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!
Thanks to James Higgs aka Jum we do have a Raspberry Pi build! Please find the download here.
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!
We had a major problem with Sqrxz 3. For some reason a wrong packaged data file got shared and causes troubles at the end of level four, making it impossible to succeed and getting further. We suppose that this happened at the last major update and would advise everyone to upgrade to the most recent version.
Fresh updated ports (including the correct maps already):
* Dreamcast – CDI Image (Thanks Xavier)
* Symbian OS S60 & Symbian OS UIQ3 (Thanks Lars)
* OpenDingux (Dingoo A320)
* Mac OS X
* NetBSD 5 / x86
* NetBSD 6 / PPC
* Playstation Portable (PSP)
Ports not updated an therefore still buggy:
* Amiga OS 4
* Dreamcast – ISO Image
We are sorry for any inconvenience caused :( For the downloads, please go here.
Sqrxz 1 Amiga OCS won the first place, and Sqrxz 2 Amiga OCS the second place in the Amiga68k category at the Amiga Games Award 2012. Thanks to everyone! We will make sure to recode Sqrxz 3 for Amiga OCS too sometime this year!
Yannick Erb updated the AROS port of Sqrxz 3! It’s now in sync with the latest codebase! Thanks Yannick!
