Fruit Ninja
Posted by Ryan on 8 September 2012, 20:44 GMT

Fruit NinjaApparently, Deep Thought thinks that just because you don't have a supported touch-screen device, you shouldn't be deprived of living out your Gallagherian-esque fantasies. That's right, Deep Thought has brought Fruit Ninja to the 83/84+ calcs!

As you can see from watching the game in action, the animation is absolutely lovely. What you cannot see, however, is the innovative use of the keypad for input, faithfully capturing the experience of unleashing your awesome, melon-slashing prowess upon fruit in the real world. Deep Thought's version of the game is a nice remake of the classic mode from the original and is definitely worth checking out.

Great game. I have a TI89, is there a possible game like that on it?

Most likely it's possible, but sadly enough there aren't too many active 68k programmers out there. Maybe I should try it myself once. ;)

Must admit I haven't tried it yet.(I hardly put z80 programs on my calc, since I'm more of a programmer)
Anyway, the first time I heard of this I though it was a joke, but not so! Based on the screenshots and video I must say very well done to Deep Thought! Congratulations on this feature as well ofcourse. :)

My original plan was to reveal the project on April 1st. Would have made for a heck of an April Fools' joke :D

And thanks!

A TI-89 Titanium Version would be very nice :)

I've just downloaded it and I played a few games. It is a little hard to get used to the controls, but I like the idea of swiping across the keypad. Also, more could be added to the title screen, such as options, although I understand this is in early development stages. Great idea, and I'd like to see it develop further!

Hi, I have a problem with downloading this. I downloaded it in the zip file (was i supposed to extract it?), click and dragged it onto ti connect, and prgmFRUIT is on my calculator, but when I execute it, it says ERR ARCHIVED, and when I unarchive it, it says err syntax. I'm new to this kind of stuff and am bad at computers, so any help would be much appreciated.

You need a shell. I recommend my own Doors CS, since it can run ASM programs like this from the homescreen without needing to type the Asm() token. There are other options as well, like the older MirageOS or Ion.
