The Winners of the First Obby Contest

Grades 5-8
Cadence Villa
Play the game
Highlight from the judge’s comments:

Looks like she made everything in her obby and did not use parts from the toolbox…put a lot of effort into her obby with almost 40 stages! All the blocks are very precisely placed -- and the colors make me happy.

I'm super impressed that they decided to work with a three quarter camera view, and the obby was well themed with a coherent color palette.
