A Plethora Of Programs From TCPA
Posted by Nick on 26 September 1999, 22:42 GMT

TCPA has, in the celebration of their one year anniversary, created a new website design and released many ports of old favorites and some entirely new programs.

New programs include:

Termites v1.0 for the 83 and the 83 Plus. This is a simple program involving many tiny dots ("termites") carrying larger dots ("wood chips") around the screen.

Block Dude (shown in the animated screenshot) for the 83 and the 83 Plus. This addictive puzzle game involves moving blocks to get to a target in 2-D.

Pegs v1.0 for the 83 and the 83 Plus. My personal favorite, Pegs is a puzzle game where you must match similar pegs together to eliminate them. The goal is to eliminate all the pegs.

Lite 3 for the 86. This two-player game requires you to light up three lights in a row.

Also, TCPA's popular game, Yoshi, has been ported to the 68K platforms: 89 and 92 Plus versions have been created.

We would like to express our thanks to TCPA for making such great programs. The 83 and 83 Plus programs have been designed for Joe Wingbermuehle's wildly successful Ion shell. 83 and 83 Plus versions have been created.

Redownload it. The Yoshi version at tcpa.calc.org was a bad version. It was fixed about an hour after release. Also make sure you are using Doors. If you still have problems after this, give me an email (dan@calc.org).

You know guys, out of all programing groups, TCPA seems to be the one that is most succesfull and the most talked about. They have released a good amount of games, but they are high quality games. Great gameplay and good graphics. I'd keep my eye on TCPA if I were you...

I think I speak for all of my fellow TCPA members when I say:

Thank you! =)

(on a side note: it seems to me like you talk about Icarus as a bad group?)
