AppAdvice has once again teamed up with Bobbleshop in order to offer you a chance to win one of 24 promo codes for Pixelheads, ($0.99) for iPad, iPhone 3GS, third generation iPod touch and newer. The Bobbleshop bobble heads have encountered a time warp that will send them back a couple of decades. While in the past, these whacky figurines appear out of focus. Oh, wait, that's the marvelous 8-bit graphics of the early video gaming era. These new "pixelheads" are rockin' it old school style and it's time you joined in. Pixelheads, the app, provides an enjoyable and straightforward means to create a pixelated avatar. Picking items from easy to navigate drawers, you can select everything from the iris style and head shape to the shoes and shirt. In addition tot he outfit items and body features, the app includes a variety of accessories, such as sports equipment and iDevices. Items can be expanded, squished, and rotated using simple two finger gestures with many items allowing color change. When your avatar is complete, it's time for some presentation options. Add a nice looking base with a fancy nameplate or give it the retail box look, complete with preview window. Both options also permit the application of colorful backgrounds to further spice up the appearance. As the final step, you should save your pixelhead to the in-app Collection shelf, plus share it with friends. Send your avatar's DNA via email to anyone who has a Bobbleshop app to have it magically spawn to life in their hands. For a little more fun, import your Pixelhead DNA into the Bobleshop app and vice versa, utilize the Random option within the new avatar menu, and check out the featured bobble heads by selecting Popular Bobbles from the action menu.
