Asteroids in Your 89
Posted by Michael on 15 December 2003, 23:26 GMT

[Asteroids]David Coz has updated his smashing game, Asteroids. This grayscale arcade classic features 22 levels, three difficulty levels, and a shop for purchasing ship upgrades. Please don't hack into any hamburger computers afterwards.

If anyone hasn't noticed yet, the poll for the PC program of the year has been posted.

In addition to my other question (which is currently the last post on the last page) What does the "aircraft" option on the main menu do? This game is either buggy or it has some "extra features"

There, I beat you ;-) The world doesn't have to end, now.

I am mad- they canceled school today. I wanted to go to school. :'( *sigh*

Wow, the game has 11 screenshots.

Haha, well, I guess it cancels itself out, then. :) Though, it is kind of weird that it has 11 screenshots. I remember a discussion on large amounts of screenshots before, and so I guess every time he updated the game, he added more.

Yes, and Morgan Davies wanted to know of all of the pages with this on it, so he could reduce the screenshots down to four per program.
Nice memory :)

Technically I don't really care how many non-animated screenshots a file has. I do limit the number of animated screenshots to 1. That is why anyone that has ever tried to upload more than 1 only has 1 put up.

On a side note:

"IF YOU ARE UPDATING A FILE THAT ALREADY HAS SCREENSHOTS YOU DO NOT NEED TO SEND IN THE SCREENSHOTS AGAIN!"

Well, I just did. (Sorry)
But the old ones do not represent the game accuratly, and the new ones help promote it much better.

I have now :) Wow! There have been a lot of TI-89 games coming out lately. That's always good news. There's always a new game to try out.

BTW, what was the hamburger comment about? LOL

the hamburger comment is about a little book type thing called asteroids... at the end you go into a hamburger

(BTW, this is just a guess!)

I've seen that movie a couple times, but I don't remember anyone mentioning hacking any hamburger computers.

Maybe I'm really bad at attempts at humor, but what is the name of the computer that David hacks - the same David who in the beginning is playing an arcade game of Asteroids?

Not no, but hell no. It was made in the 80's.

Looks like a nice game! First i wondered how he achieved 22-level grayscale, but then i realized it are 22 levels, each in 4-level grayscale :p
