For years, the TI-84 Plus series had access to Super Mario 1.2 and 2.0 by Sam Heald, a long-time classic for older calculator models. Unfortunately, TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition users were left in the cold due to the calculator's short lifespan (it was discontinued after only two years), its extremely poor performances and arguably the lack of viable C programming and libraries for it, all of which made developers skeptical about whether that platform could support a side-scrolling platformer. Fortunately for TI-83 Premium CE, TI-84 Plus CE and TI-84 Plus CE-T owners, this is not the case, thanks to the platform's superior power and the dedication of @MateoConLechuga
, a Super Mario clone is now available for those color screen calculators!
While the game plays similar to Super Mario Bros 3, it has a few differences, mainly related to physics, animations and the behavior of some enemies and objects. In addition to that, the game graphics can reportedly be replaced if Nintendo ever decides to extend its war against fan games towards the Texas Instruments calculator scene. Dubbed Oiram, this TI-84 Plus CE side-scrolling platformer features a Windows-compatible level editor, allowing you to make your own Mario levels, but in addition to that, you can even make your own worlds, a feature that the Wii U and 3DS game Super Mario Maker lacks. The game, from a Mario perspective, also features significant improvements over the monochrome clone for an even better experience and greater freedom.
Make sure to download this game and the level editor as soon as possible, because they're worth it, and they have just been updated with bug fixes!
