Christopher Tremblay Releases LemmingZ for the 86
Posted by Nick on 20 June 2000, 21:13 GMT

LemmingZAs a young, impressionable child, there was no better way to enhance my youthful creativity and stimulate my infantile mind than to blow up tiny little green and blue men on a computer screen.
As we can see, I turned out just fine from such activities. :)

Back to desensitize all of us to violence and mass murder is Christopher Tremblay with LemmingZ. Written for the 86, Chris has done a fantastic job of replicating the enviroments and the original puzzles of the old-school Lemmings. It also includes a level compiler, for those happy external level writers out there. It also has one chapter for beginners. Good job, Chris! You've made at least one person proud here on the staff :)

This game kicks ass! Great job. I'm sure the collision detection was a hard thing to code. I'm impressed.

You must wonder how mad the authors must get when they get these kind of requests...

Imagine making Windows 2000, and having millions of people suddenly telling you to "Port it to the Mac!" :-P

TI-81,TI-83,TI-83 Plus,TI-86,TI-89,TI-92 Plus, TI-30xa Solar, and of course my TI-5018.

I've heard people saying it was possible to make your 83+ act like an 86. Is that true, or just some kind of joke?

Yah, it's the same Fil.

Yeah, <lol>
The collision system is pretty complex. There's a good reason why the game takes so much space besides the heavy graphics. I'll probably release the source in the next release so everyone will be able to see how everything's been done. It's still not perfect, but it should be good enough =)

Killing little blue men is what I live for! I'm partial to the sacrificial lemmings myself ;)

ah yes, I love lemmings. I'm going to play right now. I hope someone makes this for the 89, then I might start playing calc games again...

I helped do some graphics and levlels, I did some of his bugtesting too. I found a big bad bug if you have ROM 1.2- it crashes badly if you try to get a second level on!

I guess too. There isn't such a game like this one for TI89. What's TI86 screen resolution? the game looks great!

The TI-89's is 160x100, if I remember both correctly.

I was thinking of changing the keys for the game. (It's not official they're going to be changed) but if they do, I'd like to have some input as to which keys would do best to improve playability.

I would think that 1-9 or giving each a letter (w/o alpha of course) would be the only other *logical* choices. Anyway you do it though, itz gonna' be hard to remember where everything is...i think where you have it is fine now. But, whatever, it isn't my game, and not for my main calc platform. :-P my 2 and 1/2 cents, 'cause i'm generous.

heh,
I think almost any key arrangement is gonna be hard simply b/c there arent but 5 keys in a row max. maybe use F1-F5 for the first five options...then do a multiple key scan and have the last of the options be enabled by pressing second and F1...F2...F3...GET IT? It might make the game a bit bigger but hey it think it would work. Can't wait to see the source and what genius it beholds.

Cullen Logan
