Jumpman - Resurrected
« on: February 14, 2017, 11:40:41 pm »
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 plan on resurrecting this project.

Awesome! I'm glad you finally found the USB drive. Let me know when you've officially resurrected this project and I'll move it out of the Discontinued board.

It is officially resurrected.

I just finished getting spears and hotfoot abilities working. 27 levels complete. 15 levels to go.   :)

Sweet! It looks amazing from the last post you had of it! There aren't many TI 89 games being worked on out there.

Thanks everyone. Here's two more levels: Dragon Slayer and Hot Foot.

Dragon Slayer has conditional waypoints, timed girder drops, and spear throwing.

Hot Foot has explosions whenever Jumpman jumps... resulting in girder destruction. If too much of the girder is destroyed you may fall to your death.

Wow, this looks awesome! I thought it would have been hard for you to pick up a game you've lost for a number of years, but you seem to be doing alright!

Thanks for your kind words and support coops!

Here's another level. This one is called Gunslinger. It has the same AI as Robots 3, but these guys can shoot back.



Status: 32 out of 42 levels completed.

Another day... another level completed. This one is called Mystery Maze. No screenshot of this since it is very similar to the Blackout level (see the Screenshots page).

Status: 33 of 42 levels complete; only 3 more enemies to implement (roosters, rolling barrels, and freezers) and only 2 more special features. Implementing enemies and special abilities/features always slow me down.

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.
