Mumbai : Games2win – the leading global mobile games publisher with over 220 million game downloads announced an innovative partnership with Sony Pictures Networks India to launch a bouquet of “CID” mobile games inspired by one of the most successful television shows of India.
“CID – Daya Darwaza Tod Do” the first game of the series has already notched up half a million downloads and ranks amongst the top 10 action games in India. The game can be downloaded and played here:
Alok Kejriwal – CEO and Co-Founder of Games2win, said, “Sony Television’s CID is one of the most iconic shows of Indian Television. It’s an all-time epic. That motivated us to partner with SET to create original, adrenalin pumping, super thrilling mobile CID mobile games that are just as exciting as the shows themselves.”
The ‘Why’ for these games is simple. Most millennials who have grown up watching CID shows (many with their Dads), now have a deeper relationship with their mobile screen than with their TV at home. It’s evident that they will enjoy gaming with CID as much as they love watching it on a bigger screen. The initial launch numbers of the game have proved our thinking.
In the first game, ‘Daya Darwaza Tod Do’ the Superhero CID officer Daya does what he does best and most famous for – catching goons, breaking doors and solving cases. In the game, players run as Daya solve through over 5 Unique ‘Cases’, complete 50 unique levels and navigate Mumbai famous landmarks such as Bandra Bandstand and Goregaon National Park. All along, as Daya runs and breaks down doors, his mentor – ACP Pradyuman encourages him and giving him clues for this next mission.
The game’s traction on the Play Store suggests that we are on track to cross the 10 million download mark in a few months. Consumers have loved the game, rated it 4.2 stars and have been writing to us with some many new ideas for many more levels and game variations”.
Amogh Dusad, Head Content, Partnership and New Initiatives said,“Sony pictures network is strategically focused on the fast growing online gaming space. Most of our iconic shows and characters lend themselves to great gaming potential. CID game (Daya Darwaza Tod do) is the first of many steps we intend to take in this direction. We are very pleased and excited with the tremendous response the game has garnered in such a short span of time.”
