The most popular calculator this year was the TI-84 Plus CE. To celebrate this, we've compiled a list of the popular games. School just started, you got a few weeks to get settled in to your classes. For those of you that started this last week, may the odds be forever in your favor. When you're passing time between classes, or riding to and from school, we know that you probably have explored games on your calculator. To help you, here is a list of 7 popular games for the TI-84+CE calculator that were released - not updated - this year. I've excluded the entries from the contests we've held, since those may have seen inflated numbers from the publicity. They are still wonderful programs, so check out the topics for the three contests we have wrapped up this year: Contest 18, Contest 19, and the recently finished Contest 20. We are looking forward to more contests this year and in the coming years, spanning calculators and computers, so enjoy these games and hopefully you'll be inspired to start making your own and consequently motivated to participate in future contests! Without further ado, here's our lists and check out the full forum topic to read more about them!

Here's a straight list of the Top 7.

  1. Oiram
  2. Geometry Dash
  3. Color Switch CE
  4. Donkey Kong CE
  5. Boxman CE
Honorable Mentions


There are dozens of other programs that were released this year and there will be more by the end of the year. So keep checking the archives! Graphing calculators is a wonderful way to be introduced into programming, it's always on you and is capable of running programs written on the calculator itself, written in a variant of the BASIC language. You can then go further and branch into ASM or C which will get you ready for programming on computers or mobile devices such as Android or iOS. We've got a wonderful community that will help you with questions about programming your own games or programs on a bunch of platforms. Hopefully we'll see you programs on the next list we do! Now, that you've seen the top 7 programs from this year here are the top 10 programs that were released since the TI-84+CE was released.

    • Forum Topic
    • After much anticipation throughout 2016, Oiram was released at the start of the year. The game is a Mario-style platformer and includes many features and enemies.


  2. Geometry Dash

    • Rating: 10/10
    • If you've played the infamous "Impossible Game" you'll be familiar with Geometry Dash, but to recap the game consists of jumping over dangerous blocks. You are able to import custom levels.


  3. Color Switch CE

    • This game is similar to Flappy Bird where you must keep keep an object afloat and pass through obstacles. In this instance, the obstacles change color and you can only pass through them when they watch the color of your ball. This is an adaptation of the Color Switch game for the Smartphones and it was coded using PT_'s ICE compiler.


  4. Donkey Kong CE

    • The classic Donkey Kong game is faithfully recreated for the TI-84+CE. It was written in C, using the C Toolchains, so be sure those are on your calculator before you play!


  5. Boxman CE

    • Forum Topic
    • Botboy3000 ported his game from the TI-84+SE to the TI-84+CSE and now it's on the TI-84+CE using using the C libraries, so make sure you've added those to your calculator before playing. In this game, boxes are falling from the ceiling and it's your job to get to the top. Be careful not to get squashed! You can only climb one block at a time. The higher you climb the more points you get! Boxes fall faster each level. See how high you can get!


Honorable Mentions:

    • I have yet to play this game but it's the most customizable version of Snake yet! So, don't let the screenshot fool you! Pick up this classic and challenge yourself to some different scenarios.


  • Sqrxz CE

    • Jimmy Mardellís TI-85/86 clone of the PC game ported to the TI-84+CE. Sqrxz is similar to Mario Bros. The goal is to control an ugly bug (a Sqrxz) through a dangerous world filled with traps and enemies such as Blobs, Hedgehogs, Bats and more. Features 5 worlds comprising a total of 16 levels with many puzzles and traps to solve! World Editor is available on Windows separately to build your own worlds. If you played this on your old TI-85 or 86 and still have the levels, this version will play those levels!

  1. Pac-Man

    • The original Pac-Man game, now on your CE! Features smooth graphics and gameplay. If you're looking to learn ASM then you're in luck as the source code is included!


  2. FlappyBird

    • Yes, that flappy bird. The game that got so popular on iOS that the developer removed from the App Store and sparked tons of clones and that's right, it found it's way to a calculator you bring to class. Prepare to be pissed off in record time with this faithful port.

    • If you have a TI-84+CSE, the Color Silver Edition or, the old and original TI-84+SE or TI-83+SE there are flappy bird clones for those! Don't fret. Just click the calculator names to be directed to those programs.


  3. Tetric A (Tetris)

    • Forum Topic
    • Written in assembly and a close port of KermMartians' Tetrizm game for the Casio Prizm, Tetric A is a fast, fun take on the classic arcade game, Tetris. Enjoy five unique modes: Marathon, High Speed, Cascade, Touchdown, and Sadistic. Runs on color-screen TI-84 Plus CE.


  4. 2048

    • The premise of the game is to combine like tiles until you achieve a tile that has a number that is equal to 2048. Press the arrow keys to move all the tiles and combine like tiles, do it carefully!


  5. Portal Returns CE
    • May 22nd, 2015
    • Rating: 10/10
    • Forum TopicEnjoy blasting through space at breakneck speeds and almost being fried, crushed, and insulted all for the hope of cake at the end. With 78 total levels, the fun will probably end at some point. But that is why there is a level editor to make even more mind boggling puzzles. So, good luck, and remember that GLaDOS is always watching... Watching to see if you can find all the hidden buttons...

    • A breakout-like game for the TI-84 Plus CE in color. Includes 44 levels, 9 speeds, 2 difficulty levels/ 6 brick types and 16 brick colors, and 5 types of power ups, including multi-ball. Also supports saving the game and has a high score table.

    • The classic Space Invaders arcade game faithfully recreated and recolored for the TI-84+CE!


  9. Ultimate Pong
    • February 9th, 2016
    • Rating: 10/10
    • This is the more advanced - and complicated - version of the popular game Pong. Although it looks simple, it is very frustrating, and hard to survive! Made in C/ASM and perfect for hours of fun! How long can you survive?


  10. ADVENTUR - A Game About Choice
    • January 24th, 2016
    • Rating: 10/10
    • Forum Topic
    • ADVENTUR is a game originally created in TI-BASIC for the 84+ C Silver Edition. It was then rewritten in AutoHotkey and expanded to have more than five times the original content. Once the author, Hactar, got a TI 84+ CE, he ported the original basic code to his new calculator. And now, he brings to you ADVENTUR Update 4 Preview written in Assembly for the TI 84+ CE! This game was inspired partially by the Stanley Parable. Like the Stanley Parable, it is a game about choice. If you play this game with the sole intention of beating it, you are missing out. Just play through the game and appreciate all the content. Play it multiple times. Have fun. ツ
