Leading up to the start of the promotions, Maxis staff handed out ang pow with information on free mobile games like “Real Football” and “Block Breaker”.
Not much of a promo if you ask us but whatever.
Why are mobile games on mobile phones are still relevant nowadays, we will never know. Have you tried playing games on a mobile phone? It’s really crap. I’d get a PSP or a Nintendo DS any day. And that’s what we’re we’d advise you to do as well.
There’s also more than 500 “specially selected” Chinese New Year songs available for you to download.
Perfect for those who have access ang pau money and really don’t know what to do with it.
Check out Maxis website if you want to know more but if we were you…we wouldn’t bother.
