* For the compilation list you can review one, several, or all of the games on the list as a single compilation review. The list counts as a single 3-paragraphs required review.

Q: I've never written a review before / I'm bad at writing! I shouldn't enter, right?
A: Authors aren't looking for exhaustive critiques of their games. They're looking for feedback!
Q: Do I have to review my own games?
A: Yes! Most authors go for a "director's commentary" style for their own games, but the exact format that you review your own work in is up to you.

General: Released in 2015 or received a major content update in 2015.
Compilation Games: Tech demos, tutorials, not games, 2015 minor content updates (but more substantial than just bug fixes), extremely short, requires two players, exclusive to phones, commercial (unless free copies are offered to reviewers), etc.
Not Even Compilation Games: Minor updates that don't add new content (or ambiguous update descriptions), not OHR games.
Game List Changes:
January 1st: Moved Shooter Game to the main list by popular demand, moved Time Twister to main list, added Mr. Triangle's Adventure to list, removed Design Docs from compilation list (decided it'd be a better fit for a separate article contest),.
