Holiday weekend giveaway: Ninja pack!


Memorial Day: in the US, this is the holiday where we honor the service of our brave men and women in uniform who have given their all in the defense of our nation. Also, we have fireworks, attend barbecues and often go to the beach. Viva America!

We know that TUAW readers love three-day weekends almost as much as they love free swag, so we thought "Why not combine the two?" We'll be posting giveaways all weekend long to help you get set up for summertime.

Our first pack of goodies comes courtesy of Shawnimals and Venan Entertainment, who are the folks behind the new $1.99 Ninjatown:Trees of Doom game for iPhone.

N:ToD is another entry in the 'climb as far/run as far as you can' genre, which includes such classics as Canabalt and Doodle Jump. You control an adorable little ninja, who climbs skyward by jumping between two trees while avoiding hazards and collecting power-ups.

Like most games in this particular bucket, it's fine entertainment for those brief downtimes when you're standing in line or waiting for a train. You can share your achievements in tree-climbing with the rest of the world via the Plus+ network or directly on Facebook and Twitter.

Our prize pack includes a pile of ninja goodies, including:

  • Geeky Ninja plush
  • Adventure of Wee Ninja comic book
  • Ninjatown Micro Plush series 2 (2 pcs)
  • Ninjatown Zipper Charms series 1 (2 pcs)
  • Wee Ninja sticker
  • Ninjatown 1-inch buttons (2 pcs)
  • Miscellaneous stickers
