1 - Genesis
2 - GLUF
3 - Gravibots

It's got to be Genesis for me. There aren't many homebrew scrolling shooters, and this one beats most from the commercial era.

I nearly included Gamex 1 or 2. It's a terrific idea but the trading aspect just doesn't quite tie everything together.

Some great games on here I think the best for me has to be the fully animated, multi-colour game Gandalf, closely followed by GLUF and Gloop Troops.

1 - Gandalf
2 - GLUF
3 - Gloop Troops

Weeell... that Game Of The Year, GLUF, has stormed it to the top spot, with 7 votes.

Second place goes to Gandalf, with 4 votes.

Gravibots is in third place, with 3 votes.

In joint fourth place, with 2 votes each: Gem Chaser and Genesis: Dawn Of The New Day.

Joint fifth place, 1 vote each: Gamex; Ghost Castle and Gloop Troops.

But proportionately, things are very different...

Gandalf 9
Gommy Medieval Defender 6
Ghost Castle 5
GLUF 5
Genesis: Dawn Of The New Day 4
Gem Chaser 3
Gravibots 2
Gimmick! Yumetaro Odyssey 1
Gloop Troops 1
