1) Vanarchy
2) Young Prince
3) Rockman

As always, it's so difficult to judge the entries in a fair and meaningful way.  I have given all of the entries what I believe was a proper play (minimum ~20 minutes, maximum ~2 hours). I had little or no trouble running any of them on my Windows 10, Intel Core-i7 laptop PC.

Well done and good luck to all my fellow participants.

Definitely, such a high standard once again...I always base my decision on gameplay, the probability that I'll want to re-play the game, lack of bugs and some techinical finesse.

For me personally (I know we only have a limited time to complete) but a buggy game scores very low for me, no matter the complexity or potential.
Windows 10, 64-bit, 16Gb RAM, CPU Intel i5, 3.2 GHz, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 (2Gb).

My votes:

1) Vanarchy
2) Maisie Bones
3) Rockman

These three were 32 bit compatible... Which kinda helped on my 32-bit machine. Level of entries very high, Vanarchy made me realise my aging fingers aren't to cursor key friendly ;)

So how did you play the other entries? I provided a "Maze_Raider.Win32.exe" btw - not able to run that? (please reply to this in my Maze Raider thread to not furtherly derail this vote-thread).
Hope you played all other games as else votes would be a bit hmm "limited/biased" ;-).


Time to play all the submitted gems so my vote can come in too.

bye

Yes, tried all the games at the very least once, I'd to use 7zip to extract the games that weren't online, I bought a license for winrar an aeon ago but that died with an old PC. I'll refer to my test schedule for the scores on the doors tomorrow, I'll reply as requested on your thread if the .32 version worked or not, I'd have thought I would've ran a 32 version, apologies if I missed it. I gave marks out of 10 for sound, UI, gameplay and graphics. I didn't see anywhere specifying you had to have a 64 bit machine or you couldn't judge what was at the very least compatible with your rig. One game reported an NSIS scripting issue..... Hey ho, my votes are there anyway. I do recall relishing trying Maze Raider from the screen grabs, hope it works tomorrow.

(Edit) Maizie Bones worked after restarting my clunky computer, the 32 bit version, plz consider trying this if the executable seems to do nowt. Again, well done to all competitors :)

I'm going with:

1 - Rock'N'Roll
2 - Maisie Bones
3 - Maze Raider

I was so close to putting Vanarchy in number 3 but I just liked what Derron had done with Maze Raider too much. Also Maisie Bones was almost my winner but I came back to play Rock'N'Roll much more to complete the game, so I went with my gut.

For those of you who are interested in the votes so far without counting them up manually. Part of my job is data analysis so I do stuff like this all the time. This is how it stands so far based but ignore the points total as I just allocate 15,10 and 5 into a total so I can sort high to low quickly.
