DHX Interactive, interactive arm of Canada’s DHX Media and maker of youth interactive games, activities and online environments, has snagged the 2009/2010 Applied Arts Magazine Interactive Award for Mobile App (single) for the iPhone game Apollo 11: The Game , which was developed in collaboration with NASA to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the moon landing.

The game enables iPhone users to take a trip to the moon and use controls to guide a mission from liftoff to splash down, over seven levels, featuring 3-D environments and archival mission imagery from the NASA archives.

During its launch month of July 2009, Apollo 11: The Game was ranked among the top-25 paid apps. An optimized version of the game will be available for the iPad this summer.

Established in 1986, Applied Arts is a Canadian magazine of visual communications and a leading voice of the industry. The Applied Arts Interactive Awards are in recognition of creative excellence, based on creative merit, technical excellence and sustainability for end use.
