Deeper in the Ocean for 100 Swag Bucks

Happy Wednesday, Swag Nation!

It’s great to be back to another Wednesday Game Challenge and especially great to be back being able to play a new game! We’ll get to that in a second but I want to thank those of you who were here for the Weekend Game Challenge who commented to give me some pointers on word games. I especially liked Btbeth’s idea of challenging yourself to only make words from specific themes like gardening. Not a bad way to exercise your brain and earn 10 SB each day.

Today’s challenge is on our new game, Deeper in the Ocean.

In Deeper in the Ocean, you use the arrow keys to guide a diver as deep as possible before oxygen runs out or you lose all three of your lives. In your way are sharks, eels, spikes and many levels of challenging terrain you must navigate around in order to be successful. You can add to your score by stopping at treasure chests and add to your oxygen by stopping at oxygen pumps. A helpful tip is that while it can be counter productive, you may sometimes need to make your way upward, toward the surface in order to get around obstacles.

So what’s today’s challenge? Get a score of 2500 or higher in Deeper in the Ocean and post a link to a screenshot of your score in the comments. For each of these correctly filled out posts you make, you will have one entry in a raffle to win 100 Swag Bucks. You may enter as many times as you like with new screenshots showing different challenge-meeting scores. You may wish to protect your efforts by adding your Swag Name to it in a paint program. If you need an image hosting service, I recommend because it’s quick and easy. Three winners will be selected at random from all of today’s entries and announced in this blog post and on Twitter on Thursday.

You can also participate via Twitter by tweeting your screenshot @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.

So what do you think of our new game, Deeper in the Ocean? Personally, I find it pretty challenging and it brings me back to my NES days a bit. Do you stop to get the treasure chests or just skip?

Good luck and have fun!

Update: This week’s winners were wsd11, katie322, and shelilah – Congratulations!
