Rlyeh leaving GP2x scene (GP2x misc)

rlyeh is leaving the GP32/GP2x scene. He is known for a bunch of emulators and his Minimal Library.


Hello GP32/GP2X community,

If you receive this mail is probably because you contacted with me some (long) time ago probably about my GP32 emulators, the GP2X reminiscence port, or maybe the GP2X minimal library SDK.

The bad news is that I won’t finish anything ever. I’m publicly leaving the GP32/GP2X scene as you’re reading this. I got a sexy girl and no time enough for handhelds, I’ve been idling too much since 2005, and I’m more interested lately in other fields (next-gen videogame creation mainly).

The good news is that I’ve decided to release my GP2X Minimal Library SDK v0.C (WIP ) as is it. I’ve created some sourceforge projects for those guys interested at continuing / improving my work. My webpage is also slowing changing to a new version, and focusing on community and opensource mainly. In the next days I’ll be releasing there many emulators and different software I’ve done in the past years.

Hope you don’t blame for all the missing projects I left on the road: f-day, HPL, and a few GP32 emulators.

I’d like to thank the old #retrodev/#gp32dev/#gp2xdev guys for the good old years.

It was ace to code those 14 GP32 emulators at same time when I had the time to do it. I won’t forget ever the support you guys gave me all the time.

Wish you the best, and keep up the good work!

The future will bring exciting things, but that may be another story.

– rlyeh

Buzzy’s Bad Day v1.0 (GP2x Game)

Sphinxter released Buzzy’s Bad Day for GP2x.

Release notes:

Brand X presents, “Buzzy’s Bad Day”, another solo effort by Linus Sphinx depicting the classic struggle for life and death in the garden of evil in this latest artistic shooter entry in his Return To The Arcade series. This time out you take the role of Buzzy, one big ugly bug with a bad attitude who woke up stuck to the bottom of someone’s shoe on the wrong side of the botanical gardens carnivorous floral exhibit and bird aviary. You need to get home to get bizz-ay and ultimately preserve the species in a final climactic ending that could only be described as insect pornography unlocking the gateway to Buzzy’s secret garden of love and an infinite number of levels.

NOTE: This game is not rated. Scenes and subject matter depicted may be considered offensive and highly unsuitable for larvae in the pre-pupae stage.

Vorton (Beta 4) (GP2x Game)

Vorton is a Vorton is a remake of the classic game Highway Encounter.

Description (from Wikipedia):

Highway Encounter is a strategy/action game played from a 3D isometric perspective in which you must successfully chaperone a bomb along a long, straight stretch of highway and into the alien base at the end of it. There are thirty screens to pass through and most are filled with hazards that threaten to block your progress (such as barrels) or destroy you (aliens and explosive mines).

Players control a robotic “Vorton” (resembling a dalek from Doctor Who) and one of the things that provides Highway Encounter with its unique appeal is that the bomb is constantly being pushed onwards by your extra lives – four more Vortons, who accompany you along the highway. It is in fact possible for all your extra lives to be lost without the player character being destroyed once.


– Fixed the “Continue” issue. This is now a flight demo.
– Uses .MOD Files for Music Playback
– usage of mmuhack for speedup in flight demo,0,0,0,30,2649
