This is a release of Cpasjuste port of OpenBOR to the Vita and Switch, based on Cpasjuste's original port and Plombo's work before that.

I created a .vpk and .nro from Cpasjuste's port and made some improvements (see changelog below).

OpenBOR is a continuation of the Beats Of Rage 2D game engine, which was originally created by the wonderful folks over at Senile Team.
