Leading global mobile games publisher with over 220 million game downloads, Games2win has announced a 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.
The first game of the series, CID – Daya Darwaza Tod Do, 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 on both Android and iOS.
Games2win CEO and co-founder Alok Kejriwal commented, “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 and super thrilling mobile CID mobile games that are just as exciting as the shows themselves.”
Daya Darwaza Tod Do finds the CID officer Daya doing 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 five 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 besides giving him clues for this next mission.
The reason for coming up with these games is simple. Most millennials have grown up watching CID shows who now have a deeper relationship with their mobile screen than with their TV at home. The makers are sure 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. The game has got good traction on Google Play Store and suggests that it might cross the 10 million download mark in a few months. Consumers have loved the game, rated it 4.2 stars and many have been writing to the makers with many new ideas for many more levels and game variations.
“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,” added SPN Partnership and New Initiatives content head Amogh Dusad.
