  • Published by Vedat
Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, earlier this month unveiled its new inflight entertainment (IFE) games offering becoming the first airline in the world to launch six traditional Middle Eastern games on-board its flights.

The new games include the regional favorites of Tawle, an Arabian-style backgammon game, Basha, a popular regional card game as well as a modern creation, Moosiqar, which offers players the chance to create melodies with one of the Middle East’s oldest instruments, the ‘Oud’, using familiar and intuitive controls.

The new set of games, distributed by Ensemble Media contain a sub-set designed by Quirkat, an independent Emirati multiplatform video games developer. The Quirkat games were created specifically with the Middle Eastern consumer in mind, with high-quality graphics and exciting content that are sure to make them a hit among all the airline’s passengers. Basha, Moosiqar, MENA Speed, Quirkat and two versions of Tawla, along with fourteen other new games, supplied to Gulf Air by Ensemble Media, have now been successfully installed across the airline’s entire fleet.
