Yeah, I can't wait for the next release! These games are probably the best minigames written in TI-BASIC so far.  :)

And, I was bored, so I just decided to optimize my Gravity game slightly more. It's not much more, but it gets rid of an unneccesary Delvar K (I didn't need it anymore) and -1->S (Delvar S saves a little memory, and it was easy to make it work).

I might do something like this too in the future, but my current 3 games are unfinished/way too big/both and I'm working on my RPG game most of the time.

Also, the games look great, especially Gravity!

You could maybe port these games to the 9860G. It would be really nice, although I guess some would require Kucalc's CPU modifier add-in.

Awesome!  I finally had enough time to get these onto my calc. :)  I'd expect a new release in the next week or two. ^-^
Thanks again to everyone who contributed games.  Please note that I may not use one or two of them, and I'll be optimizing them before I put them in the Gamepack. ;D

Thanks, Ashbad!  I've always kept this as one thread, but I needed a poll, so I gave it its own sub-forum. :)

As for progress today, I added Freefall and a new game by myself named "Get Them!"  The average size per game is now 323 bytes, as there are 10675 bytes total.  If this average size continues, the finished gamepack would be 15527 bytes. ;)

Edit: I should also mention that there are 33 games in it right now. ;D

Edit 2: I forgot to mention the link to the poll: http://ourl.ca/9756

I made 3 games over the past few days. I don't think Reaction will make it into the pack, though  :P (though it could replace Guess the Number)

Reaction and Laser both have a menu that you can get rid of easily.

In Reaction, you are given a number, and you have to push the key corresponding to that number (getKey-wise).
In Laser, you use up and down to avoid the laser(s). Harder level=more lasers to avoid. 2nd activates the shield, and you start flickering (not very good attempt at grayscale :P), but you lose points, and once you reach 0, the shield automatically deactivates. The score is the number in the top left corner.
Avoid is self-explanatory.

EDIT: Many of these games were not specifically created for this game pack. Some of them were just to teach others how to program. So, they might seem somewhat weird. (Like, in Avoid, you can wrap around from top to bottom and vice versa, but not from left to right and right to left.)

Thank you!  By the way, have I ever mentioned how much of a fan of your programs I am?  The code's well written, and you're providing some games for me to use.  Plus, Quasilat is awesome. :D
Of the games you provided before today, Invasion's my favorite.  It's really, really good. ;D

Meishe, where did you learn that binomcdf() trick?  It's pretty obscure; I learned it from Darkerline (the author of Donut Quest)'s now defunct blog. :)

Thanks! Actually, I spend like 2 hours optimizing each game (more like 10 in the case of Gravity, since I did that when I was not quite as good at programming), since it's fun :).

It can be fun, can't it. :D

Oh, I should also mention that when I add it, Meishe's Jump is going to replace the Jump! game I have in there right now. ;)

For Jump? I don't remember but I think I learned it from looking at one of your games you gave me when I was writing my tutorial for basic jumping. Then when I was making the game I just remembered something and did a little research behind both those commands because I couldn't remember which one it was. I'm so far out of good practice right now though that I can't even remember what I did :P

I'm glad this is in "our projects," ztrumpet.  I'm going to put a link to this on the main page
