Invaded v1.0 Released
Posted by Eric on 2 June 2001, 19:41 GMT

Invaded v1.0 Everybody's favorite Aussie James Vernon has released Invaded v1.0 for the TI-83 (Ion), TI-83+ (MirageOS), and TI-83+ (Ion). It's a horizontally-scrolling shoot-'em-up game, as you can see from the screenshot.

The rest is pretty self-explanatory. A levelset creator is also included for the particularly avid. Have fun!

Is this the first a horizontally-scrolling shoot-'em-up game for the 83+ ???

Wow, we finally have a featured game for Ti-83. It seemed like the only calculators that exist are Ti-86 and Ti-89.

this game should be ported to the 89 (and just to piss you off the ti-86)

I downloaded this game yesterday (when it was released) and this is one of the BEST current games out for TI-83+! It has an easy-to-use button system, and is difficult enough to last a long time!! I thought it was definately worth the download.

Heh, I love it when people say "worth the download" on this site. Yes, the massive files may actually be in excess of 5k :) Well, whatever. Sorry if you've got like a 14.4. modem or something.

i don't think he was refering to the file size, instead he was talking about the hassle of putting a game on yer calc (i know, i know, i'm just a lazy hoe).
well, hmnm, if not, then, i'm wrong

I use both 14.4 and dsl with these small files it doesn't even make a huge difference. Some ticalc downloads take less time than loading certin web pages.

Damn, I feel that this is probably the best game ever. I mean with a level editor, this game will never get old!
Also, I've been hoping to have a game like this since the 7th 3 years ago when i got my first TI!

Very nice...this gives pheonix a run for it's money...now all you need is a 82/86/89/92/92+ version and a triple digit version number, and you may be able to compete!!

I think that Phoenix still out-does Invaded by far. Yeah, it's fun, but Phoenix is just classic.

I personally think that Invaded is better than phoenix. Phoenix is still a great game, and obviously took a lot of programming, especially with the ships that do the figure-eight motion around the screen, but Invaded has so much more variety. The bosses aren't all the same, it has customizable terrain, and of course there's the orb. This game will be one of the classics someday.

I agree that this game will achieve classic status some day. But as of right now, Phoenix is a better game. You're right it does have the same boss, but animation and powerups make the game so much better. I own a 83+ and an 86, but no I don't want it ported anywhere (aren't you sick of comments like that?). This game rocks tho! Nice job on the programming! Keep up the good work.

I'd just like to say that TICalc.org is one of the most aesthetically pleasing web sites I've ever seen. It's visually attractive, content-loaded, and extremely useful. Three cheers!

NBow if there was a general purpose forum rather tahn topic-driven thread lists, it would be the very best. YaBB is free and doesn't take up much more space (CGI anyway) than 100,000 prime factors BASIC programs.

Yabb???????? I tried it (yabb.com) and it took me to this REALLY weird site!

I agree, after I got my TI-82, I found this site, and I'm on it all of the time i'm on the net!

I don't own an 83, but I played this on an emulator and I must say that I'm impressed. I never thought anyone would be able to accurately port the game boy R-Type game to ANY calc... much applause to James Vernon.

Wait a sec, if you don't have a TI-83, how could you play that game on an emulator? Is that legal?
