I'm planning to make a axe platformer game for this contest. I hope I'll have time enough to finish it, which I should be able to do because it's a quite simple game.

It's a port of the flash game 'Grey' which can be played here:

This will be my first game for the Ti-83+. I already have began programming on it, and am currently working on the engine(tilemapping, etc..). Unlike the game I might not have any background, but I'm not sure, because the background is a important factor in this game(color changes, etc..) Anyway the game is still in early stages. I hope to make it quite good for my first z80 game.

I'm now working so that hopefully I will have smooth scrolling. smile
That's a cool game ! I hope you will add the background. wink
And the music also (just kidding) ! grin
But it's a so sad game!!! I don't want to disapear... no!!!!
How will you do the color? Grayscales???
I know it's sad. I think I'll use greyscale but I don't have any experience with that yet. If I add a background, which I want to do, I still don't know how to make it look more colorful every time you bring something to the girl.
You can make 4 level grayscales with Axe parser. If You code correctly, it is possible to make the background slightly gray and the color with dark gray
Yes, that's would be cool. smile
You can also do 8 level grayscales, but I heard that it's a little bit difficult. grin

Good luck then ! wink
The game seems really cool smile

And it's a good choice for a first assembly game on ti83... wink

I hope you will be able to finish it tongue
Thanks a lot. I hope too I'll be able to finish. I don't have much time(exams,etc..). But maybe in October I can work hard on it.
Up !

Have you been able to work on the project?
Not really. I'm too busy with my exams. But as soon as they're done(somewhere at the end of this month) I think I'll be able to continue. smile
good luck XD
I just finished my exams and will try to work on this in my free time. I'll be working on the scrolling and stuff now.

Do you have already something to show ? (screenies?! trigni)

We all want screenies x)
I know you want screenies. XD
But I had a reset the other time and I lost everything. But the good news is I have started rightaway coding again. No screenies yet.
But here is a picture I made in photoshop, so you can compare my sprite with the original. tromb Fichier joint : n2L8 (Grey 83+.jpg)
I just played the Flash game, and wow... Never knew a game could be so sad sad

Good luck. That title screen is awesome ^^
It's not the title-screen. It's a photoshoped picture. But since everybody likes it I might use it for that. boing
Okay, I've been thinking a while and I think I'm gonna stop with this(and finish it after the contest). I have still a lot to do and I have another game in mind.
But so far not much progress.
Aww, that's too bad sad Good luck with whatever you have in mind.
Too bad...

But the most important is to finish it, no matter if it's while or after the contest smile

Yes, I will try to do that.
