    Like many other great kings before, King Oddball also needs a look-alike. Thus King Oddball requests your company at the King Oddball Look-Alike Contest. To participate, please follow the procedure described below.

    1) Please acquire the electronic image behind this link: http://www.kingoddball.com/lookalike.jpg
    2) Use your image manipulation skills to create the best look-alike you can imagine. Every object or person, be it imaginary or real, is an eligble look-alike.
    3) Make the resulting image available on the Internets and post it to this thread. The King has graciously agreed to allow several entries from a single contestant.

    The King's PR department has created the following example image: http://www.kingoddball.com/lookalike-example.jpg

    The King has announced the following prizes: A $50 iTunes gift card (or roughly the same monetary value in some other currency) for the best look-alike and smaller bonus prizes for runner ups.

    The contest will be closed on October 7th at 11:59 PM (-5 GMT). His royal oddness will select the supreme winner and runner-ups on October 8th. The winners will be contacted electronically via the Touch Arcade forums. The King will also announce the winners publicly and their names will be chiseled on his stony head.

    Let the contest begin!

    If you haven't heard about The King, the King's PR department encourages you to view the following video material: http://bit.ly/kingoddball

    Gl Hippi,

    So who won? And what does the runner up get?

    The King has decided that Hiipi wins and Darth Ronfar takes the second place. We will inform the contestants about the prizes soon. At the moment the King told us to say that ALL participants won something!

    Aw, oh well.. I guess I couldve designed it better but I was working with limited recources, I was hoping my creativity could pull me through but I guess not.

    I will it admit that Hippi's looks better, but considering he's a game Dev or programmer or whatever(not sure) its no surprise.

    Good job hippi, I'll happily take second. Still don't understand why more people didn't enter? It would only take about 10 - 50 min to make something and for a chance at 50$ gift card...

    Thanks for the contest 10tons, I hope you have another one like this, I'll make sure to win next time hopefully with alot more contestants.

    The first prize is the promised iTunes gift card worth USD 50 / EUR 40 and the second prize is a selection of eight 10tons iOS games. The number is eight because that is the favorite number of King Oddball. The winners have been contacted via PM.

    The King was also mystified because of the lack of participants. Nevertheless, he has deemed the contest a great success!

    I wouldn't give it to the greedy bugger..I mean he just drew a red stripe on a magazine..for one, it's copyright infringement, he should be disqualified, and two.. He is self entitled and thinks he deserves a prize when he didn't win, aka A sore loser, than tried his best to scam a 15$ card pretending he had most of the 10tons games when after his game selection, it's clear he does not own many 10tons games at all.

    copyright infringement?, it's a statue of Humpty Dumpty placed on a picture of a magazine design from a camera app. I'm not taking it and Using it for anything other than to represent what the contest asked for. Then I drew a tounge(actually its a bunch of tiny pink heart stickers put together) and tried to make a rock(which didn't come out that good.) and a crown.

    You thought Humpty Dumty was actually on an issue of rolling stones...lol
    That just shows it was atleast clever... Rolling stones ties into the what the game King Oddball is about.

    Sure it may not be something I made using graphical design, but you know what...I'm happy with what I made, it's not something that I did in a minute. It took me awhile to come up with it...

    I don't understand why you are complaining? You didn't even enter the contest.

    As for the games I actually do or did have around five games from them Azkend, Swingworm, King Oddball, Grimm Joggers, Sparcle and Iron Worm.

    Upon further searching I found there was in fact some I didn't have and glad to receive them.

    And yes there was a bit of delay and I was disappointed for not winning, but it wasn't that big of a problem just sent a few PMs and posted here. I even said the other guy's was alot better.

    In all honesty this has nothing to do with you and I take offence for someone going out of their way to feel the need to come here and intstagate.
    Now I have to go out of my way to come here to defend myself for no reason.
    This has already been handled, Next time you should try actually participating in a contest or talking about whats in the topic at hand. All your doing here is trolling.

    Finally to clear things up, there was no problem here, 10tons has already contacted me with my prize...

    Thanks again 10tons, Im very grateful for the prize I received.
