The stills don't show that much. It depends on which platform you are considering as well. If you want it more 3d esque, that's going to be better suited to the 68k calcs (FAT engine), Casio Prizm, or Nspire. You have much more speed and resolution to work with. If you are considering Z80, your resolution and graphics will be much more limited. 3d can be done with raycasting (with ASM), but results might not be that great.

(Took out the cause of the bleeding eyes)
This would be a great idea, however, how hard would it be to make?  The controls wouldn't be that bad, touchpad for looking and numbers for moving, but the whole point of slender is the creepy music that builds up.  Without sound output on the CX CAS (color calculator would be best I'm assuming) all of that will be lost, making the game much less suspenseful. Not to mention how long I think porting that game would take... (It is a computer game after all, and a new one at that.  Most ports of games on Ndless are all older like GB, GBA, NES, Dodgin', etc.)
You just lost the game.

Well, considering that dead space runs on an actual 3d engine, I don't think it's a very feasible option for the calculator. The basis of the game might still hold valid, however, and it's definetely something I'd think would be cool.

True. If you have a CX, I think there are some chess games for GBA that you could run. But they don't work on regular Nspires so this would definitely be a good idea ;)
I own: 83+ ; 84+SE ; 76.fr ; CX CAS ; Prizm ; 84+CSE
Sorry if I answer with something that seems unrelated, English is not my primary language and I might not have understood well. Sorry if I make English mistakes too.

There's http://chessforeva.blogspot.fr/2011/02/lua-chess-engine.html , but not sure if the performance will be good on Nspire.

Don't worry, we've all been new at one point. Thanks for fixing the problem :)

By the way, excessive caps/exclamation marks are usually considered bad netiquette too, because they sound like shouting and can get annoying.

Temple Run.

After looking around a bit, it actually looks pretty simple.  The hardest part would be the graphics, but I'm guessing it could be some sort of raycaster?
Then with trees and stuff added on..


I might take this up...going on vacation this week but once the summer's over, we'll see

Raycasting wouldn't work for Temple Run because the view isn't flat (perfectly horizontal), and in fact you can see over "walls" in many cases (such as here, where you can tell the torches and shelves appear above one another). The view also moves up and down, anyway. Mode 7 might look nice for the ground—maybe you could treat everything as "ground," since there aren't too many walls anyway.

Yesterday I found a cool game called "Not Tetris 2" written in Lua. It's similar to Tetris but with physics, so the blocks are rotating and it's more difficult to complete a row than in the original version.
Now I thought it could be possible to create a clone of "Not Tetris 2" for a calculator like the TI-84 Plus. But it seems like BASIC is not enough because of performance reasons, so in my opionion Axe or Assembly would be a better choice. What do you think? Personally I'm neither very experienced in Axe nor Assembly.

By the way, here's the project homepage of the developer: http://stabyourself.net/nottetris2/
