Competition: Guess the alien, win Sentinel: Mars Defense promos!

On break - check back later!

Winners to date:
drelbs has no trouble with Tribbles
Ziekke didn't get caught up in red tape from the Vogons
GaiaIllusion resisted the urge to Force Choke a Gungan
Moonmist avoided getting replaced by a Skrull
Marioman619 exterminated the Daleks
JCik68 repelled a Zerg rush

What's better than getting one of the UK App Store One Year Anniversary top 30 games for just $0.99? Getting it for free, of course! However, rather than just throwing out some codes, we've decided to have a little fun...

iDevice newcomers might have missed the first Sentinel: Mars Defense, Origin8's original alien-busting tower defense. Here's a quick video rundown:

Aliens are great, aren't they? From humans-but-a-bit-grumpy-and-with-funny-foreheads, to incomprehensible n-dimensional intangible intelligences, you've got to love speculation on the possibilities of extraterrestrial life.

I'm thinking of a fictional (probably...) alien species right now. Post what it is and you win a Sentinel: Mars Defense promotional code.


1. You can ask yes/no questions in this thread, 20 questions style, to narrow it down. No more than 5 questions per post. I'll do my best to answer promptly, but reality may get in the way - even Drones can't hit 'refresh' 24/7. Post a guess whenever you feel like it (just to clarify: guesses count as a question).

2. No more than one code per person. Keep playing, by all means, but if you win multiple times the code will go to the first person who posts the correct answer and hasn't previously won.

3. You are in competition with your fellow posters! If you ask a question that makes the answer obvious but get beaten to the punch posting it, sorry, them's the breaks.

4. This is supposed to be fun. Have fun. That is a rule.

Depending on available time, interest and how smoothly this goes, we could have up to 10 codes up for grabs over the next few days.

Ok, quiz me!

I'll guess Vulcan and ask:

1) Is it bipedal?

2) Is it green?

3) Is it known to eat humans?

4) It is bigger than a bread box?

5) Are they robots?
