Gianas Return WIP (22-05-2008) (GP2x Game)

News from the Giana’s Return Team:

World 1 – Boss enhancement!
Our coder has tweaked the first endboss this night. Overall it’s slightly more difficult than before, but considering there are dozens of chances to gain extra lifes before, it should not hurt too much.

Concerning some critism from Fusion_Power about the “layout” of the boss area, we have adjusted it. A before after check will be posted the next days. It’s really just a MINOR change, but it was probably really required.

Box2D Physics Library v0.0001 (GP2x Techdemo)

Here comes a new port from Hitnrun…


Box2d is a very cool physics library that is being used to develop very cool Physics games.

Just for fun I make a quick SDL port of the TestBed that comes with Box2d, and guess what, it worked!
This library could be used to make very fun games.

These are just demos with wireframe 2d graphics showing the library capabilities, it is fun to watch.

To switch the demos, press L and R, to exit press START.

It looks like to be fast, but as this library uses a lot of floating-point, I don’t know if a real game would be fast enough.,0,0,0,8,2594

Do not update to 4.1.0 unless your GP2x already has 4.0.0 or 4.0.2 on it. Current indications are that doing so will turn your handheld into an expensive brick.
