Pretty nice! What's that line of sprites to the complete rigth of the map, though?
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

Great job!  I wish I had an Nspire to try it on, but at least I get to watch the screenie. ;D

A metal wall.  They cannot be destroyed by bombs like everything else.

Just wanted to give a little update on the progress I have made and the things I have planned.

Implemented
Bombs and Gold Bombs
Metal Walls
Spikes

Top Priority
Ladders
Push Blocks
Rewrite Drawing engine for 68k version (should be very easy)

A Little Bit Later
Smooth Scrolling
New Graphics
Implement game engine in 68k version (should be very easy, as I will only have to change the key press tests, but I want to finish it first for the Nspire so I don't change something in one version and forget to change it in the other)

Still deciding if I will add...
Animated Pieces (like the bricks, spikes)
Level Editor/Loading of external levels

I forgot to install CalcCapture when setting up my development environment on this computer, so I can't post a screenshot, but I will try to post one soon.

I am hoping to have this project finished sometime before Jan/Feb of next year.

I really recommend adding external levels. It's really easy (all you do is use a function to read the file into an array) especially since we have directory listing functions now :D

Awesome to see an update :)

External levels would be cool. Smooth scrolling as well. :)

Gonna setup a sub-forum for this soon.

Animated Tiles would be cool if not difficult.  Whatever the case, keep up the good work!  I like where this is going.
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.

This all sounds really cool.  Good luck with your programing. :)  I think that you should make external levels, but animate tiles only if it's not too hard. ;D

After a very long debugging process, I have finished the ladder drawing routine.  Here is a screenshot of the ladders in action:

Note:  For some reason, this screenshot runs much slower than The Game is on calc.  I will try to find out why this is happening soon.

EDIT:  Also, I have not done all of the new graphics yet (that is why the guy turns into a bomb when climbing a ladder and the ladder "disappears when the guy is in front of it. :P)

Nice to see you got it fixed. Btw, are you gonna add sprite masking for the little dude?

New screenshot!

Added:
Ladder Graphics, Sprite Masking
Push Blocks

Again, this screenshot is much slower than the game runs on calc (I still don't know why :()
