The ever-mysterious Gamer X is throwing down the gauntlet once again to the Pocket Gamer community. This time, however, there's a twist. Or three.

The anonymous ultra-gamer here at PG has picked the brutally unforgiving Impossible Road for his / her next challenge.

Now, in the last few Gamer X competitions we've let our champion set the target before asking for your submissions. This time around, though, you've got a chance to get in there first with your top scores.

Impossible is nothing

Want to enter for prizes and Internet Fameā„¢? Of course you do!

And all you need to do to enter this amazing competition is the following...

  • Add 'Pocket Gamer X' as a Friend on Game Center.
  • Fire up Impossible Road (go grab a copy if you don't already have it) and post the best score you can.
  • Leave a comment at the bottom of this page with your Game Center ID and your score.

In a statement delivered by carrier pigeon, Gamer X said: "Impossible Road is a REAL challenge, for REAL gamers. And because you can't buy your way to victory with in-app purchases here, you'll need REAL skill. Which means I've got this one in the bag."

Maybe you'd like to prove Gamer X wrong. If so, leave your high score and your Game Center username in the comments section below.

Updated on June 7th, at 14:09: That's it!! We've just called time on our Impossible Road Gamer X competition.

And though a fair number of people have had a stab at beating Bhavuk Jain's insane high score from a few days ago, none has succeeded.

In very much a case of 'as you were', then, the mighty trio of Bhavuk, Matthew, and Nassir have finished in first, second, and third places, respectively.

  • Bhavuk Jain - 525
  • Matthew Rossman - 344
  • Nassir Taha - 296

Congratulations to our winners, and thanks to everyone else for playing.

Gamer X will return soon. Very soon.

*By the way, could all of the winners please send an email to Gamer X's personal account with a screenshot of their Game Center ID as proof of entry.

Updated on June 5th, at 13:00: Considering Impossible Road is such a tricky game of skill, colour us impressed by the mightily big scores already posted by our Game Center community.

If you wanna know who our Top 3 Impossible Road players are at the moment, though, check out the leaderboard just below.

  • Bhavuk Jain - 525
  • Matthew Rossman - 344
  • Nassir Taha - 296

Remember that you've only got until this Friday to best these high scores. Those fantastic prizes aren't going to just be handed on a plate to you.

Remember, too, that you ABSOLUTELY MUST leave your top score and Game Center ID in the comments section below to formally enter this competition.

Good luck!!

As mentioned earlier, we have some prizes to give away for the three best Impossible Road scores we receive.

And those prizes are...

  • 1st prize - An Impossible Road signed art print, T-shirt, and stress ball.
  • 2nd prize - An Impossible Road T-shirt and stress ball.

These are exclusive, money-can't-buy prizes for which any fan of the game would punch his gran. You're so mean to your poor gran, you really are.
