We've been through this excercise many times before, but this time I would like to get some evidence-based inspiration for my next project.

 

Round 1: post all titles you would like to see converted to the TI-99/4A.

 

Round 2: a poll to rank the titles submitted during round 1.

 

Round 3: development of ?

 

Disclaimer: blah, blah, blah...  :)

 

Let round 1 begin.

All titles? Hmmm...

- Gyruss (arcade, not NES)
- Galaga
- Afterburner
- Thunder Force III
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles the Arcade Game
- Super Mario Bros 3
- Symphony of the Night

I know that not a lot on that list is easy. I know because I've looked into them all. ;)

I don't want you to lose focus on Tilda, but I agree Metroid would be amazing! I'd like to see TImpest also.

Let me preface by saying, a few on this list won't be known by most folks.... they are extremely important to me though, and I hope you will give them an honest "looking in to".


Faxanadu (NES)
Lemmings (Macintosh version)
Dungeons of Daggorath (CoCo)
The Bard's Tale (Apple II)
Final Fantasy (NES)
Turbo Outrun (Arcade)
Tempest (Arcade)
Christmas Carol (Intellivision homebrew)
Stay Frosty/Stay Frosty 2 (2600 homebrew)


Thanks. :)

Space Harrier, even understanding the limitations. 

 

I mean, it was ported to the Sharp X1, Speccy and Amstrad CPC, and Space Harrier 2 received an MSX1 port, so we're not talking about a fool's errand. 

 

Just one which has to work within constraints.  Same as Buck Rogers did (not just on TI99, but everywhere else).

Some favorite Spectrum games I'd love to see on the TI:

 

The Hobbit (with graphics).

 

Timegate

 

Ant Attack

 

Knightlore

 

Elite

 

And beyond the Spectrum catalog:

But basically I'm happy that you are developing anything for the TI!
