[CONTEST] Gemmed! - The longest survivors will win!

CONTEST IS OVER!

Get ready for our 2nd Gemmed! contest!

You need to have the latest update (v1.6) to participate.


Start date: May 7th, 2009 11.59pm PST
End date: May 11th, 2009 11.59pm PST

Prize: The first winner will receive $20, the rest of the winners will each receive $10 iTunes gift card (or equivalent amount through paypal for non USA accounts)

How to win: Play the Survival Mode and try to survive as long as possible! It doesn't matter what level you reach, it's all about the time! In case of a tie, the one with the highest score will win.

Eligibility: All participants must take a screenshot of the end game screen and submit their scores to the online high score board after the game ends. Then please post your scores here along with the screenshot, and tell us your player name. In some cases we might need additional verification which would be done through email/pm communication. One person(or device ID) can win only one prize!

How many winners: We'll have at least 2 winners for sure. However, the total number of winners will depend on the total number of participants. For every 10 additional participants, there will be a winner:

0-20 participants: 2 winners
20-30 participants: 3 winners
30-40 participants: 4 winners
and so on..


Winners will be announced on this thread soon after the contest ends.

Feel free to ask me if you have any other questions.

39 minutes is very good, especially if it was your first try!

lol is it really? I submitted first on the other contest with a high level of like 45 or something and you said that was 'very good' too. :P
Just hope this score actually holds up. What's your highest record, MuN?

Also, have you ever considered ridding of the bottom exit doors? These doors are worse than the slime, rocks, cages, and ice and run the clock down quite a bit when you can't get that one color gem down that you need.

Thanks for the high score submission stuff in the update, good thing because right when I finished, it told me an internet connect was required.

Fantastic! I just played Survival earlier (got 7th overall, but now down to 9th). It was an absolute BLAST! I really like this new mode and it's just perfect for a contest.
