Poomania (PDRC v4.01)

Our friendly plumber Paul is in trouble. Fatarse Fritz just ran to the outhouse, and the pipework isn’t done at all! Will you manage to help Paul before Fritz flushes his giant load and causes a terrible mess in the pit?

Connect the start of the pipe to the end point before the timer runs out. Once the flush sequence has been started, no more pieces of pipe can be placed. If you accidently set a wrong tile, you can remove it by pressing the B button, but this will take some time. Your progress is saved to cart automagically. If you play the game again, you can select your starting level up to the one you reached. Please don’t turn off your Gameboy Advance while the floppy disk icon is visible, otherwise your progress data may be lost and you have to start over from scratch again.

Powder (Build 111) (GBA Game)

POWDER is a roguelike game, which is not a port of an existing roguelike. It is built around replayability and long term ergonomics, not short term learning. Author of this piece of software is Jeff Lait.

Changes:

Further Makefile clean up, using $(RM) and other niceties. (Zasenko Sergey)
Applied WinCE compatibility patches. (Ilya Kasnacheev)
Ibson the Grey’s tileset is now built into the SDL builds of POWDER rather than requiring you to use the From Disk… option. (It is not in the DS, GBA, WINCE versions)
Unique monsters have a ! badge to distinguish them before you engate in battle. (Andreas Bohm)
When fully charged spells will get a yellow glow so you can tell 99% charge from fully ready.
Tameness should no longer expire while you still live. (Tobias Pierce)
Tame creatures whose masters die will go wild after five turns and be also confused. You now have a good reason to go after the leaders of rooms first.
Kobold Assassins can inflict bleeding wounds, as was always intended. (Tobias Pierce)
Radius of the burst when bottles break is dependent on curse/blessed status.
Poisoned smoke potions are more useful. (Tobias Pierce)
Smashing potions will interact with existing smoke. (CYBER_Aeon)
Tridude on the keyboard is now a proper tridude. (Bunnyriffic)
Artifacts have an overlay to distinguish them and are always above mundane items in piles (Stefan O’Rear)
New POWDER icon thanks to Sam Goldfield!
Crash when you load the game on a level with more than 32 active smoke tiles fixed. (Lawrence T. Levine)
Iron Golems and Stone Golems have the proper second attack, and hence hit much harder. (Nicholas Young)
Spells and skills are listed even if you are amnesic in character dumps. (Meddyan)
Vampire bats should ignore bloodless targets. (CYBER_Aeon)
Vampire bats gain food when they suck blood. (Tobias Pierce)
Creatures will be more careful in what they eat, especially familiars. (Tobias Pierce)
Being poisoned by something more powerful will properly clear the weaker poison.

While the highscore is kept, save games are never preserved between versions. Please wait until your current character dies before upgrading.
