NDS-Projects are still allowed ? Im just confused, "retro" and "NDS/PSP/iPhone" somewhat dont fit into one sentence yet

I think the contest is just retro powered and limited to gaming consoles, so.. NDS Games/Apps are allowed  :)

About IPhone , i find it weird to be allowed. ??? Its a gadget , not a gaming console   ::sm-07.gif::

THIS! I would never call anything a game system that use a touch screen and tilt sensors. No dpad + no buttons = not a game system.

I've got one questions, are places 1-10 reserved for each category (psp/nds/gba/nes/snes and so on), so for example there can be two 1st places (1st place nds game and another game can get 1st place psp game) or is it all in one category? If yes, then do games on older systems some additional points, because obviously it's harder to make fun game on these?  ~sm-32.gif~
OFFTOP:
And to the author of the post above mine!
Madness  >:(
Touchscreen is nothing else than buttons on the screen! (+ the screen itself of course) ~sm-65.gif~.gif
D-pad is nothing more than a few buttons too, and they can be represented on touch screen too.  ^-^
Gaming device is, as the name suggests, a device that can play games, and iPhone certainly can do that.  ::sm-09.gif::
You can't decide "what is what" basing on your opinion, you just simply don't like touch screens.  ::sm-13.gif::
As far as I know, iPhone can be connect to the bluetooth keyboard, this way you can have plenty of buttons, but it's not like many games are supporting that (this is also my assumption, I don't have iPhone)  ::sm-11.gif::

There are 2 divisions in total: Game & App , which means , 20 winners in total , and 6 out of 20 are the top winners of both
game and app divisions.

Well, if you're not going to make some regulations then the most obvious choice will be iPhone - there's so many tools for it and development is nearly as easy as for PC.   ~sm-59.gif~.gif
It's easy to predict most games and apps will come for iPhone, and I also think that variety is always fun.  ::sm-09.gif::
I also think that, this "variety" makes NSCC one of a kind.  ~sm-32.gif~
Of course it's just a prediction and it may be way off, but helping this wouldn't be bad indeed.  ~sm-47.gif~.gif
Thanks for listening to my whining.   :-\

Have a good day!   ~sm-74.gif~.gif

Neoflash contests are popular for hosting the best nds/gba & psp homebrew projects ,so probably most of the entries will be for psp/nds & gba  :)
...But its a great chance to see some cool homebrew game&apps on the retro consoles.  ::sm-23.gif:: Developers should grab this chance and work on something different..because we need retro contests .
:D

Hi all!

Could you release a SVG version of the neoflash logo, cause I don't have neither Corel Draw nor Windows.
Or maybe just a big background transparent PNG file could do.

Thank you!
