Top prize goes to Dundee university's finest

Abertay hopefuls win Samsung app contest

Three student developers based at Abertay University have won £5,000 after taking part in Samsung’s app development contest.

Tom DeMajo, Erin Michno and Ian Reynolds together took the top prize for Moeba, “a side-scrolling action game with a distinctive organic art style”, the university said.

Samsung’s design contest sought students from across the UK to create games for the company’s custom Android store.

Students from ten leading universities applied – such as Oxford, Imperial College London and Trinity College Dublin.

“All of the finalists created interesting and high-polished apps, so it was really an honour and a surprise to win the challenge,” said Michno from the winning team, Quartic Llama.
