First to Beat Upcoming Game Spunk & Moxie Gets $1,000

    Here’s something you don’t see every day: Tilt Studios will pay $1,000 to the first person to beat their upcoming platformer Spunk & Moxie when it launches on iOS. The game will be released in two weeks, but you can watch the trailer below.

    Spunk & Moxie is an auto-running platformer that stars an energetic blob. All you need to do is tap the screen to make him jump but, judging by the trailer, there’s a lot more to it than that. Power-ups turn him different colors and let him do things like dash forward and break through spikes. The game has online leaderboards, ghost races, and unlockable characters like the stars of Spelunky and Super Meat Boy.

    But back to that $1,000 prize. The developers say it takes the average gamer about 20 hours to complete the game, but one of their designers can do it in two. So start working on your reflexes, and look for Spunk & Moxie to land on the App Store on February 21.
