We worked with the #1 department store in the world, Selfridges, to create the game Elfridges as part of their Christmas 2014 campaign. The platformer game was created in HTML5, and features 4
zones with bonus levels, and tough final boss at the end. Each zone was themed around a specific store which helped promote that location, and each has their own intro scene:
The game features several quests that the user must complete to get a top score. The quests are given by cute animals within each zone, and require the player to find a hidden item within the zone they are currently in. We used Phaser and PhaserLE to provide the backbone of the games architecture, and we packaged the game for the Apple App Store using CocoonJS. Cocoon is quite powerful, and enabled us to hit frames rates of 60FPS, and also support features such as Facebook and twitter integration.

Spiderman Main Menu
We are happy to announce the release of a game we worked on with Mind Orchard for LEGO Spiderman, which is now released! GrindheadGames worked on the development of this title, which features Spiderman facing his mightiest foe, the Green Goblin. Players can use either their Desktop or tablet device to play against pragmatically generated levels, while saving lives in the process.

LEGO Friends Ranch
LEGO Ranch is a new HTML5 casual game for desktop and tablet. It was created to promote a Ranch toy in the LEGO Friends product line. We worked with Mind Orchard to create the game, who supplied some really great assets to work with. The game was built using ImpactJS, and LEGO: Friends runs really well on iPad’s and Android tablets, running at 60FPS across devices.
Within the game, users are presented with requests from the 4 animals on the Ranch: a Bunny, Pony, Lamb and Chicken. To complete the tasks, the player must drag the item from a characters basket onto the correct animal. The game features an achievement system with 12 achievements to progress through.
We also want to say a special thank you to Luke Wilde for his assistance on the project.

Bud Light Hotel Auto Pilot
We recently worked on a project to produce a game for a Bud Light Super Bowl promotion. The game involves an endurance race where the user is required to complete a race which takes a minimum of 24 hours to finish. By avoiding obstacles including the legendary Kraken and Whirlpool’s of doom, the user can progress through the race and reach the end. Power Ups also are spawned throughout the level to help the player. There are 3 types of power ups available to the player, Speed Boost, Auto Pilot, and Invincibility. Each power up lasts a different amount of time, and provides a different perk to aid the completion of the journey. By collecting as many power ups as possible, and avoiding the obstacles, the player can record a record time and win a great prize from the folks over at Bud Light!

The game was deployed on the Bleacher Report website, but unfortunately is no longer live to play.
