PandoraPanic puts the call out

Remember Alf? He’s back, in pog form. Remember PandoraPanic? It never left. The WarioWare-inspired community project has been bubbling away in the background for the past year, absorbing new talent and minigames along the way. Recent developments include some retrolicious 16 bit graphics from Dragons_Slayer, and a WIP gameplay video from Rockthesmurf. Ubiquitous porting machine Pickle even has his hat in the ring.

But time is running out. PandoraPanic is planned for inclusion on the software CD being shipped with Pandora, and with production imminent, project patriarch PokeParadox is starting to feel the panic. Loose ends need to be tied, bugs need to be squashed, tees need to be crossed. There are even things non-programmers can assist with, like writing readme texts / instruction manuals, and PXML files. So how about it? Can you code, or write, or wax on/off? Would you like your name in the screen credits of a launch title, to be delivered in Pandora’s box?

To see what’s what and perhaps offer your services, drop in to the project thread. Your community will thank you.



  1. What an obscure Simpson’s reference… wish I could help, but this is my busiest time of year, otherwise I’d lend a hand 😦

  2. Pickle doesn’t sleep. That’s the only way I can figure it.

  3. Of course Pickle sleeps, but only during compiles.

  4. Take away his dev board if he can’t deliver! j/k 😛
    Can’t wait to give this a try on the Pandy.

  5. Don’t panic! You’ve still got 2 months to tie up the loose ends 🙂


  7. hmm, tried to contact someone from the proyect, yet nor a single soul/response.

  8. @DroneB
    Judging by the thread you’ve had a response now, wish you the best of luck with your contributions to the project.

  9. @DroneB: Sorry dude, I work unfortunately! 😉
    I can’t check the board every minute.

  10. No Prob Men, im here to help so lets get this thing ASAP

  11. Is there any other games that are going to be inlcuded on the software CD? I really hope it comes with alot ported games and emulators and maybe even a brief guide on where to get started for Pandora development. I don’t beleive it matters anyway cause we should all easily be able to download Pandora Panic.

  12. It won’t come with emulators and it wont come with a brief guide on where to get started for Pandora development or ports. All the stuff will be on the file archive http://dl.openhandhelds.org/cgi-bin/pandora.cgi

  13. that page seems so lonely and static

    hope when the pandora gets released, the comunity gets a really big repo to make things simple

    and it should be made simple if they really want to get a 2 and more batches
