Three students from St Clare’s Comprehensive in Manorhamilton have just launched their new phone app ‘Squeazy’ on to the world stage.
Squeazy, originally a challenging one person game in which the user attempts to link characters ‘Drop’ and ‘Drip’ together using compressed air inside a plastic bottle, is the frustrating but fun brainchild of Matthew Hewston, Luke Sheridan and Fergus Munday.
Having claimed first prize in the Senior Category of the National Student Enterprise Awards at Croke Park last year, the three teens decided to design a phone app so as to maximise Squeazy’s exposure.
The app went live worldwide last Tuesday, December 2nd and has already been a huge hit since it has become available on both iTunes and Google Play.
The lads teamed up with 15-year-old Johnathan White from Cavan whose company Sillan Studios specialises in app development and special effects.
The aim of the app is to descend by tapping the screen and avoiding bubbles. Users can collect bottle caps to customize their Drop on the way to earning high scores.
