The winner - Slime Quest

ChangeV delivers another excellent competition entry with Slime Quest, a game that places the player in the role of a slime, the weakest JRPG monster, with a mission to escape imprisonment inside king's city. It's a single-screen action game where to goal in each area is to find a key and escape to the next one, fighting and avoiding various «hero» characters. The path to the exit from the city can be reached with different routes increasing the replay value of the game. The graphics and the engine is excellent, while the story is cute and witty, all what is usual for ChangeV and JawsV. Still, I found this game slightly less entertaining than ChangeV's previous competition effort – UminvaFB. Overall it’s a better game, but maybe not addictive as UminvaFB.

The aftermath:

None of the developers of the submitted entries expressed their desire to advance their entries at the time of the writing of this webpage. Same goes for other people who started working on entries for this competition, like Mitchell with his 3D raycasting engine, but never released anything that can be shown here. So it seems that this competition is pretty much wrapped up. Thanks to all participants.
