    After Sqrxz saving Yve in “Sqrxz 3 – Adventure for Love” it was truly a happy moment. Being still heavily in love they decided that the time for a tiny wedding ceremony has come. The celebration party was marvellous and still people talk about this heart breaking moment. Couple of months later both were sure that the time for an own small family has come.

    Although those are happy news Sqrxz is consequently short of money and a growing family requires a solid financial base. Picking up a newspaper and reading the job offers, a single add caught Sqrxz’s attention. An expedition in search of ice marbles needs a brave explorer. After all, he has gone trough a deep jungle to rescue Yve and made it back. This sounds like a job for Sqrxz!

    After meeting Dr. Branxz, who looked a bit creepy and shady, the deal has been set up and Sqrxz is brought to a mysterious island… full of shiny ice marbles. “Not a single one should be left there”, Dr. Branxz said, that just one missing marble will result in a pay refusal and not taking Sqrxz home. If you think Dr. Branxz didn’t do his homework, he very well did: His spy satellites spotted exactly 354 marbles. Challenging, isn’t it?

    Installation

    In the zip there are the Cia file and a folder with the 3dsx and the smdh files inside, to be used with a homebrew launcher. All the resources are included in the executable using romfs.

    The game creates a sqrxz4 subfolder inside the 3ds folder if doesn't exist.

    For now there is only sqrxz4, but 2 could be the next one.

    I'm happy you like the game, I think ir's a very nice game and harder than cat mario.

    Wich version did you tested? Cia or 3dsx?

    3dsx I would test the CIA version but I'm stuck on the 11.0 train. One bug I found is that the background flickers when I'm the options menu

    Not want to spoil the fun, but if you are really badly stuck, there is a longplay of part 4 on YouTube. nop90 and the rest of the Retroguru team can not be held responsible, if you trash your 3DS :) If the game is too hard for you, please go ahead and play golf.

    Don't know if thst is a bug, I have to check the Windows version to see if it's the same.

    When I saw it for me was a way to not have a static bacground while in the menu

    Thanks. I already fixed the problem and I'm waiting that Kojote upload the new package.

    I'll make you know when the update is available so you can download the fixed version.

    There will be few more Retroguru games on the way :) And not to forget a totally new one, not yet released, during February 2017. Please allow us some time in between, after all it's just a hobby for everyone. nop90 really does a great job here.

    I suck at Platform games and this one is really hard, so the highscore table is untested.

    Someone more skilled could test it and let me know if it's ok?

    Thank you. If you close the game and launch it again, your record is still there?
