Oxyd - Description

Coming to Steam and Nintendo Switch in 2020, Oxyd is a multiplatform upgrade of an Atari ST and Amiga classic. Travel back to the days when a game’s mechanics were all that mattered. Your challenge in this arcade puzzler is to roll your marble around each level to collect the stones scattered throughout. If you think that sounds simple, you haven’t played Oxyd! Our new version will have all new graphics, hundreds of brain teasing levels, single player and multiplayer puzzles.

History

Founded in 1989, Dongleware is a small creative solo dev 'team'. Meinolf Amekudzi created legendary milestones in early gaming, such as Bolo, Esprit and Oxyd for the ATARI ST, Amiga, PC, Mac and NeXT platforms. Before the Oxyd series started, dongleware and Application Systems teamed up to release a game called Esprit just for the Atari ST in 1989. Soon after the first Oxyd (1990) has been released followed by Oxyd 2 (1991), Oxyd General Edition (1992), Oxyd magnum! (1993), Per.Oxyd (1995) and Oxyd extra (1996).

Features

  • Hundreds of challenging levels require thought, skill and dexterity.
  • Highly accurate physics.
  • Over 1000 elements lead to an unlimited number of puzzle challenges.
  • Classic single player and cooperative two player modes like in the original game.
  • New game modes: Cooperative multiplayer and competitive multiplayer for two and more players. Extreme challenge, single player meditation, multiplayer meditation, speedrun.
  • Unique underlying architecture allows profound modding.
