‘Ro’ Your Way to $500 Smackaroos

ro_contest2ro_contest1

So you think you’re smarter than a fifth grader puzzle genius? Then its time to prove it and give yourself the chance to win $500 cash, courtesy of Roamular, the fine folks behind Ro. If you’ll recall from our review of the game, we found Ro to be one of the more unique puzzlers at the App Store and one that will be sure to give your brain a workout.

The objective of the contest is simple really (though successfully completing it maybe a different story). You must solve the Expert 1 level in 30 moves or less and be able to prove it via a Youtube or Vimeo video. The player with the fewest number of moves will take home the $500 prize  (not a bad paycheck for just showing off your puzzle-solvin’  skills eh?) The contest closes on June 30th, so there’s still plenty of time to master the game if you have yet to get your ‘Ro’ on.  All the juicy contest details can be found after the break and good luck to all!
