Imagine being rewarded for winning a game. No, we don’t mean that rush of emotions when you emerge victorious (though that’s part of it too), but monetary rewards.
Bugis Junction and Bugis+ are giving you a treat this Halloween – sans any tricks. They’re inviting you to battle with zombies to win up to $1,000 worth of CaptiaVouchers. But don’t worry, there won’t be any real-life zombies walking around you because everything happens in virtual reality.
According to the press release, “The Time Zombies VR competition “uses the latest Artic Fox wireless technology, which allows a fully immersive gaming experience without the the burden of cumbersome cables or backpack computers that hinder physical movement.” So basically, you’ll be able to enjoy the game more without stumbling over cables with every other step you take, nor do you have to carry a backpack computer that will spoil your OOTD.
If you’re wondering what the game is about, you’ll be playing the role of a detective who’s trying to stop a mad scientist Dr Virago from starting a zombie apocalypse. Sounds like a cross between the plot of a Marvel movie and The Maze Runner, but hey, if you get to save the (virtual) world, why not, right? Just keep a lookout for the living dead and stop them from, well, eating you.
To play this game, you would need to present a receipt with a minimum spend of $20 in a single receipt at either Bugis Junction or Bugis+, or redeem one game play with 100 STAR$® via the CapitaStar app.

The game runs from October 13 to 26, and if you’re one of the top 10 winners during that period, you’ll be invited for the finals on the 29th, where you can win prizes, including the following.
- First place – $1,000 CapitaVouchers, plus Samsung S7 edge x 1 and Logitech speaker x 1
- Second place – $800 CapitaVouchers, plus Samsung S7 edge x 1 and Logitech speaker x 1
- Third place – $500 CapitaVouchers, plus Samsung S7 edge x 1 and Logitech speaker x 1
- Fourth to Tenth place – $100 CapitaVouchers each
If you’re the kind who prefer instant rewards, there’ll also be a daily competition, where you can win STAR$® based on the points you accumulate during the game. The can be converted into CapitaVouchers (every 5,000 STAR$® accumulated can be used to redeem $5 CapitaVouchers).
- 1,000 to 1,999 game points = 1,000 STAR$®
- 2,000 to 2,999 game points = 2,000 STAR$®
- 3,000 to 3,999 game points = 3,000 STAR$®
- 4,000 to 4,999 game points = 4,000 STAR$®
- 5,000 game points and above = 5,000 STAR$®
Not a competition kind of person? You can still enjoy the VR experience from now till October 15. Try the Walk the Plank game, which involves walking on a plank that’s 50 storeys above ground – while dodging creepy crawlies flying at you. Although all these are happening in VR, this game is probably not suitable for those afraid of heights or bugs.
Alternatively, try the other zombie game, Arizona Sunshine Zombie, available October 13 to 29, where you have to look for fellow survivors in the Arizona desert during a zombie apocalypse.
To take part in these games, head to the VR booth at Bugis Junction in front of Hotel InterContinental and present a receipt with a minimum spend of $20 in a single receipt at either Bugis Junction or Bugis+. Alternatively, shoppers can redeem one game play with 100 STAR$® via the CapitaStar app.
