Androides - Tilemap-based platformer for the CE, made in C
« on: October 26, 2015, 02:27:18 pm »
These last few days, I've been working (with some little help from Adriweb) on a game for the TI-83 Premium CE / TI-84 Plus CE, "Androides".
It's not a Mario, but it's still the first platformer game for the CE !

More accurately, it's an adaptation of a Lode Runner like game released in 1985 by Infogrames.


In this game, you have to collect all parcels of a room filled with walls, ladders and suspended hand-to-hand bars, in order to access the next room.
But you'll have to avoid the deadly android guardians who are constantly going to pursue you everywhere !
Fortunately, you can make a wall disappear for a short period in order to access new places or to trap androids.

Here's a Youtube playthrough up to the 3rd room :

But there are many more rooms if you dare ! ;)


For better performance, the game uses the CE's LCD 8bpp mode.
It features a new key scanning method compatible with simultaneous key presses. Quite useful to run before the very reactive androids !
It's also used to make block disappear, the key combo being [alphs]+[left/right].

As you can see, there is no lag. A useless sub loop has been adding specifically in order to slow down the game which was originally totally impossible.

Once again, the game was built thanks to the TI-Planet online C compiler for the CE, and as usual it's open-source.

Nice, but do you have to download anything else before you can play? (Like Doors CSE or Textlib CE)

In fact, it happens to work more reliably when launched directly with Asm( than from Cesium. However, I changed something and it works 100% of the time from me, but not for some other people, from Cesium... :(
Edit: wait, Critor changed something else and apparently it works fine now, for both of us... :)

The latest update seems to work perfectly with both Cesium and Asm(. :)

They predicted Android phones but misspelled it as Androides? O.O

Just kidding, I actually read the topic :P, this looks very cool. I wonder if you plan to release those games on ticalc.org as well while Travis still write some news? Those new games for the CE should get more exposure. :)

Anyway good job :)

I didn't have time to try the CE version yet, but I tried the JS version linked in the first post. How do you beat the first level? O.O

Game update :
  • 90 new levels
  • saves your progression upon exit, and loads it automatically on the next execution
  • levels data is now stored in a separate archived appvar, which saves a lot of RAM

One suggestion I have would be to add background variety, eg have a different background for each world. Awesome update by the way. Saving on exit can be handy when you need to quit fast and I'm glad that levels can now be archived. THe calc has a lot of RAM but having stuff archived protects it against accidental RAM clears caused by other programs and betas. :)
