TND: The Next Dimension Released For 89
Posted by Nick on 6 November 1999, 19:17 GMT

TNDMatt Teiken has released a wonderful side-scrolling game for the 89 called TND (The Next Dimension). You have to defeat enemies with a gun and pick up oxygen tanks along the way so your oxygen doesn't run out. It's quite challenging, and definitely worth a look.

It is really all that better than SMQ? Also I'd like to see 'metroid 8x'

There's an idea. While I never owned any of the Metroid games, I still like the theme. (Good ol' Mother Brain.) I'll just be getting TND 89, then...

I like it! It's very playable, and challenging to boot. (Reminiscent of Penguins.) I can't wait for the level editor! Good job!

It's not bad, but is this really the same game that Matt was planning on SELLING? It's certainly not at that worth-paying-for level of quality. . .

You're kidding.
Please tell me you're kidding.

I think this is a great game, but certainly not of the caliber that I would pay money for.
SMQ, for example, I would certainly pay money for - provided I actually play games on my calculator anymore :)

He announced that he would charge for his next game on the Dim-TI community news page (or something like that; it's open to any news from anyone). And from the TND beta's readme file:

"The game is NOT going to be shareware. I thought about some of the e-mails I recieved about the Shareware idea and decided not to go that direction."

Ummm...shareware or freeware? This game is certainly not shareware. :)

hmm... it's cool, but I can't get the "ABCD" level string file to transfer to my calc with graph link. I can only play the levels from the old version. Is the level it comes with the same one that is showed in the movie of the game?

yes, the level is the same as the movie.

I haven't sent the game to my calculator, but it works on my emulator. I can't understand why you have problems with it.

I try to run this program and it asks for a folder. I tried every folder and no level is found. What do I do?

make sure you transfer the "abcd" string file to your calc. this is the level file. however, my computer views this file as a text file and won't transfer it to my calc via graph-link. if you have the same problem, you can find the level files from an older version. the game sux bad with those levels though.

You probably lack a library necessary to run the program.
You should install DoorsOS or PlusShell before trying to run this.
