Sqrxz v0.9.9.6 is out! (Windows 32-Bit, Ubuntu 32-Bit, Amiga OS4, MorphOS, NetBSD x86, NetBSD PPC, Symbian OS UIQ 3, Symbian OS S60v3, Pandora, Wiz, Caanoo, Dreamcast)

Another update of Sqrxz arrived – all ports are up to date now. We are also pleased to announce the initial release for GPH’s new Caanoo handheld.

Changes for Dreamcast, Windows 32-Bit, Ubuntu 32-Bit, Wiz:

* Multi-Language support: English, German, French and Spanish

Changes for Pandora, Symbian OS (UIQ3 & S60v3), Amiga OS4, MorphOS, NetBSD (x86 & PPC):

* Improved collision
* Improved controls
* Added “Dali” quote in startup
* Removed donation nag in end, donations are still welcome.
* Fixed highscore glitch
* Multi-Language support: English, German, French and Spanish

Also a notable mention deserves “TuxTheWise” for providing a Dreamcast-ISO of Sqrxz, so you can easily play the game using DreamShell. Of course we should also not forget all our porting machines Pickle, phx, AnotherGuest and Indiket! Thanks for making all those beautiful platforms possible!

For all Sqrxz gamers: We still have one bug in the game, but it occurs occasionally. Sometimes Sqrxz “transports” randomly to another location. This happens really very seldom and we are not able to reproduce this. The Sqrxz-Team would be happy, if you figure out what causes this. This way we can iron out the last problem :)

Thanks a lot to all involved and enjoy playing!

  1. Where’s version for PSP?

  2. Probably not released? :)

  3. Do you need someone to compile it for GP2X?

    Great game, lives up to the quality we got used to from Giana’s Return!

  4. We have a problem with libmodplug on GP2x – other than that a GP2x version would have been already public.

  5. I see. The game seems to have some sound problems on Wiz as well, particularly in-game.

    If you turn the volume down until you can’t hear the music anymore, you cannot turn it up again. The sound effects get loud again, but the music remains muted.

    Also, could you please consider defaulting to a low sound volume at application startup? Lucky Caanoo owners get global volume control, but on Wiz it’s awkward to have sound blasting unpredictably especially in a public place :-)

  6. Volume control is something we would like to have in the final release. Thanks for the head ups anyway :)

  7. Just uploaded the OSX version.


    It’s an untested crosscompile, so be careful, it might destroy the planet.
    Feedback welcome.

  8. Make Nokia N900 port pls!

  9. Is there any progress with the gp2x Version?
    Would be fantastic

  10. This game does not work in my symbian mobile (nokia e72). Some problem with buttons. I can use left and right buttons but down dont. The action button does not work either, so I can jump in the game :(
    Just a feedback. I hope I am helping.

  11. @Andy1210: Get us a coder who can do Maemo ports :)
    @Ciaomao: Not yet, we are slow and old ;)
    @Eduardo: v1.0 will be having button config so I hope it will help to fix your problems.

  12. Is there any chance for a NDS port?

  13. in china, there are many websites,bbs,and blogs are talking about SQRXZ,and most of them think this game is very good.
    sadly,my english is not very good and i left a comment in a wrong place(in the donations part)……a little want to cry.
    really look forward to the virson 1.0 of the game.

  14. @Bai Guang: Feel free to play Sqrxz 2 which you can find at https://www.sqrxz2.de :) Sqrxz 1 is done in theory, there is just very very little polishing left, there might be no real changes coming.

  15. so wonderful!!
    I have download it and would play it as soon as I finish my busy work!

  16. Thank you so much. Runs great on my w960i and also good on m600i:)
