Caticle Chronicles, the story in which cats fly is space, and have misadventures.

In this installment, the cats are attacked my caterites, or cat pirates, and you must shoot them down to destroy them, in increasingly harder difficulties.

This program is now available for both the CE and the CSE. I'm working on porting it to the monochrome calcs as well.

If you are looking for the development thread, look at  This.
:D

Hi, I approved your two uploads. I should give this a try at one point since this seems interesting. :) I hope the other Cemetech entries get published by their respective authors so I can try them all too.

By the way you should probably use a different image upload service, such as http://img.ourl.ca or Imgur, because the one you use right now disallows hotlinking, meaning that your image will not show up in posts.

Thanks for the tip.
I think I am going to add another part to the game and make the first part of the story into part I and this would be part II.
(Part I would be a something to do with spaceships shooting at each other)

Ooh that would be interesting to see actually. I wonder if it would be fast enough, though? Did you plan to have multiple ships moving at once like Space Invaders or closer to 1 vs 1 battles?

Unicorn

With the current problems I have with multiple enemys and the storylines description, I think I am going to make it multiple levels with one enemy each. It will be in basic, so it won't be too fast ;)

Aah ok. Good luck. And yeah TI-BASIC can put severe constraints on gameplay speed, not to mention it has some strange slowdowns that sometimes forces us to make the code larger. For example, I made a Space invader clone once that runs faster by displaying all 12 enemies displayed with 12 Output commands than using For(A,1,3:For(B,1,4:Output(A,B+P,"V":End:End >.<.

Do you think for the game shown in your screenshot above, you could use multiple colors? White, yellow and one of the shades of gray lets you use gray background.

Hmm... How would that be possible? Can't there only be one text color at a time on the graph screen?

Nah there can be multiple ones. It's just that most colors have a white background, while others (including yellow) has a light gray background.

Here it is... The Pi edition! CaterPi
Make sure to grab the updated version of Cat Nipper from this link: Cat Nipper
Everything you need to know is in the readme.

It would probably be more respectful for other CW members who don't go to Cemetech to actually give a link to the actual file so that they don't have to search for it themselves. Also, it's generally seen badly by forum staff or members if instead of actually giving information about your updates, you just tell people to find it on another site. Some people might even see it as blatant site advertising.

Also cross-posting isn't that hard. All you have to do is using CTRL+C to copy and CTRL+V to paste. :P

EDIT: Adding Caterite download link in the first post would also allow me to move this topic back to the downloads section.

Ok good, I'm moving it now :)

I'm gonna try the game too :P

Ok so after weeks of waiting, I finally tried the last version of this game. I like the idea and it's quite challenging. Surpringsly, despite being simple, it works pretty well. My suggestion would be to do like First Fantasy: Mana Force and hide the white frame and gray status bar at the top of the screen. You could perhaps even display the score/health in the empty bar at the top instead of using Output(), but then it would flicker.
