Two Days of Tower Building, Two shots at 200 Swag Bucks
Happy Weekend, Swag Nation!
It’s great to be back. If you weren’t here with us on Wednesday, we played the new, challenging platformer, Temple Glider. If you haven’t tried it yet, definitely give it a shot. It’s a fun test of your skills.
This weekend’s game is a relatively newer favorite among the Game Challenge community so I thought it might be fun to do another challenge on it.
In Tower Builder, you have to use timing and physics to stack blocks as high as possible. Once the tower gets high enough, it begins to wobble so getting the blocks as close to directly on top of each other as you can is a must and it even helps your score! To play Tower Builder, just click your mouse to drop a block. The crane will swing the block back and forth so timing is key.
So what’s this Weekend’s Game Challenge? Build a Tower of 22 blocks or more on Tower Builder and post a link to a screenshot here in the comments. For each of these correctly filled out posts, you will have one entry in a raffle to win 200 Swag Bucks. You may enter as many times as you like with new screenshots of new challenge-meeting scores. One winner will be selected at random from each day of entries and announced in this blog post and on Twitter on Monday. That means, if you enter on Saturday, you can come back Sunday to enter again and be part of a new raffle. If you need an image hosting service, I recommend tinypic.com. The link you want is the URL.
You can also participate via Twitter by tweeting your screenshot and feedback if it applies @Swagbucks, along with your Swag Name and the hashtag #sbgames. You may place each entry both on Twitter and in the comments, but if you win from an entry placed on Twitter, you will win an additional 100 Swag Bucks.
This Weekend’s Challenge also has an optional bonus for those of you who are daring enough. If you are one of the two lucky winners and win with an entry that shows a score of 18,300 or higher, you will win an additional 100 Swag Bucks! That’s quite a challenge!
This weekend’s game was suggested by missmoney87 so I’m hooking her up with 25 Swag Bucks. You can always make suggestions for upcoming Weekend Game Challenges in the comments. Pick a game you’re good at it because it just might get picked!
Playing Tower Builder this time around, I started experimenting with different strategies. Sometimes, I used the sound effects to try to get into a rhythm; other times, I was trying to aim at the top of the stack; and I even started trying to aim to be more lined up with the bottom of the stack. I have no idea which works best. I might be worse at the game now than when I started. Do you guys have a particular strategy you use? Does it help?
I hope you all enjoy this weekend’s challenge. Good luck and have a great weekend!
UPDATE: This weekend’s winners were ardria and katie322 – Congratulations!
