HELP make a difference.
War Child UK’s fundraising app, HELP: The Game, has arrived on mobile devices and features five new games from Gameloft, Wooga, Featherweight Games and Sports Interactive. Developed alongside War Child UK’s US fundraising partner Children in Conflict, the HELP app is available now on Google Play and Amazon Appstore.
The app includes ‘Rupert, Sell ‘em Don’t Break ‘em’ from mobile developers, Wooga, and sees players take on the role of an elephant working in an antique store while he does his best not to break everything around him. Football Manager creator Sports Interactive also bring a new title, ‘Tickets Please,’ in which you play as a train conductor who must validate travellers’ tickets within a specific time limit.
Gameloft, developers of the Asphalt series, has created ‘Fifty Buddies,’ where players must watch over fifty jelly babies as they race around a track, complete with wrecking balls and other traps, and lastly, Featherweight Games brings its laundry to the app with new title ‘Mediocre Housekeeping.’

War Child UK is no stranger to enlisting the help of the game industry to raise money for children trapped in wartorn areas; 11 bit Studio’s This War of Mine features the DLC ‘War Child’ which sees all proceeds going to the charity.
“The mobile games industry offers a great opportunity to engage and entertain millions across the globe,” said Adam Holmes, Gaming Partnerships, at War Child UK. “It’s been amazing to see the industry rally behind HELP, and we’re blown away by the games that have been created in just six days. Our partners in this represent the best in mobile gaming talent and we’re hugely grateful for their support.”
