Winter Competition Results

on January 10, 2008 - 2820 Views

YoYo’s five judges have announced the results of their $1750 winter competition. The panel was made up of Sandy Duncan, Mark Overmars, Jim, Michel and Clayts. A total of 236 games were uploaded covering a wide range of gameplay and of course quality.

There had been some complaints by users entering the competition regarding the contest deadline – mostly involving the javascript countdown YoYo had on their site showing the amount of time people had left to send in their games – but the contest seems to have come up with its winners in an uncontroversial and rapid manner. Hurrah. Let’s hope YYG continue like this for the rest of 2008. A new competition will be announced shortly.

    Yeah, I think Frozzd is heavily overrated as well. It was still better than a lot of the submissions, but the gameplay was too simple and the gravity didn’t even work that well.

    It was almost funny though how they claim the game is “more interesting than [Super Paper Mario and Super Mario Galaxy.]” Give me a break.

    Well you weren’t a judge :P.

    I would also agree that Frozzd wasn’t the best game out there. Although the graphics and sounds were amazing i felt that the replay value along with the slow and repetitive game play were bad enough, albeit still really good, weren’t good enough to earn the first place.

    I don’t agree with the winner- The winning game is such a boring one that only has good graphics.
