How do you get out of the pit/climb the vines (near the end(?) of the first level)?

(Also: needs more waypoints and less iffy controls :P)

What about Sound FX and Particles?

Great game! I already loved the previous instalments. This one is no way worse, on the contrary, it is a worthy sequel.

tomaes: You have to jump on the bat. When hitting the bat, you must press space in order to jump higher.

Here's the MODs from the game: http://16-bits.org/etc/sqrxz4_music.zip
I reverse engineered the ZDA data format (ZDA header + numFiles + file map). They're ZLIP compressed, then comes a patternized XOR encryption.

I could've asked the musicians for the MODs, but where's the fun in that?
Scene games should be open source in my opinion. If not, at least not make the data encrypted! Also the game tends to crash before it comes to the main screen. :-)

Hi, I'm the (main) SQRXZ devr
thx for your comments

game crashes ? which platform?
Open source? ask Kojote...
Unfortunately, some artists do not work for free and we want to keep some controls on our productions.
The encryption was not too difficult to hack :)
btw, all the music tracks are accessible in option menu

Thor, the presentation has gone slightly nuts due to the Dreamcast-CD being scratched... was not able to boot anymore... so on the stream you have seen the game crashing. Nothing to worry :) As emergency we took the Windows 32-Bit version for presentation (for what we had 13 supported systems anyway... so 13 backup plans! - where others stop with plan a and b or maybe c we had far more choice!) :)

eightbitbubsy, you could have at least ask as it's not your work you are pulling apart. It's not like we would say no... and I do not share your opinion that every demoscene production should be open source, sure it would be a nice thing to have, but try to demand all demos should go open source...

psenough, if you think this game is "giana sisters" like - try to play it and realize it isn't.

all others, thanks for the flowers :) see you at sqrxz 5! :D

Nice! Keep the platformer love burning! This will keep me occupied until Thor's Neo Geo Pocket game arrives! One 💙 Love
