LEVEL 5 - GO !
































I've choose to don't do a specific game, but a category of games which was very popular in the 80's : the "Shoot them up" (that how we called it in France, don't know for the USA...) - I've got my first computer in 1988 I think, it was a really cool one : the famous Commodore Amiga 500 ! I really loved it and I spent a lot of time playing cool games on it : the "Shoot Them up" games were amongst my favorites, obviously because they featured space ships, bases, robots... Aaah nostalgia ! Thanks to Shannon Ocean who gave me inspiration, thanks to Chris and Dave Shaddix for this really cool category. I've been wondering for days and days whhat game I wanted to do, and finally I've made the whole game (30 screens)in only 2 days (the ships on the main pic have been done some days before) - Hope you'll like it, thanks for viewing !

Total nostalgia attack Crimso, I spent many hours in arcades piling coins into side-scrolling shoot-em-ups and this really looks authentic. Unlucky on not making the final.

Oh, all the hours I've spent playing that game! not only did you capture the action and essence of the game fantastically, you also did it in your signature style! I cannot begin telling you how good I think this is ;)

This one had me laughing and I could hear the sound effects in my head!!! I played way too many of those type of games.

WOW! absolutely great!! First of all the idea is great. second of all I REALLY admire how you got every level to look different with different type of ennemies . it reminded me of R-Type on the sega mastersystem (1988) and darius II on the sega mega drive II (1993?)... anyway. the most incredible superb thing is the use of DUPLO CRANE PARTS for the final robot boss! always wanted to use those ;p my only slight regret is that the ship u're flying doesnt get better weapons and upgrades after some time ;)

I won't forget, it look like it'd take me a week, just to make the ships in the main picture. They are great!

I reckon dave tipped Chris. This is way better. I think dave only won cause he put himself in the photos. The amount of pictures you've put up! Wow, I can see you've pushed a few things aside to do this. I reckon you deserved to win, I mean dave's was terrific, but anyone could do that (except his console was a winner, the games and controllers, were, ok). I thought you needed to create a GAME ot a console? But i dunno, I'm not the judge. :-) Gr8t job here and good job to sterling, I loved yours too, i just thought this felt more classic and had more colours and detail (overall).

Alors là...c'est tout simplement magnifique! Probablement ton MOC le plus créatif et original! On imagine facilement la quantité du travail et des efforts que tu t'es donné pour réaliser tout ça: à chaque image, des vaisseaux différents, de nouveaux décors, des boss, sans compter les variations thématiques à chaque niveau! De la créativité à l'état pur! Tu me laisses complètement admiratif, là ;) Franchement dommage que tu n'ais pas remporté ce round, cela aurait été une récompense largement méritée!

Ok, I know I got a reference for the inspiration but Crimso this was FANTASTIC! I'd have to say if I were a judge I would've picked your entry over Dave's. His NES was incredibly accurate and total eye candy but your game screenshots I found more exciting and imaginative. This horizontal scrolling shoot-em up could be a great theme to explore mate. Dry those tears! :)

In terms of sheer scale, effort, challenge, and creativity, this is a winner of a project. I love the color-coded levels, the variety of ships and creatures, and the old-school feel. As Chris reminded me once, just because you lost the round does not take away from this MOC one little bit.

Personally, I would have voted for this. Not that my opinion matters. At least you sure went down in a flame of glory... or however the saying goes.

Quoting Space Pirate Will there be a MOC-Off between you and Steef, to see who gets third place? Would be fun ^^
lol Probably more fun for Steef because he would be sure to win ! I'll ask to Chris and Steef, but in this case, we'll make it in our comfort zone I supose : Ships !!!

Thanks everyone for your nice comments ! I'm not sure about Dave's entry though : he's a great builder, his entry is superb, but I feel that his MOC doesn't really fit the category, I mean, we must recreated a GAME, not a console... anyway the whole MOColympics were great, and I'm happy to have been in the final four competitors. Once again thanks everybody !

Good one, Crimso. Looks like you gave the theme some thinking, but no real difference (skills, difficulty?)in your levels? Looks like Dave gets the win from me; still, you were a worthy competetor! Thanks for playing!

Crimso, this is your finest hour! Great job on this--it looks amazing. I'm a big fan of shoot 'em up games like Gradius and R-Type and this definitely captures the genre well.

This is definitely a fantastic interpretation of a side scroller! It's a tough decision that I don't envy the judges for! I really enjoy how you make your creations multidimensional and aren't afraid to think outside of the normal LEGO boundaries. Good luck in the comp!

Quoting Mark Kelso Well done, Crimso! Both you and Dave took interesting, and very different approaches. This time I had to go with Dave, though. His accuracy on the NES he built was just off the hook! Still, a great idea for the round with this flat approach to the building and presentation.
Thanks Mark ! I think that Dave deserves the win, and to say it all, I'll now have more time for my regular production !

1. I instantly recogninzed the game type this was, it's so 80's - 'Caverns of Erebin' etc. 2. I was staggerred by the amount of work gone into this. 3. I am amazed that the collosal effort of the game screens followed the main pic which was of two stunning space craft. The one on the right is a total beast. 4. When it comes to LEGO, you totally rock dude!

While the overall MOC is brilliant, I am also greatly enjoying those yellow spaceships on the main pic. Nice work as usual Mr. Giger.

Win or lose, you have been an inspiration to all builders in this years competition. This was amazing! I particularly love the 'Bosses' you created and how they got progressively larger and I presume harder to beat(f-ing Bosses!) Great job once again and best of luck with the judges!~H

Crimso, let me just say that I literally had my mouth hanging open when I looked at this. WOW. In the end though, dave's outside the box (pun intended because he basically built a box) thinking and functionality is what did it for me. Good luck with the other judges! ~ Chris.

Fantastic! I love classy old space ship games, very cool. This will be so hard for the judges! How did you assemble them dureing the photography, as in, did you put things in the proper order on the table seperatly, like the monsters not heald together.

It is a beautiful creation, very clever. I went with Dave on this one because of the "lay it on black paper" impression I got on this moc. If it had been a Lego background, the vote might have gone the other way. Best of luck with the other judges. Lee.

Never heard of the game, but it looks sorta like asteroids! I just saw you were French. So is half of my family! So I speak a fair amount, but I'm not completely fluent- I still have to learn a lot of conjugations and stuff... Enough off-topicry! Great job, it all looks awesome! Did you make only half of each ship or did you lay them on their sides? I can't tell. Great job, good luck.
