Gotta Keep ‘em Separated for 100 Swag Bucks

Posted by on Wed, January 30th, 2013 at 9:00 am

Happy Wednesday, Swag Nation!

It’s that time again… Time for another fun new game and a new chance to win 100 Swag Bucks! Lately, we’ve been playing some pretty complex games on Wednesdays so today’s challenge game is much more along the lines of what we played for the Weekend Game Challenge, just a little less math and a little more Simon Says.

In Ball Separation, well…  you separate balls.

Balls of different colors move and ricochet off the walls wildly and it’s your job to separate them by color, matching the color of the balls to the color of the game area. Do this by using your mouse to control the center divider and move the gap to only allow certain balls to change zones.

Simple, right? It is, but there is a time limit. Get through each level as quickly as possible for the best score. Each level offers more balls, making it tougher and tougher to advance. Run out of time and the game is up.

So what’s today’s challenge? Get to level 3 of Ball Separation and post a link to a screenshot of your score in the comments along with a better name for the game than Ball Separation. 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 scores. You may wish to protect your screenshots by adding your Swag Name to it in a paint program. If you need an image hosting service, I recommend tinypic.com 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.

For an added challenge, if your screenshot shows that you beat my score of 14506 and you’re one of the lucky winners, you’ll get an additional 50 Swag Bucks.

Maybe Ball Separation doesn’t have the best name, but other than that, what do you guys think of it? I’ll admit after a while, part of the challenge for me becomes not getting confused about which color I’m allowing to pass. Because of that, I find it helpful to try to focus on one at a time, wherever it may be.

If you have suggestions for upcoming game challenges or any other feedback, as always, you can leave them in the comments. Good luck and have fun!
