Looking for a good FPS in Ti-Basic?

Here you have one: the graphics are sweet, the gameplay too and it runs pretty good for being basic.

It has 2 modes: One where you have to go trough a big maze and kill everybody, and a deathmatch mode (situated in some smaller arena's and you can make an arena yourself too!) where the only goal is to kill the bot more than it kills you.

+ animations, nice graphics, compass, 2 modes, addicting, available for ti83

- it doesn't run really fast, but that's just the way it is in basic

I haven't played a basic game that is this good for a long while. Overall rating: 9/10

While I was screenshotting, I came to this program called “Quake IV” and written in BASIC for the TI-83. The whole fact that it was written in BASIC made me presume that this was just going to be one of those other screenshots to do, but I was wrong. This is the very first BASIC shoot-em-up type game with decent graphics! The setup is a lot like any “Quake” for the computer, but once you start playing, you have a great 3D GUI to explore. The opponents aren't that difficult to beat but they might be for some. The only downside to this game was that the animation of the opponent dying flickered a bit and that the gameplay speed was on the verge of unsatisfactory.

There are plenty of good 3D “Wolfenstein-like” games out there in ASM, but barely good ones in 83 BASIC. Well done, Nicolas.
