Thanks for the effort Bart but this list compared to previous years is pretty sad. Hope 2019 brings more artistic endeavors. Happy Holidays.

(^_^;) wow this is now! I like your game a lot. Sometimes I don't get the obvious but I have enjoyed it a lot so far. I also like some of your choices for mobile games. My new favorite game I don't know which year it came out but I like wordbound a hell of a lot. I'm going to reinstall your game black if I ever finish this game LOL. Thanks for all the fun good luck.
