A brilliant new initiative which will reward anyone with a Pebble smartwatch and the ability to count to 10 with a free copy of 10 Second Ninja X.
There’s a catch, of course: You need to be able to count to 10 exactly, to within 100th of a second.
10 Second Ninja X is a brilliant, brutal platformer out today on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, currently priced at £4.79 / €5.99 / $5.99 (limited time offer – full price is £7.99 / €9.99 / $9.99).
The 10 Second Ninja X 10 Second Pebble Challenge is available to all Pebble users for free direct from the Pebble App store. Once stored on the watch, the challenge requires users to stop the app’s timer bang on 10 seconds – at which point they are immediately presented with a free Steam key. Users are free to attempt the 10 Second Challenge as many times as they want.
10 Second Ninja X is about knowing your limits. Specifically time limits – as each level needs to be completed within 10 seconds in order to progress. But Four Circle Interactive’s thrilling action platformer hides loads more behind its initial promise, as console and PC owners can discover from today.
The game boasts 60 immaculately designed levels, spread across six rich and varied worlds. Whilst much of the challenge comes from demonstrating the dexterity and reactions necessary to traverse each level – players with real skill will want to complete each quickly.
Like, really quickly. So quickly, in fact, that you’ll laugh at anyone who does it with a second to spare when a more efficient route will do the same with nine seconds remaining. Each level is a puzzle, its hallowed three-star reward only for the genuinely skilled.
“If you don’t know how long 10 seconds is, you’re going to struggle with 10 Second Ninja X,” says Dan Pearce, Four Circle Interactive, “so in a sense, you can consider the Pebble app an entry exam – and a free copy of the game your reward. Of course, for those who want to perfect their skills in game, 10 Second Ninja X is available now with an irresistible 40 per cent off for two weeks – fire up your digital store front now and dive on in. See you on the leaderboards!”
10 Second Ninja X is available now for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
