  1. HUENSION HIT STEAM It has passed a long time since the original release, but Huenison has just landed on Steam, and this is quite good news for the following reasons:  * who bought the game from any other place has been assigned a free Steam key;  * the game has been enhanced further since its original release, and now benefits from the improvements listed below;  * for a whole week the game can be purchased with a whopping launch discount of 20%! Steam gamers will not only experience the excitement of the game itself, but will also be able to collect: * 14 achievements; * 5 trading cards; * 6 badges; * 5 emoticons; * 3 backgrounds. Moreover, they can also get hold of the AmigaOS 4 version as a freely downloadable DLC.     https://www.youtube.com/watch?list=PLTcu31bC_SYlKzlHJZ3kX-NC3nNHak0-y&v=1V6be4P3wlE     NEW FEATURES * Added ALL LEVELS bonus. * Added 5x CRT dots mode. * Added screenshot feature (press [PRINT] to take screenshots). * Gave Huenison's face a different color at each interlude.   BUG FIXES * Reworked video initialization:    * allowed running in window on 16-bit screens;    * worked around libSDL 1.2.13 bugs on AmigaOS;    * handled case of no resolutions returned by SDL_ListModes(). * Worked on disturbances upon level completion:    * fixed disappearing of BADLINES;    * ensured that disturbances are never generated again after being disabled. * Activated BADLINES sound effect in FACE-OFF level. * Added fixed channel for speech to avoid it being interrupted. * Fixed surface leak in wiper cleanup. * Changed timing check of intro, so that, even if auto-pause kicks in, still the menu becomes active as soon as the speech ends.   OTHER IMPROVEMENTS * Moved RESTORE bonus notification to when it is achieved. * Moved hiscores saving to after player name is entered for more robustness. * Re-rendered final speech sample with two additional laughs. * Made audio halt immediately when pause is entered. * Redesigned icons. * Updated/improved notices/instructions/manual. * Made a minor optimization in menu. * Made other minor changes.   ABOUT THE GAME Inspired by a variety of classics including Arkanoid, Space Invaders and Tetris, Huenison is a frantic-paced hybrid of shoot 'em up and colour-matching puzzle game presented in neo-retro, unique visual styles. Piloting a small mobile cannon back and forth across the bottom of a well, you must cycle through your six coloured beams, firing at the descending onslaught of corresponding coloured bricks. Missed shots bring the deadly zapper closer to your cannon, and missed bricks raise the ground they touch. With 25 levels, multiple boss battles, 9 different game modes, kick-ass chiptunes and a ludicrous variety of brick types, Huenison is all about racking up bonuses and score chaining. Your goal? To achieve the top position on the online highscore table and, while at it, to save the world!   website Facebook page Steam page    
  2. Hi everybody, yesterday it was the 5th anniversary of BOH and I could not find a better way to celebrate the event than releasing a brand-new edition that majestically closes the incredible evolution the game underwent since its original release. The 5th Anniversary Edition:  * includes all the updates released previously;  * reworks the video modes handling (full screen by default; window on 16-bit screens allowed; more robust; etc.);  * adds the CRT and LCD pixel modes;  * adds the 5x zoom;  * adds 5 new missions, bringing the total to a massive 60;  * assigns the pause to the [ESCAPE] key (instead of a specific key), which thus no longer causes the immediate abort of the current mission;  * reworks the menu controls (more keys; do not depend anymore on the in-game controls configuration);  * adds the emergency configuration reset (assigned to the key [F12]);  * adds the screenshot functionality (assigned to the key [F1]);  * makes quitting by means of [ALT]+[F4] available on all platforms;  * sets the default URL for records submission to http://www.retream.com/BOH (it is no longer necessary to specify such URL manually in the configuration file);  * replaces the copy code with an email address for the records submission;  * updates the manuals;  * applies many other optimizations/changes/fixes, for more performance, polish and robustness. It comes on a new CD image that contains:  * the AmigaOS, AROS, Linux, MacOS and Windows versions;  * universal installers that can install the game from scratch or update any previous version;  * the soundtrack (CD-quality audio files and print-quality jewel case materials). It is now available also from IndieGameStand*, besides Desura*, Gameolith* and, of course, the official website. Users can download it for free from http://www.retream.com/BOH/download.php?ID=code (where "code" is the personal copy code). The demos have been updated to reflect the changes. *Please note that it might take a few days before the updated version appears on these shops.
