Monthly Software News Feb. 15th to Mar. 14th 2015


Yeah, Mea culpa, I’m very late for the monthly updates but I am going to catch up two months at once. Today you get the period from Mid Feb to Mid March, and within this week I will release the other half, i.e. Mid March to Mid-April. From Feb to Mid March the updates were kind of few, while there was a steady stream of new software release.

Updates (9):

  • RSS Guard: last version with added functions and fixes.
  • qpdfview: updated with latest version of openjpeg lib.
  • Stupid Mines: Small bugfix.
  • HyperRogue: new geometries to explore in this update.
  • PPSSPP: the recent 1.0.1 update. It may have improved compatibility but I think the performance has decreased a little on certain games.
  • Naev: latest update with updated system libs as well.
  • UAE4All: a few bug fixes and improved performance for AGA software.
  • ZynAddSubFX: last stable release.
  • Camcoder: Latest update takes in account the newer libs of the latest firmwares.

New Releases (10)

  • Various Burst: a game from illegalinstruction, kind of like Sparks on steroid! Polygon arcade shooter with relatively nice graphics!
  • Wizznic: a remake of the original Puzznic, where you have to clear bricks within a limited time (puzzler).
  • Sable: a 3D game inspired by Space Harrier – note that it does not work on CC models.
  • Newton Adventure: in this platformer you play Newton and you have to power to change where Gravity works to go through the levels.
  • Hero of Allocrost: a 2D RPG a la Valkyria Tear (shares a lot of code with it).
  • Robocode: a robot programming game to make robots fight between themselves using algorithms.
  • Cave Express: a game coming from the Android work and now ported to the Pandora by PtitSeb !
  • Freenet: a software to let you access and work in the “Dark Net”, i.e. share files and visit websites that only exist on the Freenet network.
  • Tanks of Freedom: a game that won a one-day compo, and was released with its source code recently. Very much like Advance Wars, except that it’s in isometric 3D and uses 16 colors only (yet looks very nice).
  • Hcraft championship: another port by Ptitseb from the Windows world, a 3D racer in the tradition of Wipe-out. Pretty impressive to see this running on Pandora.

On a side note, the C4A competition this April is ongoing and you are welcome to try your luck to beat the current highscores!

Thanks for your dedication in providing these updates, which are really very helpful to me and many others. You’re a pillar of the community!


Just for the completeness. Hase had this month a whole new release, not only the optimizations and bug fixes you mentioned in the next months (which is correct).
