Reviews of various TI-8x calculator software.
Read the uploading walkthrough,
the TI-83 and/or
the TI-86 page to learn how to run these.
* (utils, gfx, shells, math, science, demos, and anything else not being a game)
Details (also FAQ; read before asking stupid questions!)
The same layout is used in all reviews. For each program, I've made a
screenshot of the game (not things like title-screens, but the "real" thing
that you'll be getting yourself into.) Then there's the standard details:
game-title, version number, release date, shell required, author (w/ email),
program size (as in MEM/DELETE screen; If levels are required to run the
game, a level size is given too, gerenally the smallest level included with
the game.) Press download to download the program (duh).
A new feature of my site is the commenting/voting-system. By clicking on
Comments you can vote for a specific game (please do!) and leave your
comments (ie. personal experience.) Just post comments about the game,
no off-topic stories, or questions like how to download or unzip it!!
Then a description/evaluation with my personal opinion and things missing.
The following icons indicate whether hiscore is saved
the game is pausable (or turn-based)
or it's multiplayer .
|| = Didn't work at all
|| = Worth looking
|| = Off the scale
|| = Nice
|| = Embarrassing...
|| = Good, useful/fun!
|| = Worthless
|| = Really cool
|| = Waste of time
|| = Never go without it
|| = Needs improvement
|| = Near-perfect (amazing!)
|| = Below average
|| = P E R F E C T
Programs are graded (at least) on durability, graphics, size
and entertainment (or usefulness).
In my TI-82/83/85 reviews I've indicated the required shell to play
the game. I used the following:
- Ash v3.0
- CrASH v1.6
- asm: for TI-83 means the program can be run directly using
the Send(9prgm-command (uncompiled assembly). For TI-86 this
is left out, since all 86 progs are asm.)
- Zasm (zasmload should be included with the program.)
- AShell v1.0
- SOS v2.0
- Ion v1.6
- Ion86 v0.1 beta
- ZShell v4.0
- Usgard v1.5
- YAS v0.94
