Monster v0.99 for all 68k Calcs
Posted by Michael on 10 May 2004, 03:32 GMT

[Monster] Our best-selling...err best-downloaded author of all time, Patrick Davidson, has released v0.99 of his breakout-type game, Monster. Playable on the 89, 92+, and V200, Monster features breakout action in grayscale and with seven different types of power-ups. As listed in the program description, there are also external levels, a high score table, and multiple speeds. Adding to the challenge, the screen scrolls horizontally along with the ball.

Mine too. I LOVE this game. :) What's different in this version? I noticed it in the file archives a few days ago and checked the description, but it was the same. I'm assuming the only change is compatibility with the TI-89 Ti, right? *checks History log* Oh, okay, there's more. Cool.

Well, if you have a TI-89 and HAVEN'T tried this game yet, you really need to. It's addicting.

Monster is, IMHO, the best breakout game there is. If you don't have it, download it. Now. Even if you don't have a 68k calculator.

What's the point if you don't have a 68K calculator?

I have one, but what's the point? You can give him better stats, but if you can't use it...

well, for instance i have roms for every calculator, but i own only two. So i have on occasion downloaded interesting looking programs for calcs i dont own to look at them. It was rather easy to obtain the 68k roms, but the rest took a lot of work for me...ill stop talking now...*whistles innocently*...

I got all the ROMs from one site. (and of course, I deleted them after 24 hours!)

yeah, i found a site somewhere that just had tons of them for every version of every calc, but at that point i had already found the 68k ones on another. Unlike you, ive actually created an underground ti rom black market on irc distributing roms for money, and purple monkey dishwasher...

Hey, you don't have one either. Or you wouldn't be making so many bad 83+ BASIC programs.

No offense, of course. I don't hate your programs nearly as much as some people.

(Let's not start another anti-KermMartian argument...)

actually he does, and i think making bad (i have no opinion on this, just repeating general trends) 83+ basic programs is better than 68k, because people would be more likely to download them, because the average 83+ user (relative to a 68k user) is a gullible kid who doesnt know Catalog from ln(
