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

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.

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 :()
