Free Stuff Friday - Comic Jumper (x2)

| 114 Comments

Comic JumperComic Jumper This week we have not one but two copies of Comic Jumper for Xbox Live Arcade, freshly reviewed in Busy Gamer Podcast 51 (watch for our print review next week!). The game is typical Twisted Pixel: offbeat story and humor and some hilarious music (which we also featured in the podcast and ringtones).

Comic Jumper casts you as has-been hero Captain Smiley who makes guest appearances in Conan-esque fantasy, '60s Silver Age and black-and-white manga dripping in schoolgirls and unicorn-fueled rainbows. Action ranges from platform shooter to rail shooter and brawler. It's a challenging blend that will set you back $15 - unless you win it for free!

Here's how to enter and boost your odds to win (essentially up to 8 chances with bonus entries and two copies of the game up for grabs):

  1. Enter a comment here, as usual. That's all you really NEED to do. 
  2. Tweet the following on Twitter: Win #ComicJumper at Busy Gamer News, celebrating a year of the Busy Gamer Podcast! RT + enter here: http://bit.ly/d16hCk #bgnfsf
  3. Review (or re-review) our Busy Gamer Podcast on iTunes
  4. Review (or re-review) the Best of Busy Gamer Podcast on iTunes. This is a short audio highlights feed with our reviews, audio tours and other timeless bits.

If you do 2, 3 and/or 4 (and why wouldn't you?), you do need to let us know your Twitter/iTunes name(s) in your comment so we can find, verify and include your bonus entries in the drawing and match them up to contact you if one of them wins. If we can't easily tell who you are on Twitter and/or iTunes, the bonus entry is disqualified.

You DO have to enter a comment here and follow the other rules to be eligible. Here's how to enter:

Simply post a comment on this page. (You can do the other things listed above if you want to earn some extra chances to win.) Say whatever is on your mind as long as it's not an ad or profane. Be sure to read the Sweepstakes Rules to ensure you are eligible to win and don't get disqualified by double-posting or forgetting to provide an e-mail address.

NOTE: If you play for extra chances on Twitter or by posting podcast reviews on iTunes, you still have to enter here AND let us know your Twitter and/or iTunes names so we can match you up. iTunes ratings alone do not count since we can't see who posted them, so add or update a comment! (If you already posted an iTunes review, you can still update your review once a week for a bonus entry in each week's giveaway. Just log in to iTunes and click Write a Review; it should load your existing review and let you modify it. Check to ensure that it appears on top with the new date.)

You may also want to white list this domain; we've had MANY would-be winners lose out because they never responded to their prize notification! If you use TypeKey/TypePad, be sure your e-mail address will be shared. No e-mail address, no prize. (Don't worry, no one else will see it - and we'll only use it to contact you if you win.)

Note that unless you're an authenticated poster who has been active on the site and marked as trusted, your comment will NOT appear immediately. It will go into a queue for me to approve, which I'll do several times a day (except the first weekend, where comments may not be approved until sometime late on Sunday). Do NOT double-post. We'll extend the entry period for this until 5:01 p.m. Pacific Time on Wednesday, October 20 to ensure you have plenty of time to enter and verify your entry was posted.

We also sometimes give away unannounced Instant Win prizes and podcast extras. Here are a few tips since this can happen at any time. Check our Busy Gamer Podcast on Sundays for possible hints about what's coming. Follow Gamewatcher on Twitter. Before we post the next Free Stuff Bonus - Instant Win, we'll give you a fair warning tweet. 2) Subscribe to our RSS feed and set it to check for updates frequently.

We continue to stock up on cool goodies for Free Stuff Friday - and we will keep doing so as long as there's enough response, even if we continue to lose money on this site. So tell your friends about this! Hey, if we get bigger, so will the prizes that YOU could win! While you're at it, post comments wherever you see something interesting. Also, if you get a game code you don't need or have some other cool game-related prize you want to donate, we'd be very grateful (we pay for most of this stuff ourselves!).

Tweeted the contest, reviewed both podcasts as chakantfm. If you can't tell, I'm really hoping to win this one. I love games with good humor, and your review last week and playing the demo convinced me this is a game to get.

2.

I played the demo, and it's not bad, other than some of the dialog. Probably not something I would buy, but I would certainly play it for free.

3.

I tweeted about this at @randomduded12

Already reviewed both podcasts on Itunes as Obsidianspire or something very close to that. :)
