Two Commocore games reach the 4th place in Craptastic 2022 competition!Print page
After a big success from 2 years ago (Bring back my bones 4k in TOP 5!), Commocore submitted 2 new games to the 2022 Reset 64 'Craptastic' 4k game competition that took place in the middle of last year. First one was a casual game, Mimizuku Saga 4k. The second one was the sequel to previously submitted shoot-n-collect pseudo 3D first person shooter: Bring back more bones 4k. As the organizer had unfortunately a flood situation at home (!), Commocore kept fingers crossed for the things to get sorted out, and after waiting for a little bit longer, the first 3 places were shared in December, followed by the final results and scores shared in January this year!
It's great news that both games took 4th place ex aequo with the game titled 20, released by Arlasoft. Looking at the score points, it was tight, same as in the 2020 competition. Learning from the previous experience, a lot of effort was put into these two releases. And it was worth it! It's a great honour and a great surprise to see these games landing that high, out of 26 titles submitted.
Unfortunately, another game, Dicing with Death, didn't make it to the competition on time, but it was still great to play 3 other games from Megastyle.
Besides that, I really really enjoyed playing Infiniral by Goerp. I tried to help him a little bit with testing, and really loved the game mechanics, idea, and execution. I am looking forward to an extended version of this really fun and addictive game. Chooo chooo!
Congratulations to Roman Werner, who nailed the competition this year with Marble Boy. Well deserved! Looking at his other games, including many jaw-dropping Basic 10-Liners, this gentleman is not going to retire any soon!
In closing, with these news, it's really a good start of 2023, and a great energy booster for Commocore! I'm looking forward to judges' comments, especially that Commocore has plans to bring back more bones for your Commodore 64, in the full version!
