No, I meant the search results page just has a generic URL. You can't cut and paste the URL into the forums to link people to the same search results.
Doh! Soz :)

Yes, a search URL that takes search terms in the query string would be awesome.

Stormfinch is great. The random attack waves keep the game fresh and add a lot of replay value. The enemy-direction-radar allows for more dynamic attack waves without being unfair to the player. The autofire spares your wrist and let you focus on the charge shot. Great bosses. Just a lot of polish. Then there's the graphics; great looking and inspired all in glorious multicolour. One of the best of 2015 for sure.

Strange Kitchen shouldn't really be on this list, it was released in 2016. I did release a "Beta" version in 2015 to show what I'd done with Charade though, but it wasn't responsive enough to play properly and I didn't "officially" release it as such.
And what's wrong with Word Blaster eh?! That's a game I did release in 2015. OK, it's not a classic, & not really a contender for best homebrew game but I enjoyed making it ! :lol:

Ah I can relax now. It wouldn't be a game of the year poll without one or two things left out :mrgreen:

I think Castlevania is the only thing that doesn't apply to here!

I've realised my top vote isn't the game I thought it was, I had Knightmare 1 in mind. Oops.
#2 was impressive but didn't float my boat in the same way.

So these would be my top 3 now:

1 - The Tales of Grupp
2 - Stormfinch
3 - Rescue Lander
