Hey, kids! Jump with Peppa Pig on Windows 8 and Windows Phone

Peppa Pig has arrived on both Windows 8 and Windows Phone. Not familiar with the name? Peppa Pig is a large pre-school property, and is particularly popular here in the UK. Originating from an animated TV series, Peppa Pig has grown into a massive IP. The show revolves around Peppa, an anthropomorphic female pig, her family and friends. You can now take Peppa with you when out and about.

So, what's Peppa Pig Puddle Jump all about? It's a children's game (if you haven't guessed already), which takes the player into the world of muddy puddle jumping. Daddy Pig is currently the reigning record muddy puddle jumping champion, but Peppa and George are looking to lift the trophy themselves. This is where you come in. 

Peppa Pig Puddle Jump

Taking control of Daddy Pig, Peppa or George, you'll be able to compete against family and friends in a single touch, multi-levelled, jumping game. The aim of the game is to get as muddy as possible (it's not a Doodle Jump remake). Since this is a game aimed at children, expect basic controls and incredible light-hearted gameplay. You need to make the biggest, muddiest splash possible.

Much like Angry Birds, you'll be able to progress through available levels and earn up to three splats (think stars) for each one completed. Starting at the beginning of the level, you're tasked with jumping into multiple puddles, avoiding bushes and generally making a mess. If you despise jumping in puddles when outside, but wish to enjoy some action, this is the perfect game for you.

You can download Peppa Pig from the Windows 8 (opens in new tab) and Windows Phone Stores for £1.39 and £1.49 respectively (region restricted - 64MB, only 1GB RAM hardware supported, lower memory devices will be supported in a coming update). Just remember kids (and adults - yes, I'm looking at you), wear boots when outside and jumping in puddles!

  • Arg can't download to 920 its always something. Region locked to UK then?
