Didn't you make a mock-up of a CE Metroid somewhere? You could start from that and use the newly available resources to make your next masterpiece.

Yeah I did. I would probably use those tiles. They were designed to have multiple color palettes, though. Of course despite using Sprites by grosged I would still not use any scrolling, though, to keep speed as high as possible.

So I wonder how hard it would be to make a :walrii: Go game? That said, if it was too similar to Pokémon Go then maybe Nintendo wouldn't like <_<

It would be interesting, but for sure it would be for mobile devices. I wish I knew how to create apps (and I might learn someday), but I definitely couldn't make that.

Something that would be cool if that was made is if the map was designed to look closer to retro RPGs or maybe even mode 7. It would be an huge undertaking, though.

The other idea I had was a post-apocalyptic game involving one of the only few people in the world that did not die in a car accident or homicide while playing Pokémon Go in July 2016. :P You would have to find other survivors.

My idea for a game (which I want to make on my TI 84+CE-T (basically a TI 84+CE) is called "Kill The Evil Queen"

It starts with Prince Phillip announcing on the news that The Queen is actually an evil monster with rotating teeth. He is in shock.

The task is to kill the Queen but she can shapeshift into various types of monster, including a giant lizard which makes her quite hard to kill!

What do you guys think?  (-_(//));

Sounds cool!
Any idea for any plot other than that? Platformer? Dungeon crawler? Shooter?
Will there be story progression or just levels? Who is the player? A little more design would help.

Not too sure of the details yet, but a top-down 2D shooter type thing, possibly with RPG/puzzle solving elements.

*EDIT*
You may be able to thieve artifacts (such as the Queen's crown) from Buckingham palace as you go!

Again a little design would help. (unless you are like me and just make stuff and see what it turns out to be)
I have found that I have made some neat games and simulations with experimenting with something and then just kept adding on to it until it becomes something. (it also helps to know your programming limits - memory speed ect.)
Good luck!

...
Agreed, the design does need filling out. I have 3 main battle screens in my head, I know how they are going to look. But that's just 3 screens. It does need fleshing out. But I don't want to reveal to much on here just yet! Ha ha!

BTW did you know the Queen wears bowler hats?

I also have an idea for a game based on the film Kill Command, where you can be in only one of two locations - up a tree, or in a bot shop at the foot of the tree. It is heavily 'imaginary technology' based. Don't know if it will work  >:D

I like the idea @kotu about Kill the Evil Queen. Just make sure that the ticalc.org version of the game doesn't include an actual picture of Queen Elizabeth, though, since their rules appear not to allow depicting real people other than the game author (this is why only the CodeWalrus and TI-Planet versions of Opossum Massage Simulator have a picture of Donald Trump). :P

As for ideas, since she's evil in the game, maybe she could be possessed by some evil spirit or past leader that was particularly bad and now she must be "killed" as some form of exorcism? It could also be that she died but became undead in the future and now must be killed.

Interesting ideas.

As for the portrayal of real people, I don't think I can really make this game without doing it.  :-\
Does that mean I can't even mention people by name?

Either ignore the rule or let ticalc die alone.
If you want to make this game, go for it.

Plottwist: The evil queen (she was really evil) was taken hostage by the Reptiloids that try to take over the world. So once you defeat and kill the reptiloid wearing a mask so he looks like the queen you go and free the true queen - So she can continue what the reptiloid did since shes evil, too --> Part two of the game "Kill the evil queen AGAIN"
