As part of the new MWEB Gadget Genie campaign, we’ve developed a micro site reminiscent of yesteryear’s 8-bit arcade games. The aim of the site is to attract pop tech lovers and to ultimately find South Africa’s gadget guru.
The micro site features a quiz that takes place in a typical platform-game world. Here the player has to face the Evil Dr Floppy and overcome his tough technology questions in a race against time. The micro site forms part of a larger campaign that will roll out in early 2009.
For some of today’s technologically inclined, 8-bit gaming was their first real run in with technology – be it on a Commodore-64, dad’s monochrome 286 Olivetti or at the mall’s gaming arcade.
Check out the micro site here. As a mobile extra, we’ve created a WAP quiz. To see how you rate, go to http://www.mwebgadgetgenie.co.za/wap/ from your mobile phone.
