Sorry to keep you waiting so long - but here they are:


All entries of the Pandora Rebirth Competition (in alphabetical order).


Feel free to download them and try them out - voting will start next weekend.


To the developers: Feel free to update your entries and do bugfixing as much as you like.


In case you are a developer who submitted an entry which didn't appear here:


Please contact me ASAP so we can sort that out and add your entry.


But enough talking - get ready to download.


Ballion by Juergen Urban (Original Entry)





Ballion is based on the C64 game Crillion. This is a Breakout clone where you have to destroy blocks with a ball.


If you copy a file music.mp3 to pandora/appdata/ballion/sound/, it will play the music. You can copy your own created levels to pandora/appdata/ballion/levels. The file for the first level is "level00". You need to extract the ballion.pnd to get the existing levels and a description of the binary format.

cpuVextor by johnnysnet (Original Entry)





A very simple clone of escapeVektor by Nnooo, made for the Open Pandora Rebirth Competition, written in GLBasic. Unfortunately I had the idea too late so I started to write this game about 3 weeks before the deadline. Because of this the game is very unfinshed. There are only a few levels included, only basic gameplay provided and a lack of nice background music and good sound effects.

Thank you ED for posting all the games. I downloaded them all and will be giving them a try.


Nevertheless, there is a mistake in one of the download URLs: In "Download Fall to Win", the link is the same one as for the above, DosBox Games Pnd Creator. Copy-Paste error :ph34r: .


=) I am very glad everyone was interested. Sadly I didn't have the time to participate. A psp emulator would have been great, wouldn't it? Maybe next time. The prices are simply Awesome.


Btw, I remember seeing a 3d shooter called "Xenoblast or No bugs allowed" whose video I liked a lot. Didn't it made it on time?


Thank you again. Excellent idea to bring attention to the Pandora. I received mine last November, and It's just marvelous. The best thing ever (apart from my better half :wub: ) worth waiting for!


Hope to decide for my vote(s) soon!! Congratulations to all the developers!


Saludos (from Mexico City),


Israel.

Very Nice line up. I know everyone came for qemu, but Beta Block Quest, and open dune were nice surprises. The new overlay kill menu was a much needed addition.

All very nice entries, now I need the time to try them all :)


Could someone fix the Names for qemu? Should be IngoReis and mcobit.


Also a link to the wikipage would be nice: http://pandorawiki.org/Qemu_for_Pandora


Edit: Also, for any questions, that are not answered in the wiki about QEMU, please post into the thread in the rebirth competition section.


We will try to get some pre-build images of freedos, drdos, reactos and with some freewaregames for instant playability on eds server today.


These will be announced in the rebirth competition section then.


Have a lot of fun!
