Welcome to the comp.sys.sinclair Crap Games Compo 2007. I'm hosting the competition this year. You may know me, I came last in last year's compo with a simulation of "possibly the world's most boring job".
I thought I'd kick off the 2007 CSSCGC by reviewing some professional crap games. Why don't you take a look? It might give you some ideas. Come back here when you're ready.
Ah, there you are. Let's crack on, shall we?
Basically the idea is to write the worst game possible for a Sinclair computer. It is expected that most entries will be for the Spectrum and written in BASIC. If you are out of ideas, you might want to look up some previous compos or consult So you Wanna Write A Crap Game...?
You have until extended until 22nd December 2007, 23:59 GMT to get your entries in. This will hopefully allow the results to be announced before next year's competition starts.
The address for submissions is firstname.lastname@example.org. Entries will appear on the 2007 Crap Game Finder page, with at least the title and probably a screenshot and short "back of inlay" description. Proper reviews will come later, perhaps much later. Whether you will be able to download them from there as we go along and whether there will be a public element to the vote has yet to be decided, but will probably be "no" on both counts as I like to build the suspense.
If you can't be bothered to read any of that or play them all, congratulations go to David Mackenzie for Dobsonic Defendor who receives a crap prize (quite literally a piece of crap, albeit one that has been recycled into something a bit useful).
