Anyone have any favorites for TI-99 games?

 

Was there ever a Berzerk-style game on that machine?

From the classic cartridge releases -Alpiner,TI Invaders, Tunnels of Doom, Parsec,Super Demon Attack, Hunt the Wumpus, Miner 2049er, Bigfoot, Burgertime, Q*Bert, Frogger, Popeye, Donkey Kong.

 

From some of the newer releases-Pitfall, Road Hunter, Scramble, Titanium, Neverlander, Mr Chin.

 

Don't recall a Berzerk style game though.

I always considered Shamus to be kind of Berzerk like. Unless there's a clone on disk, closest thing we have to it that I'm aware of anyway.

Robotron 2084 is also available--though you have to get someone to burn you the ROM or run it in one of the emulators.

The closest thing to Berzerk on the TI is Shamus. Bezerk was one of my favorite games. I would LOVE to see a port of it to the TI.

In addition to the above mentioned titles, I'd add Defender, Moon Mine, and Jungle Hunt.

I absolutely loved Blasto on the TI-99. Definitely a must have.

Oh yeah. Love this machine and most of the games. Didn't answer the question before, but here are most of my favorite cartridges:

 

Adventure - ANY Adventure game, Alpiner, Bigfoot, Blasto, Buck Rogers, Burgertime, Car Wars, Centipede, Chisholm Trail, Congo Bongo, Defender, Dig Dug, Donkey Kong, Frogger, Hen Pecked (still has its charms as buggy as it is), Hopper, Hustle, Jawbreaker II, Jungle Hunt, M*A*S*H, Meteor Belt, Miner 2049'er, Moon Patrol, Moonsweeper, Ms. Pac-Man, Munchman, Munchmobile, Pac-Man, Parsec, Pole Position, Popeye, Q*Bert, Slymoids, Star Trek, Super Demon Attack, TI Invaders, Tombstone City, Tunnels of Doom.

 

...and then there's Road Hunter and TI Scramble! :love:

 

Haven't played Mr. Chin, Neverlander or Titanium yet. Will have to check them out!

 

BTW: Whatever became of the Tutankham homebrew? Last I read, the author pulled his work in progress. Is this still being developed or was finished? Cart and/or .bin release yet?

I love Never-lander. It's prolly the game I play the most on my TI994/a. I also like Barrage, It's a Missile Command clone.

I just put it on my list. Guess I'm looking at 30+ active game projects right now. :|

From some of the newer releases: "Mad Marvin's Greate Escape", also a fun game if you ask me ;)

I see Tutankham as a long-time project. Unfortunately work on it has stalled for quite some time.

The project is not dead though, but not seeing a release in the next year. Too much other stuff going on.

If released, it will be a cartridge that runs on the unexpanded TI and will release the .bin as well (same as I did with Pitfall).

Oooh! Awesome.

 

And I know the Danes are adept programmers, judging from their amazing MegaDemo competition entries over the years. ;-) Must be something in the water over there....

FLAPPYBIRD for the TI-99/4A << HERE >>

The Great Dane had better slow down-don't want him burning himself out before the truly great work is done-Elite, Knight Lore, Bruce Lee, Atic Atac, The Eidolon, Rescue on Fractalus, Mercenary, The entire Infocom and Level 9 back catalogue, hint, hint, hint!, actually I'm pretty sure he has already finished half of these since yesterday ;-)

Not to hijack the thread but does anyone know if Munchman II has made it on to a DSK that I can make a real floppy of?

Is that a ZIP or should I just get rid of the .ZIP extension cause it is a DSK?

I figured out it was a DSK :P

 

Thanks again. I like Munch Man II, but I think the 1st one was a better game.
