|Status||Released and playable|
Stu has ported Powermanga, a nice little addictive shmup, to the GP2X - it's pretty much feature complete at this point. The port is based on version 0.80 (latest at time of writing), available from http://linux.tlk.fr/games/Powermanga/.
This release should fix all remaining bugs:
- Pressing any button properly skips the intro video
- L & R were the wrong way round (currently they just mimic left & right, i.e. they move the ship left & right - but it was still a bug )
- High score entry now works properly! You can use up & down to cycle through the characters: ' ', A-Z and 0-9. Left & right move the cursor, and then A, B or the stick completes the name entry and saves the scores, which leads to the next point...
- High scores are properly saved & read back (there was an endian issue when reading & writing the file), so you can finally keep track of your top 5 Powermanga marathons

The porter has tried to adhere to the Common User Interface Recommendations as much as the default control scheme allows, and I guess it fits in rather nicely - directional controls plus a primary fire and a secondary powerup map rather well to handheld consoles ;-)
