Co-founder of social networking website, Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg,couldn’t help but express his admiration at the creation of an astonishing game by Tayo, an 11-year-old Nigerian developer.
The Facebook boss disclosed his pleasure in a post on his Facebook page and stated that he is looking forward to future projects by the Nigerian Prodigy.
“This is Tayo. He’s 11 and he recently showed me a game he built called Spike Rush.
“I got my first computer when I was Tayo’s age, and just like him I started out coding games. I’ve always thought building simple games was the gateway to building more complex apps.”
Zuckerberg, the world’s 5th richest person, also said the games developed by Tayo were more complex than the games he first built.
“My first games were simpler than Tayo’s, but no matter your level, there’s nothing like playing something you built yourself.
Recall that mark Zuckerberg recently visited Nigeria in September where he met with young Nigerian entrepreneurs, developers and also the President, Muhammadu buhari.
“Spike Rush is available in the iOS App Store. I’m looking forward to seeing what Tayo builds next!”. he added.
Spike Rush is an Android mobile app and a multi-level archery game designed for everyone of any age group.
The Player’s mission is to shoot an arrow or spike aimed at a shark inside a bubble.
To complete a level, you need to shoot according to the number inside the bubble, provided that you did not crash with other arrows or spike. Once finished, the bubble will burst and the shark will be free.
