Celebrating five years of coding competitions

GBAX 2007 entries are now online. Full details can be found here.

15 Days Coding Competition

Welcome to the GBAX 15 Days Coding Competition entries list page. There is a total of 26 entries for this competition and the overall standard of them (in my opinion) is very good.




The public voting is now over and the winners are:


1st Place



Entry: Gloop
Author: Toris
Game Type: Puzzle

Craigs Comment: Lemmings like puzzle game only with water! Pointer could move a touch faster, but its very addictive. I think the level select spoils it a bit, it should just start on level one

Guyfawkes Comment: A very good game similar in style to Lemmings. Agree with Craig about the level select as it could make the game easier if stuck on a certain level.

Squad 14

Entry: Squad 14
Author: Metellius
Game Type: Shoot Em Up

Craigs Comment: One number - 1942! Great looking gp32 clone, smooth, hundreds of sprites, most of those are bullets - mega hard!

Guyfawkes Comment: A very good game with loads of action on the screen. No music or sfx though. Where's the infinite health cheat? :)

3rd Place



Entry: Giro
Author: Franz Lankes
Game Type: Driving

Craigs Comment: Wooo.. the GP32 does mode7, lovely rendered graphics make this look stunning, but the game itself isn't all that playable. Full marks for visuals though, amazing.

Guyfawkes Comment: Like the tunnel game, graphically very impressive but needs some more work on the gameplay. Another game to show off what the GP32 can do.

Congratulations to the winners and also to everyone that entered

Craigs Comment: Great slick interface, nice sound, multiple characters & funny visuals make this a well made game.

Tunnel Game 3D Tech Demo

Entry: Tunnel Game 3D Tech Demo

Guyfawkes Comment: Like Craig said, graphically very impressive, needs some more work on the gameplay and this would be a very good game. Something to show off to your friends to what a GP32 can do ;) BTW: This was coded from scratch in 15 days so well done SDW!!
