About Street Striker:

The game, Street Striker was created on behalf of ChildLine, after MCM Net was approached with a brief for a mini game for the site earlier this year. Street Striker is an addictive online game that tests your football skills to the max as you try to control your player to kick his football into objects like bins or a skip. You must avoid other objects that try to obstruct your aim, or use them to help you hit your target!

Angry Birds, has been downloaded more than 300m times since its launch in 2009, and the game, built by Rovio, is nominated in the category for the PC version of the app.

MCM Net Managing Director, John McMahon said; “We’re proud to have been nominated for this award against such strong and well-known brands such as Angry Birds. We regularly work with the NSPCC and Childline so to see one of the games we’ve produced for them nominated in such a high profile national award is a great reward for the team’s hard work.”

The public voting stage is open until 30 September. Please vote for the game here http://www.thenetawards.com To play Street Striker please visit http://www.childline.org.uk/Play/Games/Pages/StreetStriker.aspx
