[Update] Think you've got what it takes to beat our resident gaming god Gamer X at Joe Danger?
Updated on January 25th, at 15:55:
Since Gamer X issued his original Tour 6 challenge to you, the PG
community, it has been brought to our attention that there exists a dastardly exploit in this particular Tour.
We've been in touch with Gamer X to explain the situation. Gamer X took the news reasonably well.
Anyway, Gamer X's new challenge is detailed below. Good luck. Again.
Do you think you've got mad gaming skillz? Reckon you have unbelievable Tekken
tekkers? Fancy winning some incredible one-of-a-kind prizes?
If you do, you should try taking on PG
's newest recruit, Gamer X.
As you'd imagine, Gamer X is one helluva mysterious and enigmatic character. Heck, we don't even know Gamer X's gender. No, seriously: we don't.
What we do know, though, is that he / she / it is endowed with superhuman video gaming abilities. Gamer X is particularly proficient at smartphone and tablet games, though he / she isn't averse to a spot of CoD
on PS3.Danger! Danger!
This month, Gamer X is throwing down the gauntlet on the Pocket Gamer Gold Award-winning iOS racer Joe Danger
To that end, Gamer X has asked me via telegram (again!) to issue the following challenge to the entire PG

So, do YOU think you can beat Gamer X?

- Add 'Pocket Gamer X' as a Friend on Game Center.

Wow. Just wow.
As befits his name, Jason Killingsworth has absolutely killed
the competition. In the nicest possible way, of course.
Somehow, Jason racked up a score of over 23 million points on Tour 7 of Joe Danger
. And then promptly told us about it. (Crucial, that bit, you see.) Incredible work. Simply incredible.
Andrew Roper, meanwhile, must be gutted about the final leaderboard, for his tally of 19 million was looking unbeatable there for a while.
Perhaps more impressive even than Jason's astonishing high score is this: the top 3 competitors on our final Joe Danger
Game Center leaderboard currently occupy the third, fourth, and fifth spots in the ENTIRE world for Tour 7.
I'll say it again: wow.
Suffice it to say, these three top-ranking Joe Danger
daredevils fully deserve their prizes. Which we will be sending out to them by carrier pigeon forthwith. Well done, all of you.
One last thing... Gamer X hasn't been returning my mails lately. I imagine he / she is still licking his / her wounds. I have a feeling, however, that we'll be, ahem, running into Gamer X again sooner than you think.

You've got just one week left to register your Joe Danger
high score in the comments section below. And with seven days remaining, we've updated the high score table for Tour 7.
Oh, and what a fight for the top spot it's become.
After languishing in fourth place for a few days, Andrew Roper has absolutely smashed the competition, and is now sitting comfortably in pole position in our inaugural Gamer X competition. Andrew's now actually ranked third IN THE ENTIRE WORLD for this Tour. I know!
Yes, previous Tour 7 frontrunner Andrew Berrill has been dethroned, while Daniel Frost isn't far behind in third. To even be in the same league as this terrific trio, by the way, you'll need to post a score of over 15 million on Tour 7.
Fourth, fifth, and sixth places are currently occupied by Santiago Salcedo, Joseph Smolenski, and Jason Killingsworth, respectively. Commendable efforts, chaps, but we know you can do better. Especially you, Jason.
So, with a week left in this ongoing race for glory, prizes, and acclaim, it's all to play for. Maybe you think YOU can thrash this lot? Prove it. Now.

This competition's only been running for five days and yet the leaderboard is already chock-full of mind-boggingly high scores.
Andrew Berrill has clocked up a mighty 16,493,416 points to take pole position, with Daniel Frost in second place at the moment with just over 15 million. Jason Killingsworth, meanwhile, has posted a commendable 5 million and is looking comfortable in third.
Just out of the running for prizes (at the moment) are Kian Cheong Lim, Andrew Roper, and Mohit Hoskote. Pick up the pace, gents.
It's still absolutely anyone's race / game, of course, as none of these scores is unbeatable. We think. To get involved, simply add 'Pocket Gamer X' as a friend on Game Center, then post your high score in the comments section below.
Oh, yes, the prizes.
Should you finish in the Top 3 on Gamer X's Tour 7 leaderboard, you will be rewarded with some absolutely amazing swag.
- 1st prize - A money-can't-buy, hand-drawn Joe Danger sketch direct from Hello Games; a Joe Danger banner signed by the entire Hello Games team; a Joe Danger T-shirt; and Joe Danger badges.
- 2nd prize - A Joe Danger banner signed by the entire Hello Games team; a Joe Danger T-shirt; and Joe Danger badges.
- 3rd prize - A Joe Danger T-shirt and Joe Danger badges.
What are you waiting for, then, eh? Get gaming, and good luck!
