Power-Up with Super Mario 68K
Posted by Michael on 22 June 2007, 22:18 GMT

[Super Mario 68K]The kind of wonderful calculator game that comes along only once every few years has just been released: Super Mario 68K by Lach Asderity.

As the name implies, it is an intricately written Super Mario game for the 89, 92+, and Voyage 200 calculators. With too many features to completely list here, some of the highlights are grayscale, a million and a half types of monsters, three bosses, a plentiful plethora of powerups, hidden areas, the ability to save your game, and most importantly, 70 levels so boredom becomes a thing of the past.

A level editor is also planned in the future. For those of you without a 68k calculator, you can gaze wistfully at the large number of screenshots available at the Super Mario 68K homepage.

WOW! I'm new to the 89, if it's anything like the 83 version, it's great!

Question: what do I need to run this on an 89 titanium?

I used to have SuperStart but it crashed randomly and I'd have to reinstall the OS to fix it...inconvienient during an exam...

You need the HW3Patch (I think). Make sure you actually install it.

The HW3Patch shouldn't be needed, it should just work.

by "it" do you mean SuperStart or Mario?

I know SuperStart doesn't work right...gave up on that and my hope of games along with it. Think this one will work anyway?

Just use the launcher Super Mario 68k comes with.

Super Start is what I used for Super Mario 68k, along with all other games I've played on the 89, and it's always been fine...

Maybe it's a bug with the titanium or the new OS...

Oh, well, I can't try it until I get back for college so no point in wondering about it...

how come the 68k games have so much better graphics than the 83 + games

This looks like a very, very, very nice game. I'm going to dig out my old HW1 89 and try this (assuming it works on that one, it's been so long since I even used it).

It seems as slick as the real SMB3. Given that the calculator does not have a dedicated graphics processor (whereas the NES did), the minor rendering shortcomings (mostly the lack of color) are excusable.

It's-a-here! Mario!

I've been looking at this project for a while and I was really skeptical a game of this caliber would make it to the starting gates. But this looks like one of those releases that really raises the bar!

This-is-a great-a! Mario has made it to the TI-89, and we've had 3 important news articles in the past 3 days! Now we just have to see Mario in his (in my opinion) best adventure EVER:

Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars!

Hooray!
