    Duyumania is a Nintendo DS puzzle homebrew game that almost made it to DSiware. Long story short: three separate companys say yes to publish it and then back down months later using the tactic of no more answer to emails. So since I don't gonna make a cent with the game at least I release it so everybody can play it.

    Download Duyumania 1


    Emulators info:
    no$gba and no$zoomer works perfect.
    DeSmuME, go to emulation/gba slot and select "compact flash" in the tab, and down there mark "folder" and select this folder uncompressed:

    Is it just me or images doesn't display?
    I like puzzle games but the sentence "puzzle game" is a bit big :P

    Wow, thanks for releasing it, will test it as soon as I will have the time to.
    By the way may I ask what did you used to make it? Devkitpro with some libraries or official kit?

    :D It's Duyumania. This was one of those homebrew games that I thought was pretty amazing (if I remember correctly, it was an entry for the neoflash competition or something a while back). While it sucks that you didn't get it as a DSiWare, being able to play it on my DS...well, bluntly put, at least you made one user happy without getting any money from it.

    I think you should put the video trailer in the op.

    Anyway, just made it through the first 3 levels. This is a pretty nice game. At first it felt a little weird using the buttons and stylus in a platformer, but then it made a lot of sense. I really liked it :)

    Thanks for sharing your game, Cuesta =) I like the concept of it.
    I can only imagine that Mario would be in Santa's place had it been published heh=)

    edit: /me checks dsi mode....
    edit2: nopes, black screen, but that's ok.

    It looks amazing! Great work! Reminds me of Mario vs. Donkey Kong meets Toki Tori though.
    Well, anyway, jaws dropped! :D

    Hmm a puzzle game with Santa?

    *edit: Works fine with DSTT but only through HDMenu, otherwise you'll get invisible sprites.
    I'm already liking it, thanks Cuesta. :yaynds:

    Hmm... I like this idea. I might copy it to the Micro SD and give it a shot. I do wonder if a source will be released, though.

    That's awesome :) Reminds me a bit of Bob's Game, except that besides a demo it was never released to the public.

    Tested, and... it is a great game!! though i think that it was to similar to mario to be published, the ui is the same, the backgrounds too, even the characters look like mario's :s
