Title Phoenix 7.6 for TI-89 and TI-89 Titanium
Description Phoenix is an advanced shoot-em-up game for the TI-89, TI-92, and TI-92 Plus. This game has very smooth gameplay (31+ frames per second) with many objects onscreen. Its features include many different types of enemies, many different levels, the ability to buy additional items, eight possible weapons for your ship, game saving, a high score table, multiple difficulty levels, multiple ships the player can purchase, and multiple speeds. The game only takes about 16K of your memory. It is supplied with full source code. The program may be copied or modified without any restrictions.

Ah, the legendary Phoenix. Undoubtedly the best-known, most-downloaded, most-shared TI-89 game of all time. Responsible for incalculable amounts of wasted time in math classes all over the world. If you have a TI-89, you owe it to yourself to download it, if only to know about it.

From a gameplay perspective, Phoenix is a 2D shooter with a money-based weapon buying system (you gather the money from destroyed enemies). It makes great use of the TI-89 graphical capabilities, even if it does not make use of grayscale mode (which would probably be lost in the motion blur anyway); it has great gameplay with varied enemies, and always provides a challenge, even if you've beaten it in the past, so it's a great game to keep with you should you find yourself needing to kill half an hour, you'll never find it boring and it may be a little too addicitive…

★★★★★ (5/5)

(reviewed on a TI-89 HW1 AMS 1.00)
