Dubai Delivery game wins app award

The game showcases different areas of Dubai, like Karama or Downtown, and allows users to take a ‘behind the scenes’ look at the city.

DUBAI // A smartphone game that allows players to manage a delivery service in Dubai has been named Favourite Website Awards’ application of the day.

Dubai Delivery shows areas of the city, such as Karama, and gives users a behind the scenes look at it.

“It is a great honour to win this award,” said Peter Saghegyi, managing director of game developer Sentiomedia.

“Due to the tremendous amount of apps, it is extremely hard to differentiate your idea and get the attention it deserves, especially if it is an educational game.

“We are happy to be the first internationally acclaimed studio to portray Dubai via a cutting-edge medium such as smartphone apps.

“To see your home come to life in a game is priceless. We hope the residents of Dubai will feel the same way when playing the game.”
