Notable Game and Software Releases
We are continuing our series of news catchup articles. A few days ago, we covered TI-Nspire CX, TI-84 Plus CE and TI-83 Premium CE releases in two articles. Now we will cover Casio, HP, monochrome TI-Z80 calculators, a TI-Nspire CX release that we missed in the previous articles and even a NES game!


TI-83 Plus & TI-84 Plus

The Day the Walrus Flew v2

This is a major update to c4ooo's game, posted several months ago. Give it a try if you haven't already.

Download link and discussion


This is the Only Level

JWinslow23 has released This is the Only Level for the TI-84 Plus a while ago and it provides a lot of fun and looks very great.

Download link and discussion


KOS-Tunnel Game

While this is just a Tunnel clone, it is probably one of, if not the first KnightOS game that isn't a port of an existing TI-OS game. Could KnightOS game development be taking off? It's also a fun game.

Download link


Draw 'n' Map 2016

Released in 2006, Draw 'n' Map has recently been updated. It is unclear if it's Spellshaper or lolje who uploaded this new version to Ticalc, but it's nice to see that at least one of them is still around! This tool is a very in-depth sprite and map editor if you use xLIB or Doors CS 7 BASIC libraries for the TI-84 Plus.

Download link


TI-Nspire CX

PocketSNES (new versions)

This is a major update to gameblabla's port of the Super Nintendo emulator for the TI-Nspire CX. It now comes with minimal and full versions and versions with or without sound. With the minimal version, Super Mario world now runs almost at full speed and Mario Kart is now bearable.

Download link and discussion


Casio fx-9860G

Kirby's Dream Land

A very elaborate Kirby clone for the fx-9860G calculators. It is not finished but it's still very enjoyable to play!

Download link (and discussion)


Sokoban Ultimate

This is a simple, but well-done Sokoban game for the fx-9860G with 84 levels available.

Download link and discussion


HP Prime

Sirius Ranger

This is a sandbox game for the HP Prime inspired from Minecraft, and there are enemies that can shoot at you. The terrains are side-scrolling, but generated in a very advanced fashion, as it supports curved and very detailed lands.

Download link (and discussion)


Nintendo Entertainment System

Happily Ever After

So now here is a game that is not for calculators, but rather for the NES. Happily Ever After was supposed to be a movie-based game slated to be released in 1994, but it finally disappeared off the radar and never came out... until last year, when a copy was found. From what we can see, it definitively looks much more fun than many unreleased games like Cheetahmen 2 or NBA Elite 2011.

Notable Game and Software Releases
Continuing our news pending queue cleanup, it's now time to mention some notable TI-84 Plus CE and TI-83 Premium CE releases. As you'll notice, the ez80 TI scene has been pretty busy in the last few months!


SokoMario

This is a Sokoban clone with Super Mario in it. It isn't finished, but the author showcases some of the Sprites library capabilities in this hybrid BASIC game.

Download link


2048

This one is self-explanatory: It's a 2048 game for the TI-84 Plus CE, written in C, and it looks as good as the original.

Download link


Minesweeper

A nice-looking Minesweeper clone by Merthsoft which stays very true to the original PC game.

Download link and discussion


Zombie Chase

Several years ago, Spenceboy98 made Zombie Chase for the fx-CG10 and fx-CG20 calculators. Written in C, he has now ported it to the TI-84 Plus CE series.

Download link and discussion


Flappy Bird

A nice looking port of the infamous mobile game

Download link


Stacker

This arcade game was notorious for being rigged, with the last row seemingly impossible to stack properly due to the game never stopping the block exactly when you press the button. It's unclear if Unicorn's CE port emulates that "feature", but it's surely gonna entertain you for a while.

Download link and discussion


1000 Bornes

This is a calculator port of the old and popular French card game called Mille Bornes. It's a car-themed game which is explained in further details here.

Download link and news


Pegs

Remember this game from Detacheds Solutions' PuzzPack app for the TI-84 Plus? It has been ported to the TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition two years ago, but it has now been remade in C for the TI-84 Plus CE series of calculators.

Download link and discussion


Game of Life

A TI-84 Plus CE implementation of the cellular automata program known as Conway's Game of Life

Download link and discussion


Archive Undelete CE

A few years ago, this program was released for monochrome calculators to help people recover their programs lost due to archive corruption. While we always recommend that everyone back up their softwares often, this tool can be very handy in dire or unexpected situations.

Download link and discussion


TI-Innovator

The TI-Innovator is a device that includes a TI MSP432 Launchpad development board and is compatible with the TI-84 Plus CE and TI-Nspire calculator series. Those who liked to mess around with Arduino boards might be very interested by this, but remember that the TI-Innovator was made by TI, meaning that the retail price might end up on the high side. Still, it is very nice to see Texas Instruments show interests in the hobbyist community and recognize that those devices can be very handy in school for learning purposes! The video above showcases it in action.

Notable Game and Software Releases
We have been slow on calculator release news in the last few months due to various factors, such as life duties, programming, Summer vacations and two episodes of ghost busting that happened in Quebec City last weekend when myself, @Juju and @Patrick Davidson met in person. But it's now time to start clearing the CodeWalrus news pending queue of 39 programs (it's possible that we missed some, but yes, the pending queue really reached 39), so let's start with TI-Nspire material!


nBoot

We had waited before newsing about this particular software due to lack of tutorials and the high risks of using it without one, but it's now time to mention nBoot. If you're stuck with Boot1 3.0.0.99 on your TI-Nspire, once you have read the tutorial the nBoot will give you total control of your calculator, from hardware revision A to V. An example of use for this tool, once you read the tutorial, is that you can now boot straight into Linux on your TI-Nspire CX. Once you have read the tutorial, you can dual-boot, for example, with Linux and the Nspire OS, although according to the news, it won't necessarily give you by itself alone the power to run a CAS OS on a non-CAS calculator model. Make sure to read the tutorial before using this.

Link to tutorial and downloads (Reading the tutorial carefully is VERY important, else you will brick your calculator!)


Wolfenstein 3D

The long-time classic 3D first-person shooter has been ported by @gameblabla !

Download link and discussion


Spears of Destiny

This is the prequel to Wolfenstein 3D, released after the original game. You can now play the 21 levels on your TI-Nspire using the demo version.

Download link and discussion


Witching Hour

Another port using the Wolf3D engine, with enhancements such as a textured ceiling and floor for more realistic effects.

Download link and discussion


KillMinds

Gameblabla has ported a puzzle game based on SupraKillMinds for the Sega Genesis, which was based on Quartet.

Download link and discussion


nSquareCells

Ajorians is back in business with this new TI-Nspire puzzle game!

Download link and discussion


SMS Plus

A new console emulator for the TI-Nspire CX, ported by gameblabla, this time emulating the Sega Master System at full speeed without frame skipping nor overclocking necessary.

Download link and discussion


Temper

The Temper Turbografx-16 emulator port now supports CD-based games, providing that you manage to remove the audio that can be removed from games. Some games might fit without having to remove any audio from them, though. Basically, it's now possible to play Ys I through IV on your TI-Nspire with Temper.

Download link and discussion


nSquirrel

An high-level imperative, object-oriented programming language for the TI-Nspire, ported by @Duke "Tape" Eiyeron . Now you have even more programming freedom on the TI-Nspire CX!

Download link and discussion


UPDATE: Added nBoot in the list, now that a tutorial is available.

Notable Game and Software Releases
So the tie-breaker poll almost ended into another tie, which would have forced us to extend it in some sort of sudden-death fashion, but finally it ended with a single vote difference, with 17 votes distributed across the two entries.

ICE Compiler has the extra vote and has thus won the Montly CW Project Award for June 2016. Congratulations @PT_ and great job to everyone else for their contributions! :)
