Sqrxz v1.3 - Fun filled retro platformer by Retroguru overhauled for the Amiga!

Mid last year we gave you the heads up for Retroguru's excellent retro inspired run and jump platformer called Sqrxz 4. A challenging game which featured plenty of platforming fun as you move blocks about, avoiding enemies and collecting food and ice marbles! But the news today is the release of 'Sqrxz v1.3', an enhanced Amiga version of the original first game made in 1996 by Marcus Vesterlund (Maze) and John Holmvall (Hojo) for DOS and Windows 9x.

Original Trailer

Unlike the original Amiga release this version has been completely recoded from scratch based on the developers other excellent sequel Sqrxz 3. Playing at a very smooth Amiga 50 fps, the minimum spec requirements are an Amiga with 1MB and Kickstarter 1.2.


* Hardly any game will annoy you more! Frustration deluxe ahead!
* Amiga’ish feeling!
* 16 Levels including a “beginners” level
* 18 Chiptunes
* Classic AND new graphic mode
* Top 10 highscore
* Endless continue mode
* Hidden easter egg

You'll also be pleased to know that this is a great game and a worthy addition to the Amiga line up, as such the controls are smooth, the frame rates are now far better than the original, and as others have said, the game will keep you hooked for hours!
