<div class='spoiler_toggle'>Games</div><div class="spoiler" style="display:none;">Game 1 - Left 4K Dead (http://www.mojang.com/notch/j4k/l4kd//)
Game 2 - You Might Get Nervous 2 (http://www.addictinggames.com/you-might-get-nervous-2-game.html)
Game 3 - Give Up Robot (http://games.adultswim.com/give-up-robot-twitchy-puzzle-online-game.html)</div>

The problem presented: I already have a copy of the Humble Indie Bundle (which is all 11 games, bundle #1&2)

The other two entrants to Andy&#39;s contest were a tie.

So my idea is this: have a smaller set of challenges, so that the public can still enter, but give those two who had entered a "leg up" so that their previous efforts are not in vein.

The previous contest would have ended in a tie, so there would be no way for me to fairly (without playing favorites) give out this prize.

I&#39;m thinking that i&#39;ll make it 3 games, all flash based/free and of different genres, so that there is an equal mix of games, mainly for fairness.

I&#39;m leaning toward Tetris, (though that has already been covered with the "previous" contest) a strategy game, and at least one action/reflex game. like a platformer or something similar.

I&#39;ll edit the first post and bump when i&#39;ve decided, until then, help me out with some ideas that you would be interested in/actually enter.
should all of the previous challenges still be available/do-able, or just there for the two who have already won/tied?

<big>If this thread doesn&#39;t make it to page 2 with coherent posts, NO DEAL.</big>
(by coherent i mean helpful/related to the topic. also, there will be an exception if there is only 1 page and more than 1 new entrant into the contest.)

get to it.

*bump*ing this.

is Marcus the only one still interested in this bundle of games?

if you&#39;re interested (and don&#39;t already own a bundle), please post, as entrants and at least a little bit of feedback are/is necessary, or i&#39;m just going to give it to marcus.

for those who are interested, I think i&#39;ve decided on at least one game.

Game 1 - Left 4K Dead (http://www.mojang.com/notch/j4k/l4kd/)

top down shooter, try to make it to the end of the level/kill as many zombies as you can. remember to make a screenshot (Alt + Print Screen, and then paste it into MS Paint or another program) and send it to me (put the image on photobucket, tinypic, etc)

There will be 3 games.

Scoring will be as such: (pretty simple, really)

-One Point for having the Highest Score in a game
-In the event of a tie, scoring will go game-by-game with the two who are tied. Their scores will be compared directly, so someone will win 2-1. (hopefully.)
-If both entrants only enter into one/two games, and there is a tie, there will be one tie-breaker game to be determined at a later date. There will be scoring, at best, it will be direct Player Versus Player in this event.

Please contribute your ideas, thoughts, and other on-topic posts, so that i can get a better bearing on what the contest should be/have.
If there are any questions, feel free to post them or PM me with them, your choice.

Get crackin.

Final game (for now) is up: Give Up Robot (http://games.adultswim.com/give-up-robot-twitchy-puzzle-online-game.html)

you decide how far you go, though the least to get scored (and thus, enter the contest) is 10 levels. again, screenshot the time/score (all one screen), and PM that, and your other two game scores, to be entered.

the one who sends me the farthest level (20 > 10) in the fastest amount of time will win this round.

*bumping* this due to today being the last day i&#39;m accepting entrants.

Marcus has entered into all 3 games, so if you want to win, you must submit a score in all 3 games.

they&#39;re all fairly short.. though you&#39;ll have to top two of his scores to tie, since he already had one win under his belt for participating in andy&#39;s first contest.

so if you&#39;re going to do it, do it now. PM me with the screenshot of your scores to enter.

<big><big><big>The deadline for entrys is 10 PM my time, which is in roughly 19 hours.
I can make an exception within reason, but there has been little/no interest, so i don&#39;t think that&#39;ll be happening.</big></big></big>
