Well here it is – the first of SIX category winners.
(AND – the downloads are back, so all you people hoping to download “Empire Strikes Back” – for example – can finally do so)
Category 1 is the pure “Retro Remakes” category. In the words of the judges “Bring a classic game up to speed on modern hardware”.
There were 21 entries, and the top 3 were:
In 3rd place…
This year, entries could run on either Windows PCs – or, for the first time – a Nintendo DS. Kukulcan has remade the TAITO arcade puzzle game Puzznic, and earnt himself 3rd place.
In 2nd place…
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…
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.
