Dingoo starts the decade with a lotta goodies …

Hokey folks, the turps have worn off, and it is evident from Dingoonity that there have been lots of action while I was festivusing! There have been some great releases since Boxing Day, starting with OpenGGS:

Zear has ported Openggs, another Great Giana Sisters remake.

So.. we have Giana�s Return and Winter Jumper. You think that's enough of Giana Sisters?

Gianna’s return:

Giana's Return v0.997
January 1st, 2010

HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM THE GIANA'S RETURN TEAM Smiley

Giana's Return aims to be a worthy inofficial sequel of "The Great Giana Sisters". "The Great Giana Sisters" is an alltime classic Jump'N'Run game made in the late eighties mainly by Armin Gessert, Manfred Trenz and Chris H�lsbeck and gained massive attention as "Super Mario" copy, but still had it's very own charm and fanbase.
