When asked about Appy Nerd
, the our ever-elusive friend Gamer X replied: "I have never seen a game quite like this. It's a masterpiece critiquing the concept of free-to-play ad-based games by being one itself. Why are you looking at me like that?
"Anyway. I'm laying down a challenge. The Pocket Gamer

The omnipresent Gamer X has made his ruling. And it is not one to be messed with.
"We have had some serious contenders in the past fortnight. All after a piece of my beloved Internet FameTM
. However, there can only be... three."
The top three qualifying entrants for the competition were as follows:
Congratulations to Move Baba
for his astounding score of 773. Congratulations, too, to Lidija
for their particularly close scores!
Please get in touch via our Twitter or e-mail for your iTunes credit codes, stating whether you'd prefer them in USD or GBP.
At a press conference just after lunch, Gamer X issued the following statement:
's score has cemented him as The Appiest Nerd of All Time
. He will be known under this title henceforth, for all eternity. On this day of Tetris
, there are no losers. We all get to the top in the end."
With that, Gamer X bestowed Internet FameTM
upon Move Baba, Lidija, and Nadav
through an intense, unspoken haiku thought to transcend space and time.
Congratulations again to our top three entrants. Many thanks to everyone else for taking part in the competition.
Gamer X will return. Soon...
