The fabled Owlman of Mawnan Smith has been immortalised in a video game designed for mobile phones and sold worldwide on Amazon.

The game, based on reported sightings of a large, winged creature near Mawnan church in the late 70s, was created by local developer Steve Parkes using pictures taken in and around the village.

Players must set out to hunt for missing Uncle Jack before nightfall and the return of the dark spirit known as the Owlman, a creature which in real life is believed to have been a large eagle owl which escaped from an aviary.
