Treasure Hunt 2010 - Platformers 2010-11-18 16:55:22


I've survived 21 pages and 1000+ suggestions and now have a list of 250 finalists for the 2010 Treasure Hunt. I'll wait until the end to announce the winners (to buy myself more time), but for now I'll kick things off with the first batch of noteworthy games.

Play as many as you can then reply with your favorites and why!

Games - Platformers

Games - Run 'n Gun

Leapy Louie and Mario Suicide have both gotten frontpage.
Unless you put them there will perusing the list, doesn't that void their entrance?

Yeah I front paged some stuff WHILE going through the Treasure Hunt just because otherwise a lot of it still never gets the recognition it should get. It does sorta ruin the thrill of the final list though. :(

Mario Suicide really wasn't that great.

My favorite so far is Ascent. I haven't played them all yet, but ascent is the cleanest and most complete one so far. Its obvious the programmer put a lot of time and effort into it. Not to mention its really addictive...

I really hope that "Tower of Heaven" wins. That game was absolutely phenomenal.

Dear tom how do i get medals from playing flash games. p.s. i got them but it wont appear in the medals section????????????????

Response to Treasure Hunt 2010 - Platformers 2010-11-18 19:27:26


I would say the best was PushPlatformer, it had a unique stlye of play that also was just alot of fun to do, I liked making the weird forcefield thing. Forest Warrior was also a lot of fun, and the 8bit mix of Eye of the Tiger made it that much cooler. One Step Back had a slightly philosophical message which is relatively uncommon in flash games, and had quite a few unique characteristics in the gameplay as well as a clean look. Lastly, although Ghosts Stole My Puppy was very similar to Luigi's Mansion, I found it to be a lot of fun and it had some funny items. Overall, I would say PushPlatformer was my favorite in this category, though.

I would like to point out that nominee The MotherShip was most likely not created by its submitter. It was made by FreeOnlineGames.com, who usually post their games under the fogNG account

I liked One Step Back. The concept of the game was very original.


The deeper you delve, the more strategizing is involved.

It's been frontpaged before so it won't.

Anyways I only played a couple but Where Is 2010? is my current favorite of the bunch. Great finds by whoever posted them.

One Step Back is definitely the standout. It does a great job of communicating its artsy ideas through gameplay, its intended meaning is clear and unpretentious, and it actually offers a fun mindbending challenge unlike some art games which only offer an experience. It's a sexy little game.
