Today we’ve got a brand new giveaway of a Game Pack including an ASUS Transformer Prime quad-core Android tablet in celebration of NVIDIA‘s newest Tegra Zone game “Dark Meadow: The Pact.” This game is developed by Phosphor Studios and optimized for the Tegra 3 processor gaming environment in collaboration with NVIDIA, and its release this week (for free!) is being celebrated by SlashGear and Android Community with gear that you will not want to miss. We’ve also got a hands-on review of this game in its first form for you to peek at before you go through with the full download on your brand new tablet – check it out!
The game you’re looking at here is one chosen by NVIDIA and Phosphor Games to help show the Tegra 3′s impact on the mobile gaming space – in fact, at the moment you’re only going to be able to play this game for Android on a device with a Tegra 3 processor because of the intense graphics and awesome gameplay involved inside. NVIDIA’s quad-core 4-PLUS-1 technology embedded in the Transformer Prime will bring you new elements never before seen in the game’s short history: “detailed enhancements such as higher polygon count, animated textures, water effects and dynamic particle effects” amongst other elements to be sure. You can download the game and play it through completely for free via the NVIDIA Tegra Zone and the Google Play App Store starting this week!
UPDATE: We’ve found our winner! His name is John Walker and he wrote this amazing poem for the win!
“I would love an Asus Transformer Prime tab from Slashgear
Using it for all of the things I love, don’t you fear
I will be playing games on it, that’s no doubt
And even if I don’t win it, I won’t pout
I will use it for my work with Wounded Warriors charity
and steal some of my neighbor’s wifi, but only sparingly
I’ll use it for Twitter and Facebook and maybe eMail
But one thing’s for sure, the quad-core processor will never fail
If my fingers get tired, I’ll have the keyboard dock
To rest it on my lap and type away at my portfolio and stock
I’ll make sure to share the tab with my little brother
And even design a birthday card with photoshop for my mother
Maybe I’ll keep updated on Android news, that would be cool
I could even research my thesis paper by my outdoor pool
I’ll keep all of my photos organized and post with on Instagram
Or maybe use the photos to keep in touch across the country with my fans
My fans from my automotive blogging sites I post on
And use WordPress on the tab, writing English only, no Klingon
Well, this poem is over, but my love for the Transformer Prime
It will remain forever, because of its power and beautiful design.”
