Deadly Defenders

Client CBBC

WE WERE ASKED TO…

Create an HTML5 tower defence game, a genre so far lacking from the CBBC stable, based around the Deadly 60 brand.  We were also required to create a narrative that framed the game in a way which wasn’t harmful to animals; no mean feat when most traditional tower defence games involve copious amounts of weaponry.

SO WE MADE…

A game where Steve and his film crew are on the Indonesian island of Java in search of one of the rarest large mammals on the entire planet…the majestic and elusive Javan rhinoceros. The player needs to ensure Steve a good night’s sleep by strategically placing Deadly animals which jump into action as soon as their favourite prey gets close, scaring off potential threats to Steve and his tent. Of note are the lush graphics and tough but thoroughly addictive level design.

AS A RESULT…

The game has had an incredibly high replay rate as players try to crack the tough strategy for each level.  It was the number one game on the CBBC games site for a month after its initial release.
