Angry Mango a team of students from the University of Wales Newport, which includes Henry Hoffman, Kate Killick (from Computer Games Design), Ahmed Zaman, Matt Dennis, Greg O’Brian (from Games Development & AI), have won at the 2011 Dare to be Digital competition.

Their game Mush is a single player, side-scrolling platformer for Windows Phone 7. You take control of your characters emotions, unlocking new abilities with which to progress.  Five emotional states are present, each enabling new abilities such as floating, sinking, smashing and gravity shifting.

Emotions are changed directly by the player through either drawing a smile, a sad face, a single line or rotating or shaking the phone. Simple movement is controlled with tilting and unlike other platform games you can neither jump nor die.

Mush has been also been announced at a nominee for the BAFTA Games Awards – Ones to Watch http://www.next-gen.biz/news/bafta-games-awards-nominees-announced
