Welcome to CodeWalrus: A software development community with a focus on retro-gaming, music and pixel art on various mobile platforms, including graphing calculators, as well as game consoles and PC.
Since October 2014, our active members and staff have released several new games for the Sega Dreamcast, Panasonic 3DO, Atari 2600, TI-84 Plus, TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition, TI-84 Plus CE, TI-Nspire CX, HP Prime, Casio fx-9860G, Android phones and computers. This includes First Fantasy: Mana Force, Sorcery of Uvutu, Reuben Quest: Lost Between Times, Oiram CE (a Super Mario clone), SQRXZ CE, KillMinds, VVSSV, Line++, Lazer 2, GalagACE and Wal-Rush! Various existing games, such as This is the Only Level, Androides, Billybox, Mandragore, Bejeweled, Flappy Bird, Pac-Man and Pac-Attack, were also ported to TI calculators by our users and various retro gaming console emulators (SNES, Turbografx-16, Sega Genesis, Master System, etc) were released for the TI-Nspire CX.
Aside from game development, our participating forum users have released notable tools such as ICE Compiler, Houstontracker 2, CEmu, the C SDK and Libraries for the CE. We also have our share of musicians and pixel artists as well, along with a massive database of MTV Music Generator series songs from the remains of TIMGUL.
A lot of new projects are also active in the development section, ranging from new games to programming utilities and 3D engines, so expect new releases at any moment. Make sure to visit the authors' topics to voice your suggestions and encouragements!
We intend to provide a friendly place to discuss your favorite topics, to hang out and to showcase your projects and releases, so hopefully you feel at home here. Registration is free and only takes a few seconds!

First of all, we are pleased to announce that our staff member @p2
has been promoted from Topic Manager to Moderator. While he could perform minor forum moderation tasks under his old position, his new one will give him more freedom.
In addition to that, two RPG Maker 2003 games have been added to the CodeWalrus Arcade section: The Mysterious Cities of Gold II: The Curse of Amirax (a non-canon RPG sequel to the 1982 anime), and Super Star Hero v0.1 (a sci-fi action-RPG demo set in a distant Quebec future). Thanks to Juju and the team that made EasyRPG for making this possible. While you might experience lag and some glitches due to EasyRPG limitations, you can now play both games without having to download them and they are now multi-platform (although mobile touchscreen controls don't appear to be available).
And finally, I am pleased to announce that after several years of wait, my 2007-2009 music albums are finally available for sale on Bandcamp, alongside my two recent releases. This also includes the non-stop DJ mix called Hardcore Armageddon from 2007. The next step will be CD releases, but there is currently no time table for that. CodeWalrus ArcadeDJ Omnimaga music page

I am pleased to announce the release of my two newest music albums: In UK Hardcore and Dance we Trust and Illegal Music Chemistry!
Although I haven't done many songs since 2014 ended, my last full-lenght album release was in December 2013 with Ancient Kingdom of Omnimaga and the last one to feature electronic dance music was in early 2009, with Destiny Knight. As a result, many of the electronic dance, chiptune and experimental songs I made after 2009 were never made available on any of my releases, except the A Decade of Magic Hardcore and A Decade of Omnidance compilations, both of which came out in 2012.
Just like every album I released from 2007 to 2008, both IUKHADWT and IMC go the same route as Stratovarius' Intermission: Newer songs with a bunch of older tracks. In fact, In UK Hardcore and Dance we Trust is essentially a reboot of my previously canceled 2009 album Magic Hardcore, which died due to my 2 years hiatus from dance music making. However, like Destiny Knight, this album doesn't feature any track from my old tapes, and this is where Illegal Music Chemistry comes into play. IMC is basically a collection of previously unreleased songs (other than on Youtube, Soundcloud or my two massive hardcore/dance compilations), the more recent ones ranging from synthpop and hi-NRG to chiptune music, while all the 2003 songs are digitally-remastered cassette rips that never made it on any of my older albums.
You can now download the two albums on Bandcamp below, but before you do so, there's more to come: After many years of wait and increasing demand, there will now be physical CD releases of my albums
! As of 2017, there are only four physical copies of my music releases in existence, all of which are Ancient Kingdom of Omnimaga Special Edition. For now, Illegal Music Chemistry is setup for imminent physical album release as I wait for a sample copy to arrive to make sure the quality is up to my standards. Once this album is made available physically to the public via Kunaki shop, IUKHADWT and my two metal albums will soon receive the same treatment. While ADOMH and ADOO compilations will never see a physical release, my back-catalogue from 2007-09
will finally get one, meaning that you'll eventually be able to hold a copy of Epic Journey Through the Galaxy, Journey Through the Moon Dark Side, Enter the Dream World, Angel in the Stars, It's the End of Time and Destiny Knight in your hands!
So without further ado, here are the links to In UK Hardcore and Dance we Trust and Illegal Music Chemistry, my first albums in 3 years:https://djomnimaga.bandcamp.com/album/in-uk-hardcore-and-dance-we-trusthttps://djomnimaga.bandcamp.com/album/illegal-music-chemistry

In 1996, a PC game called SQRXZ came out. Released by Maze and Hojo, it was later ported to the TI-85, TI-86 and TI-92 by Jimmy Mårdell and later to the TI-83 and TI-83+/84+ series by Solignac Julien and became a classic on ticalc.org. In 2015, it was ported to the TI-Nspire CX by gameblabla, along with SQRXZ 3 and 4.
But now, the TI-Z80 ASM version has finally made its way to the TI-83 Premium CE and TI-84 Plus CE!
This game is inspired from Mario series, but with generally much more challenging levels, although custom levels from the TI-83+/84+ version are supported and a CE level editor is supposed to be released in the near future. The gameplay is very smooth, with a frame rate approaching 60 FPS.
