When toaster couldn't make it, I was brought in at the last second to test 'em all out. I recruited CBG and we tested all 20. (CBG was up till the birds started singing in the UK) I then lost some of my scores, and I went through ALL 20 AGAIN. So I saw them all twice.

Honestly, with the artistic and originality categories, the only question was who comes in third. Spazzy's 2 maps were miles ahead. (My fps was higher on his maps too)
I had a tie on my scoresheet for third.
Meteorite had the highest playability, I thought his maps were very well thought out.

I also liked bootleg by sid6.7, for originality.

I gave theobvioustrap points for using a plugin, which I was able to test, I'd like to see that one in action to test better for playability.

Flying Popcorn scored high on artistic and originality, but low on playability. If he had done better there, He may have gotten third from me.
Take a look at my Defender game mode concept.

Thinking is not an automatic process. A man can choose to think or to let his mind stagnate, or he can choose actively to turn against his intelligence, to evade his knowledge, to subvert his reason. If he refuses to think, he courts disaster: he cannot with impunity reject his means of perceiving reality.
