What Are Tombstones? // Competition Time!



March 5, 2018

Hello again!

I’m back, and I’m here to talk about Tombstones!

Tombstones are something you or an opponent drops whenever you wreck.


But don’t worry, it’s not just a way to mock your inevitable destruction, you can use them to your advantage and smash through them to gain boost!

‘That’s great, Aaron, but why are you telling me this?’ Well, I want to talk about my favourite thing about Tombstones – the awesome, unique designs that will help you stand out from the crowd!

Everyone in the studio has been busy creating their own weird and wonderful tombstone designs.


But we want MORE designs; and this is where you lovely lot come in!

We want YOU to send in your unique tombstone designs for the chance to be featured IN GAME!

Using the grid template below, we want you to create some pixel art perfection.


The lucky winner will not only be immersed in ONRUSH, but will also receive a goody bag full of ONRUSH merchandise, including a copy of the game!

To enter, simply send in your entries to competitions@codemasters.com or you can send them to us via Twitter and Facebook.

The competition closes on the 2nd of April – so you have four weeks to get your creative juices flowing!

The winner will be revealed via a blog post in April.

Good luck!

A few tips:

• Try to use the full width and height of the frame when possible
• Try to minimise dead space, a minimum of 50% of the 1024 pixels must be used.
• Avoid using orange & blue, the ONRUSH team colours, in a predominant way.
