Turns out my Java4K entries for this year were quite successful: Farmer John and the Birds 4k (91,7%) got to third place, and Wizzy 4K (90,3%) to the fourth place. Galactic Conquest 4K – II (79,7%) got to a respectable 19th place out of 68 entries this year. Here’s some quotes from the judge’s reviews that make me a very happy Grunnt:
Probably one of the most graphically pleasing 4K game I’ve seen. This game is a perfect example what you can do with colors and shapes, and if anyone is looking for how to do graphics in 4k, just look at this game. Doing a gradient background doesn’t require many bytes. If I didn’t know better I wouldn’t suspect this being a 4k game. (Arni Arent (appel))
Hahaha this game brought a smile to my face as I tried to kill “those little buggers”! I love the farmer’s mutterings and the cute little birds and the fitting sound effects! I was almost cursing myself with every single time I missed a shot. No problems or complaints found after almost 20 minutes of playing this! Excellent job! (Roi Atalla (ra4king))
See the judging results here. There’s a lot of other interesting games and concepts here, worth a look. The winner, Flywrench4k, for example is a very cool new game concept, try it out!
