That's an easy one; Tiny Bobble of course

If I could pick 2nd and 3rd it would be "Tiny little Slug" and "Smarty and the Nasty Gluttons".

Oh, and I think you missed "Black Dawn Rebirth" and "Vegetables Deluxe" off the list.

They are 2019 games which were already in voting lists of 2019 year. AFAIK Floppy Bird and Looty were never mentioned.

@Solo Kazuki

entry error:
Jump BesiLabyrinth 64

perhaps also rename:
Swidron -> Swidron (fix) (1994)
Looty -> Looty (update) (1994: [ Show youtube player ])

Rotator (first version: 1996, they should have called this new version Rotator Deluxe)

other game public realised in 2020:
Little Princess 1 (2014 Night Owl Design)
Little Princess 2 (2015 Night Owl Design)

I think you should split the original games from the ports.

Tiny Bobble wins for me but I would have voted for Tiny Slug as an original game.

I vote for Wiz, but if there were option to choose next places it would be Smarty for second, Tinny Bubble for third, Magica for fourth place.

Tiny Bubble is a spectacular port but, in fact a porting ... For me, Tiny Little Slug wins, a game created ad hoc as we were in 1993, closely followed by WIZ by MutationSoftware.

It is a pity you get only one vote, so many good games in this year.

I voted for Tiny Bobble and my other votes would go to Wiz, Magica and Super Wormy.

Although I really like Wiz and Tiny Bobble, I fell in love with Tiny Little Slug last year. That game just got me.

+ 1

Just as I did

Rotator is also a very clever, original game with lot's of levels. The problem to me is that the game become to hard to fast. Else it could have been a classic. I must say Santa Run is also a lot of fun even if it is a short game.
Smarty and the.... is also very good and last but not least Sam's Journey and Wiz is nice.

Any chance some good soul could put together a pack with the non-commercial ones? Would love to check them out, but tracking them all down could be a bit of work...

Great idea for a thread - obvious I guess but with the recent resurgence in the volume of PD / Homebrew games per year having an annual poll is a great idea

It's nothing new... one usually gets created every year on EAB

i.e: Best Game of 2019 ;-)

Some extremely good games came out last year that's for sure. I ended up going for Magica - a pretty much perfectly-formed single-screen arcade-style platformer. It's tremendous fun and extremely well converted from the original.

So let's count Raid Over Moscow as 2020's game
