Sqrxz 2 v1.10 for OpenPandora

Pickle’s initial port of Sqrxz 2 (v0.80) has been updated to the very recent version v1.10 by Notaz. Highlights for Pandora users:

* v1.10 (February/2016)
– added soundcheck option
– scale options: bilinear, antialias and scanlines (Thanks Yannick!)
– added ability to change screen effects on the fly
– added ability to change screen size without restarting
– improved file system (old .zda files in /data can be deleted!)
– rewritten frameskip code
– normalized sfx
– fixed configuration saving
– new option to switch between combine up controls with jump or not (this option will come in handy for joystick players only)

Sqrxz 2 v1.10 for Windows!

One major complaint we had about Sqrxz 2 was: “We like the tunes made by Alexander Wiklund, but we are not able to go further to the next level!”. An important feature has been now added to Sqrxz 2… our all beloved Soundcheck-Option! Listen to all tunes, without playing throughout all levels!

The first updated platform is for Windows (32-Bit; should run on 64-Bit too) and here is the change log:

* v1.10 (January/2016)
– improved file system (old. zda files in /data can be deleted!)
– added soundcheck option
– added ability to change screen effects on the fly (system depending)
– added ability to change screen size without restarting (system depending)

Thanks to Lars Persson (AnotherGuest) making this update possible!

Sqrxz 3 v1.0 for Amiga OCS released!

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

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!

[Trailer] Sqrxz 3 - Adventure for Love

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).

Sqrxz v1.0b for TI Nspire CX and Windows (32-Bit) released!

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.
