Vote for the best graphics in a game released in 2017 (excluding loading screens, for which there will be a separate poll).

You have UP TO THREE VOTES.

This is really 'arrrdddd.

Sword of IANNA has to be up there, probably my #1.

Crystal Dizzy 2017 has amazing graphics, but they are using the original game as a loose framework.

Vallation would be my top choice for 2016, and though the 128k version has nice additions they aren't enough to make me vote for it twice.

So that leaves:

Ooze, Sophia, Sorceress, Code zero, Circuitry, Incredible Shrinking Professor.

Hmmm

It's probably time to call a result on this and the parallel polls soon. I"ll close them in about a week to allow for any further votes.

The results of the best-of-2017 polls are as follows:

Best game... The Sword of Ianna
Best graphics... The Sword of Ianna
Best sound... The Sword of Ianna

So a clean sweep for The Sword of Ianna - not exactly a shock result.

The top 3 in each category were as follows:

Best game
1st The Sword of Ianna
2nd Crystal Kingdom Dizzy 2017
3rd= Ooze
3rd= Pixel Quest 2000

Best graphics
1st The Sword of Ianna
2nd Crystal Kingdom Dizzy 2017
3rd Vallation 128K

Best sound
1st The Sword of Ianna
2nd= Crystal Kingdom Dizzy 2017
2nd= Horace and the Robots

Unfortunately I do not seem to be able to close the polls. Could one of the mods do that?

Also I had planned to do a poll for best loading screen, but am now not going to get round to it. If someone else would like to do it, I have already drawn up a list of loading screens from 2017 (both new games and loading screen remakes), but really it would also be necessary to post images of the screens. If anyone is interested in setting that up, let me know and I'll post the list I have.

Wow, we finished second. The Sword of Ianna is a game which is not shame to lose the first place to, really great job :)
And I must say that Craig Stevenson has produced some of the best ZX game graphics I've ever seen for Vallation.
