Castlevania: Prelude of Chaos ported to PC
« on: November 09, 2020, 01:39:12 pm »


If you haven't seen it yet, Castlevania: Prelude of Chaos was ported to the PC. This game was originally for the 82, 83, and 83+ series of calculators, as seen on ticalc. The port is an interesting technological feat, where an interpreter was written to handle system calls, keyboard, and controller input. The port also includes a new original soundtrack.

You can find the game on itch.io

I tried this again for the first time in 13 years (original thread: https://www.omnimaga.org/ti-z80-calculator-projects/castlevania/ ) and it's very fun and true to the NES games. I didn't go far this time too, however. I personally liked Simon's Quest style so I'm glad this game followed its style too. :D

Also nice to see his 2007 posts added to his new account.
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

Huh, I bet we could use a calculator as a keyboard for this.

This is the kind of meta we didn't know we needed.

I just found my old TI-83 calculator from school and thought i should catch up a little bit.
Its amazingly more advanced than i thought it would be.
Calculators are not just only for maths
