  • Top 10 highscore.
  • Infinite continue mode.
  • Secrets to discover.


Available in CIA and 3DSX/SMDH formats. All the resources are included in the executable using romfs.

The game creates a sqrxz3 subfolder inside the 3ds folder if doesn't exist.

User guide


Sqrxz and his girlfriend were on a romantic adventure journey in a jungle somewhere here on our planet.

All of a sudden Yve gets kidnapped by an evil power and Sqrxz is forced to collect dozens of shiny little rings to free her.

The old ruins he has to explore are anything else than safe. Traps are spread all over the place... and... Sqrxz is not alone!
