Mop of Destiny is a commendable 4E5 entry by Drilian featuring classic platformer qualities, especially from Konami's Castlevania series. Unfortunately it's difficulty may deter many from persisting to the fifth and final stage.

The titular mop can be swung to defend yourself, while defeating enemies will award souls which can be bargained for additional weapons or items which restore health.

A definite shoo-in for the first prize, but only because most other entries are below average and offer little competition.

Did you see The Boomlands (another entry in the competition)? That game was very nice, in my opinion. I couldn't play Mop of Destiny, though, so I can't really compare the quality of the two. If the quote above is true, then I wish I had a better computer :(
