The year is reaching its end which means a lot of minigame compos will reach their deadline aswell.

What about a minigame compo for B4A with a Christmas based theme for the game(s)?

A month left to create a minigame which should be enough.

Rules could be...

- Christmas/Winter themed
- Made in B4A (source need to be provided as proof)
- Made by yourself (not taking a flappy bird or match3 game example from this forum and just replace some gfx)
- Game may not be released before by you on Google Play (as in no quick game recycling by using new gfx to fit the theme)
- Filesize limit not set yet (5Mb?)
- Deadline reached, the poll is online.
- Voting from Dec 28 - Jan 1st via forum poll?
- Attenders/Winners might know the result on Jan 1 2015

Erel knowing, he might throw in some B4i+B4A,B4i license(s) or something for the winner or top3.

Erel is so kind to donate 3 B4i + hosted Mac builder licenses for the top 3.


So it's always worth attending for that, the fun , the challenge or to explore the other side of app building (games).

See it as promoting your skills and the possibilities of B4A.

@RandomCoder thanks for the thorough review. I couldnt reproduce the bug you or sorex mentioned so well, not fixed. In any case I plan to upload the grid library used in the game (as well as the source), maybe more people will be able to test it and I can find what is wrong. Currently waiting on a wifi adapter so im not connected to the interwebs.

Looks like we got a tie on the top, although it does seem people are changing their votes as its all going up and down.
Good luck to everyone.

yes, tds. It ended a few minutes ago.

it seems we have a winner triplet!

I hoped more people would've voted to give a more realistic result, it's like maybe 25-30 people voted out of the 66.000+ forum members.

Thanks to everyone that attended.

I hope someone else can arrange a competition like this later this year.

Oh and congrats to the winners!

yes, that one is nice (but hard to play).

Maybe a lot of people saw it as a game that was about ready and just got retiled but some others did that aswell.

Maybe we should make it less open and force people to do a specific game with given objects etc
which limits game/code recycling possibilities a lot.

Hi ilan,

I never progammed before for any Apple product, so to reply to your generous implied offer .. no the license it's not the only missing element.
Btw, I think it's at all possible to convert your prize to an extend license period.. just ask Erel about it.

Congrats, again.
