Cuberunner Cube-tacular
Posted by Travis on 8 October 2010, 15:08 GMT

Screenshot of Cuberunner

Showcasing more of Axe's potential, squidgetx has brought the popular arcade game known as Cuberunner (or Cubefield) to the TI-83 Plus/84 Plus series. Like the original, this clone features three-dimensional rotation and scaling effects as you attempt to fly your way through the jungle of cubes without crashing. It also features high score saving and a quick-exit key.

Yay ticalc.org is fixed! :D

And nice game, I play it almost everyday (which is rare normally considering I don't game much anymore)

I can't run this game but it looks great! When I saw the screenshots yesterday I knew it was gonna get featured! If I had a ti 83+ I would download this game instantly!

He doesn't have an 83+, so he can't run it.

I have a ti 83 but it isn't a plus. Sometimes I regret I bought it. Happily I have a ti 89.

Yes, I agree.
This is off topic but I don't know where else to post this on this site. Does anyone know how good the quality is on the new casio prizm calc?

Not sure, but I know it got 10 MB of user RAM, 216x384 display with 16 bit color depth (65536). The downside, though, is that it only has 61000 bytes of RAM, we do not know how well it is programmable yet and what is the processor speed and type.

I've looked at the pre-released manual and it seems to have a BASIC language simular to Ti's in many ways. It seems to take advantage of the color screen, but I doubt it is as powerful as pure assembly. So I won't buy it unless assembly seems to be possible.

One worry I have is if the BASIC language is the same as the CFX-9850G series, which also had a color screen, back in 1996: Only text(), pictures and a few other functions could use color. Assumign Casio won't optimize their BASIC language when porting it to that new calc, I also guess it will not be much faster than the TI-Nspire or even the 84+SE

This new Casio calculator seems aimed directly at being competition for the nspire in the high school market. Yes of course, without assembly programing it would not be a power house but keep in mind that the nspire is so difficult to program that a calculator that gos back to something similiar to the ti basic would be a very big improvement compared to the nspire device.
