I know it’s been out for a couple of months already, but we dug up a leftover Xbox Live Arcade code for the retro run-and-gun side scroller, and now we would like to give it away to one of our readers. You know the drill!

Prize: 1 code to download Hard Corps: Uprising for Xbox 360 via Xbox Live Arcade. Game valued at 1200 Microsoft Points.
