Thumbs up Amiga Game Development Contest - Judgment Day

5 playable games were finally submitted as entries for the contest (not all are fully finished).

Now it's time for us judges to playtest them and then come together to give our votes.

Here are the five games ready for download:

UPDATE: The judges will send their votes (a score between 1-10) for every game and their impressions via e-mail to the other judges by March 31st 23:59.

The winners will be publicly announced on April 14th 23:59 incl. reviews for each game.

I'm testing a bug fix for a compatibility issue and updating the archive at amigageek.com.

If you'd like to judge the deadline version of ModSurfer instead please use this link: http://amigageek.com/modsurfer/modsurfer1.0.lha

Indeed I've also fixed some bugs to do with the controls in Rygar on real Amiga's (some Amiga's worked, some didn't when pressing the Jump button).

If you want to evaluate the new version then it is here.

Happy to have the original evaluated if the rules apply.

Maybe we need a ruling on bug fixed versions as I have left my game alone so as not to confuse matters but happy to upload a bug fixed version if that's acceptable?

I suppose if we all have a few bugs that maybe stop the enjoyment of our games then there is no harm in it - if so then we just need an acceptable bug fixing deadline i.e. Monday?

I think that for all of us who have delivered the finished game it has not been easy. In my opinion, extending deadlines is to modify the rules during the competition.
I had to fight a lot and start the game 2 times because of the programmer's desertion, change the musician for egos and make me very heavy to be able to deliver the game on time. To be honest, I delivered two versions, because the programmer and I had a strong discussion about the 1 player competition mode, but at the end when it was ready, I delivered the corrected version within the term, respecting the other partners. For lack of time things have been left out, Those things we will add later. Much has been worked on in an original design, original graphics, an original AI and several types of competition.

All this is said now very fast, but they are many hours, working and testing. many hours, many days, weeks and months ...
I hope the best game wins the competition. Good luck to everyone.

I was talking with AlphaOne some time ago, he mentioned that coding was done, but he was waiting for assets

Well there's a playable demo of a blob moving around an infinitely scrolling background but that's as far as I got. Feel free to judge it but I can't see it winning anything except scorn!

My experiments in Blitz2 for XILEF turned into "Father Christmas versus Dinosaurs" which I released at Christmas. I didn't get any further with XILEF though as I realised I'd written bollocks and would have to start again.

I'll keep plodding on with it in my spare time but spare time is very limited!

After good progress with the prototype I ran into lots of problems to get the game to work on A500 in the speed I wanted to in the language I chose.
Hence, I ended up not completing it for now. I might look into actually using C and rewriting it from scratch one day, however.
