Would you maybe post the link to gem winners from years past, everyone should see "The Perfect Picnic" and maybe they'll understand more why "Criminal" won.

Also, how's Johnny Utah?

Tom I have a question, how come almost none of the treasure hunt results are being added to their respective collections?

Hi Tom. I'm going to be like the typical Newgrounder and not answer your simple question. Thats right. I'm going to be trendy like the rest of everyone that posted to this topic (except maxvm). I'll start off by whining about how my selection...

...was totally ignored. I know this isn't even a puzzler but I think this is a gem that was just waiting to be found.

Then I'll tell you this is the seventeenth post and proceed to ask you why you haven't gotten to topics I want to hear about. Lastly I'll tell you how I can't be bothered to look at all these games and write even a mediocre review about any of them. I'll spare you the large image macro. I'm so helpful, aren't I?

Winer flash off? That's not like wiener flash-off is it? Cause I worry about how much of a dick-measuring contest that would be as it were.


It serves its purpose.

PITSWEEPER!!!

A cross between Minesweeper and a dungeon crawl. The beginning screen looks like a regular game of Minesweeper, except there is an adventurer on an uncovered square. You then click on the uncovered boxes and you will click on a wall, an open space, a treasure or a monster. If you are beside one of these things, you get a number that will either be green (for treasures and walls), red (if it's beside a monster) or yellow (if it's beside a combination of the two). You also can move your adventurer by clicking on uncovered squares.

Find the treasure (you don't need to get it but you lose exp if you don't uncover all the treasure), DON'T click on monsters for exp (or kill them but it's better to avoid them until the last level), find the exit, and descend nine levels. Kill the tyrant! FANTASTIC GAME!

I can NOT recommend this one enough, it is the finest "Gem" game I have ever discovered during the past 2 years. I recommend it to anyone that liked dungeon crawls like "Monster's Den" (although this is simpler) and also for anyone that likes Minesweeper. The additional strategy really adds to the fun. Don't forget to read the level intros. I love the little bits of story that was added to each level. My only complaint is all the "wall" clicking you have to do. There could also be a few more dungeon layouts but it's still a great game. There are even rare treasures like wands and stuff.

I love this game. I've talked it up several times to people I have met. I think it's just a fantastic way to spend an hour and hope you give it a chance when looking through the list. I genuinely think this is the best finalist in the game section, regardless of the category, so please give it a try. Tell me what you think. Do you agree with my assessment or think it's a waste of time?

Thank-you for your consideration.


Collecting NG's undiscovered gems has been a hobby of mine since 2005. I am curently posting them on my blog.

Feel free to check them out and tell me what you think.

Because he refuses to let me help him with these things.

Hi !

I think that D Blocks 2 is the best one. The difficulty increases little by little, and it is easy to understand.

I liked Iron Turtle too, but it was more a platformer for me.

Looking forward to the next category...

Headspin: Storybook is awesome! A simple but great idea with fantastic visuals. The gameplay was intuitive, the presentation stunning and the background music fitting. I loved the atmosphere. A really wonderful piece of art.

The one out of all the selections that I liked the best was fold. I liked how smooth the controls were and and it was a good bit more complex than some of the other entries and I liked that. I do have to say though that Headspin: Storybook was a close second due to how its art was presented.

Well, my favourite of that list is Blockade.
I enjoyed it quite a lot.
A little too much, maybe.
I mean...I almost enjoyed it, sexually.
Anywhoo, it's simple, yet it has lots of playability, and is quite challenging.
