Stick Ninja or AXLE...
Yeah same here, I would've voted for Tag or Cube Droid except they were pretty hard for me :/


Spoiler For funny life mathematics:
1. ROMANCE MATHEMATICS
Smart man + smart woman = romance
Smart man + dumb woman = affair
Dumb man + smart woman = marriage
Dumb man + dumb woman = pregnancy
2. OFFICE ARITHMETIC
Smart boss + smart employee = profit
Smart boss + dumb employee = production
Dumb boss + smart employee = promotion
Dumb boss + dumb employee = overtime
3. SHOPPING MATH
A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs.
A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't need.
4. GENERAL EQUATIONS & STATISTICS
A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.
A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.
A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.
A successful woman is one who can find such a man.
5. HAPPINESS
To be happy with a man, you must understand him a lot and love him a little.
To be happy with a woman, you must love her a lot and not try to understand her at all.
6. LONGEVITY
Married men live longer than single men do, but married men are a lot more willing to die.
7. PROPENSITY TO CHANGE
A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.
A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, and she does.
8. DISCUSSION TECHNIQUE
A woman has the last word in any argument.
Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

Girls = Time * Money (Girls are a combination of time and money)
Time = Money (Time is money)
Girls = Money squared (So, girls are money squared)
Money = sqrt(Evil) (Money is also the root of all evil)
Girls = sqrt(Evil) squared (So, girls are the root of all evil squared)
Girls = Evil (Thus, girls are evil)
*Girls=Evil credit goes to Compynerd255*

Yeah, sorry for my lack of instructions; I was too rushed.  Don't worry about not understanding it when the real release comes; there's going to be an in-game tutorial and everything once I get around to it.
As for an easy level, I think 3 is probably the easiest. ;D

My favorite is Tag by far.  It's a classic, well thought-out, fun, difficult puzzle game that I can see myself replaying whenever I feel like playing a game on my calc.  Move over Graviter and Psychee, there's a new puzzle king in town. ^-^

Edit:  Is it just me, or does Crabcake seem pretty unstable?

Wait, stickninja crashed your calc? sorry guys....haha

Also: to anyone who is trying to compile the source (hi judges); I realized I left out one of the include files necessary to compile it....To the judges I'm going to ask for some leeway here because I was trying to get it in on time before my computer with time restrictions automatically logged me out =/

It won't let me play. It just takes me to a map made up of random parts of RAM. :(
There's something wrong with the menu.

Every game I've played with crabcake froze with wabbit, and I had to reset.  But it still works on the 2nd try.

So, I'm not a judge, but here my review for all the entries:

Spoiler For Spacky Emprise (buttsfredkin):
Originality: 4/5
Standard platformer game, but with lots of interesting twists.
Fun Factor: 3/5
Sorta hard (for me) and gets frustrating after a while.
Graphics: 4/5
I can tell what everything is, and they fit the classic platformer feel.
Playability/Speed: 5/5
I haven't encountered major bugs or the like.
Documentation: 2/5
Readme doesn't tell much.  And we have to go search for Crabcake.  If someone doesn't know what crabcake is, that's a problem.  Include a link?
Total: 18/25
Good game in general.
Spoiler For AXLE (tloz128):
Originality: 4/5
Doors, collectibles, enemies you jump on, all part of an amazing platformer reminding everyone of Mario.
Fun Factor: 5/5
Challenging but not too frustrating.
Graphics: 5/5
Amazing monochrome graphics.
Playability/Speed: 3/5
Speed is fine, but the controls lag slightly, making the game sort of unresponsive.  Also didn't work the first time.
Documentation: 4/5
Tells everything I need to know about the game.  Nothing too fancy.
Total: 21/25
Excellent platformer with amazing graphics.
Spoiler For Fancy Pants Adventures World 1 Demo (Deep Thought):
Originality: 4/5
While this is a port, no one has every done it before, AFAIK.
Fun Factor: 3/5
The physics make it really interesting, but gets boring after a while.
Graphics: 3/5
The character sprites look good, the levels are just lines, but that all they really need.
Playability/Speed: 3/5
A couple of frustrating bugs, the speed is great though.
Documentation: 4/5
Tells everything you need to know.
Total: 17/25
Has great potential.  Hopefully will be continued after contest.
Spoiler For Nymless Demo (Freyaday):
Originality: 5/5
Very creative concept.
Fun Factor: 2/5
As with FPA, the physics are great, but gets boring after a while.
Graphics: 2/5
Not much, although that's kinda the point of the game.  :P
Playability/Speed: 5/5
Speed is perfect, no bugs.
Documentation: 5/5
Even has ASCII art explaining the sprites!
Total: 19/25
Give it more time, and we got something great!
Spoiler For Stick Ninja (squidgetx):
Originality: 4/5
Still sorta standard, but very well thought out.
Fun Factor: 5/5
The perfect balance between difficulty and fun.
Graphics: 5/5
Just take one look at the screenshots...
Playability/Speed: 3/5
Speed is good, but took me a long while to actually set up the game.
Documentation: 4/5
Explains controls well.
Total: 21/25
Spoiler For Escape (yunhua98):

Originality: 4/5
Once again, a port, but a very original port.  :P  The graphics however aren't so original.
Fun Factor: 4/5
Too hard for me.  XD

Graphics: 666/5
OMG amazing!!!1!!1oneone!!!11!
Playability/Speed: 3492/5

Thanks for the interesting read. :)  I hope you'll find Cube Droid more enjoyable when it has all 36 levels in the final release. ;D  It'll also have documentation that I didn't write in 2 minutes.

Yo everyone who is having issues with StickNinja; resend the application, and make sure the appvar is in archive and you have at least 3081 bytes of free RAM. There shouldn't be any problems if you followed the setup instructions in the documentation

Alright, I've played all of the games and I'd like to give my thoughts.

Spacky Emprise:
Pros: Good running animation.
Cons: Enemies falling from the ceiling were annoying.

AXLE:
Pros: I made it.
Cons: I made it.

Fancy Pants Adventures World 1 Demo:
Pros: The physics were very nice.
Cons: It sometimes felt a bit unresponsive and was difficult to tell where you were going.

Nymless Demo:
Pros: The concept is original.
Cons: There's not a whole lot to do yet.

Stick Ninja: It didn't work on my calculator.

Escape:
Pros: A very fun and an overall good puzzle game.
Cons: It's been done before, and it could use more polishing.

Tag:
Pros: Original, very polished, lots of levels.
Cons: Controls felt a bit slippery at times.

Dimension Shift:
Pros: Original and good graphics.
Cons: It's a bit difficult to select things in the menu.

Easy Game: The name says it all.

Cube Droid:
Pros: Very nice looking graphics and an overall great port of the flash game.
Cons: Not too many levels.


Overall the games were very good. :)
Spoiler For shameless self promotion:
Might I point out the excellent level design in AXLE?
Naaa... Na Nah Na Nana Na Nah... Hey Jude!

Thanks, but I also thought it didn't look that polished.  :(  What do you suggest?  (Noticing AXLE is VERY polished.  ;))

TBH, I couldn't find a whole lot wrong with it.  I was thinking maybe some character animations or something.
