In the course of the War, the Earthlings discovered a factory world by the 'Precursors' - an impossibly advanced that disappeared tens of thousands of years ago. This colony, Unzervalt (aka Vela I), lost all contact with Earth shortly after landfall.
You are Captain Zelnick, a human that was born on Unzervalt and who possesses a remarkable knack for Precursor technology. You were the one who worked out how to activate the Precursor installation.
It was a factory for building starships. However, Unzervalt is mineral-poor, and there were not enough materials available to construct a complete vessel. Your task is to command this craft, the Vindicator, and return to Earth to tell them of the abandoned colony. Also, if the War with the Ur-Quan continues, you must fight for Earth and the Alliance as best you can.

Evil Swampy and his followers have stolen the magic ruby, which made it once possible for Giana and Maria to return from their dream. Many creatures are after this ruby, but does it really have power, or was it just a coincidence?
As this is not bad enough, Swampy fell in love at first sight with Giana's sister Maria and shamelessly kidnapped her. She simply has been at the wrong place at the wrong time.
You take over the role of Giana, get back the magic ruby and most important of all, save your beloved sister Maria and get home save! Good Luck!
Giana's Return is 100% FREEWARE and does not cost you a single cent, should you have paid for it please let us know so we can take legal steps and help others to avoid a possible trap. You are not allowed to distribute the download on any medias or online places without written permission. Official mirrors are available and listed on the official homepage - Please respect this!

No one of the original team was involved in the creation of this game, besides Armin and Manfred giving feedback on (for now) pretty old betas.

Amiga 500 emulatorPublication DateTuesday, 02 Dec 2014Original AuthorUAE team, ChuiPort AuthorNebuleon, Artur "zear" RojekProject PageUAE4ALL is an Amiga 500 emulator based on UAE 0.8.22 core.
Version: GCW Zero Release 1.
List of authors and contributors:
* UAE authors (see ./docs/CREDITS)
* Chui - original UAE4ALL author
* Nebuleon & Zear - GCW Zero port and improvements
* Hi-Ban - new UAE4ALL logo and minor graphical changes (Hi-Ban's contributions licensed under Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International)
This version of the program is a *port* of the original emulator.
The authors of this port are NOT maintaining the emulation core.
For any issues related to the emulation performance, please contact the *original* UAE/UAE4ALL authors.
Before first use:
Provide a valid Amiga 500 Kickstart bootstrap firmware and copy it to the following location:
UAE4ALL will refuse to launch without this file present.
UAE4ALL will work with disk images in "adf" and "adz" format.
1) Copy appropriate files to a location of your choice in the GCW Zero filesystem
2) Launch UAE4ALL emulator
3) Select "Load disk image" option
4) Choose "Load DF0 image" (Floppy Drive #1) or "Load DF1 image" (Floppy Drive #2) to load a disk image to the appropriate drive.
NOTE: Bootable disks need to be loaded to DF0.
5) Point the file selector to a directory location with the disk images and select the image you want to load.
NOTE: This directory location will be stored as a default directory for future UAE4ALL runs.
6) For bootable images, select "Start Amiga" or "Reset Amiga" to boot a new image. For non-bootable images, select "Return to Amiga" and follow instructions of the currently emulated program.
Adjusting the frame rate:
Setting the frameskip value to "auto" will limit the emulated program speed to 50 frames per second. Use this option for programs meant to be run on PAL Amiga machines. Most Amiga programs were designed for this frame rate.
Setting the frameskip value to "0" will limit the emulated program speed to 60 frames per second. Use this option for programs meant to be run on NTSC Amiga machines.
Controls (during emulation):
D-PAD/analog joystick - control amiga joystick (if mouse emulation turned off) / amiga mouse (if mouse emulation turned on)
A - joystick button #1

To say that Enigma is a puzzle game is an understatement.Publication DateMonday, 17 Nov 2014Original AuthorEnigma TeamPort Authorsenquack (Dan Silsby)Project PageInspired by the classic game Onyx, Enigma is really a huge collection of puzzle games, and each of its 550 unique levels challenge the intelligence, dexterity and sheer willpower of its players anew. Enigma is simple to learn, challenging to play, but hard to master. Players of almost any age can enjoy it. It contains hundreds of levels. And if that isn't enough, it's also completely free. If you like puzzle games and have a steady hand, Enigma will probably keep you busy for hours on end.
IMPORTANT NOTE :
Because of copyright laws, Enigma for the GCW Zero does not include the five official level-packs based on the original Oxyd game. Installing them yourself is easy, however. Run the game once so that it creates a folder in your home directory:
$HOME/.enigma/ (Using FTP, this will be /home/.enigma/)
Download the latest Windows .ZIP binary release from here: Enigma downloads page
Extract it to a folder on your computer and, using FTP, copy the following five folders into your GCW Zero's /home/.enigma/levels folder:
NOTE: if using FTP, you want to be sure you have any option to show hidden folders turned ON, or else you won't be able to see the /home/.enigma/ folder. Also, make sure BINARY TRANSFER MODE is turned on.
Your $HOME/.enigma/levels/ folder should now look something like this:
Now, start up Enigma and you will now see the Oxyd levels under the "Deja-Vu" level-pack category.
BTW, if you ever create or download any additional levels, they should go into the auto/ folder shown above.
PLAYING THE ORIGINAL OXYD LEVELS:
Enigma is able to read the original Oxyd family of games' data files! If you own the original games, you can copy the .DAT level files into your $HOME/.enigma/levels/legacy_dat/ folder. The level sets will then show up in the "Dongleware" category.
MORE ABOUT THE GAME:
The object of the game is to find and uncover pairs of identically colored 'Oxyd' stones. Simple? Yes. Easy? Certainly not! Hidden traps, vast mazes, laser beams, and most of all, countless hairy puzzles usually block your direct way to the Oxyd stones. Enigma's game objects (and there are hundreds of them, lest you get bored) interact in many unexpected ways, and since many of them follow the laws of physics (Enigma's special laws of physics, that is), controlling them isn't always trivial ...
The original goal of the Enigma project was to keep the spirit of the Oxyd game series alive, after its publisher decided to leave the gaming business in 2002. Fans of this famous game will experience deja-vu. However, over the years, Enigma has absorbed ideas from countless other popular games, and added its own unique twists to each of them.
To learn fully how to play the game, you are encouraged to read the excellent official user's manual and also visit the official Enigma home page
The original game is meant to be played with a mouse. Because of this, I have taken pains to make it as playable as possible on our handheld gaming system that lacks a mouse. The marble can be controlled with either the Analog Stick, the DPAD, or the internal G-sensor. In order to play with the G-sensor you must first enable it in the game's settings. Playing using the DPAD would be a bit like cheating, and I discourage you from doing so.
In addition to the default movement speed, you can move with three additional speeds: Speed #1 is mapped to the B button, Speed #2 to the X button, and Speed #3 to the Y button. You may change these speeds in the options menu, under "Controls", along with a few other options, like enabling or calibrating the G-sensor, or changing deadzones.
There is a handy in-game list of the control mappings. Select "Help" from the main menu and then select "GCW Zero Controls".

* Music and "bullet-time slowdown" can easily be disabled
* Bullet-shape outlines can be turned on or off (good for 320x240 resolutions)
MODES OF PLAY:
1.) NORMAL MODE - This is the standard game mode. Your ship is slower when firing the laser. You have a limited number of bombs that clear enemy bullets.
2.) PSY MODE - This mode is inspired by the "Psyvariar" family of games. When your ship grazes a bullet, the gauge fills up. When the gauge is full, your ship becomes temporarily invincible. Use this short period of time to graze as many bullets as possible and become invincible again... This technique is also called 'scratching'. The 'special' attack is used to "scratch" on a wider area, but it slows down your movement.
3.) IKA MODE - This mode is inspired by the legendary game "Ikaruga" for Dreamcast … Gamecube. Your ship can switch between red and blue colors. Your ship absorbs bullets of the same color but others destroy it. Absorbed bullets are automatically changed into lasers that damage the enemy.
4.) GW MODE - This mode is inspired by the "Gigawing" family of games. Your ship can reflect all bullets around it. This is achieved by keeping the 'special' button pressed until the gauge becomes empty. The reflector can only be engaged when its gauge is full. You must wait for the "OK" mark.

A wacky physics-based arcade game... in spacePublication DateSaturday, 04 Oct 2014Original AuthorJan HubickaPort AuthorDaniel Silsby (senquack)Project PageKoules is a fun … silly physics-based homebrew game released in 1995 by Jan Hubicka for Linux. It is one of the first arcade-style games ever released for Linux and I've always liked playing it. So, I decided to bring it to the handheld masses.
You are the big yellow ball with eyes. You must knock out the other balls that come towards you (Evil Koules fighters). Small blue balls give you extra mass, while small green balls give you extra acceleration. Yellow balls give you tons of both. White balls steal all your power-ups. Gold balls allow you to steal power-ups from other balls. There are 99 levels and as you progress, the game introduces new elements and gets quite a bit harder. I suggest playing on the "HARD" difficulty for maximum fun, once you pick up the basics.
Don't worry, the game will explain the new elements to you as you move along.
v1.0: First release (GCW version):
* Adapted from my previous GP2X/Wiz ports:
* Added g-sensor/analog stick support
* Two-player-on-one-device support
* Added music by DST @ nosoapradio.us (Creative Commons 3.0 License)
* Added cool randomly-generated plasma background
* Adjusted volume of two sound samples that were too loud
* Fixed major bug in original game regarding fread()/fwrite() of rc files.
* Made HARD difficulty mode the default mode.. MEDIUM difficulty is too slow and easy.
* Adjusted NIGHTMARE difficulty mode to actually be playable.
* Adjusted HARD difficulty mode so that your player has a bit less mass (hard was also too easy).
* Fixed various bugs, especially in menu.c
Pre-v1.0: Initial SVGALIB->SDL conversion also by Dan Silsby (senquack)
Instead of charging at everything you see, try to trick enemies into chasing you and dodge them at the last second. You can get them to crash into walls and the red/green holes that appear. Use the green "magnetic holes" for moving in a slingshot effect.
CONTROLS … TWO-PLAYER MODE:
SELECT: Exit to main menu
L+R TRIGGERS: Re-calibrate g-sensor
In one-player mode: you move with either the D-PAD or the A/B/X/Y buttons, your pick. G-sensor and analog stick control can be enabled from the main menu. If the g-sensor fails to work, that is a bug in the firmware currently being worked on. If you power-off your unit and hold the reset button for 30+ seconds that should get the g-sensor working again.
In two-player mode: two people play on one device, either deathmatch or cooperatively. Player 1 uses the DPAD and Player 2 uses either the A/B/X/Y buttons (GCW held horizontally) or the analog stick (GCW held vertically).
An old-school earthworm action gamePublication DateFriday, 03 Oct 2014Original AuthorJoosa Riekkinen, Erik Lindroos and othersPort AuthorArtur "zear" RojekProject PageLiero is a simple game. Pick your five weapons, and unleash your inner fury. The game is always played one versus one on a map of your choice.
To shoot is of course easy enough to figure out, but if you want to step up your game, you need to figure out things like how to swing yourself to safety with the ninja rope, to use timed weapons for area denial, to hunt without being hunted, to ambush, hit and run, and control that darn guided missile.
If you can do all these things, you may one day become a true champion, as the players in this video attempt.

The Final RunPublication DateThursday, 03 Jul 2014Original AuthorRetroguruPort AuthorArtur "zear" RojekProject PageXump - The Final Run is a simple multi-platform puzzler by Retroguru. Initially released by Psilocybin Development in 2005 the game has been improved in almost every aspect you can imagine. New graphics, new levels, new music, new options, new everything...
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 dissolveable 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 deminded by Xump when staying on this specific field for a short moment. Certainly the mission sounds easier than it will be.
Mindblasting frustration deluxe!Publication DateFriday, 20 Jun 2014Original AuthorRetroguruPort AuthorArtur "zear" RojekProject PageSqrxz requires fast reflexes and is a simply mindblasting Jump’n’Run puzzle game with high frustration factor originally made in 1996 by Marcus Vesterlund (Maze) and John Holmvall (Hojo) for DOS and Windows 9x.
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 was 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!

A simple caveflying game.Publication DateTuesday, 20 May 2014Original AuthorKuniPort AuthorAlekmaulProject PageIn Spout, your goal is to guide your ship as high as possible through a vertical cave of sorts without crashing. The path is blocked though, and you must destroy the walls and ceiling to clear your way. Sounds easy, but there's a catch to the game, you don't have a gun to blast your way through - instead you must use the exhaust from your ship to erode away any surroundings that hinder your way, which can result in some tricky maneuvers. There is also time limited check points that adds a bit of urgency to the gameplay.
The map is randomly generated so it's always a fresh challenge, and the game is great for a quick play because of the simple premise, and because it's just plain fun.

Flashback engine reimplementation.Publication DateSunday, 06 Oct 2013Original AuthorGregory Montoir (Cyx)Port AuthorElwingProject PageAbout:
REminiscence is a Flashback engine reimplementation. As a cinematic platformer, Flashback features gameplay similar to that of 1989's Prince of Persia. Each level spans a large number of non-scrolling screens, nearly all of which feature multiple levels of altitude �" requiring the player character Conrad to jump, grab onto ledges, climb, use elevators, and drop onto lower levels. Conrad exhibits realistic human running speed and jumping ability, as well as realistic weakness �" he will die if he falls from too great a height.
Conrad also carries a pistol with unlimited ammunition, a force shield (which absorbs a certain number of shots before needing recharging), and a portable force field (which can act as a barrier to deflect enemies' laser shots).
As Conrad progresses through the game's seven levels, he is increasingly presented with spatial puzzles, requiring the player to discover how to guide him toward his destination. Late in the game, Conrad receives a teleportation device, and is able to progress by throwing the device into areas that he would otherwise be unable to reach.
Flashback is not a free game, to be able to play it with this new engine you need
the game data. This port should support all the file formats supported by Cyx's
* Required data:
The DOS PC game data, both the floppy and the CD-ROM versions are supported.
The Amiga mod files can be added to get music during the cinematics.
The SegaCD speech file (voice.vce) for in-game speech.
REminiscence by default will create a folder for the data and the savefile if it did not exist before. Thus you can either:
1) copy the opk on the GCW0
2) run the opk once
3) copy the datafile in "/usr/local/home/.REminiscence/data"
4) start the opk again and enjoy the game
1) copy the opk on the GCW0
2) create the folder and copy the datafile in "/usr/local/home/.REminiscence/data"

A retro platformer.Publication DateThursday, 03 Oct 2013Original AuthorArtur "Zear" Rojek, Andreas "Harteex" Bjerkeholt, Thorin "Topy" Hopkins, Daniel "Danik" KvarfordtProject PageUMG is an oldschool platformer. By oldschool we mean 80s, Grey Brick style, but without the blur. "So what" you might say, seeing as everybody seems to be doing that right now. We don't do gimmicks, physics engines, or flashy colourful graphics. Actually, we don't do colours at all. Instead our focus is on gameplay. There are a lot of potentially good platform games out there that fail miserably due to badly thought through leveldesign, annoying gimmicks, or because the jump height of your character is just a few pixels off what you think it should be. So our biggest focus is on getting it just right. If you fail at UMG, you will know it is because you made a mistake, not because of the game not doing what you expected it to.

Graphical roguelike.Publication DateSaturday, 06 Jul 2013Original AuthorJeff LaitPort AuthorArtur "zear" RojekProject PageTo understand POWDER, you should first understand roguelikes. "Roguelike" is a term applied to a wide variety of games which share a common inspiration from the game Rogue. A non-exhaustive list of such games would be: ADOM, Nethack, Crawl, Diablo (I … II), Moria, and Angband. My apologies to the many excellent roguelikes I didn't list. What characterizes these games? The exact specifications are a matter of debate - indeed, I may receive hate mail for including Diablo - but I shall try to write a few:
Tactical play. The unit of action is based on the individual adventurer. The game is not twitch oriented (like Quake, rewarding reflexes … well trained actions) nor is it strategy oriented (like Civilizations or Warcraft, requiring working on the large picture)
Based in Hack and Slash. A roguelike isn't primarily about plot development or telling a story. It is about killing things and acquiring treasure.
Random games. A roguelike is a dungeon crawler where no two games are the same. The maps are different, the items are different, there are no guaranteed win paths.
Permadeath. You die, that is it. No restoring a savegame. Good roguelikes delete your save game after loading them. This is compensated by the replayability of the game.
Complex interactions of properties. While the commands for a roguelike are simple, the potential interactions are not. My favourite example is equipping a silver ring as a weapon in order to damage a creature vulnerable to silver, but not one's other weapons. [Editor: This matches the Hack branch of the roguelike tree, not the Angband branch]
Steam rolling monsters. If a critter is in your way, and weak, you shouldn't even notice it is there.
