Aardman Animations has produced a new game based on the popular CBBC series Wizards vs Aliens.

The scrolling puzzle platform game, titled Eye of Bashtarr, aims to incorporate the drama of the show with interactive gameplay, supporting the launch of series two of the hit show.

Working alongside CBBC and BBC Wales Interactive, the animation studio has created a game that encourages kids to work their way through a series of puzzles and challenges in order to recover The Eye of Bashtarr.

Laura Chilcott, senior producer (digital), Aardman Animations, said: "It's been fantastic to work so closely with the production team and the Wizards vs Aliens TV writers on this project.

"We've used lots of techniques in the production of this game. From new creative storytelling techniques, through the use on in-game comic panels, to new technical solutions such as the use of boned animation software.

"Producing the game has been a truly collaborative effort between Aardman, BBC Wales Interactive and CBBC and I think this spectacular game shows how successful this kind of collaboration can be.

"We're really proud of the game and we hope everyone enjoys playing it."

The game is now available on the Wizards vs Aliens site for fans across the UK.
