Rescue The Colors Competition Community Poll
« on: February 04, 2012, 10:43:36 AM »
Sorry for the delay, but here it is!

Please vote for one of the entries in the Rescue The Colors Competition. The entry with the highest number of votes will get 9 points, the second 6, the third 3, and the last one 0. These points will be added to the remaining ones accumulated from other categories scored by me (80 + 9 points max).

The poll will run for 8 days, after which I will announce the winners (hopefully the next day).

The entries:

Be so kind to award the developers' effort by commenting their work and suggesting improvements for new versions.

Thank you for voting.

P.S.

Once more, thanks to all who worked on something for the competition, even if they didn't manage to submit a valid entry. I do hope everyone will continue on their WIP projects until they are the way they imagined them.

Congratulations to all the contestants for their entries!  I know how difficult it is to tug along and actually "get it done"*.

It's nice to see my name turn up in the credits of a game.  It's been a while :)

* Interestingly enough, my current employers are very result-oriented.  Maybe I'll be a game developer some day, after all!

Invasion of the Mononites! - Wonderful old school Jump & Run! ssjx style!! perfect game! Will play through it.

RACESII - Awesome engine and retrostyle! Didn't start at first and had to turn on the sounds. Little lack of game-play variation but fun racing game!

Y.A.G.A.C. - This is my favorite, even though I had to change the CFG file accordingly to my monitor. This is my vote because of the game-play and the 3D engine!! Superb! Will play through it.

Color Eater 3D - Played through the first level, fun but it was a bit hard to use controls properly. On level 2 couldn't use W to jump (have QWERTY keyboard).

Great entries... But playing YAGAC felt so good, I had that feeling while playing Super Mario on Nintendo, long time ago. Not to little elements in game, not to much, not to hard but makes you try and fail... Simply awesome!

In YAGAC, if I lose all my lives on the second level, I have to start all over? Still struggling to pass level 1. Got orange. Died. :/

I have added "continue" in the latest version.
Game is automatically saved every time you clear a level and start the next one.
You can even quit the game and continue later, data will be saved.
Of course to use continues and also to get the real ending, you can't use any cheats.  ;)

Not to get off-topic, but, this is like a grammar error in coding. It should be CINT(RND() * 4) MOD 4 because CINT() rounds instead of flooring.
But don't mind me. :P

I could give you hints if you want  ;)  Level 4 is a pretty confined space making it hard to turn around.  The walls on the bottom level are steep enough to kill you if you climb up them, but if you jump up them you can get much higher.  I think once you figure that out, the rest shouldn't be too difficult.

Level 5 is even harder, though it is less confined.  I made some parts of level 5 at the last minute, and I probably need to tweak it some.  (ie. preventing the cyan orb from spawning on the magma)  I have beaten it multiple times now, so it is definitely beatable.

I kinda tried that, but found it rather tricky, so I was hoping my tactic was wrong. Oh, well, will try for the third time. Fun game.

Color Eater 3D:
Died again. Damn! I must be doing something wrong. Do I need to change the travel direction in level 4 (clockwise opposite to counterclockwise-wise)?

YAGAC:
Found the key in level 1....and died. Argh! I really don't see how this game is beatable without level continues. I do appreciate the difficulty, though. Hopefully I'll be able to finish at least 2 levels before scoring the game.

Once you find where things are, it gets easier.
I can complete level 1 in 11 minutes. :)
