Hack Name: Pokemon Ruby Destiny: Reign of Legends
Reason for nomination: This game amazed me, the story, the scripts D/P Pokemon. I was thrilled to finish the game, as it was very challenging, engaging with twists

Pokemon Ruby Destiny - Reign of Legends.

Reason why: It has a good storyline, and all the legendary's in places that are sometimes easy, sometimes hard to get to. Nice maps and scripts. It was challenging and it's plot was unique, as well as surprising and marvellous.

Disturbed November 4th, 2008 12:41 PM

I nominate Waterfall!
Reason: The mapping by Pachel seems to have really improved, and the overworld is simply amazing. It also seems like he does not want to stop until the hack is complete!

Hack Name:Pokémon Distant
Reason for nomination:Excellent mapping and very nice titlescreen it's a very cool hack.

angelas November 4th, 2008 12:49 PM

Hack name:
Pokemon Ruby Destiny - Rescue Rangers

Reason for Nomination:
Great storyline, great spriting. Very good use of flags and scripting.

The storyline was emotional at some points, making it very good. The fact that it goes by chapters also helps it a lot. Just looking at it, I'm willing to bet that it took a lot of dedication to make this hack.
The maps were incredible and well-thought out. The mechanics of the game were also well-thought out so it makes it possible to beat the game.
And the region was magnificent.

Satoshi delivers a great hack with one of the best storylines I have heard. His tiles and palletes are also very good
