I think the TI Scrabble is impressive for the time and deserves special mention (the slow speed actually goes a long way towards REALLY simulating a human opponent (probably better than any other computer scrabble game on any computer)...

 

But my  top-10 "go-to" games are (in no particular order):

 

Tris (or Tris II)

Tex-Turbo

Mad Marvin

Shamus

Tutankham

Junkman Jr / Jumpman Jr (best game on ANY computer of the era, PERIOD!)

Miner2049er

Qbert

Space Station Pheta

Attack of the Creepers (this should be on everyone's list - it is absolutely outstanding!)

 

And if I might add an 11th (because I DO play it all the time)... Aperture.

I once posted a comment jokingly saying I'd like to see Portal ported to the TI. Imagine my surprise when Ω replied that it was already done!

Not only was it done (an achievement in and of itself), but it was done so well that it is easily as addictive and confounding as the brilliant Valve original (and lets not forget its written in BASIC!!!!)!

Out of curiosity, what's the highest level you've reached in Aperture?

Somewhere around six, maybe seven, I got stumped. Haven't started at level one and played the levels sequentially since then, although I have completed a few random levels past those.

 

As I've said before, I not particularly good at video games (except falling brick games for some reason), but it has never stopped me from loving them anyway.

I had forgotten Perfect Push (have never launched the ship more than once, but man, what an excellent Pengo variant!!).

 

War Zone 2. Good Call! I still shake my head that that one doesn't require an F18A it has such good looking sprites, engaging gameplay and smooth scrolling. It really gives the 4A an original Xevious-like scroller that can compete with similar on any system of the time - and win!
