[CONTEST]Gemmed!..Top 5 will win iTunes Gift Cards!

<CONTEST IS OVER>

Hello Everyone!

Now that we have a sale going on ($0.99), and a recent update is out, we'd like to have small contest! We are planning on having these with the release of future updates. We are announcing this contest only on TA to thank everyone for their support.

Start date: April 5th, 2009 3pm PST
End date: April 11th, 2009 11.59pm PST

Prize: Each winner will receive $10 iTunes gift card.

How to win:
Play Gemmed! version 1.41 (if the update 1.5 is approved and available before the contest ends, please wait until the contest is over before you update to be eligible. This contest is only for version 1.41 - as 1.5 is a little bit easier) and try to reach the highest level (as high as you can) before the game is over. We'll reward top 5 players who reach the highest level among all the participants on TA community. If two players have the same level, the one with the highest score will win.

Eligibility: All participants must submit their scores to the online high score board after the game ends. Then please post your scores here (preferably along with a screenshot) and tell us your player name. You can also PM or email us.Then we'll verify that it's really you (by comparing a few things through email communication). One person can win only one prize!

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

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

Not going to bother with this... I hate when devs bribe people to buy their games. I can see doing this with the lite version to entice people to buy the game, but the full version? That's low... good luck to everyone anyway...

Well, I already own this game, so I don't feel compelled to buy it because of the contest. Instead, I feel like I want to play it. I forgot how fun it was.

umm..we are not bribing anyone. The contest is open to all the players who have the game already. Not just people who buy it now. There is no "if you buy" condition.

BTW, this contest would be meaningless with the lite version. It might apply to other games, but not Gemmed! lite.

How is that "low"? Its just a marketing scheme. Just like when McDonalds or BK gives toys with the disgusting food that they sell. It entices you to buy it, thats not "low". Fast food bribes with toys, developers bribe with contests that YOU can win something from.

hmm..you can't use gift cards in UK? I thought gift cards could be used at all itunes stores worldwide. We can find another way if that's the case. I'll look for the rules.
