After half year of competition, Hoowu HTML5 Game Contest finally comes to its ending. We want to thank for all developers support during these 6 months. In China, HTML5 games is a heat currently, however, there are many reskined works. Hoowu Game host this contest because we want to provide a just and good platform for all developers, to promote the developing of original games as well. We are devoted to take a part in building a healthy and prosperous HTML5 game industry.

 

At the end of the contest, we want to express our special thanks to ALIBABA group for the servers provided,   to Taobao Mobile Client, 滴滴打车,and all platforms and media. Thank you for your kindly support for this contest. 

 

Its time for the results. Lets clear out the rules of grading: 
Final Score = Popularity(20%)+Creative(25%)+Graphic(25%)+Adaptation(10%)+Votes(20%)

 

From statistic shown in backstage, some games have brush tickets. To insist the fairness of Hoowu HTML5 Game Contest, we decided to canceled this score. The winners are chosen by Hoowu editors and all professional judges of Hoowu HTML5 Game Contest.

 

We are sorry to tell you all that, due to the amount of contest games are far less than plan, and most of games have already released in other platforms before joining Hoowu HTML5 Game Contest,  considering all data and factors, none of works reach the expectation of the big prizes set.

Hi there

 

I did not enter this competition but it looks like one of my games was stolen, uploaded and won in your 'consolation' category

 

original game: http://happylandergames.com/games/poppoprush/

stolen game: http://www.51h5.com/game/843.html

 

Can you please remove this game from your site as soon as possible - and make sure you do not award any prize money to them!

 

Any revenue/income from this game can be paid here:http://www.redcross.org.cn/hhzh/

I suggest that you check out any other games from the same uploader as they are likely to have stolen and translated other peoples games too

I am very curious to see what kind of html5 games could "reach the expectation of the big prizes set" as you tell it.

you can check our rule of grading, one thing which is important is that we want developers can released their original work at the first time at Hoowu Games before they released their games to other platform, or at least at the same time. Most of the contest games are already released before they join contest. Strictly they cant win any of the prize because we have rules regarding it, as you can see in open.51h5.com if you can understand Chinese, but, as we said, we want to encourage all developers, so we set up those prizes, hope next time there are some games appear that reach the expectation.

What a joke. I'm glad I didn't enter this scam competition.

 

Please stop before they say the response from HTML5 developers was not respectable enough to pay out even their consolation prizes.

 

Even though the prizes are lower than expected, I think they are still decent and would participate in any future contests.

I can not speak for everyone, but my game Road Safety was released on Hoowu before any other platform. All in accordance with the rules :).

My Jellyfish Rescue too ;)

 

I think we both know what does "brush tickets" means, why we don't cancel it its because we think Jellyfish Rescue is still a good game, so we give a prize for it and show our respect for developer for their support. Why the prize is not as expected, is because we really cant choose the game qualified enough. Please understand.

No wonder road safety is one of the best games, we hope you can keep working and win other prizes in our next contest!

In most countries (probably even China) it is illegal for a company to offer a set prize pool and then not deliver on it - it is misleading, unethical, and deceptive conduct. The prize for first place was meant to be $8,000 and you are barely paying $1,000 to your "excellent winners" listed above.

 

If I was an entrant I would be furious. But it looks like the winners are happy to take their pitiful consolidation prize, so congratulations on your successful scam.

@Hoowu Game, i am sorry but could you explain what you mean by "brush ticket" since it's the first time i hear that and google doesn't help.

 

@True Valhalla, lots of contests in usa and europa have a safe guard that allow to suspend, modify or cancel the terms of a contest but you are right, it's pisses of everybody ;)

Yes, pretty much every competition has the right to change the rules at any time.  But to exercise that right is to abandon good faith - the primary objective for any emerging brand.  Surely the cost of the retracted prizes is a lot less than the potential damage to Hoowu's brand?

 

What next for Hoowu's strategy to attract developers to enter into exclusive publishing agreements?

Thank you for the explanation, Hoowu Game establish the platform since 2014, Hoowu HTML5 Game Contest is the first time that we host the contest, sorry to disappoint some developers due to the change of prize, next time we will try best to make the contest more fair and just.

Regarding the exclusive publishing agreement, we will sign a contract with developer, so no need to worry about it.
