Super Crate Box!

So, you've spent hours upon hours bending your brain by
thinking deeplyabout physics, and now you're ready for a change of pace. You want something that will
challenge you, and yet, you're looking for that arcade-style zeal that PC indie games oh-so-often deliver
these days. But "What", you ask, "can possibly scratch this existential itch?
Worry not, calc fan; Mattias "matrefeytonias" Refeyton is springing forth, ready to soothe your unoccupied "2nd Key"
finger. Today saw the release of his TI-83/84+ Flash version of Super Crate Box, a trigger-happy, easier-said-than-done game where your "simple" goal is to blast baddies while collecting crates. The
trick is this: you can only score points by collecting crates, yet each time you do, your weapon changes.
Featuring the majority of the weapons in the original, excellent speed, and a gorgeous title
screen by Louis Persalteas Becquey, this game is well worth the download.
Matrefeytonias has done a superb job of bringing the original PC / OSX experience to your calc. Thanks, Mattias, and we look forward to future updates!
Update: Amazing indie developer Vlambeer had this to say about the matter.
