Categories: Category 1: Retro Remakes
This year, to give more people an opportunity to enter and to win prizes, we’re dividing competition entries up into six seperate categories. In the run up to the competition we’ll be announcing each of these categories before the rules go live and the competition begins proper.
Lets get this thing started with Category 1.
Category 1: Retro Remakes
As you’d anticipate from a competition being ran by Retro Remakes, our first category is The Retro Remakes Category. In order to enter into the Retro Remakes Category you need to pick a game and remake it. Who’d have thunk it, eh? Naturally, we have a few things we’d like you to bear in mind. The whole point of a retro remake is to bring a classic game up to speed on modern hardware. Whilst we’re not going to say “no” to anyone who turns in a more “classic” looking game, we’d at least prefer it if you could improve on the original, fix any flaws if need be and make it worthwhile playing as a game in itself.
However, we will say no to anyone who attempts to enter any of the following titles into this category. Seriously, they’ve been done to death and we’re asking folks not to enter any of the titles below (I mean, really, so don’t do what some people did last time and not actually read this bit where we said don’t)
- Jet-Set Willy
- Pac Man
- Pong ( In ANY dimension )
- Space invaders
- Time Pilot
