Beach Buggy Blitz Bonanza Giveaway

I have good news and bad news.

First, the bad news:  Apple has asked us to remove the "Redeem Code" feature from Beach Buggy Blitz, which means we won't be able to give away coin pack codes to iPhone and iPad players in the future.  Oh No's!

Now the good news!  We decided to have one last massive prize blowout before the iOS update comes through, and give away 40 coin pack codes to our fans!  Plus, oh yeah:  20 Beach Buggy Blitz T-Shirts*!  This is our biggest giveaway yet, and all you have to do is enter below! 

This contest and the codes are valid for EVERYONE:  iOS, Android, BlackBerry10, everyone!

Giveaway starts at midnight tonight, and ends on February 25, 2014, at 11:59 pm PST.

Beach Buggy Blitz hits 10M on Android, time to give some stuff away!

10,000,000 is a big number.  Like, if you started counting from one right now and kept going til you hit 10,000,000, I'm pretty sure you would get bored or hungry and give up way before you got there.

As game designers, when we make a new game and release it to the wilds, we're hoping that somebody out there will like it.  If a few thousand people like it, that makes us feel good.  If a million people like it, we're like, "Woah!"  

Well today Beach Buggy Blitz was downloaded for the 10,000,000th time on Google Play.  We don't even know what to think about that, except to say, "Thanks!"

So by way of saying "Thanks!", we're going to give away some stuff!  Specifically, this stuff:

  • Grand Prize (5 Winners)
    Beach Buggy Blitz T Shirt* AND a code for 100K Coins in BBB
  • Awesome Prize (10 Winners)
    Code for 100K Coins in BBB
  • Super Prize (20 Winners)
