    Mini-Game Contest Poll

    [​IMG]

    It comes to this!


    All the competitors spent a month of hard work and endless toil making their mini games as fun and enjoyable as possible, but only 1 of the 12 contestants will win the 50 reputation points and the icon.

    This is where you, the average The Hive Workshop member decide.
    To vote, simply choose the options from the poll above and click submit.

    The Voting System
    The person who has the most votes when this poll closes wins.
    Contestants can not vote for themselves but can vote for others.
    Each person can vote for (at most) 4 people, but each vote means the vote is worth less score.
    Please state the reason why you voted for that person in this chain or your vote may be spoiled (lost).


    NOTE - If you like a mini-game, you are allowed to give the author a + reputation boost but be awair that, if you are the author, the reputation is not part of the contest.

    Battle for Erathor
    Use several spells and an arsenal of items and powerups, not to mention runes, to knock your foes into the flaming pit of death, located in the center of the map. You have a choice of many different powerups to increase your hero's health, knockback distance, knockback resistance, speed, along with items providing various changes to your already-existing spells. Has an 'anti-snowball effect' system, where players get lots of gold over time, but kills take away 5 gold from the killer. Battle on!




    Pirate Tag
    Yarr matey, land huggers ahead! Pirate Tag is a 10 player tag map, but not an ordinary one, in this you control your unit with the IJKL keys!

    In Pirate Tag the rules are simple, there are basicly 2 teams, pirates and land huggers.

    The goal for the Pirates is that they must catch the land huggers, once they catch one the land hugger gets turned into a pirate aswell. That goes on untill the last land hugger is caught. Last caught land hugger wins the round, gains a point (point system is broken in 1.3) and is chosen as next rounds first pirate. That cycle repeats untill someone gets the required amount of points to win the game (again, point system is broken which may affect the game to never end!).




    Team Battle Tanks
    Here is my Mini-Game entry. Team Battle Tanks.

    It is a team based mini game. Each team must have 2 players in order to function; 1 to drive the tank, the other to aim the cannon. The driver needs to dodge other cannons and pick up ammo for his gunner. supports up to 6 teams of 2! The last tank standing wins.




    Defend The House
    Hello, i really don't have time to finish it today, but well, here is the almost finished version of my Defend the House.
    Enjoy, ps: its REALLY hard to do alone, so if you wanna ''cheat'' >.< then,
    write ''Testgold'' and you get like 999999 gold. :)




    The Escape Plan
    In this game you have to use your memory to escape from a magic prison filled with teleport beacons that your have to use to move from cell to cell until your reach the exit. All of the runners have a special skill that you can use to help yourself, or disturb others. The game ends when three runners escape.




    The Boat Race
    Alright, here it is..

    The Boat Race! Beta

    Concept: The Boat Race is a race map, where you have to steer (slide) your boat, avoiding to run into shards, icebergs, hurricanes, mealstorms and the deep water. Entering hurricanes will make you sail slower and damage your boat slowly. Mealstorms will first suck your boat into them, and then tossing them away to certain death. Race up to 5 other players.

    Other Information:
    -The Triggers are in pure GUI
    -No AI is added
    -One game lasts for around 2-4 minutes

    Any suggestions or feedbacks would be greatly appreciated




    Upgrade Wars
    Get upgrades to improve you’re team’s spawn’s! Each upgrade counters others, attack counters HP, ect. Team 1 spawns footmen, team 2 spawns ghouls. Each ghoul\footmen has 1 attack and 1 health Point. Less often, crypt fiends\knights spawn, and least often, tanks\meat wagons spawn. Each player receives a random hero, to help them defeat enemies and earn gold for upgrades!
    NOTE: If there is so many spawns it is causing lag, player 1 can type -clear and all the units will die, causing lag to go away. You can also get mercenaries, but they aren’t any good unless they have upgrades, and by then the spawns are so good, they are mainly for creeping, but can be VERY useful as spawns too.




    HTW
    Hit the Whisp is an mor fun style game, where you have to click whisp not of your color to win the game. There are some ways to get faster or hinder other players in getting points. Have fun trying it out.




    Alien[R]
    This contestant was unable to finish his map due to more important matters requiring all his time and so dropped out.




    Barrelball
    This map plays similar to basketball, fused with dodgeball you have to throw the barrel into a crater*hoop* to score, and must hit 10 25 or 50 to win. The points needed to win are decided by player 1 who should be red, this map was made in my freetime after I saw this thread. You can punch people to knock them out of the game temporarily, as well as steal the barrel from them or a team mate, and of course lastly you can throw the barrel.




    Ping Wars
    The race is on.... to keep your ping down! Survive as long as you can by keeping your spawn numbers down! Do everything in your power to stay connected to win! It's survival of the fittest, and whoever has the most RAM....




    Legacy of Rep
    The story of 4 THW membs who found that THW was infected by some sort of virus.They now must venture in the twisted THW website and destroy the virus house.There are all sorts of traps from glaive to walking glaives and fire traps and spining blademasters.The mini-game signature is the slow missiles following the players.
    Charachters-
    Nearby Hermit-Your friendly NH here to destroy any virus that stands in its way.Has Hermit Walk and Cybernetic Rage.
    Wolve Rabid-the most renounced shaman in hive is here to correct the virus problem.Wolve is a ranged characther and has the Ignore ability and delete tress wich deletes trees and transforms them into healing wards.
    Ralle-the chieftain is here to secure his beloved website.Having the bear form ability he is more powerfull in stats than the others.
    Rui-Rui is always on the lookout for spammers and viruses and he ventures with us having the multi-Rui ability wich creates 10 illusions of himself,and the Mass teleport ability wich allows him to reach the others in no time.
    The characthers were made from the hives membs(their avatars and names)
    The missiles have a very beautifull effect,and the traps keep the game more fun.Altough hard on 1 player the map is easy in 4.Please notice that ive not used any form of imported files ,and that is very good by my opinion.




    Closing Date
    This poll will close on the 30/07/07, after which the winner will be announced.



    Good luck to all contestants and for the last time, may the best mini-game WIN!

    Yeah that was heaps of fun, a really good crowd we got there who quickly got the hang of things.

    Anyways to everyone, 1.4b has been released without the serious bugs of 1.3! Try that instead, get it from the map section!

    Ok heres where my votes go, in order...

    1. Pirate Tag - It looks great, is easy/learn to play and is a lot of fun... aka is exactly what a mini-game should be...
    2. The Escape Plan - A nice idea and well done, requires some thinking and is fairly quick.
    3. Upgrade Wars - Quite fun and has a lot of potential, unfortunately its not very well done (revealing players >.<)

    On another note, Battle for Erathor would have got my vote if it had not been protected...
