This contest is now over. We have selected the winners - see if you are one of them towards the bottom of the page.

Guess what time it is! That's right, it's time for another giveaway, and this time we've partnered up with HyperBees to give away 3 Zeemote Bluetooth gaming controllers (~$30 value each), all for downloading and trying out the free version of their very popular Speedx 3D. The game has been out for a while in paid-only form, but this week Hyperbees released a free ad-supported version, which they are now trying to promote. The end result? You get to try a fun new game for free in exchange for a chance to win 1 of 3 Zeemotes.

Speedx 3D is simple, in fact it may look a little too simple from the screenshots, but I assure you that it's quite fun. You race in tunnels and on Tron-like surfaces at various speeds and try stay on course while avoiding obstacles that show up along the way. The game uses tilt controls, which I found excellent - probably the best implementation of tilt controls I've ever experienced - or, alternatively, you can hook up a Wii-resembling wireless Zeemote. If you want to find out more about the Zeemote, have a look at this slide from the company's website:

Now check out what the Zeemote is all about (the cheesy promo version):

And finally, let's finish it off with a demo you actually want to see - Quake III on Android, controlled by a Zeemote:

Now, who is ready for the giveaway?

  • Nexuz-Uno

    I've been paying Speedex3D on my phone since the week I got it. (February 17 2010) I love it and it is by far the best game available.

  • dilatedMIND

    I really thought this game looked lame.... Until I tried it! Even if I don't win, this game was well worth a download!

  • Montgoss

    Not worth the time to enter this contest... Android Central's identical contest only required posting to the forum thread.

    • Coldman

      By all means, don't enter. Raises the chances for all of us, plus it's 3 additional Zeemotes, not the same ones that AC was doing, so your point is moot.

      Not worth the time? HyperBees is promoting a game and giving away free shit. If you don't like the rules, don't enter.

  • The Light

    This game is awesome! Definately a great way to pass time.

  • torstein molland

    Very addictive! If you ask me it's better than angry birds! I have seen this app in the market a lot of times, but never actually downloaded it. Now, i'm unable to put the phone away. Great work! If I don't win the Zeemote, i know that I will at least have another fun game to play when I need to kill some spare time! :) One feature you should add is the possibility for stereoscopic 3d (you know, the one where you cross the eyed to make 3d). Also, it would have been cool with some sort of multiplayer over i.e bluetooth or wifi.
    Thanks for a great game, and thanks for making this contest. If it had not been for it, I would never have taken the time to download SpeedX 3D.

    When i first got it i was kinda indifferent. then after a couple of tries, the tube broke open :O That really blew me away :D
    Awesome game!
    Thnx!
    Shame though, that the non Free Version just removes the Adss

  • Sandy McArthur

    Reminds me a little bit of N2O on the PlayStation 1. With the right music and headphones, this could be similar but portable experience. Maybe allow the player to pick their own techno soundtrack.

  • http://facebook.com/speedx3d Tom from HyperBees

    Hi all, I'm really glad you like the game!

    @Torstein
    3D stereoscopy - right now Speedx supports 3D glasses, go to options -> stereo 3D and select type of glasses you have. It might happen that in the nearest future we will add support for 3D phones like that LG one.
    Multiplayer - we've been thinking about it but it would actually mean remaking the game from the scratch (almost). Multiplayer will be a big thing in Speedx2 coming Q2 this year. Bytestorm, the devs behind Speedx, plan some big changes for the sequel, Tegra, multiplayer, etc.
    Thank you!

  • Randy Khoo

    Weird... The game force closed after i launched the first time and selecting feint...
    Seems ok on the second, except that i get 5 second pauses navigating through the menus...

  • Randy Khoo

    It's running now....
    Damn! It's really smooth gameplay! Great job!

    • Randy Khoo

      the speed is good, very responsive.
      I like the way it calibrates every time it begins the race.
      I've played standard a few times, and it's keeping me holding on to my seat.
      Like the way it generates a randomised map and no two races feel the same!

  • http://notionlovers.com BiggestNotionLover

    This game is really easy to get addicted to. I have spent way too much time cracking out with it on my Notion Ink Adam. It looks great on the tablet screen and the graphics are very fast and smooth. The calibration before playing makes it easy to play no matter which way I orient the tablet. I am really looking forward to even smoother graphics with a Tegra optimized version. Keep up the good work guys!

  • Ilya Dimov

    Wow now that Bluetooth has been enabled this would go lovely with my nook.

  • kaoruAngel

    Sweet game! Like others, I never would have found it if it were not for this contest. Once I got to realizing that accelerometer use isn't necessarily rotating my landscape phone like a steering wheel, but could also work possibly easier by tilting the right or left end of the phone away from me, this game really picked up steam. The first game where accelerometer control really felt natural, intuititive and possibly the most appropriate.

    I do have a relatively speedy device, but still, the style of graphics in this game really scores the most bang for its performance-requiring buck. The graphics are easy to render (and also to program) yet maximally impressive.

    Good job bytestorm.

  • mikeymop

    My friend told me about the game, and I installed it and then read this post and got excited. Having a touch only phone it can get tough doing certain games. This game is really addicting. It's on par with PewPew for taking the most usage time on my phone :D

  • http://facebook.com/speedx3d Tom from HyperBees

    Thanks for your feedback!

    Just to let you know - Speedx was played over 1,000,000 times :) BIG thank you!

    • mikeymop

      I have a group of five friends and we compete during physics class. Poor teacher, not only is he being ignored... he has an iPhone

  • Nexuz-Uno

    So who won? I'm quite curious. :)

  • Abhishek

    M keeping my fingers crossed :)
