BBC's 'Nugget' app is too cute to ignore

BBC in collaboration with UNICEF has launched a gaming app called 'Nugget'. The game has been developed for kids between 15 and 19 years of age. Check out the details inside

What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word ‘nugget‘? Probably nugget– the food? But the nugget we are talking about is not a food item but a gaming app. BBC’s international development charity– BBC Media Action in United Nation in partnership with the Internation Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) has launched a gaming app called ‘Nugget’ for the teenagers between 15 and 19 years of age.

The Android operating system (OS)- based app has been designed keeping in view a human centred design process and it intends to familiarise the children with their surroundings. This unique game involves seven unique levels like ‘Taak – Jhank Padosi‘ (the nosy neighbours), ‘Ungli Aunty‘ (intrusive aunty), Chugalkhor Chacha (tattletale uncle) and (Fenku Uncle) exaggerating uncle among others (isn’t it exciting and funny?!).

The app is fairly simple to play. All you have to do is dodge the ‘arms’ to collect the stars. Interestingly, you can play the game endlessly and as a reward, you will get amazing power ups. The ‘Nugget’ app is available for download on the Google Play Store and it has already been downloaded 1000 times in just 2 days of its launch. “Jhel mat Khel – the swag mantra of Nugget, the cool new game in town,” the description of the game states in the Play Store.

Don’t worry if you are above 19 years of age. You still can enjoy the game. (Extra byte: it’s really fun!)
