Description F-ZERO is a futurist race game originally developed by NINTENDO ® You can play with 4 different ships and you must try to be the fastest to win the gold cup at the grand prix. You can upgrade your skills by practicing in Time Attack mode, and try to beat your own records. You can record ghost files and send them to your friends so they can virtually fight against you in Time Attack.

When I use my TI-89 nowadays, it's usually to play F-Zero 68k. It is in fact one of my favourite 68k game (close to Super Mario 68k). When it first came out, I was amazed. I never thought Mode-7 would even be possible on calc before, even less with grayscale. Then it happened. F-Zero on a calculator.

There are only two things I didn't like very much about the game, however:

  1. First, I think the cars were way too big for the size of the road. I think that they should have been made smaller, something like 24x16 or if it's still a bit too big, 16x12. The car would look less detailled, but it would still look good I'm sure and you would be able to see more of the road ahead (and other cars).
  2. Secondly, F-Zero is a fast racing game. F-Zero 68k is fast too, but maybe a bit too much. When playing it, the speed felt like I was playing F-Zero X or GX using an speed modifier action-replay code. Fortunately, controls were pretty great, so controlling the car was still somewhat easy, but judging by other F-Zero games, I feel this one could have been made so the cars moves at least twice slower. It would also make the tracks no longer seems incredibly short (I could finish some of them in 20 seconds)

Despite these two points, I think F-Zero 68k is a revolutionary game for TI calculators that deserves its feature and everyone who wants a good racing game should download it. It's pretty much like F-Zero for the SNES or GBA, just with twice faster speed and twice as big cars.

9.5/10
