Jumpman
« on: October 22, 2010, 04:20:45 am »
I have begun a new project called Jumpman for the TI-89.

Jumpman is a platform game written by Randy Glover and released by Epyx in 1983. Originally developed for the Atari 400/800, versions were also released for the Commodore 64, Apple II, and IBM PC.

Wikipedia - Jumpman

Here is a link to the Commodore 64 boxed set.

Here are a few Youtube videos of the Commodore 64 version of Jumpman Jr.



And finally... here are a few screenshots of TI-89 Jumpman in action.




Edit: Added Jumpman titlescreen screenshot. Also, removed Youtube videos of Jumpman -- they were removed by their author.

That looks pretty fun to play, I hope to see more progress on this soon :)
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

I need to create at least one level before I can proceed any further.

Wow that looks pretty awesome!  And doing some research it seems like this would be an excellent calc game since it has so much replayability due to the originality of each level.

It will be TI-89... possibly ti-92+.

I don't have an Nspire yet. So... No Nspire version.

Ah, I got confused by the screenshot because I've never seen one for an 89. What emulator do you use?

Maybe Apcalc or Bwang could port this to the Nspire afterward, assuming this is all C

I'm doing well Art. Thanks for asking. I am recovering nicely from my recent neck surgery. I'm reducing my pain meds everyday... should be off of them in a couple of days. And I'll start physical therapy in one week. Hurray!
