Game Showcase: Beatboy

Today I will review Beatboy, a game made with Ruby.

Beatboy is a game made with the SFII90 engine. This game allows you to make your own beats with samples provide by the game or samples you provide yourself.

Its more of a toy than a game, but that didn’t stop me from spending a while playing it 😛
Try it out for yourself and tell me what you think in the comments!

To play this game you may have to install a few things..
1. Download a newer version of “opengl32.dll” from:

2. Move the new “opengl32.dll” to beatboy’s “bin” directory.  This will
probably be “C:\Program Files\beatboy\bin”.  It should overwrite the old
“opengl32.dll” file.

3. Also, if you don’t hear any sound from the game, try installing the
OpenAL drivers from:

Thanks Phillip for the fixes!
