Welcome to Danish artist Jan Jenson in the Retroguru family who will support us with graphics artwork. You can find his homepage at http://www.janart.dk/. In particular he is helping a bit on Sqrxz 4 for now. (koj)
Sqrxz 2 PSP placed 2nd in the “PSP Homebrew Game Competition 2013” organized by FouadtjuhMaster, DashHacks and PSVitaGR. There was the one or other nice game, so if you still love PSP homebrew you may want to check all entries out!
Happy new year 2014 from Retroguru with updated ports of Sqrxz 2 for Dreamcast (Thanks Indiket) and Symbian OS Series 60 & Symbian OS UIQ3 (Thanks AnotherGuest). Get your updates from the download page. The only remaining updates to come yet are for Caanoo, MotoMAGX and OpenPandora.
Sqrxz 2 v1.00 for Amiga OS4, AROS, MorphOS, NetBSD 5 x86, PSP, RaspberryPi, Linux, Windows, Wiz and GCW Zero
With lots of effort from Thor Sqrxz 2 now features all enhancements from Sqrxz 3 – basically various screenmodes (coded by Yannick) for devices larger than 320×240. With this there were few other improvements listed a few lines below.
Brandnew Sqrxz 2 ports are for Playstation Portable, NetBSD 5 (x86) and RaspberryPi. PSP by Thor, NetBSD 5 by phx and RaspberryPi by Jum (already approved in the PiStore and free for download!). Not to forget the initial port for the GCW Zero console by zear.
Updates are provided for Amiga OS4 and MorphOS (thanks phx), Linux & Windows & Wiz (thanks Thor). Few more systems are yet to be updated.
* v1.00 (November/2013)
- rewritten frameskip code
- normalized sfx
- fixed configuration saving
- added settings to define screensize (System/OS depending)
- new option to switch between combine up controls with jump or not (this option will come in handy for joystick players only)
changes for devices with a screen equal or larger than 640 x 480:
- scale options: bilinear, antialias and scanlines (Thanks Yannick!)
- $HOME support for Linux based platforms (Thanks zear!)
Go to the downloads page and enjoy your daily frustration dose! :)
Thanks to Sergei Sqrxz 3 for MotoMAGX is now up the the latest build! Get it from the Sqrxz 3 Download page!
With the help of Simon Butler, one of the best pixel graphics artist known on earth, the graphical artwork for Sqrxz 4 has begun today!
With pleasure we teamed up with Dreamcast.es and can offer free floppy disks with Sqrxz and Sqrxz 2 at RetroMadrid (limited supply, so be fast!). RetroMadrid is hold this weekend and will be the first chance for Spanish Amiga-Fans to get a physical version – the game is free, certainly we will not mind if you donate a bit so we can cover our production costs.
The game is available at the Dreamcast.es-Booth. This might sound odd, but Indiket, who is part of Dreamcast.es as well, ported all Sqrxz parts to Dreamcast, so this seemed the best solution having a real team member giving away Sqrxz.
Get the game at the Commodore 4 Ever booth now!
Thanks to Jesus / Commodore4ever for the picture and the distribution @ RetroMadrid 2013
Thanks to DCEric, the Sqrxz 3 Dreamcast .iso file is now up to date!
Frank Wille has been so kind and updated Sqrxz 3 for Amiga OS4 and MorphOS. Enjoy!
