Tweet for Tat: Review iPhone games on Twitter, win stuff
Tweet to win prizes that money just won't buy
Being a powerful media empire, Pocket Gamer gets all kinds of free stuff landing on its epic-sized doormat. Our gallant leader Chris James sleeps in the corner of the office on a giant bean bag in the shape of a Bluetooth headset, while editor Rob Hearn makes the tea from rare mushrooms grown for Super Mario Bros games.
A tonne of tat
But we're drowning in all this tat*, and want to push some of it off onto you, the punter. So we're launching a new weekly features called 'Tweet for Tat', in which you're invited to spread your own micro-reviews across the Twitterverse of any game found within Pocket Gamer's pages.
The best one each week will get a special prize that money just won't buy.
To Tweet for Tat, choose your game, go to Twitter, enter the text @PocketGamer #PGreview (this is required so we can track the entries) and tell the world about the game in the remaining 100 or so characters. We'll pick a winner each week, and DM you for details on where to send the tat.
Tweets mean prizes
You might have missed last week's Tweet 4 Tat, when we gave away an original Ford Cortina in the shape of Sonic The Hedgehog, but we've got an even better prize for next week: A Beneath A Steel Sky comic signed by Dave Gibbons, Charles Cecil and Tony Warriner!
The Pocket Gamer team has put a few examples together to show you how it's done, and here's the requirements again for submitting your micro-review to Pocket Gamer's Tweet 4 Tat.How to enter Tweet 4 Tat
- Choose a game to review that's already been reviewed on Pocket Gamer.
- Sign in to your Twitter account, and begin your Tweet for Tat review with the following text so we can track it: @PocketGamer #PGreview
- Be clever, pithy, belligerent, amusing, strange or rude (bearing in mind we need to be able to print it) and concise about your chosen game.
- Finish it with a score out of 10, in the format "8/10".

Follow Pocket Gamer on Twitter at twitter.com/pocketgamer to keep up with everything that's going on in the mobile, iPhone, smartphone and handheld gaming world.* In using the word 'tat', we don't mean to disparage the lovely things we get sent. It's just a funny word and alliterates with 'Tweet' - ed
