Pyoro Makes an 83+/84+ Appearance
Posted by Travis on 5 January 2010, 23:11 GMT

Pyoro screenshot Here's another fast-paced TI-83+/84+ action game from Kevin Horowitz: Based on a minigame from Nintendo's WarioWare, Inc., Pyoro demands fast reflexes as well as accuracy as you shoot at the falling fruit. Better not miss or you'll find yourself more and more constrained as the fruit begins destroying the floor on impact! It will destroy you, too, if you happen to be in the way. The game is intended to run using Ion, Mirage OS, or the native ASM support, and Kevin is interested in any feedback.

Update (January 26): Pyoro has been updated. It is now a Flash application.

Foist.

I noticed this in the new file section and tried it out a few days ago. It works perfectly and is a lot of fun to play, but it crashes constantly.

I have an 84+ SE, OS 2.40 running MirageOs. When running the Mirage file the game will randomly lock up and clear the RAM.

I have tried this on DoorCS, ChrunyOS, and MirageOS with no success. I haven't tried the Ion or nostub versions yet to see if they work. As far as the timing of the crash it is completely random, but always seems to occur within at least a minute. I have been unable to replicate it under any conditions. It's probably a bug in one of the core routines, seeing as it will crash even when I don't move or shoot anything, as well as when I do.

Great game though.

It turned out that it was an issue with the interrupt vector table - he has fixed it and the next release should be more stable.

That's what it looks like he's saying. Seems like a contradiction, but maybe it's just quantum mechanics kicking in to high gear.

Hi everyone!

I'm really sorry about the crashes. I only own an 84+ (not SE) and a debugger of the same calculator. I assumed since it worked on that, it would work on every calculator! Boy, was I wrong :(

So anyway, I've fixed the problem now and made a few other interesting improvements (Music added from the original game!). I've re-submitted it and I'm just waiting for it to be approved.

I still have the first version on my calc. TI84+/ latest OS / DoorsCS 6 and it works fine for me. Not one single crash.

Looks like the problem was SE only.
Anyways, can't wait to download the new release.

Looks similar to an older form of game I encountered in various forms.
Though those games have like a movable bar at the bottom instead of a frog, like stationary blocks above instead of fruit that drops, and a ball that bounces off of the bar and blocks.

It also seems somewhat similar to scrolling shooters.

sweet!
i mean this game is sweet!!!

i downloaded it the first day it came out...
played it and loved it!

its got to be one of the best greyscale games on the TI84

he also makes many other great games too... puyo puyo is nice... though the highscore system should be fixed on all of them... since you have to either unarchive it manually or archive it after playing...

Congrats Kevin. Indeed he does have a new version out. You can check it out at RevSoft check my url or I'm sure he'll have it released on ticalc soon enough. He also has a version with sound at RevSoft if you wanted to give that a try. Both are in the announce your project section of the forum. Again this is a great addition to the small grayscale games already out there! Keep it up I cant wait to see what you come up with next.

Nice to see some new programmers in the scene too.

Nice game!
Sadly, it uses routines that arn't supported by the N-Spire emu... Would it be possible to release a N-Spire compatible version? That would be great!

The next version will be more compatible, I'm ditching the interrupts for more speed and smaller size.

Keep in mind that in long term (or hopefully short), such version may no longer be necessary since it is going to be possible to program in ASM on the TI-Nspire soon. I wouldn't be surprised if someone rewrote an entire TI-84+ emulator from scratch for the Nspire with better compatibility than the built-in one, considering there are alerady TI-89 and Gameboy Color ones in the work.

Yes, but I'll have to wait for that. And I'm a rather impatient person :P

I think MulTI only supports ION programs - and no apps.
