Digital brand Ooks has launched an expansive suite of new apps following the success of its debut download Ooks: What’s that Rumbling?

Zulleon, the company behind the brand, released five new apps to expand the ‘Ookiverse’ and offer fans a multitude of new ways to interact and personalise their favourite characters,

Just launched on iOS and Android, and already getting rave reviews, is Ooks Rush, a fast- paced infinity runner game where players can discover the Groaning Oaks Forest, Marsh Mallow volcano and other areas in the incredible world of Ooks  

Younger children they can express their creativity through the wonder of virtual glitter and sparkle paint in Colouring Ooks, while Ooks Toys Box is bursting with six games to promote learning and development of key skills through play. For kids who want to explore a world of colour, Match 3 OOKsome is a fast-paced action and adventure game with plenty of Ooks charm.

Beyond app stores, Zulleon has launched a 22 x 90-second series of animated shorts on both YouTube and, available in the coming weeks, Amazon Prime Video. Brand new shorts will be launched each month, with further broadcast announcements soon to be made on new launches across global streaming and video on demand platforms.

“Building on the incredible success of our first Ooks offering, What’s That Rumbling, we are delighted to be rolling out and bringing to our highly engaged audience more great Ooks content,” says Noel Donegan, CEO at Zulleon,”Our animated shorts in particular will delight our audience, introducing them to the many zany and whacky characters that inhabit The World of Ooks.

“We have been thrilled by the fact that our first app has been downloaded in over 110 countries and existing online content viewed by an audience of over one million. Our new suite of apps and animated shorts will allow us to build on this incredible traction putting us firmly on track to have over eight million Ooks created by year end.

“As you would expect we are now involved in conversations with highly engaged potential broadcast and licensing partners to ensure a full pipeline of activity and product launches into 2020. These are exciting times in the World of Ooks.”
