Thanks appel! Results seem fair to me - I know I'm happy Smiley

One thing I noticed though: The description for my game on java4k.com is missing a bit that's included both on the game's website and the forum post (the credit to the author of the original Flywrench). I was sure I'd put it there, but I suppose I might have cut it out by accident when doing my last edit. Is it possible for me to edit that back in (and would it be OK to update the entry just to add that)?

Big congrats to zeroone, for winning the community vote two times in a row! (previous win was with Laser Pinball). Looks like we got another notch here Smiley

I think it's possible to update it still yes.

Damn....my top 10 is almost nothing like the community's top 10. My tastes/review style must be different!

... or... the community is wrong!!  Lips Sealed

No, seriously, the reason for a judging panel is for a more balanced review process. Because not everyone who participate in community voting will review all the games and weigh them relative to each other. Personal preference of judges is an added wildcard, but the purpose of multiple judges is to balance that factor out.

Yeah, I have to agree with Appel. Whatever you originally thought for the voting process of your games should be the one that you publish. The community isn't really required to go through every single game, so the point distribution will be a little bias depending on what games the community played more of. (Well, except for people like me who went through and played every single game.)

It is interesting to see what the community's collective taste is. Can we have an idea of how many voted?

@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 Smiley

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 Smiley

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. Cry

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. Smiley

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. Smiley

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 ! Pointing

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 Smiley

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.

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.

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.
