Rock Out Game Contest: Conclusion.

Posted by AttackingHobo - July 20th, 2007


Tom Fulp,

Did you even play any of the games? The contest said that the games were to be rated by "Score, # of Views, Originality, Playability, Graphics, and Addictive Game Play. "

Most of the games were complete rip offs of other games.

1. Ongaku
This one is original, a decent game. Deserves its prize.

2. Incubus Pulsum
This one is original, fun, and has good graphics. Definitely deserves its prize

3. Headfirst To Hell
This one is a complete rip off of Elite Beat Agents, wow so original. And you cannot even rock out to the music, as it is comprised of calm acoustic guitar.

4. 1812 Overature
This one is pretty much DDR with one button. It has one song, its not even an original song.

5. Monsters of Rock
Wow amazing original game play, too bad it was stolen from Guitar Hero

6. Transmigration
TOM FULP!!!! This barely passes as a game, it is more of an interactive movie. I cannot see the rock out part of this game. If you see it please tell me.

7. Insurgio
Ok this game is slightly original, but I don't really see how it is a music game, sure the tree sings for a while and then a cloud, but seriously, how is this at all a musical game similar to DRR EBA or Guitar Hero? Also, the game is incredibly too hard, how can a frustratingly hard game be addictive?

8. -Play the Game-
This is good and deserves the prize. EXCEPT IT WAS LATE BY 5 HOURS.

9. BoM Beat Battle
Inovative and original.

Thanks TOM FULP, for actually looking at the games and rating them the way described in the instructions for submitting.

If I would have known that this is the way you would choose submissions, I would not have submitted my game to this worthless contest.

Life isn't fair :(

Hey,
I'm with you. 'Play the game' was good, but THAT good?

That sucks, I was pretty sure I was gonna win a runner-up prize.

hrm.. don't be too hard on Tom. I am pretty sure that Armor Games did the judging. Other than that, most people I've heard from seem to agree.

Just keep trying... It's not about the prizes anyway, it's about contributing to the community and having fun. If the prizes are important to you, let this be motivation to make an even awesome-er game next contest. I thought most of the winners were pretty deserving anyway. I'm sure it's really hard for the judges to pick from so many great submissions.

I agree with you in some aspects. BoM Beat Battle was an original game and executed fairly well. However, "rip offs" aren't as bad as you make them out to be - as long as they try to build on the game they're based off. It's improving on the original idea. But some of these games didn't do that.

And I think Tom did the music judging and AG did the games judging, seeing as how it was their contest. So uh. Beat on them. And let me join. =)

The rip offs in the games were poorly designed clones, I don't understand how they can win, when they don't even try to design original game play.
