In November 2013 MDM student Chris Lee launched his iOS app, Sprout Up!, making it in the Top 25 in the Apple Store's Canadian Paid Apps section. The game is part of Chris Lee's Venture Internship to complete his Master’s Degree. Learning about a successful product launch and seeing a product through to market, is the goal of his internship. Sprout Up! is a game about Daisy, a hungry plant. Players need to help Daisy grow by feeding her sun and raindrops. The trick is balance—feed Daisy too much sun and she’ll dry out, feed her too much rain and she’ll drown.
This physics-based game features a chameleon named Mango that you can immediately fall in love with. Mango is a dashing chameleon, in search of delicious treats to fill his empty belly. When he comes upon a vintage café that has mouthwatering flies in the window he simply can't resist. It's no ordinary café however, he must put some effort into earning his food. The action begins inside the café where Mango swings from his tongue to crash into various objects in order to unleash and eat the delicious flies.
There are 50 exciting levels with a variety of obstacles with different properties, power ups and trophies. Players must think carefully about each swing they take in order to get the highest reward – the Gold Trophy!
