R'N'D JUE II released !
What is R'N'D JUE ?
It is a computer game and also a tool for game development - available for the operating systems Linux, Mac and Windows. R'n'D JUE uses the same source code as the "classic" Rocks'n'Diamonds by Holger Schemel, a program that was first released in 1995 and is still being developed today.
In contrast, R'n'D Jue is primarily designed as a platform for puzzle games. In this sense, skill games such as Boulder Dash or Emerald Mine have also been transformed - more or less - into brainteasers. Also the CE based game engines follow this line.
Over and above it presents itself with a much more extensive graphics and sound repertoire. While the classic version reflects the traditions of the early computer years and maintains an authentic layout, R'n'D JUE uses the largely unknown design features of the original program for its own style.
Already in the year 2002 "Jue Level Sets" could be loaded inside the classic R'n'D and in 2007, the so called "R'n'D JUE" was first released as a separate program with own default settings and an own profile.
R'n'D Jue II (2019)
After a long break there is a new version (starting with 1.0.0) available now, which presents itself in a strongly changed form. For former users, the HD resolution of 1920x1200 pixels, which is based on a redesign of the entire graphics, is probably the most striking thing.
The menu has been filled with a lot of new content and also offers numerous improved standards. All existing screens are animated, there is an integrated help system, more interactive switches for better usability and much more.
The integrated Level Creator has been completely redesigned, making it clearer and more convenient to use. Of course, the most important thing, namely the game itself, has not been neglected, which means: new puzzle challenges are waiting to be solved.
