Spunk and Moxie
Press Release: $1000 Contest

Tilt Studios to hold $1000 launch contest for iOS game Spunk and Moxie

Tilt Studios is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Spunk and Moxie for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch on Feb 21st.  To celebrate the launch Tilt Studios is offering a one thousand dollar bounty to the first person to get all stars on all 30 levels of the game.

To get a star, you need to get all the medals on each level:

  • Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals are given for beating set times.
  • Crystal Medal for getting all the crystals in the level.
  • Key Medal for finding the hidden key in the level.
  • Heart Medal for not taking any damage.
  • Skull Medal for beating the level on hard difficulty.

Spunk and Moxie, despite its casual looks, is a classic gamer’s game at its heart.  Completing the game is a real challenge of skill.

“We hope the contest will help convey this message and allow gamers to give it a serious look,” said Nicolas Coderre, CEO of Tilt Studios. “We expect most dedicated gamers to be able to beat it in about 20 hours. Of course, since our designer can do it in two, it’s possible that a particularly skilled player may be able to complete it more quickly.”
