Play “Toss the Turtle” and Win Darksiders!

Note: This competition has ended.

I thoroughly enjoyed playing Darksiders (read our review here) and in our first competition in 2010, we want you to experience that feeling too. Thanks to our sponsors, SterKinekor, we’re giving away a copy of Darksiders for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, and a Darksiders-branded t-shirt to go with each copy.

Instead of the usual lucky draw type of competition, we’re trying to keep things a little different here at Onelargeprawn. Based on the popularity of our play-a-game-to-win-a-game idea last year with our Boxhead competition, we’re going to ask you to do something heinous…to a turtle. You might go to hell for it, but I’d like to think the end justifies the means. ;-)

So what do you have to do? Find out after the jump.

To stand a chance of winning the prize, all you need to do is play Toss the Turtle and send us your high score. We’ll have two separate high scores tables (one for PS3, one for Xbox 360) and the two people at the top of the tables at the end of the competition will win. Here are the steps you need to follow.

1. Head to our Toss the Turtle page and play the game.
2. When you’re happy with the distance you’ve tossed the poor turtle, take a screenshot (howto) of the game, ensuring your distance is clearly visible.
3. Attach your screenshot (preferably in JPG format) to an email message and send it to with these other details:

a. Name
b. Address
c. Console of choice (PS3 or Xbox 360)
d. T-shirt size (S / M / L / XL)

This competition runs from Monday, February 15th to midnight on Sunday, February 28th and is only open to South African residents. Terms and conditions apply.

During the competition period, you can submit as many scores as you want under the same name, but pay attention to our high scores page as we’ll be regularly updating it. At the end of our competition, if your name tops the high scores list for the platform you chose, you’ll will have won. In the event that there is a tie in the highest scores, the winner will be the person who submitted that high score first. Got it? Cool, now toss that turtle!
