Community voting results

Almost same with my sheet :slight_smile:

@ra4king: We’re the judges, just score what your mind tell ya! And if you feel wrong of subjective, remember lot of people even had to die in 18th century because of that.

Add all the points and divide by 50 :slight_smile:

EDIT: Just for funsies I added up all the scores: 2800 divided by 50 = 56 people voted. Not as many as I had hoped, oh well :slight_smile:

I should have seen that! i blame my head cold…

That seems about right, the contest is really only known by members of this forum.

I think the registration needed to vote reduce the participation.

Ah, results. Well done zeroone; very nicely balanced entries again this year.
Couple in the top ten, I didn’t expect and will go back and play again and one or two I liked that other folks didn’t.
Got to go, work calls. Looking forward to the judges votes.

Congratz to zeroone, teletubo and dapy.

My personal top 3 (Dord, Plants 4K Zombies, and my ApoBeam4k :wink: ) are in the community top 10, not bad. =)

Perhaps. Last year there were more participation though.

Maybe facebook sign-in would be better? Might make things more complex. Maybe share user accounts between jgo and java4k? Still need registration. In any case you will need some sort of spam/cheat prevention. I reviewed the votes this year and there’s no visible spam/chat.

I understand perfectly the need, and I have no magical solution. :’(

By the way, congratulation zeroone, teletubo and dapy.
I particulary like Tiny World and GC 2 this year (even if it’s a remake).

Congratulations zeroone! An excellent and deserved winner this year.

I must say, the shear variety of entries was quite incredible. It seems that we covered every possible game genre!

Flywrench was my personal favourite.

Thanks dapy! Made my day. :slight_smile:

I thought Tiny World was incredibly cool - one of the sweetest-looking 4k games I’ve seen. I was a bit rushed when trying the games, though I tried to give feedback to all the games. I missed a few of Apo’s since there were so many, but apart from that I think I commented on each of them. Unfortunately that meant I didn’t quite get a proper grasp of the gameplay for Tiny World. I wouldn’t be surprised if I returned to it to get a deeper understanding of it, though. :>

I actually had my bets on Dord, not Raibow Road. The gameplay in Dord is really fun.
Congratz to all who participated!

Looking forward to next year’s competition!

Aye, Dord is pretty great. My personal favorites were Wizzy 4K and Sorcerer4K, though there were quite a few really nice puzzle games as well. :slight_smile:

All participants, receive my congratulations for all these great games.

Although I prefered Dord over Rainbow Road, I admit that the first place is well deserved for zeerone, who is such an amazing game programmer. zeerone, please make us a commercial game next year and let this contest be fairer ! :point:

Thank you all for another great time at the 4k-pool!

Allthough I have different taste than most of the community, I still enjoyed the games!
Weird that I scored better than my personal favorite :slight_smile:

Again, best of regards to all the programmers for entering!

This year was very great. I was very surprised by the variety of games this year, and I enjoyed playing all of them. My personal top 3 this year was Dord, tiny_world, and Flywrench.

Congratulations to zeroone who has consistently, year after year, been pushing the boundaries of Java4K to make some really awesome games!

You forgot to take into account the Nintendo [dr]emake bonus.

My top 3 were Dord, Parasite Escape, Flywrench4k. I’m surprised to see Parasite Escape so far down. Half of my top 12 are in the community top 12.

I also had hard time in picking Dord or Rainbow Road (along with Flywrench, Fuego, M4nkala, Meltdown). Dord came to 1st spot for a moment but after played Rainbow Road I was confused.

[spoiler]I picked Rainbow Road over Dord. Reason is simple, I think I may be able to make something like Dord with some brain circuit fried but not RR. Not.[/spoiler]

Many good games, My top 3, Dord, Flywrench4k and Wizzy 4K.
It was often difficult to choose between a good gameplay and a technical achievement.
So I’ve tried to reward both, even if the goal’s contest is to make a game and not a technical demo.

Great, I think the community voting went quite well. At least, I got some nice and useful feedback, and the ratings seem pretty sensible. 56 people taking the time to assign these 50 points is not bad at all. The number is plenty high enough to get a good estimate of what the “community” thinks about the games.

Thanks Appel, the judges and the voters! Having Java4K each year is an excellent opportunity for me to try my hands at some things I’ve never tried before, it’s a great way to challenge people to start working on a new idea or concept.

I really like the games created by zeroone, and what is really great is that he always publish its source code so we can try to learn from it. Although the code is optimized for 4k games but he definitely has a style.
