsround website.

This game was Reporter Rush, a time-management game, challenges players to quickly balance and manage their actions in order to get the most out of one week’s worth of ‘reporting’. The game involves responding to a constant barrage of reporting jobs across the globe, flying to various places around the globe and managing their crew, all before a particular live event finishes.
