Life does not rewind, win an iPad 2!


Here's a game that allows you to learn and win yourself some amazing prizes!

The National Council Against Drug Abuse (NCADA) and Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) are organising an Anti-drug Online Gaming Challenge on the ‘Life Does Not Rewind’ Facebook fan page - (clickable!) from 05 December 2011 to 26 February 2012.

Every month from December 2011 till January 2012, an online game will be launched on the Facebook fan page and each game will have a challenge period of four weeks, where players can submit their scores in a bid to win the weekly prizes worth $150 and an iPad 2. All three games will remain on the ‘Life Does Not Rewind’ Facebook page for one year even after the challenge period.

"JUMP JUMP RESCUE" is the first game introduced and the challenge period would be from 5 December 2011 till 1 January 2012. The player with the highest score will win a 32GB iPad 2 and there will be another 16 winners who will win Resorts World Sentosa vouchers worth $150 (the vouchers can be used to purchase USS tickets!) Now who's excited to win the amazing prizes!!! :D

Just simple instructions on how to play the game.

Basically, all you have to do is use the "A" and "D" keys to move your character left and right, collect the balloons/ hit the birds and jump as high as possible! Along the way, you might hit obstacles in the form of drugs which may hinder your process but there are bonus in the game too!

Drugs such as the cannabis will make your character experience symptoms of drug abuse!

The character gets disoriented and has to press left to go right, and vice versa.

Here's one of the bonuses i talked about earlier! Upon reaching the height of between 15,000m to 25,000m, a hot air balloon will appear and take your character higher and higher! At the same time, allowing you to take a short break and snippets of drug information will appear for you to read :D

Guess what! You may also encounter drug quizzes if you hit the question mark. Getting a correct answer will boost the character upwards, while a wrong answer will push the character downwards!

Here's my score for my first try! LOL

Even though this game may seem simple, but there's actually a meaning behind it. As the tag line suggest, "Life does not rewind", there isn't a "undo" button which allows your character to go back to the previous step and can only advance. Once you miss the balloon, you go down.

It's a very simple concept game, easy to play (just 2 buttons, LOL) and you can easily get the hang of it. Honestly i had fun trying to get a high score, testing myself by answering the quizzes correctly so that i can add bonus height! So why not give the game a try at and who knows you might be addicted to it (NOT the drugs ah!)

There are always moments in your life where by you will question yourself, "If i were given another chance at that point of time, would i have done things differently?" There are definitely choices that we regret, there are decisions that could have been made better but guess what? The truth is, life cannot be rewind. So my advice would be, make the right choice, stick by it and never regret.

Just like the character in the game, hitting a drug may cause you to lose the game due to the effects of it. So we try to avoid any obstacles there is and move ahead, climb higher and higher.

"In real life, there's no rewinding, and that one will suffer for drug abuse."

Last but not least, this game is created by three students from ITE College West! Enjoy the game, gain some knowledge and not forgetting, win some amazing prizes at the same time! I'll be definitely trying my best to win that iPad 2 once the game is launched so you guys better try your best too! Once again, here's the link:
