    [​IMG] GBAtemp Tempmas Mini-Competition #9
    Quick Quiz!

    Yesterday's Competition Winner: Prophet! Congratulations Prophet! Your awe inspiring text almost brought a tear to my eye! Prize - a Supercard DS ONE! Here's Prophet's full entry:

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    It's the ninth day of Tempmas, and I will give to you - competition number 9 (and a partridge in a pear tree!). Sorry for the delay on this one, but we've had a few behind the scenes difficulties, but here we are! We are still internally voting on yesterday's winner and they will be announced soon!

    [​IMG] Today's competition

    As we have only given you approximately 10 hours to compete this one, today's competition is just a simple three question quiz! So get your thinking caps on and if you wish to enter, just send us an e-mail (details below) with the three answers. We will then randomly pick a winner who will be announced tomorrow! The only difference is - you must NOT post your answers in this thread... Unless you want less of a chance to win! Also, you are only allowed one entry in this competition. If you make multiple entries, (even if you've realised that you have made a mistake, etc.) only your first entry will be accepted.

    Here are your THREE questions! Read them carefully!!

    Question One) A UK newspaper once reported a story about a father who was up in arms about a GBA game he bought for his daughter that allegedly contained swear words in the introduction. On closer inspection, it was actually a pirate cart that had the scene intro still attached. What game was it?
    Question Two) What was the name of the Game Boy Advance modification that shares its name with a popular 1980's SEGA arcade game?
    Question Three) Velez & Dubail created which full 3D platform game (licensed) for the GBA?

    [​IMG] How to enter?
    Please follow these instructions very carefully! We will not accept your entry if you fail to comply with all the instructions.
    To enter, simply send an email to xmas@gbatemp.net with your entry.. As mentioned above, unlike previous competitions; you must NOT post your entry on the forums. We only accept entries via e-mail.

    [​IMG] Winners & prizes
    We will reveal the winner and the prize for this competition tomorrow, when the next competition is announced! Remember that prizes will be getting better and better at each competition, and that we will have a special contest on Christmas Eve! You have until tomorrow, 12:00am GMT to enter this competition!

    [​IMG] Special Thanks
    We would like to thank all the staff members that have been involved in the event organization so far, without forgetting our generous partner shops!

    I found the article mentioned on the first question, and it's not recent! That is misleading.

    I don't suppose anybody would be willing to give any more information on Question One...? [​IMG] I'm completely stuck, I have no idea what to look for...the other two were easy enough.

    Hehh. I had the most problems with question #3 xD.
    1 & 2 - weren't that hard... especially 2 since i used it and knew it from the top of my head xD.

    Also, congrats to TBA. You seem to win a lot of those mini competitions xD.

    After a significant amount of searching, I managed to find question one.

    I am awesome.
