Quirkat launches ‘Al-Moosiqar’ – The Star

Leading Middle East games development studio, Quirkat today announced the launch of its newest online game ‘Al-Moosiqar’ (The Musician). Al-Moosiqar is available exclusively on the company’s premium online Arabic/English Games Portal, Fuzztak, (www.fuzztak.com).
‘The Musician’ offers players the chance to reconnect with one of Oriental music’s greatest instruments: The ‘Oud’ or lute as it is more commonly known in the West. The player controls the in-game Musician’s movements to play back classical Oud pieces. Using familiar and intuitive controls, the user can help our Musician hit notes and strum according to the flow of notes on the screen. The Oudist’s facial expressions indicate the success of the playback and successful consecutive notes improve score through multipliers.Since its launch in 2008, Fuzztak has set its mark as the Middle East’s leading games portal with a variety of premium online, downloadable and mobile games for all ages.
“Since its launch, Fuzztak’s mission has been to dominate the Arabic online casual games space. We are now very proud to say that our subscriber objectives have been surpassed and we are looking forward to a very busy online year”, said Mahmoud Ali Khasawneh, Quirkat’s CEO. “Al-Moosiqar is yet another demonstration of our commitment to building unique gaming experiences generating from our culture and heritage. The Oud is the most important Arab instrument and is nicknamed the Prince of the Instruments. We consider it part of our mission to bring such proud Arab achievements to the gaming world and provide regional gamers with a unique game experience”
