Remember Boxy II? Yup, that’s the homebrew game with the Lumines-esque gameplay. Well, homebrew developer Ghoti is back with a new release, bumping the game up to version 0.7.1.

In case you haven’t the slightest idea how the game plays, here’s a bit of a primer. You get a set field like in Tetris, then 2 x 2 blocks start falling and you’ve got to keep them from stacking up (of course, when stacks reach the top of the field, it’s gameover). To get rid of the blocks, you have to form the squares of the same colored blocks and a sweep line will eliminate them. Boxy II has four game modes: Classic, Random, Chaos, and Frantic.

Anyway, in this release, Ghoti did ironed out some kinks in the game and made a couple of small changes. Here’s the changelog from the dev’s website:

Fixes

  • 222Mhz to run on higher firmwares that only can run 222Mhz
  • No music directory present bug fixed (Now you see why it exits.)
  • small bug in highscores
  • small speed fixes

As an added bonus, the dev also provided a PDF how-to on making your own themes. Well, you know the drill, check out the rest of the changelog, download the game, and enjoy.
