Okay, the Light Bot is awesome, controlling your own robot, may look weird but you have to see the gif and READ the readme, YOU REALLY HAVE to!

However, the other one is simpler, but still LightBot is better, for a week time and homescreen games they're both awesome, but Light Bot will get my vote :)

Wow, I looked at the source for VDodge, and it was really minimalistic...
That being said, I tried to do something similar about a year ago, and it was much slower and bulkier, so kudos to you!

You ported Lightbot to the calc?!
Voted for the sheer awesomeness: programming a game about programming a robot.
My website: Currently boring.

Projects:
Axe Interpreter
   > Core: Done
   > Memory: Need write code to add constants.
   > Graphics: Rewritten.  Needs to integrate sprites with constants.
   > IO: GetKey done.  Need to add mostly homescreen IO stuff.
Croquette:
   > Stomping bugs
   > Internet version: On hold until I can make my website less boring/broken.

Both games look great! However Light Bot gets my vote because it's more challenging than VDodge.

Thanks guys :D VDodge is awesome ^^ I didn't notice at first, but the scrolling is in the *opposite* direction from every other game i've ever seen.  Very technically well built :)

/\yeah, that kind of speed without using disp is pretty impressive
however, i went with light-bot just because of originality

also: it's very hard to program without if statements...

Note that Light Bot is not an entirely original topic, in the readme it talks about how it’s highly based on a flash game with the same name.  It’s not a direct port, but it has similar elements.

But thanks anyway :D Heh yeah programing like that is indeed tricky.  My overall score is 160 though ^-^

Those are both great entries :)

Vdodge: Nice gameplay and it's surprisingly fast considering how many objects are moving around. However, the collision detection is iffy (You can get out of impossible situations just by moving at the time) and the game lacks a menu.

Lightbot: The menu is really well done. I also like the gameplay a lot. This might be a bit excessive, but I think it's more fun than the flash version.

I'm gonna have to try those asap :)
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Yeah it is really simplistic but hey, i had like an hour's worth of time I think (Stupid teachers not giving us the study periods that we were promised)

Menu, oops, didn't know we needed one.

Thanks everyone for the compliments! And Builderboy, what do you mean by opposite?

Edit: Most of my time on it was trying to increase speed.

/\builder was referring to the fact that most homescreen games of that sort use disp to quickly shift all the characters. however, that only works when the objects have to move towards the top of the lcd.

HomeScreen Games like these are games that Omnimaga should be proud of, since homescreen games are usually not good, but these are QUITE impressive :D
