  1. It's not ineligible in Kaz Kompo! You are probably confusing Kaz Kompo rules and ZeroPage Homebrew's Atari Awards rules.
  2. Thanks, Ingo! Only five? Maybe tomorrow you could find a few other games that deserve some points?
  3. Like I wrote a few messages earlier, "License Plates" come from BASIC Tenliners contest, so they were announced in the appropriate thread: There is no "one place with everything". We try at AtariOnline.pl and we have special pages dedicated to specific years, but it's hard to follow all sites, Facebook groups etc., it's a big effort, so we're not always up-to-date. Maybe there exist one or two lesser known games that we missed in 2019 list, who knows? True. In the years 2014-2017 I tried to write carefully on AtariOnline about every single released (but not covered on AtariOnline yet) game on the main page before starting Kaz Kompo, which caused KK editions to be postponed permanently (the delay grew over the years). We had to change it.
  4. Sure, we accept all votes And we would love to know what are YOUR personal gems from 2019, @davidcalgary29 One more announcement: I'd like to remind you that this year we have a special prize for the person who will add the most interesting summary of scored games, who will explain in the most interesting way the choises he/she had made. So - if you want to get the first prize - write more than just the points The first prize is the full official "Jim Slide XL" game box with cartridge, disk and 2 posters, you may see the photos in this thread: You may find more details about the prizes in the rules (see the first post).
  5. This is the list of 10-liners from BASIC Tenliners contest included in KK2019: Dragon Trainer (Jason "8Bit 1337" Gruetzmacher) - PUR-120 category, Turbo BASIC XL Floody Bot (Kevin Savetz) - 2nd place in EXTREM-256 category, Turbo BASIC XL Hubbub (Eric Henneke) - PUR-80 category, Atari BASIC Lander (Kevin Savetz) - 2nd place in PUR-120 category, Turbo BASIC XL License Plates (Victor "Vitoco" Parada) - PUR-80 category, Atari BASIC Mini Bros (Victor "Vitoco" Parada) - 1st place in EXTREM-256 category, FastBasic 3.4 Missile ("Etom000001") - PUR-120 category, Atari BASIC Missile10 (Bill Kendrick) - EXTREM-256 category, Turbo BASIC XL Neverending Sorry (Paweł "Pirx" Kalinowski) - EXTREM-256 category, Turbo BASIC XL Pixelated Puzzle (Victor "Vitoco" Parada) - 1st place in PUR-120 category, Turbo BASIC XL Poke Pig (Kevin Savetz) - PUR-120 category, Turbo BASIC XL ReactorX (Jeff "jeffpiep" Piepmeier) - 3rd place in PUR-120 category, FastBasic 4.0rc UFO Attack! (Victor "Vitoco" Parada) - PUR-80 category, Atari BASIC We also included in KK2019 "Mini Kaboom" game by Victor "Vitoco" Parada - it's a variant of "UFO Attack!" from BASIC Tenliners contest Other 10-liners: "Minilife", "Mini Character Editor", "Garden" by Kevin Savetz and "Amen [BREAK]" by Bill Kendrick were excluded as they are not really games. I agree that some of the games are not presented widely on AtariAge, maybe some of the creators should care more about the reception of their work? Wasteland? Actually, the creator of Wasteland announced the game on AtariAge (although not in A8 forum)... And then there was a thread created by skr:
  6. I try to encourage everyone to play all the games, but it's not always possible. If someone has time to go through all games, will find all the gems, no matter what we would write in this thread But if someone has less time and is overwhelmed by the number of 79 games, the shorter list could be a real help - it's kind of a strong recommendation from other voters, where to start from (those 20 games received more than 90 percent of all points).
  7. For those who don't have time to play all 79 games - these are 20 entries that received the biggest number of points so far (in alphabetical order): Abyssus Adventure Ponies Berks Four Block on Legs: First Steps Castle Defender Dungeon Hunt II Eel Ecurb Fruity Pete Gravity Worms Great Green Adventure 2: Prologue Imogen Jet Set Willy 2019 Last Disk Mister Hoppe Monty on the Run Moon Patrol Redux Rescue Expedition, The Space Fortress Omega Star Vagrant Wasteland
  8. Thanks, Yautja and Carlsson! OK. Just one thing - I hope you realise, that this is Czech version of Millionaire in the package (the one from 2019), the other language versions were published in 2018 and we'll come back to them in future Kaz Kompo 2018? I understand your pain. There's still a few days left, maybe you would find some time to play several other games (not necessarily ~45) and possibly modify your vote.
  9. Thanks, @ggn! And some of AAge members have already voted on AtariOnline (@Poison, @CharlieChaplin, @Philsan, @therealbountybob). So who's next? The fight is fierce, the point differences between entries are in some cases very small, your vote may be decisive!
  10. And... well... I'm sorry for you that you have to read all those "rz" and "sz" live

  14. Thanks, @therealbountybob, I've just created the official KK2019 thread here:
  15. Dear Atarians, on behalf of AtariOnline.pl I would like to invite you to take part in traditional Kaz Kompo contest Help us decide which 8-bit Atari game published last year was the best. The full list of games with screenshots and links (as PDF file) is attached to this post. The package with game files can be found here, the auxiliary spreadsheet with the titles can be found here. You may read the rules below. So... play the games, have fun and vote! Kaz Kompo 2019 rules: 1. All games for 8-bit Atari published between January 1st and December 31st last year can participate in our competition. No matter if they are commercial or freeware games, awarded in other competitions or not, running only on Atari with 16kB or 1MB, do they require any extensions, cards, etc. It is important if their authors published them as completed, or declare abandonment of work, or the context indicates that they have abandoned the further development of the game. We created a list of these games on a regular basis throughout the year, and it was verified before the competition by the team: AdamW (@+Adam+), Kaz (@Kaz atarionline.pl), Rastan. We are unlikely to miss something, but of course possible. Anyway - let us know, we can add the title to the list. 2. Anyone can vote in the following ways: - adding your comment under this post - by sending Kaz an email to [email protected] email address - on the AtariOnline.pl website under this article We will try to confirm voices by email from people we do not know, and if it fails, they will not be included in the counting. The voting results (nickname, points) will then be public, so that everyone can see who and how they voted. No twists, scams or ambiguities. 3. Authors or co-authors of games participating in the competition can vote for their works. Also, game publishers can vote for the games they publish. 4. Everyone can vote for ten games, but their order should be given, because points will be awarded in this way: for 1st place - 10 points, for 2nd place - 9 points ... , for 10th place - 1 point. All points from voters will be summarized and the ranking of games will be determined on this basis. It should be emphasized that we score up to 10 games. If you vote for less than 10 titles, then we will count the points to the last position only. If you vote for more than 10 games points will count up to 10 games only. 5. The voting will end at midnight on January 25/26, 2020 (Saturday) - midnight in the time zone where the voter is located. 6. The prize in the competition is to win first place - the title of the best game of 2019 and the opportunity to use the "golden" logo of the competition. Also the second and third games can use the title and badge of the KazKompo competition - silver and bronze respectively. As in previous years, we do not expect prizes for the authors, the biggest gratification is taking a good place, or receiving points from voters. 7. For those who votes (which is a specific effort considering the number of items), as usual, we have prizes that we will distribute after the end of the competition. And they will be: the unique and expensive official "Jim Slide XL" game box with cartridge and disk (funded by AdamW), not-to-buy cassette with the game "Monty on the Run" (funded by Rastan) and the book "Oni migają tymi kolorami w sposób profesjonalny" ("They flash these colors in professional way") with the authors' autographs (funded by Piotr Marecki) - this is the story of Tomasz "TDC" Cieślewicz about the beginnings of the Polish demoscene and the Polish gamedev, in Polish language. The first prize will be awarded to the person who adds the most interesting summary of scored games to the scoring. Therefore, it is worth adding a sentence or two about a given game. The second and third prizes will be traditionally drawn. We hope this encourages you to vote. Traditionally, as every year, the Larek's program will draw: 10 REM KONKURS DLA GLOSUJACYCH 20 REM KAZ KOMPO 2019 30 REM PROGRAM LOSUJACY ZWYCIEZCE 40 REM -------------------------- 50 GRAPHICS 0:LIST 10,40:? 60 ? "PODAJ ILOSC GLOSUJACYCH: "; 70 INPUT IG 80 ? 90 REM ROZGRZANIE GENERATORA 100 X=RND(0) 110 REM MIESZANIE, MIESZANIE 120 Y=INT(RND(0)*500)+500 130 FOR Z=0 TO Y 140 ? " ";:X=RND(0):? CHR$(30);" ";CHR$(30); 150 NEXT Z 160 REM LOSOWANIE 170 X=INT(RND(0)*IG+1) 180 ? "WYLOSOWANO NUMER: ";X 190 END 8. If it happens that a game from 2019 is not included in the list, you can vote for it, but you must clearly indicate it to complete the list after our verification. 9. All doubts and problems are resolved authoritatively by us: AdamW, Kaz, Rastan. This is to make quick and efficient decisions. And as every year, we ask for your understanding for such rules - there is no need to create excessively strict regulations where it is primarily to be fun. KK2019games.pdf
