Great OnLine LETRIS 2 tournament this Saturday

3 Feb


The developer of Letris 2 has informed me that there is a 60 minutes onLine tournament coming this weekend.

It’s free to take part in the tournament. You just need update the version of Letris 2 and touch the “Tournament” button.

The purpose is  to engage as many people as possible to join to us and enjoy the first virtual Letris tournament on next saturday. The game has an average of more than 200,000 players per day so we hope to concentrate enough players in that single hour to have fun.
The winner who certainly will go on to the game history. Will be announced on Facebook and Twitter and receive $ 40 iTunes card.

How does it work?

1- Press the “Tournament” button in the game to see when the next tournament will be held.

2- At the time and date indicated be prepared to enjoy an intense 60 minute online tournament and press the “Tournament” button so that the system can randomly search for your first adversary. This is how your first qualifying level will begin!

3- If you manage to win your match you will move on to the next round, you will be given a password which you can tweet to demonstrate your achievement and you can carry on playing, but this time, facing only players who are on the same round as you.

4- If you loose a match: No problem! You stay on your round and you can keep playing matches within the same round as many times as you like until the 60 minutes of the tournament are up.

And the winner is…

When the 60 minutes are over, the competition will be finalised and the winner will be the first person to tweet the password from the highest round.

For each tournament we have prepared a small prize for the winner, although, as losers say: It’s not the winning that’s important; it’s the taking part that counts.

The developer will be publishing information about the prizes for each tournament on our Facebook page for those who are curious.

8 Nov

Nicolas Games has a new surprise prepared for its Afterfall: InSanity fans.  A new contest is providing an opportunity for you to win limited edition Afterfall gadgets, along with a Limited Edition of the InSanity game!

How can you participate?  Simply click “Like” on Afterfall: InSanity’s Facebook page and submit a photo that reminds you of a post-apocalyptic setting. Nicolas Games states that a trip to Chernobyl isn’t necessary here – just a good look around at abandoned and dilapidated houses and factory buildings.

“There are many abandoned or destroyed places that perfectly reflect the atmosphere of post-apocalyptic. Many of them have already been discovered, others are still waiting for perpetuation. Photography also gives an opportunity to show the reality in a completely different way. We hope that through this contest you will get a little different look to your city and its surroundings,” says Patrick Hamerlak, Marketing Director of Nicolas Games.

The first part of the contest runs through November 25th, giving you plenty of time to submit your photos. From then until December 5th, Afterfall: InSanity Facebook fans can vote for for best photo. Winners will be announced on December 6th.
