Valentine’s Contest: Win Preview Builds, Promo Codes, and More!

Since it’s Valentine’s Day, what with it being the day of spreading love around, we at NoDPad have decided to hold a special Valentine’s contest for all of you! In this contest, you can win promo codes to great games such as Trenches, Hook Champ, Comet Racer, Bowman Legends, Silent Swords, Bombardier’s Guild, and more.

But wait! You can even win a demo build to UNRELEASED games like the Chillingo-published Pro Zombie Soccer! See? We do love our readers! You do have to give us some love back though. Here are the rules for the contest.

1. Follow @NoDPad on Twitter.

2. Tweet “Follow @NoDPad – help them get 1,000 followers and win promo codes, games, and unreleased demos!”

3. We’ll contact you via Twitter if you’ve won.

It’s that simple! Just follow us on Twitter, and we’ll choose around 50-100 lucky winners of promo codes, demo builds, and our smattering of Valentine’s day love. This contest will run for a week.

In addition, if we get to 1,000 followers we’ll make it a habit of holding weekly contests.

Good luck, and have fun! Happy Valentine’s Day!

    This almost makes me consider making a Twitter. I would if Twitter wasn’t so…twittery.

    Ugh, yet another tacky Twitter spam contest. You get the free publicity, a bunch of people junk up their feeds, but you aren’t even clear on what the “prizes” will be.

    I like your site, but cheap tricks like this to up your numbers are a huge turn-off for me. I’ll pass on the contest, and unfortunately I think a little less of you now.

    You’ll probably remove this comment but I hope you read it and at least consider what I’m saying. There are likely plenty of others who will just stop coming if you stick with these antics.

    Hey Jindo Fox,

    Thanks for your opinions! We highly value them, and we are very open to constructive criticism. We’re sorry if we have spammed your Twitter feed or any other inconveniences, and it’s definitely not our motive to spam your Twitter feed.

    Our deepest apologies,
    Daniel

    Jindo Fox,

    Thanks for providing your thoughts and notifying me of this. I’ll take it into consideration.

    Best regards,
    Jeff

    Thanks for hearing me out and leaving the comment up — your stock has once again risen in value with me. :-)

    I wish I could tell you the secret of getting a million hits, but all I know is that cheap tricks is NOT the way. You have a good site with lots of active reviews, and assuming you don’t do this to pay the rent, maybe that’s enough?

    These guys make a lot of sense to me:

    That’s good to hear. :)

    We do try our utmost to gain recognition and I guess the new Twitter method that seems to be all the rage really doesn’t appeal to our returning readers. Assuming that you’re one of them, that’s all the proof I need.

    Eh, you live, you learn. I’ll definitely remember this the next time I run something to boost site popularity.

    And thanks for the link – definitely good advice for me to keep in mind.

    Haven’t been back to the site in a while, and when I do come you have yet another awesome contest, and I see you also have gotten rid of the gray boxes with advertise here on them and filled them with advertisements! Looks like the site is progressing nicely XD, and about these twitter contests, I see Jindo Fox’s point, and in no way mean to make him/her angry, but I use twitter for news and facebook for friends, so I don’t really have a problem with you using promocodes as a way to up your hits, as it is the person’s choice to follow you, you do not force them. I believe the over 800 other followers probably agree with me!

    Anyway, Best of Luck with the site :)

    Hey Coops, hope you can make it a habit of coming to the site regularly if you’re interested. We try our best to have people like the site and keep coming back to it. :)

    Good point, but there are those who use Twitter for both – I’ll have to remember this next time and not try to spam people with retweets. Lesson learned.

    Thanks for the support!

    Gonna follow you on Twitter now, don’t care about the promo. ;-)

    Definitely good advice. I’ll bookmark that and keep it in mind, and thanks for the help!

    Your support is much appreciated too. :)
