Super Crate Box!
Posted by Ryan on 13 March 2013, 01:02 GMT

So, you've spent hours upon hours bending your brain by thinking deeplyabout physics, and now you're ready for a change of pace. You want something that will challenge you, and yet, you're looking for that arcade-style zeal that PC indie games oh-so-often deliver these days. But "What", you ask, "can possibly scratch this existential itch?

Worry not, calc fan; Mattias "matrefeytonias" Refeyton is springing forth, ready to soothe your unoccupied "2nd Key" finger. Today saw the release of his TI-83/84+ Flash version of Super Crate Box, a trigger-happy, easier-said-than-done game where your "simple" goal is to blast baddies while collecting crates. The trick is this: you can only score points by collecting crates, yet each time you do, your weapon changes. Featuring the majority of the weapons in the original, excellent speed, and a gorgeous title screen by Louis Persalteas Becquey, this game is well worth the download.

Matrefeytonias has done a superb job of bringing the original PC / OSX experience to your calc. Thanks, Mattias, and we look forward to future updates!

Update: Amazing indie developer Vlambeer had this to say about the matter.

Congratulations with this feature Mattias!
I really looks promising. Remind me when I'm running a z80 calc, and I'll probably try it(unless I reminded myself :P)
