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.

For many weeks I have been working on a custom and completely hand-built calculator.
So let's start with some eye-candy first
The Software is still in the works and nowhere near done.
For the CPU I am using an STM ARM CPU which is overclocked to 96 MHz. It also has USB, an SD Card, a Serial / IO port, a 2200mAh LiPo, a Status LED, a Nokia 5110 LCD and a 3x4 keypad.
I hope you like it

Here's a new game i worked on for the Ludum Dare Retro (will soon post it there) : Evil Australians.
Evil Australians is a video game developed by me, gameblabla.
It's a platforming arena game made from scratch with the help of my own library, Gameblabla's Wrapper.
The game has several missions and in each mission, you are stuck in an arena where
you must defeat all the remaining enemies.
To defeat the enemies, you have a rapid-fire gun that can shoot several bullets at the same time.3DO versionStory
John, living in Australia, is an avid video game collector.
However, he learns from the news that the Australian government is soon going to ban video games.
John became furious :
he grabs his weapons and swears vengeance on the government.
However 7 years ago,
the government collected his own DNA as part of a secret project.
This secret project allowed the government to steal DNAs from all the aussies.
The Government learned of John's plan and they used his DNA to build an entire clone army of himself.
John is now facing an entire army of himself,
will he make it alive and finally kill the law ?Controls (PC)
