Rezzed! Puppygames Hi-Score Competition, Space Hulk

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!

    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.

      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?

    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.

    • Gap Gen says:

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

    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?
