Burrito’s Revenge

Posted by on Wed, November 28th, 2012 at 9:00 am

Happy, happy Wednesday, Swag Nation! I hope you all had a great weekend. I know those of you that participated in the Weekend Game Challenge seemed to have a fun time with that. I did too and I was really happy to see so many comments about how much you enjoyed your weekend of launching and upgrading Burrito. So much so, that if you enjoyed that, you should be pretty excited about today’s game challenge and chance to win 100 Swag Bucks.

Oh, Burrito Bison…
Shall I compare thee to a Summer’s day?
Thou art more burly and more squashsome.
Your undies shoot fire and smash you through gummies,
And Summer doesn’t body slam candy for cash.

I love Burrito Bison…  You love Burrito Bison…  What do ya say we play the sequel, Burrito Bison Revenge!?

I could tell you all about what bring Burrito back to the candy world… I could tell you all about how the game is longer and has much more to do, more doors to break, more upgrades to buy, more opponents to face… I could tell you all about whether or not he ever successfully completes his trip to the store. Or you could just get playing and find out for yourselves.

If you’ve never played Burrito Bison, I do recommend that you play through it first just because it’s fun and a much better introduction to Burrito Bison Revenge. The gameplay is mostly the same. Just click your mouse or press the space bar to launch Burrito when the meter is closest to the highlighted line to launch Burrito as far as possible and click or hit the space bar again midflight to use his rocket powered undies to bring him down with more speed.

So what’s today’s challenge? Beat my poem about Burrito Bison Revenge! Seriously.

In order to be eligible for 100 Swag Bucks, post your poem about Burrito, one of his adversaries, or how you feel about the sequel here in the comments below. You may post as many poems as you like, but they must all be different. Keep in mind that just like with other challenges, three winners will be selected at random so you don’t have to be an amazing writer to win. In order to be eligible to win 200 Swag Bucks, tweet your poem @Swagbucks along with your Swag Name and the hashtag #sbgames.

Lastly, in the spirit of the game challenge, in order to be eligible for 25 extra Swag Bucks, along with your poem, include a link to a screenshot (http://blog.swagbucks.com/2011/10/screenshot-tutorial.html) that proves you made it outside the arena in Burrito Bison Revenge. If you need an image hosting service, I recommend postimage.org because it’s quick and simple, but any service will do so long as you can link to it in your entry. Winners will be announced in this blog post and on Twitter tomorrow.

Oh, Burrito Bison…
How do we love thee? Let the Swag Nation count the ways…

Update: This week’s winners were kspark97, swimfit123, and karatefr0g – Congratulations!
