Jason Kovacs Releases Three Ion Programs
Posted by Nick on 15 January 2000, 19:54 GMT

Insane GameJason Kovacs of the TCPA has released three new ports of games to the Ion shell.

Insane Game v1.3: This game, as shown in the screenshot, is a puzzle game involving many complex strategies. You have to clear the screen of shapes, but you can only clear shapes when two or more are adjacent to each other. A simple game, this takes many hours to master. Download it for the 83 and the 83 Plus.
Periodic Table v2.0: This science program is a graphical periodic table. It displays the name of each element, the symbol, the atomic number, and the atomic mass. Chemistry nuts out there (such as myself) will find this an extremely useful tool. Download it for the 83 and the 83 Plus.
DStar v2.6: This game is DStar. That's all I can really say about it. If you know it, great; if you don't, it's an incredibly addictive puzzle game. You have to use a dark ball and a box to collect a bunch of white balls. When you move either the dark ball or the box, you can move in any of four directions but you have to move until an impediment stops it; either a white ball or a wall. Yeah, I know, it sounds weird. :-) Download it here for the 83 or the 83 Plus.

Thanks a ton to Jason and the TCPA for all the great programs they've put out yet again.

I feel that the main page article about this did not include all the appropriate information. I must note that these programs are simply Ports of programs that existed for Ashell/SOS on the 83, and they are now just compatible with ION for the 83/83+.

I'd like to thank Martin Hock and Bill Nagel for Insane Game, Joe Wingbermuehle for DStar, and Ahmed El-Helw for Periodic Table. I want everyone to know I respect their programming ability, and am glad they were willing to let me alter their code to make them run for ION. I hope all the 83 and 83+ users respect my services as well... :)

Yeah Jason. I respect your services 100%. I am glad that you ported two great games. Sure I have found an 83+ version of Ahmed's Periodic Table, but still, I don't remember where from. I am glad that you have ported it again and made it smaller than the one I found!

Thanks my friend!

Its not impossible, I have beaten all the levels myself. I had to make sure the ending of the game worked and didnt crash, and I got there fine. I assure you that it is beatable, just keep trying, and no I cant tell you how to solve it... :)

Insane Game sure looks a lot like "Clickomania!". Is it basically the same game, just for the 83? (If you've never played Clickomania!, just search for it. It's quite addictive, and it's FREE.)
