Space Invaders Lua update and Pixel Escape v0.8
« on: June 14, 2011, 12:32:47 am »
Chokosta have released version 1.0 of his Space Invaders clone in TI-Nspire Lua. It now has rocks to protect yourself from enemy shots but to also block your own shots and you can now invert the game display.



The game update can be downloaded here.

In addition to that, Hoffa has released version 0.8 of a Copter clone in Lua for the TI-Nspire. It features smooth movement and obstacles along with the walls. There's a video of it in action, but the title screen has been changed since then:




The latest version is available here.

Space Invaders 0.8 is already in my calc and it's pretty great. However, I'd still like an English version and highscores :) I really like it though.

I gotta put Pixel Escape on my calc too! :D

Well, there are only two words and one sentence in French, so I thought that it was not annoying for English speaking people.
But I can change that... ("Vies"=Lives, "Niveau"=Level, "Appuyez sur R pour rejouer"=Press R to try again)

And for high scores, I don't really know how to do that. I could use a var of the doc. But I would have to add a menu, and I'm lazy  :P

You can use [lua]locale.name[/lua] to get the language of the calculator and automatically set the language. Pretty easy :)
