SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.– July 1, 2009 - Publisher X, a videogame publisher committed to providing entertaining and innovative titles through the growing digital distribution channel, is proud to announce that it has launched the HydroTilt XL Builder Battle! Starting in July, Publisher X will give away one $100 iTunes gift certificate to the player who develops the most downloaded HydroTilt playable level for that month.

In order to be eligible for the giveaway, each participant must create and submit a playable level to the official HydroTilt XL website. User generated levels will be posted on the site under“Top Ten Level Packs,” and at the end of each month, the participant with the most number of downloads will be chosen to receive the $100 iTunes gift certificate.
