Who wants a free Galaxy Nexus? You do? We thought so, and we've one to give away - CDMA or GSM, it's winner's choice this time.

Before we get into the giveaway details, though, we want to give some love to the guys at BitHack, without whom this giveaway wouldn't be possible. BitHack is the dev team behind the game Apparatus, a title that you've probably heard quite a few times 'round here at Android Police.

This contest is now over. Here is our winner, selected by BitHack from almost 2,500 comments:
  • Ben Warren with this 1-line review: "The only game I've played where I can quite happily spend 3 hours trying to come up with the most ludicrously complex way to move a ball an inch and a half to the left."

Congratulations - you will be contacted for your information in the near future!

Everyone else - keep participating and stay tuned to Android Police so that you don't miss our upcoming giveaway announcements. You can follow AP on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and RSS.

Sounds easy, right? Not so much - this one is the epitome of easy to learn, difficult to master. Roll that beautiful gameplay footage!

That's just a small sample of what you get from Apparatus, too - it's just been updated for Christmas.
