This page can be used to help competition judges enter their judgement results for each of the entries in the the Atari Lynx 30th Birthday Programming Competition. Judges are asked to play each of the competition entries and award points in a number of criteria below.
There are four "core" criteria - Creativity, Implementation, Gameplay and Replay. Each criteria is described individually and is scored between 1 and 10.
How new and original is the concept and theme/style for this game?
Effectiveness and quality of the graphics, sound and music used in the game.
How enjoyable/fun the game is to play, taking into account game/level design and controls.
How addictive and replay-able the game is.
A special criteria score is used to adjust the final values of the "core" criteria. The core criteria will be multiplied by the value of the completion criteria and then added together to get the final score for the game.
How close to a finished product this game is on a scale of 1 to 10. Low scores indicate the game requires a large amount of extra work to complete, high scores indicate that the game is ready for physical release and distribution.
