The contest is over! Thank you to everyone who entered and a special thanks to Tom Fulp for all his support.
I've spent all morning playing through every level one last time just to clarify my list! Well, I'm pleased to announce the winners:
Demon King's Lair - 00Nick00
This guy made some seriously awesome levels, there were a lot of them to choose from but Demon King's Lair really made me smile, well thought out, challenging and fun.
Spike Tower - DarkFG
DarkFG made several levels, all of them were pretty damn good, although a little unforgiving! His first, Spike Tower was an aggravating challenge, but nicely presented and I felt a sense of accomplishment after beating it!
Secret Passage - Plasmarift
This final level was submitted just before the deadline, lucky you! It provided a challenge, was quite fun and had some interesting bits and pieces, the only thing I will say is it could've benefited from some music!
Now that brings me on to....
HalfStepTides - Remembering the Blue Bomber
The first person to actually take advantage of the NES colour palette in the game and actually make it into a proper level as apposed to just a sculpture, very cool sir!
Henrymore - Dark Level
Henry made a good chunk of levels, you could clearly see him getting better and better each one he made, Dark Level had me pulling my hair out, it's a tad flawed but clearly had some time and thought put into it, well done son.
Blobalkis - All
What can I say? Abobo, Link and Luigi.. IT'S MY COMPETITION I DO WHAT I WANT > : ( *Ahem* seriously though, very cool someone took full advantage of the tiles and didn't even use the NES palette to make a couple of them.
Congratulations to the winners and the runners up, I'll drop you all a pm letting you know you've won soon enough, add me on skype! The sooner you do, sooner we can start work on your stuff :) My username can be found on my page.
Thank you again to everyone who entered, we had some great entries and look forward to Sky Jives coming soon!
