##### Picross - TI-84+ CSE/CE demo
« on: November 21, 2017, 04:28:12 am »
When the CSE came out, my first color TI-BASIC game was Cookie Clicker +C, which is to date my most popular file on TICalc.

Almost 4 years later, my second color TI-BASIC game was Descent, which is unique in that it is cross-compatible with the older monochrome models.

Now, I am proud to introduce my third ever color TI-BASIC game, Picross!

For those who do not know what Picross is, Picross is a picture logic puzzle, and you must color or leave blank spaces in a grid according to numbers on the side to reveal a hidden picture. The Wikipedia page on Picross has some more information.

At the moment, it is only a demo, with the ability to view and solve a random puzzle of a random size. The numbers going across on the top and the side are supposed to represent the numbers for the current row and column. You may edit the grid with 2ND and ALPHA, and when you solve the puzzle, the game detects this and tells you.

Nice. So is Picross like a mix of minesweeper and soduku?

Kinda, but one is not penalized for wrong coloring.

Bump.

Now, navigating the grid is much faster, and a correctly colored row or column automatically gets its blank squares marked blank.

Bump.

Added a 30 minute timer, and time penalties.
