Reporter Rush Newsround Game
WE WERE ASKED TO…
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.
SO WE MADE…
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.
