Sometimes in a while Retroguru releases for really old systems, such as yesterday for the Amiga OCS. The rewrite of Sqrxz 3 for Amiga OCS was shown at “6. Retroböre in Rosenheim” (Germany) yesterday. Before one of the visitors gets the chance to release a dump, we better make it official now :)
Sqrxz 3 Amiga OCS Wrapping
With the hard work of Frank Wille, our expert if it comes to Amiga Assembler, we were able to get out another fresh Amiga game in 2015. The responsible wonderful people for the graphics were Simon Butler (Sprites and Tiles), Anne Claire Riffaud Declercq (Storyline and Title-Logo) and Virgile Metier (color reducing to match the Amiga OCS requirements). Not to forget the superb chiptunes by Alexander Wiklund who cheer you up during the whole game. Denny Müller played also a big role in doing the trailer (okay that one is already a bit older, as we had the game out for Windows PC’s in 2011 already) and designing the wrapper, booklet and floppy label for the physical release. Last but not least Shahzad Sahaib is responsible for the project and kept everyone tight together to make everything reality!
The trailer shows the PC version, which only differs by background. The Amiga OCS version has a nice copper ;)
We would be pleased if you give us a hand and spread the word about this fancy new Amiga OCS game :) Certainly it works on basically all OCS/ECS/AGA Amigas with 1MB RAM (or more).
Today comes an unintentional double release. Gameblabla was so kind and sent in a port of Sqrxz (Remake) for TI Nspire CX calculators. While updating we realized the previous old Windows release was still online, instead of the recent v1.0b. So today… initial release of Sqrxz (Remake) for TI Nspire CX, courtesy of Gameblabla plus and updated Windows version.
Frank Wille updated the initial Sqrxz game for Amiga OCS to run in full smooth 50fps! v1.3 is now ready for free download! Enjoy and feel free to give us feedback! The CDTV and HD-Install versions will remain v1.2 as the technology used in v1.3 is not compatible and would require lots of adjustments.
Thanks to Vanavel we do now have Sqrxz, the very first Sqrxz game, remade by Retroguru and initially created by Marcus Vesterlund (Maze) and John Holmvall (Hojo), for the Raspberry Pi! Head to the download section and start up your Rapsberry Pi!
Thanks to Bruno Marie (Gameblabla) Sqrxz 3 hits your TI Nspire CX!
With the port of Sqrxz (Remake), the very first part of the series, Oibaf has completed the port of the Sqrxz-Quadrilogy to Nintendo’s GameCube! Thanks Oibaf!
Alexander Wiklund, music artist for the Retroguru games Sqrxz 2 and 3, released his OST of the game Action Hank. Support him and buy :)
Thanks to Bruno Marie (Gameblabla), Sqrxz is heading back the way it came from, to an calculator! Sqrxz 4 has been ported and is now ready for your TI Nspire CX! Backports of the first three parts are very possible and might happen over the next few weeks.
Yet another Retroguru release! Fabio Olimperi was so kind and brought Sqrxz 2 to the wonderful GameCube. As you have already recognized by now, we seem to reverse-release all Sqrxz parts for GameCube, so next up in a few days… the very first part of Sqrxz! For now… enjoy Sqrxz 2!
Simon Butler, the great guy who did pixels on basically all Sqrxz parts released so far, started his own little project. It’s a children book named “The Little Things in Life” and is currently active on Kickstarter for the next four weeks! Kindly have a look at his project and consider donating to his project! Sqrxz would be possibly not what it is without Simon!
