Title: Towers for NSpire
Post by: ajorians on February 17, 2014, 08:00:39 pm
Hey Guys,

I was working on a puzzle game for the TI-NSpire calculators.  It is called Towers.  The game board represents a city grid with buildings of various heights represented only by the height.  Looking at the buildings from a spot you can see a certain number of buildings.  If a building of a smaller height is behind a taller building it is obscured.  The number on the side represent the number of buildings you can see from that position.

Included is a document showing an example game and the rules.  So hopefully the game will make more sense if it sounds confusing.

The game can be played with external levels (included is a small example level).  There are 24 levels built in; and you can view the solution with the 'tab' key.  You can undo/redo any moves.

All of the source files are included.

Give it a try and let me know what you think! :)

Here some video/images!  Have a great day!

Interesting, I'll need to check how this is played to understand more though, but I really love how you have the scrolling background and translucent stuff O.O

Thanks guys!

I was able to fix just a couple of bugs as well as made sure it works on a non-CX NSpire.  I think this should be good for a while and I'll work on making something new.  Though I'll keep the scrolling background for future puzzle games like this because I like it too.

Attached is the latest.

Have a great day!
