Promo code blowout for FLIP (Full Version)! Secret code revealed!

FLIP is a puzzle game containing three game modes, two of which contain nearly 200 brain-busting puzzles. The other mode, standard mode, contains virtually unlimited play and replay value. All modes use the motion sensors of the iPhone as a main input method – you literally flip your iPhone to solve puzzles. Standard mode, a unique but more traditional game style, also uses the touch screen.


To get a promo code, follow instructions below:

We have waited patiently for someone to figure out the FLIP secret code and now one FLIP player, using our riddle (below), has discovered the hidden secret! His name is cyprianoman on YouTube and Digg and he has put up a video on Digg.

We will send you a promo code if you do these simply things:

1) Digg cyprianoman’s article on Digg: http://digg.com/apple/Drawing_Contra...Reveals_Secret


2) Email us your Digg username to: info@ebattalion.com

3) We will email you back the promo code for the full version FLIP – we will also keep on file for future promo codes.


Riddle (currently 5 down on Google list):

Best secret added to a game ever.

I think just about anyone who owned a NES in the late 80's and 90's knows the Contra code by heart.

I love that you guys added that into the game and even left a riddle about it!

I only wish I had stumbled across that myself. ^ ^

Hahahaha! It's the Konami Code. I'm sure it's been wikipedia-fied, because it works on several other games besides Contra. Heck, you needed it without a Game Genie!

I fulfilled the requirements of the contest (a bit slow from my iPhone), I will await a code. I'm doubtful that there are any however as there were 92 diggs when I dugg it!

Update: man these guys are fast/good, got a return email within about 15 minutes, thanks eBattalion!

Haha, if you try the code in any of the sub-versions, such as Puzzle Flip, you'll get a message when you do the code.

It makes reference of the message seen in Mario games.

Oh magical Finger, you have discovered the FLIP secret!

Thank you Finger! But our revelation is in another version!

If you download the full version, basically for the price of a coffee, you will get nearly 100 more puzzles with speed mode and virtually unlimited play and replay value with standard mode.

Would you like to download the full version now?

"Paying" people to digg articles up or offering compensation for digging articles is against the TOS...keep doing this if you want to get banned. You might want to take this post down.
