It's definitely, maybe a twist  ;)

The twist is there's no bloody cash up for grabs!  Haha  ;D

I never work for free, nor should anybody.  If you do, then you're killing that industry!  :P

Nothing against Qube obviously - great guy, it's fantastic he's setup this wonderful programming community after another guy dropped the baton and he's been generous enough to put-up some cash prizes.

But there are industries that are being killed by people giving away their product for free - therefore devaluing that industry!  I have a real problem with that.

If it's a competition here (no guarantee of winning of course, but money is available) or selling a game for just a few bucks, then I would rather do that than give away my work for free and therefore make that software seem worthless in the eyes of the public - and they do!  People sell a handbag for a ridiculous amount, yet software is free?  Then it must require no effort to produce and be without value, right?

Fair point Mike, I wouldn't say what I've said if I was entering - too busy right now.  Good luck.

hmmm. I'm sensing hostility creeping my way  :P
Yes, we all hate you. You work too fast :P

Come on Qube, let's hear what you've got planned for us. Twists n'all.
Comp posted but decided in the end for no twists, just shear maze gloriousness :D - I think the freedom of a maze genre should get imaginations sparking.
Until the next time...

Ha! Let me quote myself in mild gloatingness at my perspicacity:

It's on!  ;D

Noticed that the comp thread (https://www.syntaxbomb.com/index.php/topic,4887.0.html) had this line:

8.. Prize to the winners payable via PayPal only.

May want to remove that line :)

Nah, there will be a monetary prize for the winner ;D - Not a huge amount but I think the winner should get a prize for being the best entry :)
