I have chosen judges at random, and here they are.
1. Maximum of 5 megs file size, must be ZIPPED (Not RAR'ed)
2. Must include source code, in addition to a compiled version. Any entry lacking either will be disqualified.
3. The game MUST use the Default Platform movement for the player character. Fixing the engine is allowed, but custom Platform movement is prohibited.
4. The game must contain more than 5 levels, and have a playtime of over 15 minutes (average).
5. Graphics must be original.
In sticking with the theme of where I pirated the the news post picture from (24), and sticking with traditional gaming cliche's; the enemy must be terrorists, and their plot moust involve something called "Device X" (what this actually is is up to you). Taliban, Green Peace, etc...it doesn't matter, but they MUST be terrorists; HUMAN terrorists. Obviously, as I'm telling you you have to use the standard platform engine, the game needs to be a platformer. It can be mario-ish, contra-ish; it doesn't matter, as long as it's a platformer.
Coding 10/100 *Admittedly, this is going to be a loose category; we won't detract for normal Default Platform bugs (though fixing them could score you some points)
Padding 10/100 *What the judges use this for is up to them
The rules don't mean you can't have tanks and such. I just didn't want to get entries where aliens were the enemies or anything. If you want to go cutesy Mario style, then do it. Want to run and gun like contra, then do it. The style of the game is totally up to you. Just cause it's terrorists doesn't mean anything, it's no different from aliens in contra or goomba's in Mario. They're just enemies.
Now, err, does it count as default if we use the default engine for the gravity, but set the speed of the player to 0, and have left and right sensors around the character for left and right movement? Hold on, here's what I mean.
