Tough call between Sword of Surtr and Space Game. Two completely different genres. I have to go with Surtr though, because it looks like a cross between Adventure, Zelda, and a touch of FF1 (the boat that takes you to other lands). Tyre Trax is also a fun one with nice graphics.

All great games, particularly liked Horizon Flip and Sword or Sutr but my best vote when to Space Game! :)

 

I really liked the power ups and the double ship with double shots - awesome gameplay and intermission scenes!

Horizon flip was definitely a challenge! Did you know it's based on "Horizon Switch '81" for the Nintendo Switch? I want to play that one!

No I'd like to try that too, I bet the Atari version would go great with the slick stick!

I was pretty surprised just to be nominated for Tyre Trax, to come runner up and to run the awesome SpaceGame a close second was beyond my expectations!

Congrats Muddy! Tyre Trax is an awesome game!

You are not giving yourself enough credit, then. :) It's a fun game with beautiful great graphics, and lots of attention to detail. I'm looking forward to a cart release.

I agree with Karl, it's well deserved! It has amazing graphics, great controls and high replayability. Congratulations on the nomination and coming in second! :-) Looking forward to the patch challenge.
