Sqrxz requires fast reflexes and is a simply mindblasting Jump’n’Run puzzle game with high frustration factor.


While Sqrxz wandered around on a sunny day, he was unaware that he had lost all his items while enjoying the scenery. It was already dark until he recognized the loss. There was no possibilty, but to go back where he started the trip and save his things. If the loss was not already enough, strange creatures appeared. Will they be helpful?

Sqrxz (2010) is a remake of a game with the same name and has been created by Rodolphe Boixel (Thor), Shahzad Sahaib (Kojote), Simon Butler and Brendan Ratliff (Syphus). Minor support came from Marcus Vesterlund himself who also gave permission to redo his game. Denny Müller (Mulle) supported the team with a WordPress-Theme for the official page and Rabia Sahaib (Mahek) made three more levels.

A remake should be usually bearing improvements, so does Sqrxz 2010. Beside the “classic” graphic mode, there is a new mode with “deluxe” graphics. The main gameplay has modified in a way that you need to collect all items to open the door at the end of each level, which makes some levels harder than they actually already were. Extended “fun” is guarantueed with additional three levels, unseen before. Each level does have it’s own chiptune and adds up to the retro feeling. A Top 10 highscore table will hold all your records. For the ones who like hidden features, there is even a small easter egg!

Other release notes:

Another update of Sqrxz arrived – all ports are up to date now. We are also pleased to announce the initial release for GPH’s new Caanoo handheld.

Also a notable mention deserves “TuxTheWise” for providing a Dreamcast-ISO of Sqrxz, so you can easily play the game using DreamShell. Of course we should also not forget all our porting machines Pickle, phx, AnotherGuest and Indiket! Thanks for making all those beautiful platforms possible!

For all Sqrxz gamers: We still have one bug in the game, but it occurs occasionally. Sometimes Sqrxz “transports” randomly to another location. This happens really very seldom and we are not able to reproduce this. The Sqrxz-Team would be happy, if you figure out what causes this. This way we can iron out the last problem 🙂

Thanks a lot to all involved and enjoy playing!
