PYSCONIAN Deluxe for POKITTO®

Pysconian is a mega addictive space shooter made for the Pokitto opensource game console (www.pokitto.com). The game is loosely based on the arcade classic Bosconian.

  • D-pad - turn player ship
  • Button A - Fire
  • Button B - Activate Powerup
  • Button C - Pause

Changing music tracks: press left & right while in PAUSE mode

IMPORTANT NOTE about Pokitto Windows emulator:

Windows emulator has limited sound support and no support for saving highscores.

You can only get the FULL EXPERIENCE on a real Pokitto device.

SCORING



INSTALLING AND PLAYING THE GAME

On Pokitto:

  • copy MUSIC directory in ZIP file to your SD game disk 
    the end result should be SD/MUSIC/Pysc1.raw ...
  • copy PYSCODX.POP to a directory on SD card
    (I recommend 2Arcade directory)
  • use Kraken loader to load PYSCODX.POP

 On Windows:

  • extract PyscoDX_Win_emu.zip
  • run PyscoDX.exe

BEFORE YOU DOWNLOAD

Pysconian was 7 months in the making. Although you can download the game for free, consider giving a small donation to support more high-quality releases on Pokitto.
