2 years of Axe Parser
« on: February 01, 2012, 10:47:23 pm »
Today marks the second anniversary of the very first release of Axe Parser by Quigibo. Two years ago, on Feburary 1st, 2010, Quigibo posted on our forums Axe 0.0.1, a revolutionary new programming language for the TI-83+ series. This release didn't contained a lot of features, but still enough to compete with the already existing assembly libraries and the like. The program quickly gained popularity, becoming the most used language for the 83+/84+ and one of the hugest pillars of Omnimaga, probably even making the TI community double its activity. Axe even competes with TI-Basic and assembly, the two official languages that comes with the 83+, due to the easy learning curve with TI-Basic and the ASM-like powers of the language. Nowadays, Axe 1.1.1 comes with countless features making powerful ASM games to be written as easily as in TI-Basic.

We would like to thank Quigibo for his huge contribution to the calc community, without Axe, the community probably wouldn't be as active and interesting as now.

EDIT: Axe 1.1.2 Second Anniversary Edition is out, have fun using the new Axe Fusion feature!

I must note that the month Axe Parser got announced, out of the 2614 posts that were made during that month, over 760 were located in the Axe Parser projects section and that doesn't include Axe projects. The months after, that section alone averaged around 600-800 posts a month. This tells how much people wanted such language to arrive.

Granted there are people who will look upon Axe because many Axe games that came out are sub-par quality in terms of coding and originality (many Axe clones of smaller-sized ASM games that have been done several times before), but that's the case with any language that is easy to learn for new coders and this doesn't mean the entire language or every Axe game are bad.

Yeay! Happy Birthday Axe. I have only made only one game with Axe parser, but it was enough to show me how great it is. Well done Quigibo!
