    Hi! To celebrate v1 of Flingy being released on the App Store we'd like to run a little competition with six promo codes up for grabs to some lucky people :)

    [​IMG]

    Flingy the robot has fallen from his home in the sky!

    Propelled by his jetpack, Flingy must swing around spheres to get back to his beloved Mrs Flingy-- but he's clumsy and needs you to control his grapple!

    Simply tap spheres to grapple to them and tap anywhere to disconnect. Use Flingy's momentum to fling him higher and higher!

    iTunes link: http://itunes.apple.com/app/flingy/id395631319?mt=8

    To win one of the promo codes simply post a Flingy poem below :) Can be anything related to the game, robots, whatever you like. Bonus points for haikus! We'll select the best half a dozen entries over the next week or so and update this thread as we go until we have all the winners!

    Good luck - and get those creative juices flowing :D

    Flingy gets thrown into the air
    With the greatest of ease

    To try to get back to Mrs. Flingy
    Who is not all too pleased

    For her hubby has fallen onto the earth
    And is now trying to elevate his great girth

    With the help of some timely grappling
    Along those helpful spheres

    We can make their reunion a big time happenin'
    For a heart-felt gathering filled with robot-strewn tears

    Good luck to all the wordsmiths
    Let's try to keep it light

    As I close this stanza
    By wishing everyone a sleepy "good night"

    He tries and tries with all his might
    To not give up without a fight

    As his mind is covered in many fears
    He clings and reaches to all the spheres

    He hangs on to his dear life
    In order to see beloved wife

    The more and more Flingy climbs up
    The less he knows about the fate of his luck

    His speed is very much like fire
    As he tries to get higher and higher

    With the stregh and his determination
    Flingy has finally reached his destination

    Knowing that he finally succeeds
    He now has the chance to be at ease

    With Flingy's worries now diminished
    He can finally except that his journey has now finished

    Ten little robots standing in a line,
    One fell down and then there were nine.

    Nine little robots going through a gate,
    One tripped up and then there were eight.

    Eight little robots marching down to Devon,
    One got lost and then there were seven.

    Seven little robots doing clever tricks,
    One was told off and then there were six.

    Six little robots learning how to dive,
    One jumped in and then there were five.

    Five little robots walking on the floor,
    One slipped over and then there were four.

    Four little robots climbing up a tree
    One fell down and then there were three.

    Three little robots visiting a zoo,
    One got eaten and then there were two.

    Two little robots playing in the sun,
    One got burnt and then there was one,

    One little robot working all day long,
    He went home and then there were none.

    The Robot
    by Michael Mack
    Upon the stairway of despair,
    Complete with broken love affairs
    And promises that never came,
    But faded with a touch of shame,
    A pretty girl with golden hair
    And innocence so sadly rare,
    Strove to keep her head above
    A way of life devoid of love.

    Feeling pinned against Life's wall,
    She chanced upon a robot tall
    And said, "Please come and share with me
    Whatever Fate has deemed to be.
    I'm through with love, done with chances
    Spirit crushed by past romances,
    Just be a friend in word and deed.
    That's all that I shall ever need."

    "There's not too much from me to learn,"
    Remarked the robot, in return.
    "Emotions do not form a part
    of my cold, solid-steel heart.
    Whatever maker fashioned me
    Did not permit my circuitry
    Responsiveness to love or pain -
    You're thoughts for me would be in vain."

    "No matter", spoke the maid. "No more
    Do I wish passion to explore.
    Be someone I can come home to
    When my exhausting day is through.
    Count yourself a well-worn shoe -
    A friend that I can slip into . . .
    Protection from a stone cold floor . . .
    For this I ask and nothing more."

    Agreement made, he took her hand
    And lived the life that she had planned,
    Always willing, not demanding,
    Aiding her with understanding
    He made her smile with humorous wit
    (As his restrictions would permit)
    And, bit by bit, she came to feel
    That he was more than iron and steel.

    "I love you, robot", she at last
    Replied when several months had passed.
    "You're strength and quiet dignity
    Have brought a wondrous change in me.
    No more do I feel all alone,
    And pray you must be flesh and bone.
    Deep-set emotions you MUST feel
    Within that outer coat of steel!"

    "If I were able, I would say
    I'm sorry I was made this way
    But my design and programmation
    Does not provide for that creation
    Of feelings normal men may feel
    That were not born of iron and steel.
    I told you all this once before.
    You have no right expecting more."

    "Go, then!" cried she. "I will not live
    Beside a fiend who cannot give!
    Though I be battered by misuse,
    Misguided trust and strong abuse,
    At least the men I chose were real
    And had the power to love and feel.
    Of all the lovers I recall,
    You are the cruelest one of all!"

    The robot, indestructible,
    Continues freely and at will.
    Emotionless, apparently,
    But, bearing closer scrutiny,
    One can see a small tear streak
    Down that cold, metallic cheek
    As I reflect upon my life . . .
    That lovely lady was my wife.

    The robot, of course, was me.
