As if the judges will value my opinion when making their judgement. And nobody said it had to look realistic. :)
They don't even listen to my opinion :? what have I unleashed?

Sorry for the delay but it was a tough decision so i've used random generator in which: 1 was for paladin(1st born), 2nd for teleport, 3rd for dwarf and 4th for spider. I got 2, so be it!

Viking34 - Icarus Tower
Good colour choice. 7

Can I just start out by saying how much I have enjoyed this task and think you all have done an outstanding job. This is what the Chalice is about, having fun and pushing yourself in ways you might have not thought about before. The calibre of entries has been really high and a joy to see. So good job everyone.
That said as a judge I know have to go through them one by one and mark them fairly based on how I see things. Given that I used to play the original a lot then this task hols special meaning to me. A few of you may feel that I will have been harsh but I did say I would be exacting. So here goes.

Ellume

When I first seen this I utterly impressed and felt it was a cracking standard for the rest to follow. I still do and could easily see it in the original game. However, as good as it is, it breaks the physics of the game. That is to say it would not fit in the 16x16 square of that all spells fitted in, in the original. Therefore, that will be taken in to account.
Great animation, sticks to the original colour scheme but needs to go on a diet.

A solid submission – 7
Plus my bonus – 3
10 out of 10

Clef

Really nice representation of a paladin. Would work well in the original but It wouldn’t fit in the 16X16 and that colour was not available on the Spectrum.

Well executed idea, good job.
5 out of 10

Viking

A very detailed and accurate Icarus Tower. Which in some ways is its downfall as it wouldn’t fit in to the square and the two tone colour would not be doable given the Spectrum’s graphical limitations.

Nice work if somewhat over ambitious
4 out of 10

MattyRasker

It is a shame as I can see a lot of work and thought has gone in to this. It is very good and detailed and sounding entry but it is way over engineered giving the limits of the original game. Colour and size would not be possible and Spectrums go beep.
Love the effort and attention to detail but it wouldn’t work in the game
3 out of 10


Incarnadine

Another really well put together idea. And I do like the animation but once more there are size issues and it would not be able to be coded without a whole lot of colour clash.

Well thought out but over done.
4 out of 10

Grythandril

I really do like this and is a great vision of that totem as a 8 bit graphic and could easily see it in a version of the game on a slightly more advanced computer but it wouldn’t work on a Spectrum alas.

Great effort and execution but too fancy.
4 out of 10

ahMosty

What can one say. Top job. Totally nail the dimensions and colour and so very well thought out from start to finish. Or should that be from start to impact. Out with the classic cobra, the animation of the meteor works very well. Could very easily fit in to the original game.

Bravo. Nail head well and truly hammered – 9

I can’t not give this extra points for the job done here, right down to the recreation of the several classic creatures – 5
14 out of 10

Mr Twister

Nice idea, imply executed. It does break the game physics and had it not and had the wizard looked like one of the 8 form the original game it would have scored higher.

One to be proud of – 6
Nice Turmoil – 1
7 out of 10

Mazy

There is a very basic and original feel to your version of an Air Elemental. However, it is too big and would need reduced some and of course what would it do? The original was a 2D game, there are no height differences or holes and edges for things to be shoved off to their death. Therefore, to me it would have no place in the original.

Love the graphic but not logically thought through.

5 out of 10

Blobka (MVP award)

All your work was great. Though your spider to me looked very octopus like. What can I say though about your submitted one? Your teleport is perfect and utter genius. You have totally gotten the look of the original, wizard included and the animation is spot on. I can totally see that being a thing in the original game. Outstanding work.

Perfection – 10

Just wow – 5

15 out of 10

Again everyone, top job. You all done reallly awesome and wonderful work on this task. I genuinely love them all and have made me smile lots. A big (((((grouphug))))) for you all. Proud of you all.

See you on the next task.
