Magical Broom Extreme Aros-i386 port by Farox

Magical Broom Extreme is a spectacular freeware horizontal shooter from Japan
developer Twin-Tail, with jaw-dropping 3D weapon effects and very good gameplay.
The player controls a witch, flying on a broom that can shoot, with the
objective to reach the end of each stage. The game have only one big level.

Left/Right .. for movement

z .. Single Shot (keep pressed and release for Special Shot)
x .. Bomb
c .. Autofire
v .. Special Shot (?)

It should also support Joystick or Pad (but i have not tested)

Esc .. Quit the game immediatly

original author:

Proper port of the game and also the Luna library by M-HT at

Aros port is done thanks to huge and very well done work by M-HT, that ported
and adapted the code from Windows/DirectX8.1 to Linux+SDL+OpenGL (compilable on
x86/x64 and ARM cpu and maybe other).
He released first for OpenPandora (SDL1) and later for DragonBox Pyra Handheld
(SDL2) the game. On Aros i used the SDL1 branch of the code.

To be able to run without problems you need an OpenGL enabled gfx card, at the
time only some GPU are able to offer such functionality, see at Aros x86
Hardware Compatibility (
) for a list of 3D enabled GPU.
If you try to run without 3D support Aros fallback to use Mesa for 3D and fps
will be very low, making the game unplayable.

I have included 2 version of the game: 
mbx-aros-i386 ..that run in windowed mode (640x480)
mbx-aros-i386_full .. that runs in fullscreen

I would like to thank AMIGASYSTEM that have created for me the icons, and also
all user at forum for help and testing.

Also included the source code i used.
