UK-based independent producer Novel Entertainment has joined forces with P2 Entertainment to launch a new Horrid Henry gaming app, Horrid Henry’s Big Box of Pranks.
Developed by Novel and P2, the new app will be available on mobile and tablet devices via iOS and Android this July.
Based on the TV series, the mobile offering centers on Horrid Henry’s love of pranks and mischief. Fans will be able to explore the main character’s Big Box of Pranks, a container filled with Henry’s notes and drawings that depict mischievous ideas.
Kids can play a range of mini-games based on the ideas, including 10 different challenges like Super Spider Scarer, Gross Goo, Bumper Burptastic, Bogey Flick and Demon Decorator!. They can compete against other users to unlock five additional mini-games to win awards and be crowned Lord High Excellent Majesty of Pranks.
With a fourth series currently airing on CITV, a total of 208 episodes are now available, making Horrid Henry one of the biggest children’s animated shows in the UK.
According to the company, the digital arena is a strong area of growth for Horrid Henry. The show is available through Netflix in the UK and on both Hulu and Netflix in the US, and there are a number of Horrid Henry episode releases on iTunes. The Horrid Henry website (www.horridhenry.me), which features exclusive content, is also growing with over 121,000 members and more than two million visits.
