Release notes by notaz:
This should run on GP2X/Wiz/Caanoo, but I’ve only tested this on GP2X and Caanoo. The main change is that SegaCD compatibility issues should be resolved now. 32X compatibility has been improved too, but it’ll be too slow on GPH consoles. I don’t know if/when I can optimize 32X, although it should be possible to improve it still.
From what I see there is not much action on these boards any more, I guess everyone moved on to one of the gazillion Android devices that are available these days.. If anyone still uses this on their GPH consoles (especially on good old GP2X), it would be nice if you posted here so that I know if it’s worth building future PD releases for GPH consoles or not.
Isidor makes X-Mas happen before X-Mas and gifts Wiz and Caanoo users with a game, based on the Atari 2600 classic Combat. Unfortunately there is little information about Combatz by the author himself, so you may try on your own if this is one or two player and if there are signs of AI at all.
In The Amazing Adventures Of Echo by Drumpi you must fight, jump, find… and shot.
Echo is a little boy who loves action films, and he likes to go out dressing like a super-hero, always followed by his dog. But this time, Echo sees his dreams come true: He got his own action adventure series. So he must face the dangers of a haunted castle, with tons of enemies, ghosts and dragons, and repel the future alien invasion in a post-apocalyptic city, where humans fight with his machines.
This new release features pimped graphics by FBustamante.
