Vote in the TegraZone Player’s Choice Awards and win a free ASUS Transformer Pad


NVIDIA is celebrating the first year of TegraZone, the best place to find the hottest Android games for your Tegra-powered device. ASUS, NVIDIA, and Android and Me are partnering on a sweepstakes in which readers can vote on their favorite Tegra games for the chance to win the new ASUS Transformer Pad. Read on for the full details.

About TegraZone

Tegra Zone

NVIDIA debuted TegraZone one year ago and it now boasts over 3.5 million installs. Over 1.5 million unique visitors have used the app during the past quarter and the average user visits every 3 days. NVIDIA has also helped developers gain exposure for their games with an average conversion rate of 19%, compared to the 5% average conversion rate of Google Play. There are now close to 40 games optimized for Tegra devices and we are seeing the quantity and quality increase every month.


My favorite TegraZone Game


I’ve played so many Tegra games and enjoyed a lot of them so it’s hard to pick a favorite, but I think I got the most enjoyment out of Shadowgun. I originally scored the game 7/10 for being too short and lacking a multiplayer mode, but the developer recently released an expansion pack with more levels and the free online multiplayer game is coming soon. Check out my full review of Shadowgun to see why bounty hunting has never looked so good.



First TegraZone Player’s Choice Awards

Scan to vote.

Starting today and running through May 31st, users can vote for their favorite Tegra games in three categories. Every user that votes in the TegraZone Player’s Choice Awards will be automatically entered to win a free ASUS Transformer Pad from NVIDIA.

Award Categories include:

  1. Best Graphics
  2. Best Gameplay
  3. Overall fun

  158. I love how many giveaways nVidia sponsors :) They just hand out product like people throw candy at a parade ;) Kudos to them. Asus is another company that has recently joined this bandwagon… and if you think about it, it costs the companies very little but generates a TON of marketing and word of mouth.

    If only other companies could follow their lead :)

  159. Count me in for free Android gear!

  176. Truly, Asus is one of the only Android Powered Devices that deserve respect from the community.

  177. was glad when you added Germany and the UK to the competition,but am i asking for too much if i simply ask you to add Sweden to the bandwagon ? :)

  178. I’m back just in time it looks like!

  179. Boom! right in the kisser!

    • Isn’t it “POW. Right in the kisser.”
