Paper Plane Released
Posted by Michael on 24 May 2004, 22:58 GMT

[Paper Plane] Several people have e-mailed me with news of a falldown-type game called Paper Plane. Instead of the traditional ball with a fixed vertical speed, you control the direction of a falling paper plane. Each direction has a different, realistic speed. The two modes allow you to play on a constant level or a randomly generated one. Paper Plane is available for the 82, 83, and 83 Plus. Please do not attempt to duplicate this from the top of an office building.

This looks like my favorite game from the 80's!

I tried and played this game yesterday. It took a while to get used to, but it's really pretty fun, and--

What a great idea!

This sorta reminds me of falldown, except that you can't touch the platforms. Nice job. :)

this game is completely stolen from a GBA game called wario ware inc.
I love how there is no readme saying that the game came from there, while its great to have this game on the ti83, i hope you get sued.

This is an exceptional game! I'm very sorry to hear that the project starter Drues[sp] died... but it's a great thing that you picked up the project. Excellent work.

A game like this would be great with external levels that one could create. Who agrees with me?

Now talk about a coincidence: I started programming paper plane for the Ti89 a week ago! (got the idea from WarioWare(inc) for the GBA.)

I hate it when that happens! For example I made a grayscale prgm in basic, then somebody (not pointing any fingers ;p )uploaded a grayscale basic prgm. Oh well.

Wow! I posted on this site before everyone else that someone should port it to the 89, but my post got deleted. (Probably something having to do with me saying "Yay! First post!") That sounds really fun. If you finish it, I'll download it :)

Whoa. How DID that get there?? It's not even close to anything (Well, except the backspace, but you wouldn't be typing shift+backspace. Unless you use the numpad's enter. Which...Okay, I better stop now.)
