Jetpack 8x(+)
Posted by Ryan on 17 July 2012, 17:37 GMT

Recently, Mattias Refeyton has brought to us another port of a popular handheld title. In the growing tradition of one-button endurance games, Jetpack 8x(+) has a nice "top your previous best" feel to it. Jetpack 8x(+) has a copacetic physics component, meaning that you must not only maneuver carefully, but anticipate your position in conjunction with the incoming obstacles. The game is able to run on your TI-82 Stats and, with the help of Brian "thepenguin77" Coventry (author of other great hits), your regular ol' TI-83 in the event that you do not have the "+" models of calcs. Give it a go, and share your high scores!

This is cool to see - I was so addicted to that game on my iPhone a few months back!

You forgot to mention that it was runner up in TI-Concours. :P Nonetheless, congrats on the feature, and awesome program!

It doesn't happen immediately since I have to notice the news article and then mark it featured. Should be done now.

I tried it about a week ago, and it's really nice! I especially like the startup animation :)
