What's everyone's favorite TI game?  Could be cartridge, disk, cassette  :)

 

Right now I've been hopping between Slymoids, Burgertime, Alpiner, and Voodoo Castle/The Count.  

 

My wife likes Alpiner because the female voice makes fun of you.

Barrage, Tunnels of Doom, and Infocom adventures.   For a good brain teaser, Diskassembler and any poorly written program larger than 8k will suffice. ;)

Defender immediately sprang to mind, followed closely by TI Invaders and Munchman. There are a bunch of good ones, though.

Munchman, TI Runner, Tunnels of Doom, Scott Adams Adventure series.  I used to play the hell out of one.  I think it was called Tapper.  You served beers!

if I am recalling correctly there was.  It was years ago,  I'll have to check my inventory to see if I can find it.  But I am almost dead positive the answer is YES.

 

Of course I am getting older, so maybe I am confusing another game system.  If I find it, i'll post it.

Cool, please do! Tapper is one of my favorite games, so would be nice if a decent port exists for the TI. :love:

Parsec and Alpiner. Those were 'show off' games back in the day. My buddies with their Zx Spectrums were in awe of the graphics and speech.

Favorite TI games, hmm...

 

Freddy, The Mine, Backsteine, Tunnels of Doom, Parsec, Slymoids and Fathom.

 

I spend more time writing games on the TI than playing them...

Lately I've been playing a lot of this home brew where you have to rescue this fellow whom seems to have been abducted by this other quite evil fellow. Apparently it's a game involving MoJo and newsletters and alien planets and bricklaying. I'm not wanting to Make any Waves with this answer (I'm O.C.T.) so I'll just wrap it up by saying I also love the Atari classics: Defender, PacMan, Centipede etc. Who dropped the MoJo? I'll get it!

... Freddy

 

Freddy... yeah that is a cool game, BITD it was one of those 'show off games' that someone talked about.  What blew me away was when Tursi performed some of his 'digital-awesomeness' on it and turned it into an image for the FlashROM 99.  You can check out his post,
