Well here it is – the first of SIX category winners.

There were 21 entries, and the top 3 were:

Ultimate Bruce Lee - StuC, Smila, Ovine

These guys are veterans of the retro-remaking scene, and Smila’s love for the C64 is well documented. Ultimate Bruce Lee features heaps of unlockables & you really need to play it.

And… the winner is…

The Empire Strikes Back - Minionsoft

The Empire Strikes Back - Minionsoft

Last compo, Minion turned some heads with his excellent remake of the original Star Wars coinop. Now he’s back with a remake of the sequel. It’s very, very well done, and has quite deservedly taken out category 1.

Minion wins a big swag of goodies, including a Pandora console.
