Random August iPhone Game Giveaway!


I am going to introduce a new segment today called “X1Zero’s Random [insert month] iPhone [insert app/game] Giveaway“. (It’s a work in progress :))

This segment will:

  • Last 24 hours
  • Only happen a couple of times a month (maybe less or maybe more)
  • Be extremely easy to win
  • Be posted at random (so no more 3AM internet lurking for our contests!)

You can see why I am calling it random!

Everyone loves their iPhone and even more love free stuff, so I figured why not blend the two together? Everyone that reads my posts knows how much I love to give stuff away!

So, what’s up for grabs?

I am giving away FOUR (4) promo codes for the iPhone game ‘ThreadBound‘. You may recall my review of it here.

Threadbound Start

ThreadBound is loaded with great features! It has a great control scheme, solid sounds and visuals, a ton of levels, and a level editor (wicked cool). To add to this, ThreadBound was recently updated to include Social Networking with Twitter and Facebook, an online chat, a friends list, a high score leaderboard and ACHIEVEMENTS!!!


All of this and more for $0.99 is a great price, but it can be yours for free!

How to Win

Since this is the inaugural post of my random giveaway randomness, to enter, just comment below the following:

1.) What do you think of Threadbound the game?

2.) Is this new giveaway segment a good idea?

How easy is that!

And remember, winners are chosen at random and the contest ends August 5, 2009 at 5:00PM PST.

    1) I think the game Threadbound reminds me of Lemmings. In Lemmings you have a bunch of little lemmings. You have to click on certain lemmings and get them to either dig or build bridges to get to point b from point a. The objective was to get as many of them to the door without sacrificing a certain percentage of them.

    If this game is anything like Lemmings, which by reading your review… it sounds like it is a lot like it, then I think I should enjoy the game.

    A couple days a go (maybe yesterday :D) I just discovered a game I like that is a lot like Risk but it's way way way way quicker. It's called Lux Touch. If you think I'm spamming the game, you can remove it from my post… but I didn't make it at all and it's free anyways.

    2) Yes, I do like this giveaway segment. I tried a couple times before like your following twitter contests and the ones where you win a case, but I haven't won any contests yet.

    Whoever posts now below me, good luck with the contest!

  • 1. Looks like a fun game
    2. Yes I like that idea

  • fuzzylogic

    1) How will I know until I've tried the game:->?
    2) Giveaways are great, and contests are better, but I'm worried it'll keep me up all night wondering if I won.

  • Tenshi

    1) Not sure I like social achievements… then everybody would know how much time I waste playing these games πŸ™‚

    1.) Threadbound looks like an interesting, unique game for the iphone. I've never seen something like that before. If there is something like it, well, I've missed it. Seems like it'd be fun to pick up and play.

    2.) I always like giveaways and think it is a great way to get new users to the site, or reward the users that already visit the site. So, great idea. Looking forward to more.
