R'n'D jue 2022 games collection released!2022-06-16
Three years to the day after the release of the special edition “R’n’D jue II” in 2019, Jürgen Bonhagen presents “R’n’D jue 2022”, which is not a single game or level collection, but a collection of five independent stand-alone games based on the R’n’D game engine, but using completely different artwork, new game concepts, and some of them even totally new game mechanics, which are not played with a game controller or keyboard, but with the mouse or touch input!
R’n’D jue Pipeline
One of the absolute highlights of this new games collection is undoubtedly the game “Pipeline”, a great puzzle game that can be played completely using only the mouse or, on touch screens, your fingers! (In fact, an Android version that can perfectly be played on a tablet will be available soon).
The goal of the game is to connect individual pieces of pipe to form a continuous pipe from a source to a destination field. But that’s not all by far – there is a whole series of different obstacles to overcome on the way to each level’s solution!
This game features three level sets: A tutorial level set with 14 levels to learn the game elements and new mechanics, the main game with 100 levels, divided into three parts with increasing difficulty, and a special “pure” level set, with 25 levels using only the most basic game elements.
To learn the game mechanics, a dedicated online manual with screenshots and videos is available for this new game!
R’n’D jue Puzznic
The second highlight of the collection is a completely revised variant of the already known game “Puzznic”, that was also part of “R’n’D jue II”, but that is completely re-invented using only mouse click mechanics to play the levels.
To solve a level, connect two or more “Puzznic” elements to make them disappear until no elements are left on the playfield. What sounds simple at first is a fascinating challenge in 100 levels.
R’n’D jue Sokoban
This is the third highlight of the collection, containing the completely new “Sokoplus”, which takes the familiar gameplay of Sokoban to a whole new experience by adding a number of new game elements, creating a challenging new game of its own.
A total of 60 brand new levels is waiting for you, divided into 10 tutorial levels that introduce the new game elements and uncomplicated rules, followed by 50 more challenging levels for hours of fun!
R’n’D jue BD/EM
Another game in this collection is dedicated to fans of classic Boulder Dash and Emerald Mine, but with a modern look and new levels. Many of the 175 levels of this game were part of previous versions of “R’n’D jue”, but are remixed here with lots of newly designed levels that are divided into two level sets, a first one with 100 levels of moderate difficulty, and a second set of 75 levels for those who like more tricky challenges.
R’n’D jue II
A “final version” of this well-known game is included in the collection for all those who like to use Jürgen Bonhagen game artwork to play a lot of hand-picked level sets from Boulder Dash, Emerald Mine, Sokoban, the R’n’D contributions and, not to forget, Jürgen Bonhagen’s own level sets!
Screenshots, Videos, Documentation and Downloads
The whole new R’n’D jue 2022 games collection with downloads for Windows, Mac, and Linux plus a lot of screenshots, videos and game documentation is now available from Jürgen Bonhagen’s web site, both in English and in German!
Download packages for Android, which are especially desirable for the new games “Pipeline” and “Puzznic”, will be available soon!
