Haven't decided on my choice yet, but can I make a suggestion? Since the compo seems to only attract a few players (sadly), how about people playing get to nominate another game (after a month or so), until the max number of games is reached? It would be good to have a wider selection of games to play in each round, rather than the usual 4 or 5 we seem to be getting at the moment. Just a thought...

You don't need to play all the games, just think it would be nice to have a bigger choice. e.g. I've completely given up on Rainbow Islands due to sucking bad at it. Tongue

If we get overloaded, priority will be given to participants of the previous round.
Once the round has finished, you can no longer submit scores for it.
Nominations for the next round will be open 7 days before it starts & close 14 days before it ends.


It looks like this now.

I've had a few quick ideas -

3 games each.
2 games each.
1 game each then 1 more if you post a score.
1 game each then 1 more every month.
1 additional game for every score posted (for a different game).
The random picker chooses a game from all the previous competitions.

Try not to over complicate things.
Let's say that each entrant can pick two games.
Game 1 gets selected automatically and game 2 gets pulled out of the hat if it is decided there are too few games in any quarter.

Haven't decided on a 2nd choice, yet.

Late to the party :)

Have we had the original Metal Slug yet? If not that's my 1st choice for this round.



mslug.zip

settings - Press F2, select 'soft dips' with your game controls:

HERO = 3
CONTINUE = OFF
DIFFICULTY = LEVEL 4
PLAY TIME = 60
BLOOD = ON
(unless there are kids watching Embarrassed)
