Quite a large list this year. I voted for Axe as it is the first programming language after TI-83+ BASIC that I managed to learn and I have been waiting for this kind of on-calc language for almost a decade. It was an hard decision between Axe and Doors, though, as Doors has remained on my calc for almost the entire time version 7 was released and it often comes to my help.

Lots of other great games and programs this year too and I'm glad oldies like xLIB and Contra finally got featured!

Probably I'm voting Axe too!

I would prefer a categories for games and another for programs, though. This makes it too confusing :(

Having a bit of bias, I voted instead for a project that I've put nearly a decade of work into. ;) Best of luck to all the contestants; I think all of the options and authors are highly deserving of honors.

Yes, I saw a version of Doors from 2001 the other day :P

DoorsCS is very good, my second choice. However, there is only one :(

For future POTYs, I think that when a survey has over 10 or 15 choices, it would be cool if there was maybe a 1st place POTY winner (with the special animated screenshot) and a 2nd place one (with an image mentionning it won 2nd place but no screenshot, or a still image). That said, even if I can only see who got 2nd and 3rd place inside the poll, I would still feel proud to have gotten many votes. In 2005 I remember my game XXR, which finished 3rd, had quite a high amount of votes compared to the rest below, and I was kinda happy.

Last year POTY's had that, the no. of votes :)

I think only programmers will vote for Axe, people who are not programmers, but only users will vote Doors and maybe games.

We always make the full vote counts public when the POTY is awarded. It's on the POTY award page as well as the survey page.

Hella voted for Axe ^^ Its the only alternative calculator language that has been proven to be so useful and revolutionary in game development ^^

This is a wonderful POTY year! I wish I could vote for all of these excellent games/utilities/shells!

Best of luck to all of the contestants, though unfortunately there can only be one winner.

First good luck to all entries' authors.

I picked Axe Parser for being the most revolutionary program this year.

Mimas is a great on calculator ASM IDE.
Don't forget there are lots of great games there. Calculators gamers have plenty to choose from.
Doors CS is now vastly improved and an updated shell, I will definitely use it more often than before.
xLib surely will call for nostalgia in TI-BASIC programmers that use libs.

Myself, I voted for Axe. Before I found Axe, I barely had any idea of how to program whatsoever, getting stuck on some of the most simple things in BASIC...then being kind of dissatisfied because it ran so slow no matter what...
After I found Axe, I actually got into programming and wrote stuff that's actually worth using.

I'm pretty sure some comments got erased because I remember this was 2 pages before, but I'll re-post this anyway. I think this is the most featured programs for the z80 calculators in the history of POTY! And there are so many amazing ones, we almost could have had a programmer of the month this year. I'm glad to see this calculator roaring back to life again.

And in my (probably biased) response to the comment about how Axe only appeals to programmers, you would also have to consider the new availability of games and applications made possible by it. Four of them are even featured in this poll, and all from programmers with little to no assembly experience. There are some extremely impressive projects in development as well.

No comments got erased here, but the board on the poll page is separate from the board on this news article. You're probably looking for the former.

I think this is the second biggest 83/83+/84+ POTY to date. 2004 had 20 programs, this one has 18. It's quite an exciting contest!
