I was looking through the list of games one day, bored as could be, and found this... and I'm glad I did. This game is one of the best games (if not the best) programmed for the 83/84 family of calculators. The graphics are the best I've ever seen, even better than programs made by official calculator companies! Very smooth gameplay as well. The enemies are a little rough in looks, but everything else compensates for it. The gameplay, however, does get a little bit rushed, seeing as how the only thing keeping you from getting to the next area is a single key within a large maze. It can get really frustrating, so players must have patience.

9.5/10 overall I'd say.

This game is a great-looking alternative to “Wolfenstein,” but little else. The file size is much reduced and all the levels are in the main program, rather than in level packs. The graphics are much better, with more realistic-looking enemies and a raycasting engine that seems to actually work. The gun system is pretty cool, with multiple guns that fire at different rates, have different power levels, and amounts of ammo.

However, the game itself is lacking. The idea of finding a locked door, then going through a massive maze to find the key and trying to find your way back is original enough, but the mazes are way to big and it becomes more irritating than fun. When you beat a level, you feel more relieved than happy, demonstrating the toughness of this game.

I definitely recommend this game, if only to see what the TI-83 can do. Beyond that, good luck.
