App Giveaway: 50 copies of Vector Conflict: The Siege | webOS Nation

App Giveaway: 50 copies of Vector Conflict: The Siege 189

by Derek Kessler Tue, 24 May 2011 5:38 pm EDT

Visually styled after the classic Atari game Battlezone, Vector Conflict: The Siege is more of a barricade defense game than its visual ancestor. You are placed in a bunker, defending from all sides from wave after wave of attacking drones. You have a primary gun, rocket launcher, EMP chargers, and a nuke or two at your disposal. Because the threat in Vector Conflict comes from all sides, it’s up to your reflexes and instincts to prioritize which enemy drones to wipe out first – especially since not everybody shows up on your radar.

Thankfully, throughout the game you can upgrade your weaponry to better handle the onslaught. Unfortunately, the onslaught also gets amped up – drones are crazy like that. If the name “Vector” didn’t give it away, we’ll tell you know: Vector Conflict is definitely retro in its styling: everything is simple line graphics set on a black background, accompanying by a brooding sci-fi soundtrack.

Contest: We have 50 copies of Vector Conflict: The Siege to give away. Just leave a comment on this post to enter. Contest ends this Sunday at midnight PST. Please only leave one comment, multiple entries won’t count. Promo codes are only valid on carriers serviced by the App Catalog, and users must be running webOS 2.1 or higher with the latest version of the App Catalog.


I'm always in for giveaways.

This would look cool on my new Touchpad or Pre 3!

yea for contests!!!

I likes nuking da dronz; but I also likes savings da monies.

Free, my favorite 4 letter word!

Many, many years ago when I was a younger geek I remember playing Battlezone when it was an arcade game. It was pretty cool for it's time. Nothing would be better than to introduce the game to my kids on my Pre2. Maybe they'll find it more interesting than that bird game.

Ahhhhhh...memories...Atari.. *tear*

Free giveaway? Atari flashback? Yes please!

But there's only 49 people who own the latest devices with 2.0 and up :-p
Counts me out...

I was just looking at this game earlier this week. I'm such a geek for games.

This looks pretty fun.

Woot, I want to win

Looks great, would love to try it out.

I love vector games sooooo much. If I don't win, I'll buy it. :)

Dibs I want in

Nice game sure!!

Damn. Stuck on 1.4.5. Otherwise I'd definitely post a comment...

Can I please still be considered and install it when I get the Pre3 someday?

I was ten when Battlezone came out. I still remember being blown away by the vector graphics. One of the few games that vector really worked well with. The Star Wars (arcade game), of course, being one of the other.

Please pick me! You all have not picked me before but I really am a really nice person!!!!

duh. winning!

Winner Winner?? Looks entertaining :)

Please...take me back to the Atari days! Sign me up please.

É Nóis Na Fita! :-P

Best Regards... B)

I'd love a copy!



Need goodies on my Veer!

Winner = here

So when I win, can I collect it when I upgrade to my Palm Pre3? Or better yet, my Palm Slab?

(Yes, i know the slab doesn't even have a real name or announcement yet, and yes, I know that Palm has gone the way of the dodo's but I firmly believe that from an advertising perspective it's better to visualize a Palm then an HP.)

this looks awesome

Thank You Precentral!

/me * cries and screams and pulls his hair out and drops before the Palm Pre Central Lords and begs for a copy *

I could use a fresh game!

Free game? I'm game.

As a long-time fan of Vector graphics, I am happy to see such a beautiful game on webOS. After all, my Vectrex is starting to show signs of age! ;)
