Two other simple TI-eZ80 games
Posted by Xavier on 31 October 2016, 22:13 GMT
Our feature series continues with two games for the TI-eZ80 series, written in C by Spencer "Spenceboy98" Beaumont, who has been part of the community for several years: Catylizm CE and Zombie Chase CE. Both games use the community SDK and on-calc libraries by Matt "MateoConLechuga" Waltz and contributors; Spencer ported these games from other calculator platforms, e.g. the TI-Nspire. Catylizm CE leverages compressed data to reduce the size of the program.
The first game, with fancy yet fast graphics, is featuring Carl the cat, who was sent in space and has to collect coins and mice to raise scores, as well as fuel for the jetpack to propel up, while avoiding hurtful collisions with asteroids.
On the contrary, the second game has minimalist graphics. Unfortunately for you, you're trapped in a place you can't exit from, and have to escape green dots (the zombies, if you will) eager to bite you. Of course, the zombies are slower than you, but their number is increasing over time. Try to rise up to the challenge of staying human as long as possible ;-)
Keep going on with new games, and maybe improvements to existing ones (like configurable difficulty?), Spencer!
