Kobo Deluxe

Author: David Olofson

Version: 0.51

Kobo Deluxe is an enhanced version of Akira Higuchi’s game XKobo for Un*x systems with X11. Kobo Deluxe adds sound, smoother animation, high resolution support, OpenGL acceleration (optional), an intuitive menu driven user interface, joystick support and other features. Recent versions also add a number of alternative skill levels with slightly modernized gameplay. Kobo Deluxe uses SDL for graphics, sound and input, which makes it possible to build and run the game on pretty much anything.

Update: Fixed double memory free on exit.

Update2: Added Vampire only exe that fixes colors and missing font display.


  • Minimum: Amiga with 68060 CPU, RTG card and 16MB ram
  • Recommended: Amiga with Vampire accelerator card

    Amazing. So much fun. I missed out on many of these old-school games. Thanks for helping preserve gaming history, and keeping 68K alive.

  3. This game is a real drug, a classic “last try and quit”. I’m level 34 and I can’t stop !!!

  4. I’m glad you like it 🙂

  5. Hello, how do I run this/configure it in FS-UAE to run? I either get not enough memory or waiting for bootable media. Many Thanks.

    • You need to boot into Workbench with AHI and RTG installed.

    • Or get AmiKit where this game is pre-installed.

      • Thank you! I’m trying to run this in FS-UAE configured as Amiga 4000 etc. However the game runs at around 0.5 frames a second. Do you have any advice/config options to improve the speed. I’m on a high spec machine. Currently trying to write a review for the game. Thank you 🙂

  6. Default A4000 setting is too low for this game. You need Fastest as possible CPU setting, not Exact.
