Contest 2013 Calculator Gaming Roots
« on: September 23, 2013, 11:59:43 pm »


This year our contest is about what makes gaming on the calculator fun. That means simple games that make you want to go back and play over and over again. Not because they are technically challenging or visually the most interesting, but because the concept makes the game stand out as an enjoyable item to have on your calculator. For this contest, we are focusing on the TI-83+ series (TI-83+/SE,TI-84+/SE). Please see below for the list of categories.

We have 2 categories this year:
  • 1. BASIC
  • 2. Axe/Assembly/Hybrid BASIC


Contestants should email their entries to O M N I M A G A 2 0 1 3 @gmail.com by November 5th 2013, 12:00 AM UTC-5. Please remember to include a readme file with your entry and instructions on how to play your game. Also remember to include information on any libraries that may be needed in order to run your game.

Prizes

Rules:

1: The game must not contain adult material or extremely offensive content (such as racial slurs).

2: You are not allowed to enter a project that was started prior the start of the contest. You can use code, images, and ideas from it, though.

3: You are allowed (and encouraged) to announce updates and screenshots of your project anywhere, but you are NOT allowed to provide any download copies of it (or the entire source code) to anyone until the end of the contest.

4: Help is allowed, as long as you respect rule #3. Also, keep in mind that usage of other people's code may affect your originality score considerably.

5: You must have a forum account to participate.

6: Only one entry per person per category is allowed

7: Your entry must be submitted before November 6th 2013, 11:59 PM UTC-5. We will not be accepting any more entries past this deadline.

8: Omnimaga has the right to change and modify the rules at any time.

Forum members interested in judging should message a staff member. You may judge any category that you are not participating in. A grading rubric will be posted soon as it has been typed up. Good luck everyone!



So people were having issues with telling what style programs we are looking for so I figure I would add screenies and links to some games that fit the description. Now this isn't saying there would make good entries its just the style of game play we are looking for. so here you all go

http://www.ticalc.org/archives/files/fileinfo/259/25959.html


http://www.omnimaga.org/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=450



These are all games that you can pick up and play and are simple to understand yet will keep you coming back to play more and that is what we want to see.

If you have any questions please pm me i will answer them as fast as I can.

Good luck!

Nice prize and contest, also although it depends of people's opinion, I am glad that the 1st prize is a platform open to development. :)

By the way, I assume that it's a TI-83+ contest, right?
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

This contest convinced me to finally stop lurking, but now I see it's a contest only for z80 programs, and I was hoping to make an nspire program (don't have a z80 calc D:).

So, the games we are supposed to make are simple, yet playable and addicting (mini-games)? I don't quite understand.

I think so. ;)
I'm probably in, if I can find an idea. :P

Also since the op mentions Axe I guess it's for the 83+ family. ;)

@XiiR3CR34T1ON:
For this contest, we are focusing on the TI-83+ series (TI-83+/SE,TI-84+/SE). Please see below for the list of categories.

@Spyro: Games that are simplistic in nature yet fun. It could be something as simple as a snake game, or Pong. Early arcade type games are great examples. You should be able to pick it up and just play.
