So... What ever happened to Jumpman for TI calcs?

Good question. 3 years ago, my hard drive crashed and the data was not recoverable. I had made a recent backup of all my TI projects on a USB thumb drive. Good idea right? Yes... but not if you lose that backup. I frantically searched for it a number of times over several years without success. Very depressing to think you've lost everything.

Well... a few weeks ago that USB stick turned up; and I have resurrected this project.

Here are some new screenshots of levels I have completed recently


Hot Foot


Dragon Slayer


Grand Puzzle II


Gun FIghter


Now You See It


I have 8 levels remaining to complete. Jumpman should be complete within 1 month. 8)

Is it for the 84+ or for a different family? :)

Thanks p2 for your kind comments. Jumpman is for the TI-89. It is coded in C using GCC4TI.

Thanks everybody.  :)

Here's a level called Ladder Challenge:



You have to move with the ladder a little bit or you will slowly slide up or down depending on the direction of the ladder.

Thanks p2. The screenshot doesn't show everything. It's hard to get a small screenshot with all movements. You can jump on and off the ladder at will... You can even walk on to and off of the ladder from a girder.. You can also climb up and down while on the ladder.

That looks very good. Do the moving platforms there work yet? I heard they can be hard to get to work in games. Glad to see most levels finished :)

Thanks DJ. All of the moving platforms work... and yes... they were difficult to implement and to get working properly.

Another level... this one is called Roll Me Over.

Nothing too fancy... just two barrels rolling around.



5 levels to go. :thumbsup:

How can barrels move up ladders? O.O

Also this definitively reminds me of Donkey Kong :P
