July 2014 Alpha Gamer of the Month Challenge

July-2014-Gamer-of-the-month-alpha-waveVideo Game Scoreboard is pleased to announce the July Gamer of the Month Competition for 2014.  For this competition, we have teamed up with the Wikipad team to provide additional prizes for the competition.

The July game challenge is on Alpha Wave. This competition will be open on all Android platforms.  Please see the rules below for full disclosure of the rules.

Alpha Wave is a fast moving shooter-style game, like Asteroids and Space Invaders, that has your ship at the bottom of the screen and you have to move it left and right to destroy the various items raining down on you – whether it be space debris, asteroids, UFOs, weapons firing at you, etc. It can be played on any Android device, including the Wikipad.

For this competition, you can play on either Alpha Wave Lite, which is the free version and limits you to the level we are competing on, or on Alpha Wave, which is the full version of the game.  Other than having other levels available for play, there is no gameplay difference between Alpha Wave Lite or Alpha Wave.  You will be playing on Hard difficulty for Stonewall.

The Rules:

  1. This month’s competition runs from July 1 to August 15. The July winners will be announced once all scores are verified and places tallied.
  2. Players must submit a recording of their high score attempt on Alpha Wave.
  3. Players may compete on the systems listed below. They may ONLY compete on Alpha Wave – Most Points by Death or End of Stonewall. For the purpose of the competition, a combined scoreboard will show the ranks of all players competing together.
  4. Recording rules must be followed. Rules can be found below. Failure to follow the rules disqualifies the entry.
  5. Pausing is not allowed.
  6. Players may submit in any of the ways we accept, however, if you are mailing submissions in, please be sure to have them postmarked no later than August 10, 2014, so we can receive them in time for the August 15 deadline.

The July Alpha Challenge Objective is to see who can achieve by completion of 65 levels or death and destruction of their spaceship  the most points accumulated on the Hard difficulty level for Stonewall.  You can use any and all bonuses earned while playing during that game.  There is no limit on the number of times you can use the Weapon’s Hyper Ability or the Singularity bomb.

To remind everyone, the screen you are playing on must be visible at all times while you are playing the game.  You can watch this video example from John Pompa which shows how he recorded Fix It Felix.  The same would apply here.

Please note:  You must show boot up of your Android Device from turning it on and the load screen to showing boot up of the game, level selection, etc. for it to be a valid score.  Once you show this, as long as you don’t stop recording, you may record as many attempts as you like.  However, if you stop recording, you must re-show the bootup process.  If you record multiple attempts, please remember to make a note of where your record attempt begins after the bootup sequence.

  • If there is an Android Device you want to compete on and it’s not listed, please message us.
