    Default Play Puzzllotto Win up to $30,000


    United Lemur Inc. the creators behind the AppStore game Puzzllotto are having a contest where you can win up to $30,000 by solving the puzzle.

    The contest started earlier today. Every day that no one has solved the puzzel $1,000 is added to the prize for up to 30 days. The idea is that people will be strategizing and even if someone solves the puzzle in 10 mins they'll wait to submit the solution so the prize money and winnings can increase.

    Puzzllotto is in the same spirit as Zort or Myst. You are given no instructions for gameplay and have to figure out everything yourself including the solution to the puzzle. The game is set in the jungle and there are a few creatures in the game: Lemur which is your guide as you walk through the forest discovering secrets, Fosa which are terrifying and should be watched out for and Butterflies which are worth their weight in ariary (Madagascar currency).

    If you want to play and try to win you can buy Puzzllotto from the app store for $4.99. 10% of the price of the game is donated to the Madagascar Fauna Group. Not all people can participate in the contest for official rules click here.

    Every day it will be announced at 12 noon Pacific Time if anyone has won yet on Twitter.

    Get your game on!

    Well, I tried all tree options. Ovay just repeats the first puzzle and the two others give you the same puzzle with rearranged eyes positions. When solved the same message screen is presented. I don't know what comes next. http://modmyi.com/forums/images/smilies/confused.gif

    after doing some google looks like that the language is "MALAGASY "
    but i couldnt find any good online translator to understand it
    here is the best i could find out

    Arahabaina = To be greeted, to be congratulated

    tena =The self; the very thing; the body

    saina indrinda... = Especially , The mind, the intellect

    u could try teh rest of the words here
    malagasyworld.org
    its the best site i found for it and its not amazing
    good luck man

    ^Lol, I was going to say the same thing.
    I'm thinking one of the people that scam through email must have gotten onto the AppStore some way or another.

    Solved, and I got the same message, I think that message means, "Go and tell your friends about my app, so they can buy it and I can get my $30,000.00"

    Yea i got there too. I think there is a code that tells u how to win between all those eyes and lemurs. I just dont know what the code is. I am so confused, is there even a solution. Or is it just nothing, there is no question to solve. O_o

    i haven't finished in under ten seconds on each but here's how i figured out about the pattern. I assigned each set of eyes a number between 1 and 8. when it flops sides on the second level i reassigned my numbers based on the same pattern. in level three which is a return to side one, the pattern changes. in level 4, which flops back to side 2, the pattern is the same as in level 3. so basically i think about it as side 1 and 2, with pattern A and B. i'm given the three options ovay, manomboha, mijanona, and ovay is the one that lets me progress (i know this because it flashes the grid of eyes, lemurs, and butterflies), until i complete level 4, then ovay disappears and you can touch mijanona to get the grid flash, but it starts back at level one.

    I'm stumped. I've line my version of the code up and tried dialing it as a phone number but no bones. also, i've considered that it could be some kind of cipher, but I think that's thinking to complicated. In the comments section of a techcrunch story on the game someone suggested reverse engineering it. the developer responded that he was an engineer and not a puzzle guy and it would be easier to solve the puzzle than try to out engineer him.

    someone who has gotten as far as us...something i didn't know, when you get to two options (after level 4), you can touch elsewhere on the screen to see the grid that is flashed between levels.

    here's a screengrab of "the grid"

    As point of clarification, I thought I'd chime in and let you all know that we have worked with professional promotions attorneys and have impartial third-party judges running the competition. This promotion is 100% legit, and it's all a matter of wit and skill. There is nothing random about it.

    Good Luck!

    This sounds like a Win-Win situation...money from the app sales to the developer and money to Apple for all the smashed Touch and iPhones
