Fan of the Week

Mon, Apr 30, 2012

Competitions, General News

We were sitting around chatting about the finer points of our community when someone at the back of the room shouted forth, “why can’t we reward them?”

Some murmurs of agreement and impressed expressions were shared among us, thinking of the possibilities. What do we reward them with? Who gets rewarded? Just who was that fellow who hollered?

After some discussion we’ve come up with a way to reward our awesome fans (you) for showing how much you like our games.  Each week we will have a Fan of the Week competition allowing you to win some awesome Ninja Kiwi merchandise. You might want to draw a picture, write a story, make a video, create a costume or sculpt a… sculpture.  Maybe you have an awesome idea for one of our games. Whatever you want, as long as we can see it or hear it.

We’ll go through all the entries and reward the awesomeness and pick some of the more outstanding examples to show each week.

So pull out your pen, pencil, paintbrush, sewing machine or chisel – kids, please ask your parents before hewing your vision into stone –  and create something that shows us how much you like our games.

We will have a blog post every week showing some of our favourites. These will go up Monday/Tuesday depending on your time zone so check in to see if you get your entry featured. The cut off time will be each weekend, but if you miss it don’t worry ’cause we’ll still look at it and your entry can go in the next week.

Email Fan of the Week entries to fotw@ninjakiwi.com. Make the subject “Your Name – Fan of the Week”

You must include the following in your entry:

Full Name:

Age:

Mailing Address:

Your choice of prize if you win (pick between, t-shirt (tell us your size), 100 NK Coins, or a Mouse Pad):

Name to credit (everyone sees this, your full name is for mailing):

  2. Kao Ninjaratzu Says:

    Wow! This is the surprise! This looks like a really great way to get the community thriving even further! Well, better get out that pencil and see what I can do!

  3. Neo Wolf Says:

    Say, we could do anything?
    Like, say, a fan fiction for SAS3/BTD5?
    (delete other comment please)

  4. Aaron Says:

    Your other comment was exactly the same…

    But yes, anything.

  5. Tosh Says:

    A SAS3/BTD5 crossover fanfic? Hmm….

  6. Neo Wolf Says:

    Sweet, thanks for the response!
    And thanks for that idea, Tosh! xD I don’t think zombies would mix well in a child-friendly game, though.
    (yes, the comment was the same, but my name… haha, sorry :x )

  7. rgmandratpm Says:

    Sounds like a cool idea…good luck to all the people that enter! (including myself lol)

  8. Neo Wolf Says:

    Any kind of rating preferable? E.G. “PG-13, PG, G” etc.

    Because I don’t think SAS appeals to children… or, at least, their parents.

  9. Aaron Says:

    PG-13 is OK.

  10. Chuckmuffin26 Says:

    I love the idea. It sounds really cool!

  11. houfuyan1212 Says:

    Dear Ninja Kiwi. Can i draw something with no colors please respond. Thank you. :)

  15. aroveruser Says:

    what if you make a remake of sas2 (because it is the best map design) and make it so you play against bloons, bfb, and moabs (and maybe zomgs) as the zombies and the player is the monkey. also make it 11 levels where level 11 lets you play as the kiwi.

  16. Aaron Says:

    Raffy: Yes, any email address is fine.

    Alexthe9995loler: Anything you want.

  17. Mike Says:

  30. Me Bender Says:

    BTD5 Tower Idea: Monkey Flamethrower. Shoots flame at a rapid rate. Each blast of fire can pop a layer of bloons every 3 seconds for 9 seconds, and can pop any bloon type. Doesn’t attack MOAB class Bloons. $2k

    Upgrade 1-0 = Mega Blast: Longer blast radius and more popping power. $900

    Upgrade 1-1 = Powerful Burn: Pops a layer of bloons every 2 seconds for 10 seconds. $1100

    Upgrade 2-1 = Giga Blast: Even longer blast radius and even more popping power! $2500

    Upgrade 2-2 = Pyroblmonkiac: Pops a layer of bloons every second for 20 seconds and can attack MOAB class bloons! $3500

    Upgrade 3-2 = Torching Fury: Extreme heat slows down anything that comes near the Flamethrower, and increases attack range and speed by 10% each! $6k

    Upgrade 2-3 = Plasmatic Ash: Bloons popped after burning might (by a 25% chance) emit a pile of plasmatic ash that can pop 5 more bloons! $3k

    Tier 4 Upgrades are Unlocked at Rank 55.

    Upgrade 4-2 = Viral Flame: burned bloons that touch non-burned bloons will burn them, spreading the fire like a virus! $9k

    Upgrade 2-4 = Flaming Madness Ability: Burns all bloons on the screen for 2 minutes. $7k

  31. LTK23 Says:

    Ninja Kiwi should make a special agent called a blaster shark. He would have a grenade launcher with burny stuff, and he would completely WHOOPITATE MOAB-class bloons. He’d have to be pretty expensive, though.They could also make a daily challenge called “Get your priorities straight”, in which you must beat Monkey Lane on medium using towers that have no priority settings. (Tack shooters, Mortars, Aces, Dartling guns, Ice towers, Farms, Villages (3,4), Spike factories) Start with $1,000. $60 reward.
    Daily challenge idea. Blast those BLOONS!
    Beat the rink on hard with explosive towers (Bomb Towers, Mortars, Aces, Dartling guns(2,4), Ninjas(2,4), Apprentices(0,4), Spike factories(4,2), and Buccaneers(2,4). Pineapples are included.
    Also, special mission: Blind Spots: Left side towers see ONLY up and down; right side towers see ONLY left and right. Beat Magma Mountain medium. $500 reward
    Get rich quick: Start with $5,000 and beat Monkey Lane on hard. The twist: you cannot get ANY money after round 50, even from farms and Tier 4 snipers. $750 reward

  32. Special K Says:

    So…if it’s a fanfic or something, should we post a link to it here?

  33. Rohan Says:

    Congrats FotW announcement on Ninjakiwi for 1000 views

  34. the stig Says:

    Btd5 idea.

    They should make a special mission where all your towers only target the LAST. That would be heaps awesome.
