Yes Sirs and Madams, you read the title correctly.

I am offering a free complete JPN copy of Jack Bros. I have donated a lot to PVB, and also tried to help out folks here when I can.

You need to meet 2 requirements:
1. Gain the "10+ ratings" batch by rating at least 10 commercial or homebrew games or demos.

2. As well, I would like you to make a new contribution to this site. Could be a review, could be a new top high-score, could be a new scan the site doesn't have, could be a monetary donation, ...or could just be a notable VB related picture of, say, your cat playing VB. Your contribution is your choice :)

I will pick the judges.
The contest will last until we reach at least 10 participants. All members new and old will be welcome.


The prize includes 1 complete boxed copy of Jack Bros, with free USPS Priority shipping and delivery confirmation within the USA. "Snail-mail" First class postage will be offered for international members.

A runner up prize will be a loose copy of Nester's Funky Bowling.


So... get to it! Rock on guys n' gals!


EDIT: Rules updated (1st requirement changed)

contest question: if I can submit something random like a picture of a cat playing the VB, could my drawings that are VB-related count as a contribution too? I know you said what to contribute is my choice but I can't draw Chalvo that well!

as for my friends/peers at Planet Virtual Boy; It'd feel awkward to just make a "top 10 best people" list! not to mention, ALL of you (at least I'd hope so) appreciate the Virtual Boy so thats great in my book

and in response to "why do you deserve this game?" ...anything I'd say would sound like Wario! "WA-HA-HA! all 33 VB games will be MINE!" heres something that sounds nicer: ...I'm giving my VB the gift of JACK BROS! (or Nester's Funky Bowling)

more cheesy text: I can show my VB how much I love it with yet another game in my collection... after all, Virtual day is almost here! er, Valentines I mean!

Maybe you should give VB programming another chance?

You will put the game up for auction , I think is better than offering a free game . If we bid to get Jack Bros , you'll donate the maximun bid to PlanetVB . What's your opinion about this? You will open a new topic to start the auction.

20 (or more) ratings? ok *counts how many games I have that I could play* ...I only have 10 games and I'd rather play VB games (this goes for homebrew games too) on the actual hardware and I don't have a Flashboy

(oh well, good luck to everyone else entering this contest!)

Seems like this will force through some ratings on a bunch of games that haven't been properly tested, there's only 22 titles, I guess running them in emulation will give some idea though.

Luckily I already have a one complete JPN Jack Bros but good luck to you other people.

However, as I have been trying out a few new games the last days I can at least add a few ratings. ;-)

Nice initiative anyway even if it's a little odd competition rules.


EDIT: Aha, included are also the homebrews and demos...

Looks like I'm out of the running before I even had my entry completed. I only have 4 games and couldn't even properly rate them atm anyway since I'm still waiting on my virtual boy displays to be delivered after being repaired by TheForce81. I'm actually starting to get kind of nervous that they may have been lost while being shipped as they are taking a really long time to arrive. Anyway, I'll continue with what I was going to submit even though I no longer have a chance as my little project is more then half way done and I think its pretty cool IMO.
