Axio Man! for the 83/84+
Posted by Ryan on 18 November 2014, 02:17 GMT

Before continuing with Nomination November, we would like to take this brief moment to thank everyone who has been sending suggestions for features and POTY candidates. You're the best! Yes, you!

Today, we saw the release of Jared Reeves' latest game for the 83/84+, Axio Man!. You might remember Jared's previous feature, Swords 2, a captivating and well-designed platformer/puzzler. Axio Man! follows in Jared's tradition of creating high-quality and well thought-out death traps for you to solve and eventually master. The graphical design is simple but clean, the level transitions are smooth and refreshing, and it provides just about the best noise that this news editor has seen. But what's design without playability? Nothing. Thankfully, Jared brought his "A" game here as well. The controls and physics are nicely done, and the use of interactive objects in the game world keeps the puzzles solid and intriguing. Essentially, Axiom Man! has everything that it should; fans of the genre shant be disappointed.

Terrific job, Jared!

We always love to see when a calc programmer's ingenuity and hard work receives a broader audience. We'd like to take a quick moment to give a big congratulations to Hayleia, who has been working on a project that is getting a lot of attention. Way to grab the headlines, Hayleia!

nKaruga for the TI-Nspire!
Posted by Ryan on 14 November 2014, 16:46 GMT

nKarugaYou might remember a certain shoot 'em up that came out last year during Nomination November that won more than a few hearts. Of course, I'm referring to IkarugaX for the 83/84+ calcs. The original Ikaruga is an absolutely genius cult classic that has a way of quietly resurfacing every few years on a new platform, and fans just can't get enough.

Imagine our joy, then, when IkarugaX author Mattias Refeyton released a beta version of nKaruga for the TI-Nspire series! While this is "only" a beta and currently features only the first level, it shows some serious promise. Not only does it look great (which it does), it highlights the fact that everything one would want from this game can be done, and done well. The polarity-switching mechanic is faithful to the original, the game is responsive (a must-have for a shooter of this type), and it even features a boss battle! Building chains and power cells? That's there too!

Despite being in a relatively early stage of development, there's a lot of good stuff going on here. We absolutely hope to see Mattias continue with further development on this game. Check out the instructions (or the GitHub page) for more detailed info on compatibility / gameplay info. Once again, awesome job to Mattias, and thanks to everyone who suggested this title for Nomination November!

Reuben Quest: The Lost Mirror
Posted by Ryan on 14 November 2014, 16:28 GMT

Reuben Quest: The Lost Mirror Earlier this year, we were absolutely thrilled to see Sorunome release a fantastic remake of Reuben Quest: Ev Awakening for our z80 calcs. It looked great, played great, and had all of the markings of an expertly-developed piece. If you've played it, beat it, and couldn't stop hungering for more, fear not! The much-awaited sequel is here!

Sorunome has lovingly recaptured the charm and magic of the original RQ: The Lost Mirror in yet another stunning remake of a calculator classic. While his previous remake was done in the game-changing Axe Parser, this new work appears to have been lovingly crafted in assembly. There's honestly not too much that I can say that shouldn't be obvious already. If you loved the first Reuben Quest game, you'll love this fantastic sequel as well. Seriously, everything about it is just a blast, and it shines in every aspect that a calc game in this genre should. Play it!

Thanks to Sorunome, and all of the fine folks who recommended this title for Nomination November! We've been getting a lot of great requests, and we're doing our best to review the submissions and keep the ball rolling!
