Voting
  • Voting will take place in the official voting topic between 10:00 GMT on September 15th and 22:00 GMT on September 25th, lasting approximately 10 days.
  • Voters post a single post in the voting topic ranking the games in order. Voters must rate at least 3 games and provide a review for their top three (you can vote for more than 3, but not less).
  • You may not vote for your own entry in this jam.
  • Votes will be counted using the inverted rank method. ( 1/vote + 1/vote + 1/vote etc…)

What am I voting for?

 

In this jam there are no special categories, you are voting purely for your favourite game! When voting, you should take into account how fun the game is, how closely it stuck to the original jam game, and how "retro" or "demade" it feels. Rank your games in order of preference and you're done!

 

More information on this jam can be found in the discussion topic. Get voting!

Reviews:

 

Alice - GMC Jest - [8/10]
Yes! You included a demake of my personal worst ever entry "Just Pop Bubbles" :P
And it was actually fun (or at least interesting) to play, unlike my original entry haha.
The remake of Rebus was very cool too. You pulled off the whole text-based game thing 
really really well. I only got 10/21 right without skipping, but then I'm a bit dopey.
I like this entry a lot! 
 
GameDevDan - Maggot In A Frying Pan = [??/??]
My Own Game. Has bonus NAL, what more could you want?
 
GameGoblin - WillO - [9/10]
Yay! Another person demaking a game of mine!
I like how some of the levels are a bit different to the original but some are almost the 
same. Level 13 still spelling out "13" was a really nice throwback.
There are a couple of bugs. For some reason when I finished a couple of levels I got shown a
winning screen, or turfed to the credits, but I knew I hadn't played all the levels and sure 
enough when I went back to the menu there were levels left to play! :P Another oversight is that 
your wooden boxes "melt" to put out candles underneath them, which wasn't in the original ;)
The game was fun to play ultimately, and I completed every level. It was clearly demade, although 
I don't know about "retro" given there is gradual transparency all over the place. It really helped 
using a midi file for the sound though - my synthesizer happens to have all of the instruments set 
to GameBoy sounds as I was using it for something else recently, so the game sounded real good XD
Overall a nice entry, thanks for the demake!
 
HayManMarc - Saucers From Space - [6/10]
A decent remake of the old game, and certainly sufficiently retro. The control scheme was a bit trying,
but the gameplay in general was pretty fun.
 
LukanSpellWeaver - Twerkin' Yarrr - [4/10]
Dat Miley. Funny take on Darrell's absolute classic. The underlying LCD thingies should have been less 
visible, it all looks a bit messy as-is. Other than that a decent entry.
 
Mercerenies - Roy's Adventures In Crafting - [3/10]
A roy game?! *looks scared* *plays* Ah it wasn't too scary. I didn't create the universe. I created some 
halves, some quarters, and a negative roy, whatever that means.
 
Nallebeorn - Taco Quest - [9/10]
Features Dadio in apartment 501. Bonus points.
Guestbook features ME. Bonus points. Also the other people but nobody cares about them.
I can tell you put a huge amount of time into this game and you did really well! The commands work 
really decently, and the game is full of good humour and interesting tales. I like it.
 
Nocturne - Maggot In A Frying Pan - [6/10]
Dem demented maggot screams XD Nicely retro-fied there. Sturdy and frightening competition for my game.
 
nvrogers - Doomshark Devolve - [7/10]
Clever use of the restrictions of this jam, not only demaking the game but also making it more retro as 
it went along (and reversing the original gameplay to suit the feeling!). Quite well made, I got to the 
end and it was pretty fun. I would actually have liked more intermediate stages between the animals so 
that I could play longer! :P
 
Snail_Man - Cookie Restaurant - [4/10]
Pretty good, sufficiently retro. I'm not a huge fan of games in general where you have to wait around 
for things to happen, so I'm afraid I probably haven't given this a fair shake where the score is 
concerned. But it's a decent enough entry.
 
Yal - Sushido NES - [8/10]
True to the original it's a pretty hard game. Sometimes it feels like there are too many fish coming at 
you at once on the sushi screen, and on the boat screen I find it extremely difficult to judge the 
jumps. However it's graphically well made, sufficiently retro and, like I said, true to the original 
game. So it's a great entry!

  • nvrogers - Doomshark Devolved

Best use of original & demake: nvrogers - Doomshark Devolved
Best retro compliance (authenticity): HayManMarc - Saucers From Space

How I review:
First of all, there's how I liked the game overall, but that's pretty much taken for granted.

Then, more related to the Jam at hand, there are the following criteria:
  • Use of original - whether or not I like what the author did compared to the original work; generally, improvements or creative twists are welcome (as long as they more or less stay in the spirit), while shortcomings are frowned upon
  • Use of demake - how I like the way the author decided to demake a game; uncommon platforms are welcome, simply decreasing graphics/audio quality without any "technical" limitations in mind is not; bonus points if the author manages to still make something of high quality with the chosen limitations
  • Retro compliance - how "retro" the game feels, or rather, how faithfully the author managed to reproduce the platform(s) of choice
They're all subjective, of course, but then again, what isn't? Also, there are no numeric scores, I'll just rank the games as I feel appropriate.
