The 1.44 Floppy Disk Event at RPGMaker.net is over and it was a success! Not only it proved that file size is in no way a limit to creativity but also brought 26 new games to life of all kinds of styles and colors. From games made with the classic RPG Maker 2000 and 2003 to GameBoy roms with GB Studio, to even games made for browsers and in custom engines, you'll find everything here! But only one of them can be called the best of the best and have the honor of receiving the coveted "Golden Floppy". Which game is gonna win? Let's go through each one to find out. We are going from worst to best, as a sort of "Top Games" list.
This list has an element of subjectivity to it, as the games were ranked by how much I personally enjoyed each one. My opinion may differ from yours, so feel free to discuss your thoughts on the event page! And as a reminder: no matter in what position your game ended up, you should be proud of yourself! Not everyone can finish a game in two weeks and much less with a strict size limit. A big congratulations to all the participants!
Before we start, we're gonna divide the games into two categories: "Finished" and "Unfinished". The big factor that decides in which category a game will be is its ending. If the game ends abruptly or feels as if the main plot was unresolved it will be marked as "Unfinished". Games must feel like a complete package to be considered "Finished". Games in this category will not receive "The Master Copy" achievement. So, without further ado, let's start!

I don't really have any cons to talk about, the game set out an objective and it accomplished it. My only gripes are very minor like how it's hard to find the way sometimes and needing a bit more clarity on what's an obstacle in the pushing puzzles sections.
