Augmented Reality Awesomeness with Medicol's Tap Out Pain!

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

Last September, I got invited to Medicol's Press and Bloggers Launch for Medicol's Tap Out Pain game. Ironically, I wasn't able to go because I was IN pain that day because of a gout attack. (long story) It's too bad because I really wanted to check out the app.

For the benefit of those who weren't there, this was the awesomeness that we missed:
The country’s first augmented reality game of its kind – Ibufluid Medicol Advance’s Tap Out Pain. Tap Out Pain is the latest installment in Medicol’s Advance Rewards Program (check out, which makes winning super super easy. Simple social actions like tweeting or rating photos immediately enable you to win cool lifestyle prizes like an iPad, Samsung S2 and various GCs. 
Tap Out Pain’s attractive full-color graphics promise visually stimulating eye-candy throughout the gameplay. The user is continuously challenged to take on ever-quicker reaction-time levels. Using either your PC or Android device, you can tap out the Pain Monsters that graphically represent a specific yet commonly experienced type of severe pain: SKULLDRILLER for Severe Headache, BRAINLEECH for Migraine, CRAMPZILLA for Dysmenorrhea and MAGMATOOTH for Toothache. Naturally, the augmented-reality “killing” weapon is the same as the real one: the Ibufluid Medicol Advance softgel. 
Players just have to initially purchase specially marked MEDICOL ADVANCE 5’s Pack at Mercury Drugstore and Watsons Pharmacy. Then they simply register at, enter the scratch code found on the Ibufluid MEDICOL ADVANCE 5’s pack, scan the special TAPOUT PAIN barcode to unleash one of the Pain Monsters, and it’s game on! 
*Tap Out Pain was made possible by Ibufluid Medicol Advance for fast and advance relief for nakakapamaluktot na pain.
Sounds cool, no? Wait till you see the monsters you have to contend with! I bet I could take any of these suckers on, mano a mano.

Okay I take that back. These guys would totally kick my ass from here to kingdom come.


You can download the app on Google Play FOR FREE here, or you can just scan this QR code:

I hope they come out with an iOS app for this because I am itching to try it out. Until then, I'll live vicariously through you, Android owner friends. Do me proud.
