The Great Contest iPhone app from Davilad Investments puts your gaming skills to work! Compete against other users top scores and enter contests to win swank prizes, like a 50 inch flat screen television, a PlayStation 3, or even cold hard cash.
There’s even a way to win without spending one red cent. Any of this sound appealing? We thought it might. Tune in to our iPhone app review for all the details on how to score the swag.
Concept & Gameplay:
After completing a brief registration for The Great Contest iPhone app and sorting out a subscription (more about that later) you can choose from a list of active contests to compete in. The day I registered the contest was for a 50 inch HD TV from Samsung.
Once you choose a contest you’ll have five chances to play the contest game. In my case it was a helicopter classic with touch controls. Having multiple chances to earn a good score is more than fair, so we all have a sporting chance.
If your score ranks in the top 50 percent of scores you earn entries into a drawing for the prize. So the better you are, the more likely that you’ll be cashing in.
There are not a ton of contests active at any given time. At the time of review there was only one contest for me to try my hand at, but the Prize Diary is full of juicy upcoming contests sure to keep you coming back.
If you want more there is a perpetual “Dummy Contest” game to play as much as you’d like. It’s always good to keep your skills sharp. You never know what you might win.
The sweet contests featured in The Great Contest iPhone app give it a wide range of appeal. In fact the prizes are so desirable that is extremely tempting and inviting to get in on the action!
A simple user interface and clearly classic games are easy to navigate and use. Everything about this app works well. I have no functionality complaints.
To get any real enjoyment out of this game you must either purchase a monthly subscription for 50p (that’s about a buck) or spend some quality time with the Tapjoy offer wall downloading apps you maynever want or use.
Considering the high stakes, that’s a pretty square deal. You put in a little effort or make a minimal contribution, and earn an entire month of contest glory.
There are also constant plugs to try to get you to spread the word about the game or visit The Great Contest Facebook page. What can I say? This app means business.
Is winning a state of the art audio system worth downloading a couple of apps you’ll never look at again? You betcha. Give The Great Contest iPhone app a shot. You have nothing to lose and, potentially, a whole lot to gain.
The Great Contest iPhone app requires iOS 3.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
