Competition Time! Win “The Splatters” on Xbox 360!

NOTE: This competition has ended.

Who doesn’t love a good competition? This time, the kind folks at Spiky Snail Games have given us a few codes for The Splatters for Xbox360, and so they’re up for grabs. I reviewed the game over here, so if you don’t know what The Splatters is all about, give the post a read. It’s entertaining, I promise.

The game was 50% off to Gold members last week (400 MS Points), but if you missed the sale—or aren’t an Xbox Live Gold member—and you still want to play the Splatters in all its colorful, gooey, splattery glory, all you need to do is answer one teensy weensy simple question, and BAM! Your name goes into the draw for one of the codes!

Question: Name one of the stunt types that can be performed by the Splatters. Hint: I mention a few in my review, but any of the stunt answers will do!

This time, the competition is open to our readers worldwide, so hit the jump, and have at it!

[There was a form here. It is gone now.]

The usual terms and conditions with the exception that entry to this competition is open to anyone, worldwide. It will end at noon (SAST) on Friday, October 19th 2012, after which names will be drawn and the winners announced. Good luck!

We Review: Rock Band Blitz

Just when we thought the music genre of video games was a dying breed, the folks at Harmonix come up with a way to shake things up. Cue Rock Band Blitz, a rhythm game that doesn’t require a whole new set of peripheral plastic instruments. Let’s rock this review!

We Review: Awesomenauts

What do you get when you cross an 80s style intro with funky animation, powerups, and insane multiplayer side-scrolling game play? You get Awesomenauts, of course. You could also get a lemon meringue pie if you get the ingredients wrong, but mostly you’ll get Awesomenauts. I took to the battleground to see what this game was all about.

We Review: The Splatters

What do you get when you mix a physics-based puzzle game with suicidal blobs of paint, all mixed with some fancy acrobatics? You get The Splatters, of course. I took this game for a messy flip to see what it was all about.

We Review: BurgerTime World Tour

Retro-remakes are all the rage right now, and the latest arcade game to receive a makeover is BurgerTime, this time returning with the subtitle World Tour. Is this game as deliciously fun and playable as the old classic? Lettuce find out.

We Review: Zumba Fitness Rush

Fitness games are an awesome way to combine something I don’t like (exercise) with the one thing I do (video gaming). I’d originally played the first Zumba Fitness game when it appeared for Kinect, and although I enjoyed it, I found it a tad too difficult for a complete Zumba n00b. I was slightly wary, then, when I heard about the new game in the series, titled Zumba Fitness Rush, but I’m nothing if not a sucker for dance and rhythm games, so I took it for a whirl around the living room floor to check out its moves.

We Review: Mass Effect 3

Mass Effect 3 is the conclusion to the brilliant sci-fi RPG series detailing Commander Shepard’s efforts to save the galaxy from total destruction. Or at least partial destruction—you can never trust a bad guy to do this sort of thing right. You’ve probably already heard and read many dissenting opinions about the game, so I imagine you’re asking why you should read mine. Because I’m entertaining, that’s why. Also, I have some good, common-person common-sense opinions. So read on.

Competition Time! Win a copy of Mercury Hg for Xbox 360!

We haven’t had a nice, fun competition in a long time, have we? We underlings figured that, since Lord Prawn is not keeping too close an eye on things here at Prawn Central (himself being over in Sri Lanka at the moment), we’re going to bestow upon you, Our Awesome Readers, a prize: Mercury Hg for Xbox 360 (courtesy of UTV Ignition Games). That’s right! You can win yourself the very game that was just reviewed here! The caveat, of course, is that we’re going to require you to read the entertaining review! Nothing for nothing, as they say! So get reading. We’ll wait.

Done? Did you see the part about the banana? Good. Bananas always have such high comedic value, no matter where you stick them.

So, to win, all you have to do is this: leave a comment in this post telling us what your favourite element of the periodic table is, and why. Don’t comment your entries in the review’s post—it won’t be counted. The judges will pick the most creative answer, and award that lucky person a download code for Mercury Hg for Xbox 360! You can also help us spread the word of the competition by tweeting the following:

#OneLargePrawn is giving away #MercuryHg for Xbox360. I’m in to win! You can too! http://bit.ly/tKABch

After all, more readers means more competitions!

The standard rules apply: no active contributor to this site or their direct families allowed to enter, one entry per person, etc etc. Read the rules if you’re in any doubt. Now get cracking! You have until Wendesday 9 November, 2011!

We Review: Mercury Hg (PSN | XBLA)

Mercury Hg (I know it’s tautological—you won’t believe the number of people who insisted on telling me this!) is the latest puzzle-slash-rolling platformer game in a series that started life as Archer Maclean’s Mercury on the PSP. Find out whether this game is completely Boron, a pain in the Arsenic, or pure, unadulterated Gold: after the Br…eak. Read more
