Phoenix arrives on the TI-Nspire
« on: November 07, 2011, 07:43:33 pm »
Those who wanted a Phoenix clone for the TI-Nspire OS 3.0 or higher can now rejoice: Florent Destremau has released one today!



Like the versions that were released by Patrick Davidson years ago on every Z80 calculator except the TI-81, this Lua clone features challenging levels, enemies and of course a shop to upgrade your ship as you progress through the game.

You can download it here, but keep in mind that the instructions are in French. The ship shoots automatically. Use arrows to move around, S to open the shop, Esc to exit it or pause the game and Home to quit.

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 know that Lua has its limits, but that doesn't seem to be stopping the community from making these awesome games!  Another great one FTW!
There are people who can speak two languages, and they are called bilingual.  There are people who speak three languages and are therefore trilingual.  Then there are people who speak one language, and these people are called Americans.

It does! Another great use of Nspire Lua (and those graphics are great).

Looks very nice, I congratulate the author for making it so good :)
Lua has indeed its down sides, but I know (and others, like the author of this game) that you still can do magic with it :)
This is why I'm happy that TI added it, I couldn't think of a better interpreted language (for the nspire).

Yeah I'M glad we're at least not stuck with the crippled TI-Nspire BASIC language anymore.

Wow, this looks quite impressive! Lua is proving to be quite capable. I can't believe TI did something right for once...

Haha my highest is 269000.
The game will repeat itself and bullets hurt more which screwed me over... I got to the 3rd round of repeats.  I managed to buy the ultimate weapon!!! :D
You just lost the game.
