"Catch 22" is a fun strategy game for two players. There is no AI, so it does get repetitive. It is a war-based game that features buying many diffent kinds of buildings, and even multiple units for attack.

There is a bug when run from "CrunchyOS," though. You have to delete the app var it makes, or it will just exit and return to CrunchyOS. I'm not sure if that will happen with any other shell. Another problem is that the maps can get cluttered, and it is sometimes hard to tell where the cursor is.

Graphics: 8/10 can get cluttered
Gameplay: 8/10 not the most fun game for a calc, but decent.
Replay Value: 9/10 since the gameplay is relatively short, have fun with your friends over and over
Bugs: 9.9/10 only one very small bug mentioned above
Overall: 8.9/10

“Catch 22” is a turn-based war game that actually looks decent and plays that way for the TI-83+. While I wouldn't be quick to rush out and give it a 10/10, I will say that this is definitely a step in the right direction. Currently, you need a second player to play the game, unless you are so bored out of your mind that you would want to play against yourself. So, if in a future update AI is added, this game will be pretty good. For now I give it a 3 out of 5.

Note! This review was written for a previous version of this file!

“Catch 22 Demo” is, as the author says, a turned-based strategy game for the TI-83+. The graphics are a little confusing at first but once you get used to them, the graphics are one of the game's best features.

Game keeps you in suspense and trying to guess what your opponent's next move is. Starting the game off is a bit slow, but after that, game escalates rapidly.

All units are animated, as well as the buildings

AI would make this game an 11/10 but for now this will do.

I have one minute complaint though. When you attack an opponent's unit, there is no indication that it has been attacked. This confused me when I first played the game.

Do you want to write another review for this file?
