Software News   Software News : New software company/New Amiga game
   posted by Insane-Software on 14-Apr-2007 2:04:30 (3534 reads)
We are very happy to announce you our engagement for the Amiga platform and the release of our newest software title

Amijeweled RTG

Do you like puzzle games? Amijeweled is an addictive puzzle game and you will like it for sure. Build rows and columns of three or more diamonds by swapping adjacent diamonds. If you manage to build a row or column of three or more diamonds of equal color this way, they will vanish and the diamonds above will fall down into the gap. For every row or column you will get points and, depending on the game mode, more time.



Play Amijeweled against time, if you seek the really big challenge. Or advance from level to level playing the level mode, get as much points as possible and try to win against the absolute king of Amijeweled, Dr. Braun!

Amijeweled is available as full version for only EUR 7,-, if you choose the email download. Additionally, you can choose a CD version for only EUR 12,- which will be sent to you by mail, within a very nice hardcover.

Of course you will find a demo version of Amijeweled for free download on our pages, too.

You can play Amijeweled RTG with almost every fast RTG-equipped Amiga, please test with the demo version, if your machine fulfills the requirements.

Please, visit us at our homepage, we are looking forward to you!

With kind regards

Hey, nice looking game. I love Bejeweled, so I'm going to have to give this a go. The price is sure right, and it's always good to see new games.

Now if you can do a Zuma clone...

Nice game! It's really addicting.

On my Micro-A1, it plays runs well for the first time. When the game is over it quits (because it's not registered yet). When I run it for the second time, I get a DSI error. If I ignore, everything seems to run fine again.

AmiJeweled is a really nice remake of the popular game Bejeweled, to be honest I always wanted to have this game on the Amiga. I only have one problem with AmiJeweled, which is that to swap 2 diamonds you have to click each one seperately. In the Palm version of Bejeweled you can just press down on one diamond and move the pen over to another diamond next to it, and then releasing it will swap the two. It's much easier/faster to play that way, makes for a much more fluid and enjoyable gameplay, so if this feature is added to AmiJeweled, I'll definitely buy it!

New game, interesting.

New software company, VERY interesting. It'd be nice to see a steady flow of Amiga specific games.

/me starts thinking... Chris_Y & Mr Capehill, you guys thinking what I'm thinking? Time for waffles :-p

Hello!

First of all: Many, many thanks for all your wishes and praise. We really appreciate it and it is a strong motivation for us. We are very sorry that we were not active here for a so long time, but we had a very long night, preparing the release and satisfying our first customers. But now it is time to answer the questions you have.

@PR & Moxee: It should run without problems. We tested it thouroughly on a A1 machine and it works there like charm.

@firbodi: If you wish, we could investigate together, where the DSI is coming from. We are very interested in an (to the extend) error free program and will do all we can to achieve this. Do not hesitate to mail us or use our forum regarding this problem, so we can search for the cause and remove it, if possible.

@AmigaPapst: Thank you very much :) You will soon get answer to your question you mailed to us.


@AmiKit: We are very unhappy about this too, and will try to do our best to get better shipment conditions for the CD versions of our products. If this conditions will change, we will announce this immediatley. Btw., please check your mail ;)


@Toaks: Yes, it was a painful bug we introduced to the shopping script. We hope that this issue is solved now, test transactions of both sites worked well. We received your answer and appreciate your very, very generous offer very, very much! Thank you!


@Cobra: we noticed your suggestion and it will for sure be influent for possible successors of Amijeweled!


We hope that we have answered all your questions to your satisfaction. If another questions or problems araise, do not hesitate to contact us or post here. We will read the comments section from time to time and will answer any further questions with pleasure.

We really appreciate the praise and the critics too, as it shows to us, that we have chosen the right way. We will go this way further, as far as we can get!

With kind regards

I have enjoyed playing flash versions of Bejewelled, so this Amiga release is a lovely little game to play around with.

I had a quick bash of the demo under WinUAE, and the only thing that I have against it is the speed it reacts to your clicks - just seems a little slow to react when clicking. Aside from that I enjoyed playing it.

Hello!

We had an exciting Saturday, full of work. We did not even dream of this overwhelming resonance to Amijeweled and are a little bit proud of it, that we achieved this!

It is Sunday now, very nice weather here in Germany (summer in april? No joke! ;) and one shouldn´t work today, but it is so much fun to do this work for the Amiga community, that we will nonetheless do the work from time to time on this nice, sunny day. Thank you very much for this fun!

The reason for posting here again is the GrimReaper problem that appeared. We found the cause, but it is uncertain at the moment, if it´s the fault of Amijeweled itself or the fault of some commodities. The cause is the color change management for the special Amijeweled mouse pointer. If you type "CURSOR=NO" within the Tooltypes of the Amijeweled icon, the GrimReaper will not visit you anymore. Please use this temporary solution until we solved the problem either by updating Amijeweled or the respective commodities. If an update of Amijeweled is necessary, our customers will receive it immediately per mail.

With kind regards

Hallo,

I'm happy to see that new game came out. It is a dream for me who likes such games.
In fact i've "Jewel Quest" on my mobile phone and play it often.

Have you planned to make only puzzle games or also RPG/adventure games (or other kind of)?

Are you thinking about "re"making old games like "R" or "Osiris"? These are also nice and addictive puzzles game.

Thanks for you great Job!

Nicola

@Insane-Software

Please also make a chess game. Puzzle games are fun. If they're not too expensive
people will buy them in droves.

Keep up the good work.

@samwel:

Thank you very much! Chess games would be an option, if we would have more experience in mathematics No, really, a good chess game isn´t that easy to develop. But we will discuss this topic for sure, as we want to build up a rich portfolio of 2D games of all classes.

@OS4 & MOS users:

We searched for the DSI cause eventually at a totally wrong place. Please raise the stack amount within the Amijeweled icon tooltypes, today we managed to get the DSIs on our machine, too, and solved it finally by raising the stack. It seems, that Petunia has different stack demands under certain circumstances, that we couldn´t foresee. This seems to concern Trance on MOS, too.

We are seriously interested in feedback about this topic, so please do not hesitate to drop us a notice here or by email, if this solution really cured the DSI (OS4) / crash (MOS) problem for you.

Thank you very much for your interest!

With kind regards

I have played the PC DEMO of Puzzle Quest and it really flashed me. Its a very similar gameplay I think. the difference is the story driven RPG elements in it. I think this would be an very good feature in a possible part 2 of the game. what do you think of it?

regards Mark
