Marc the Superkid, however odd it may sound, is amazing. Its unique battle system and good story line prove the dedication of the author to the project. The many secrets and ideas all over the place in MtS is simply too much to do on one go-around. You are forced to play it again.

The graphics are suberb, and the enemies and levels, though difficult, are possible to overcome, given time. The many levels of play only supports the ability to play it again and again, though eventually it gets repetitive.

The learning of special moves is a great touch, and though I have used this system, and have seen it elsewhere, the author of MtS improves upon it, making it integral to the battle system.

Speed: 10/10

Great speed

Gameplay: 9/10

Great system, but difficult

Replay: 7/10

Great replay value, but you're just doing the same thing only more difficult.

Graphics: 10/10

Amazing graphics, that are as fast as any I've seen.

Resources: 6/10

Okay, so its huge, but its all in 1 App!

Overall: 8/10

Worth it! This game will keep you and your friends occupied.

Hrm... I can't be bothered about size on my 84+SE, so I can only give this game a 10/10. It has wonderful graphics, gameplay and storyline, with very few, if any bugs (I've yet to find one). It has a ton of features and SO much gameplay. I applaud. Desolate style greyscale would be good, however.

Graphics: 100/100

Storyline: 95/100

Ease of use: 100/100

Originality: 100/100

Replay value: 100/100

Overall: 99/100, 9.9/10, whatever you want to call it! It is truly amazing!

Despite being 81k it is an amazing program. On an 83+ or 83+ silver you may have troubles playing it, but on an 84+ you will have no trouble playing it but seeing as you only get 400K archive 81k is actually a lot. My friends with 84+ SE have no problem. I suggest 84+/SE but 83+/SE works just fine.

Download this! You will NOT regret it! It is an amazing program! You will not be disappointed trust me!

Even though “Marc” weighs in at a full 81k (which is miniscule on my TI-83+SE) and is hard to get onto some of my friends calcs (most have 83+'s), it's awesome.

The combat system, while not intuitive, is easy to use and engaging, especially with the Arts. The scroll system of buying new Hyper Arts and the training room to learn Super Arts really are a great way of adding to the experience.

The storyline's pretty good, and the game definitely took longer than any of Mark's previous games (and I've been playing them since the beginning). I've just beaten it the first time and am playing through for a second... or third... or fourth...

I've gotten a few of my friends hooked and they say they love the game. In this game's sequel (which Mark should definitely make), I'd like to see full grayscale, á la “Desolate”.

Graphics: 9/10

“Marc the Superkid Quest” rocks! I normally don't like RPGs, but this one surpasses all of the others by a long shot. Good graphics, a decent story line, and a great fighting system make the game even better. The one thing I don't like is that during battles, you have to guess your HP after each attack. It would be nice to at least have a little bar on the top to show your HP. The same goes form the enemy's HP too. This is the only downside. I've played the game for a month, but I've only uncovered 3 of the 5 endings.

Rating: 9.7/10

“MTSQ” is a very good game, for a few key reasons. It does not have great graphics. It does not have an incredible fighting system. It does not have the most engrossing storyline of the last four years. But what it does do, is manage to be better than average in all of these areas. It is not ugly, but rather pretty actually. The fighting will not keep you on pins and needles, but it will make you want to play more. The storyline writing will not win a “Pulitzer,” but is more than adequate enough to make you care. So this game manages to do all this in a reasonably long quest, while adding manageable puzzles and an intriguing scroll system. I suggest you play this game, because the programmer obviously cared about this project. And that is the best mark of a good game, when the programmer cared.

“Marc the Superkid Quest” (“MtsQuest”) is probably one of the best RPGs out for the TI. Unlike most TI RPGs, the game isn't all fighting. There's an interesting, well-designed plotline behind it, as well as different endings and touching messages from the last two bosses (of some relation to the main character). Statistically, “MtsQuest” is pretty good. The game has pretty good graphics. Despite a whopping 81 KB size, it will keep many players occupied for weeks!

Overall rating: 8/10
How Addicting?: 8.5/10 (However, this game WILL get boring after a long while).
Size: -1/10 (81 KB is a heck lot)!

Note! This review was written for a previous version of this file!

Truly a Must have for all calculators that can use applications its an APP making it fast it reminds me a lot of "Legend of Legia." This game has had me entertained for at least 2 weeks before I started playing other games (actually my friend kept begging me to play during lunch the time, I usually get to play)

gameplay-10 easy to use and with graphics :)

Story-8 Save girlfriends it's been done but still fun

Replay value-9 with 5 endings you will have a lot of fun trying to try to get them all assuming one game takes half an hour I play for like 2 weeks and only seen 2 endings

This is a portable RPG for your calculator in black and white and is excellent.
