Hands down one of the best calculator games ever. End of story.
Just about as good/accurate as 2d graphics can get on a TI. The sprites, backgrounds, enemies etc. all hold true to the SNES version and it really looks beautiful. Not only this, but I never saw a significant drop in the framerate in my entire playthrough.
I'm hesitant to even take a point off because this game is so good. The reason I did is because the physics in the game are pretty much nonexistent which really detracts from the experience. Other than that, though, the gameplay is very good.
The menus are easy to use and saving is a breeze with (I believe) auto-archiving save files. Not only this, but it's really easy to keep track of the files for the game as they automatically make a separate folder for themselves.
Lasting Appeal: 10/10
Probably one of the most lengthy TI games ever. I think there's something like 70 levels with a billion different enemies and tons of features. On top of this there is a level editor so even after you beat the game you can keep on playing.
Not only is the most fun TI game I've ever played, it's also the most impressively built. Everything in this game runs perfectly and holds true to the SNES version (except for the physics system). Props to the guys at TI freakware who made this; this is a truly amazing game.
