NVIDIA hosts the Annual TegraZone Players Choice Awards with a chance to win one of seven ASUS Transformer Pad Prize Packs

It’s hard to believe it’s been a full year since the birth of the NVIDIA TegraZone. After one year, it now has 38 high-caliber games, a four star rating in the Google Play Store, and over 3.5 million installs. Remember, these games are optimized for Tegra 2 and Tegra 3 devices, including the newest tablet from ASUS, the Transformer Pad TF300. Asus is redefining the future of mobile computing devices with the launch of the new Transformer Pad featuring the NVIDIA Tegra 3, the world’s only quad-core mobile processor with a 5th battery-saver core. Running the latest Android™ 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the ASUS Transformer Pad is a value packed tablet with multi-color style and productivity with expandability when connected to the mobile dock. With a 1.2MP front and 8MP rear auto-focus camera with large F/2.2 aperture and exclusive office software, staying connected and productive has never been easier.

To celebrate the one year anniversary of the TegraZone, NVIDIA is hosting the 1st annual Players Choice Awards sponsored by ASUS. They’re asking all game players to vote on their favorite TegrzZone game in three categories: Best Gameplay, Best Graphics, and Overall Fun. The winners will be announced on June 6 at a special event at E3 in Los Angeles.

To make it worth your while, NVIDIA and ASUS have teamed up to award seven Transformer Pad prize packs over the next few weeks. The prize packs includes a Transformer Pad TF300, a keyboard dock, a Logitech game controller, and a Jambox speaker.

All you need to do is decide what your favorite TegraZone game is for each of  the three categories and vote for it at NVIDIA’s Players Choice Awards site. Once you vote, you’re automatically entered for a chance to win one of seven Transformer Pad prize packs.

There’s even more good news: Thanks to ASUS and NVIDIA, Talk Android has additional prize packs to give out to three lucky readers. We will post a different contest each week for the next three weeks, and all you have to do is comment and tell us your favorite games. It couldn’t be simpler right? Hit one of the links below to head over to NVIDIA’s Player Choice Award site and look for our contest post shortly.

NVIDIA Players Choice Awards

Even though I can’t win one of these amazing prize packs I figured now would be a great opportunity to let you guys know which game is my ultimate favorite. Demolition Inc. is by far the most frequented game on my Transformer Prime, and once I start playing it, I have a hard time putting it down. The game doesn’t have the best graphics out of all the games listed below, but it’s the gameplay that keeps me coming back for more.

Based on a demolition theme, you travel around to different worlds (levels) and use various tools to complete as much destruction as you can. The more destruction you can create, the more points you get. I mean, how fun does that sound? You begin the game with oil slicks and glue, and have to manipulate moving traffic into the surrounding buildings (Yes, your goal is to bring all the buildings to the ground so that you can plant more trees). From there, you earn tools such as exploding cows, a giant wrecking ball, and the awesomely destructive “earthquake bomb.” You can eventually get the ability to remotely control cars so that you can drive them straight into buildings and even off ramp into various structures! Awesome!

Now don’t go thinking this game is a simple and destructive walk in the park. As the game goes on you will definitely need to form a strategy because if you don’t bring everything to the ground before you run out of tools, you will have to start the level over. Demolition Inc. is almost a puzzle game in that way and one that I find highly addictive. So if creating your own path of demolition through various levels sounds like your cup of tea, then I highly suggest you check out Demolition Inc. for Tegra 3 devices. You can find the game’s description and download link in the following list.

Seriously though, there are so many great games in the TegraZone, it’s hard to decide on your favorite. Here’s a complete rundown of all the games. I’m sure there are some that you haven’t tried, so I encourage you to take a look at the list and pick at least one or two new games to try this week.
