It's time for a wrap up of some previously unmentioned calculator and console releases that were piling up in our news pending queue in the past few months. Although this list probably misses many releases due to less free time, it still contains some noteworthy games that you might want to give a try. Most are for TI calculators, but there are some for other brands of calculators and retro-gaming consoles as well:

-Switch Operator (TI-84 Plus CE) http://www.ticalc.org/archives/files/fileinfo/468/46804.html
A Cemetech Contest 17 entry, this is a reaction-based game where you need to let trains go through switches, featuring nice graphics and fast-paced gameplay.

-Chess (TI-84 Plus CE) https://codewalr.us/index.php?topic=1606.0
A Chess game is finally available for the CE and it features good graphics and advanced AI.

-Catylizm CE (TI-84 Plus CE) https://www.cemetech.net/programs/index.php?mode=file&id=1513
Originally released on the Casio fx-CG10 and CG20, this amazing-looking game has been ported by his author, Spenceboy98, to the TI-84 Plus CE.

-Lord of Fire (TI-86) http://www.ticalc.org/archives/files/fileinfo/467/46799.html
A rogue-like turn-based RPG with nice graphics. While it has many sub-programs for its content, the game is still kinda fun and challenging. It's also very rare to see new TI-86 games nowadays.

-Ends of Fantasy (TI-Nspire CX) https://tiplanet.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=43&t=18908
visual novel for TI-Nspire CX (doesn't appear to have an English version, though)

-Arena (fx-9860gII) http://www.planet-casio.com/Fr/programmes/voir_un_programme_casio.php?showid=3152
Amazing looking grayscale arena-based game with battles similar to JRPGs.

-Flappy Bird (HP Prime) https://codewalr.us/index.php?topic=1584.msg44300#msg44300
Flappy Bird has finally been ported to the HP Prime.

-Infinity (Game Boy Color) http://www.ticalc.org/archives/news/articles/14/148/148949.html
Cancelled Game Boy color RPG by Affinix Software and the author of Joltima for Z80 calculators. Some older TI community might remember this project, as it made ticalc.org headlines back in the days. The game was canceled in 2001 due to being unable to find publishers, but last Summer it was finally released as is. The soundtrack was released a few weeks later at https://soundcloud.com/ericsgamemusic/sets/infinity-by-affinix-software

-Papi Commando (Sega Genesis) http://www.magicalgamefactory.com/en/factory/shop/
Top-down run and gun game similar to Ikari Warriors and Commando, by Studio Vetea. It's a paid software but we're posting it anyway because you can buy it in actual Sega Genesis cartridge format and play it on a real console like back in the early 90's.

Also, the following is not a release, but we thought we would mention it anyway: Did you know that there used to be a Super Nintendo version of Rayman in development? It was unfortunately canceled in favor of newer consoles back then, but earlier this week, a physical copy of an early build was found, thought to have been lost forever until then. See http://raymanpc.com/wiki/en/Rayman_(early_production) for more info. Could that early demo ever make it into a ROM download or even be completed, one day?

That's very cool to hear they eventually found the prototype.
What's not cool is the fact it was found by the Ubisoft employees themselves...
Unless someone steals the cart, i don't think it will be released in the wild.

Also, i still need to try out Infinity because that's mah stuff u no.

Infinity features things never done before on the GBC, making the game looks like a GBA game at times. But when the GBA came out, publishers started f**ping to it and stopped caring about GBC.

As for Rayman I hope so as well. My worry, though, is that apparently the found prototype is an early version.

I did but I died after two fights lol. It's fine if you don't mind the slow speed, which is common in TI-86 BASIC games since that language is slower than on other Z80 calcs. That and I think the programmer doesn't know the tricks we learned on newer calcs that would have allowed him to use less sub-programs (which can cause the entire calc to slowdown by themselves)
