In the spirit of the World Cup 2010, Wagamama wanted to challenge their loyal fans, old and new, to a classic game of football keepy-uppy — but not without a twist.
Long gone are the days of using the tried and tested boot to keep a football blissfully bouncing in the air; this is about wielding chopsticks to keep up a gyoza. Genius?! Fortunately with the help of Box2Dflash, this actually makes for a really playable game of skill.
Sadly the budget didn’t quite stretch to true Facebook integration. But fear not; you needn’t send a telegram if score-based, peer-group boasting is your thing (we sneakily hijacked the standard “facebook.com/sharer.php” functionality).
I know what you’re thinking… that you’d be some kind of ‘gyoza grandmaster’ at this game? Well then, less talk more action please! Play the game*.
* The campaign has now ended and the game is no longer live, however you can play it on the Blue Barracuda staging site.
