Rezzed! Puppygames Hi-Score Competition, Space Hulk

By Jim Rossignol on June 18th, 2013 at 3:00 pm.


Makers of retro arcadian pixels of joy, Puppygames, send word that they are running a hi-score competition at Rezzed 2013. (That’s this weekend at the NEC in Birmingham.) If you win, you get a Nexus 7. Nice! They explain: “Under our baleful glare, hapless punters who attempt to creep past our booth unnoticed will be captured and enslaved in front of one of our games and made to play for hiscores. Whomsoever has the highest score in each game at the end of Rezzed is going to win a Nexus 7, so we’ll also be extracting contact details out of anyone who gets the #1 hiscore. Those left mentally unscarred and unruffled by the experience may wish to come back later to defend their scores if they want to be in with a chance of winning.” But there’s more! “Just in case you’re inept at blasting aliens and robots to bits but would like the opportunity to try more, we’re also giving away all our games for free to anyone who drops by.”

And then, if you want a change of pace, you can play the Space Hulk alpha at the Full Control stand, or Sir, You Are Being Hunted at the Big Robot stand. So come to Rezzed. Okay?

    I would come to Rezzed but I’m half a world away. Waaaaah!

      Agreed. Can we petition for a Rezzed North America, Electric Boogaloo?

      • The Random One says:

        I think you mean Rezzed South America. North America already has plenty of toys. I want some!

    My Nexus 7 always wanted another brother or sister to play with!

    A sad reflection on our times when we must incentivise saving the world.

    • princec says:

      Well, the invasion does start with Birmingham*. The rest of the world might not mind if you maybe turn up too late to save that bit ;)

      * except in RotT, where Basingstoke gets the finger first. Either way it’s a win.

      Pfft. What did the world ever do for us?

      • Premium User Badge Lord Custard Smingleigh says:

        I’m quite fond of gravity.

        • Sparkasaurusmex says:

          Yeah, I’m attracted to it

        • PatrickSwayze says:

          I don’t know about gravity. Some days I feel more pushed down, than pulled down.

          • Premium User Badge Lord Custard Smingleigh says:

            The troof of cours that “gravity” is not pulling fors. Is nofin more then space pressure.

        • Premium User Badge Gap Gen says:

          Lighten up, old boy. A smile a day keeps the… ah, wait, I’m mistaken, I’m thinking of apples. As you were.

          • lowprices says:

            A smile away keeps the apples away? Sir, I believe you have gone mad to your core.

          • Premium User Badge Lord Custard Smingleigh says:

            Commoners go mad. The moneyed class becomes “eccentric”. Gentlemen become “charming”.

          • lowprices says:

            Then I declare you have gone mad to your core.

          • Premium User Badge Lord Custard Smingleigh says:

            Regrettably we now reach fisticuffs.

          • lowprices says:

            Fisticuffs? How course. If you were the man of honour you claim to be we would duel the traditional British way; with cutting remarks. We shall meet at dawn, walk ten paces away from each other, then take it in turns to criticise each others person and estate until one of us is forced to concede.

          • wwwhhattt says:

            “How course”? You appear to be mistaking fisticuffs for a form of golf.

          • lowprices says:

            I meant ‘coarse’ of course. I am shamed, and will have to pre-emptively concede the duel.

          • Premium User Badge Gap Gen says:

            Then you will not be needing your fisticufflinks, sir?

    I was initially bummed that this years Rezzed line up is interesting me less than last years, but then I realized it just means I’ll have more free time to hog Space Hulk!

    Also free Puppygames games? Sure, why not. I think there’s still… one I haven’t got.

  5. Phendron says:

    I wonder why there was never a Nexus 6. Sure they were buggy and murderous, but it probably would have gone over everyone’s head anyways.

  6. AaronLee says:

    Days like these, I wish I was a Brit.

    • Premium User Badge Gap Gen says:

      We have fewer Es it’s true – well, one fewer, I suppose, and more “zed”s, as you have it.

  7. jamesgecko says:

    A Nexus 7? Hmm. An interesting incentive, considering that all the Puppygames titles are programmed in Android’s native tongue, yet none are available on the platform. Yet?
