You all were quite busy this month! Let's see all the great work...

  • Basic Basic Revolution Classic - A DDR clone for the TI84+CE: StephenM has started porting Dance Dance Revolution to the CE. Instead of stomping on the calculator though, StephenM has mapped the controls to the arrow keys which are intended to be pressed with fingers.
  • Basic Basic Revolution: The Graphical: StephenM has started porting Dance Dance Revolution to the CE. Wait, didn't I just say that? Well instead of just using the home screen, this version is a full color port on the graph screen!

They've even shared the 3D models they created. Go give it a look!

  • Gimme 5!: A word-guessing game [TI-84 Plus CE]: Captain Calc has improved their Wordle-like game (does anyone still remember Wordle?) by adding a new Rush gameplay mode! Even if it's no longer hip with the kids it's still a really fun game.
  • Illusiat 13: The Final Chapter revival n other series stuff: DJ Omnimaga is back to working on their RPG for the 83+ after a brief musical break. They've updated the save system, significantly reduced the size of the program. Go see the screenshot in the first post!
