[GAME] Kobo Deluxe port

Post by Riviera71 » Sun May 29, 2011 2:19 am

Shooting game

Kobo Deluxe is an enhanced version of Akira Higuchi's game XKobo for Un*x systems with X11.

Original website:

Kobo Deluxe is a 3rd person scrolling 2D shooter with a simple and responsive control system - which you'll need to tackle the tons of enemy ships that shoot at you, chase you, circle around you shooting, or even launch other ships at you, while you're trying to destroy the labyrinth shaped bases. There are 50 action packed levels with smoothly increasing difficulty, and different combinations of enemies that require different tactics to be dealt with successfully.

Original author:
David Olofson

PSP Porter:


direction: arrows buttons or joystick
fire: CROSS
menu: START
pause: SELECT


not signed(CFW and HEN):


Sorry there is no sound for the moment !

Thanks! It's great to hear you like my work - especially at a time when I'm
mostly hacking and sometimes wondering what on earth I'm doing! :-D
(That would be Kobo II, BTW - a commercial sequel/tribute with modern

There are, or at least, have been some issues with the sound engine... Have
you tried the development tree over at beijingcode?

Can you run Valgrind, or at least a proper debugger on the target system, to
get some hinst as to what goes wrong?

Sure, I have no problem with that! :-) And, some publicity can't hurt. ;-)



Good play ! ;)

I like games like these. The psp go controls are just to small to play the game comfortably :x . Gotta go me a psp 3000 for these homebrews :D
