Title Exodus
Description Exodus is an extremely fun yet difficult puzzler/platformer for the TI-83/84 series calculators. There are 24 levels that should provide endless amounts of fun. Upon first glance Exodus looks like most other games released for the calculator, with monochrome graphics and loading times, but it includes many features rarely seen in Basic games: Enemies that you must avoid and shoot to advance to the next level, Gems you must collect, A flag you need get to in order to finish each level. If that's not enough, there are also switches that control a tile that toggles it between solid and clear whenever you shoot the switch. There are crumbling blocks that disappear after you've stepped on them more than once and spikes that you cannot land on. There is also a world map even customizable options. Also, the entire game is in only one program so it is easier to keep track of. Exodus is one of the best games ever coded in the TI-Basic language and a must try.

When I saw this up for POTY 2011, I was amazed by it. However, as any POTY 2011 voter will know, there is some really tough competition and after days of deliberation, I narrowed it down to 3 choices. So here is why I give this a 10/10 and my vote for Program of the Year 2011:

This is an action game in TI-BASIC and I take this into account:

Speed: 10/10

This is a BASIC program with a speed and pace that is perfect. It handles multiple moving enemies and changing tiles.

Loading times are also quite acceptable and not at all boring.

Playability: 10/10

This is a game that anybody can play and enjoy

Replayability: ?/?

I haven't finished it yet :P

Efficiency: 10/10

This program is only 12103 bytes which is amazing for a game like this (I expected somewhere in the realm of two or three times that). With the speed this has, too, it is clear that the programmer was amazingly efficient in how the code was designed.

I don't know what else to say about this except that I am enjoying this game. It even includes a map editor to create custom maps!
