Daily Click Compo Winners!
News posted 1st January, 2003 by The Chris Street  
Well, we're sorry about the delays, but the results of the Daily Click Christmas Competition 2002 have been uploaded!

In Third Place: Christmas Shaft, created by Carl Lindqvist is based on an old game, and has Santa jumping from platform to platform down a mineshaft. Jumping on the blue ones adds to your health, jumping on the red ones subtracts from your health. A very addictive game, great stuff.

In Second Place: Junkmans entry "Santa's Quest" had the player, as Santa, killing all the bad guys in a Zelda-esque world. Personally I didn't think this was too hot, but it got there.

In First Place: ASHMAN and his Maniac Elf Beta. A high quality platform game which has you controlling an elf as he kills everything in sight. Loverly graphics and a great engine ensures that Ashman gets the award of 50 DC Points! Well done! A graphic will be made for Ashman in due time.

Thanks to everyone who entered, to see all the entries and what we thought of them, CLICK HERE!

I don't think a beta version should have won this. It's very good but you only play it once

Do'h :( I wish Christmas Shaft would have won!
Posted by ChrisB 1st January, 2003

I should have won. Maybe it's because I didn't send an entry in... ah well. Manic Elf looks delightfully crazy and colourful! Starting a download now...

christmas shaft would have been my choice for first.
Posted by Max 1st January, 2003

Wow, never thought I'd make it in second place! I even think that Christmas Shaft should have got a higher rank than my game. :) Congratulations Ashman, I hope that you'll finish your game! I want more than a single level of this to play, dag nammit!! :D Congrats to all others who submitted a game, too. :)

at least we didn't come last... :)
Posted by Nioreh 2nd January, 2003

Thanks to the great comments on Christmas Shaft! Question to admins: Should I add the game as a download on the daily click also? Or will it automatically be in my profile?
Posted by kreature 2nd January, 2003

Santas' Quest was, to put it simple, not good, and I can't see how it made it to the second place.
Posted by Steve T. 2nd January, 2003

Dude, shut up. It has great original music and is fun to play. The graphics weren't that good, but the gameplay was a lot better than most non-compo games.
