Open2x Bootloader v1.0 (GP2x misc)

Orkie still dives into GP2x development, which is a great thing. He recently contacted us to let us know about Open2x Bootloader. It’s an alternative bootloader for GP2X. Requires Orcus and DevkitARM to compile. ‘make’ will generate a gp2xboot.img file which can be flashed with the GPH u-boot. The bootloader has a simple command line interface accessible via UART – type ‘help’ to see the list of commands

The first release related to Open2x in 11 years (the Linux firmware hasn’t really changed).

Random Nerd-Tipp:

If you are one of the few ones here running their own gastronomy business have a look at – It’s a German company giving you the ability to create your own menu using QR-Codes. It’s a quite interesting system, so please go ahead and check it out. And yes, this is actually sort of off topic, but maybe interesting to the one or other. They offer a free trail month, so there is nothing to lose. All information is available in German language only yet.

Where is my body? (Kickstarter) (Game Boy Game)

There is about one more week left to fund a brand new Game Boy game named Where is my body? by Dana Puch. The type of game is very particular, an original idea from the graphic adventures of the early 90s. You have to find out the different types of mysteries and follow the thread of the story. Your mission is to find the body. Surely you have not seen many games of this type in Gameboy, and surely you will spend some very entertaining hours.

Xump (Atari Lynx Game)

At Songbird Productions you can now purchase Xump by Retroguru for your Atari Lynx! The game ROM will stay free of charge. This is not to be confused with Xump 2.

Help Holger to clean up deserted space fields. As this is a very dangerous task for a human being a headbot named Xump will be the one who has to suffer.

Your main task is to clean all dissolving tiles on several single-screen levels by simply stepping on them, one by one. Few fields are secured with mines and need a double tap. Mines can be blown up when passing by or disarmed by Xump when staying on this specific field for a short moment. Certainly the mission sounds easier than it will be.

ledHeadWii v1.1 (Wii misc)

ledHeadWii is based on Peter Hirschberg‘s LedHEAD (classic electronic LED handled game simulator) source code.

LEDhead is a program that simulates the classic electronic LED (light emitting diode) based handheld games of the 70’s. Now you can relive the excitement of your childhood years all over again! All games feature fully authentic sound-effects, and faithfully replicate the game play of the originals.

Rather than using proprietary code or “ROM images”, as is the case with emulators, LEDhead uses simple but extremely clever imitation to ensure excruciating faithfulness to the games you grew up with. Endless hours of painstaking effort have gone into ensuring the accuracy of each of these games.

Now three years later the game is prettier and has developed a lot. The boxed version can be pre-ordered from DragonBox Shop for 29€ excluding shipping.

According the the developers and their Facebook post, the game ROM will be made free by 1st January 2021, which is a really smart move. We hope, other developers will pick up this idea of a boxed release and a free ROM after a while.

Fruit’Y v1.00 (Symbian OS Game)

Retroguru brought the puzzle game Fruit’Y to Symbian S60 / UIQ devices today, port is courtesy of Lars Persson (AnotherGuest).

Fruit'Y - Playing With Edibles | by Retroguru (Official Trailer)
Watch this video on YouTube.

Fruit’Y – Playing with edibles is heavily inspired by the Kaiko classic Gem’X, which has been seen on computers such as the Commodore Amiga 500, Commodore 64 and Atari ST.

Although tiger mum forbids little Sheran to play with edibles, there is simply no way to stop him from playing with fruits found inside the deep jungle. Being shiny, smelling wonderful and tasting even better Sheran can’t be kept away. So let’s do the best we could do: Support him!

The game consists of two boards of fruits. The left field belongs to Sheran who needs to reproduce the right field 1:1 being able to proceed to the next level. Sounds easy?!
