File Name :: Staxorz
Author :: Harrierfalcon
Category :: Ti-83plus Basic Games
Screenshot ::
Description ::
Staxorz is a simple, fast, one-button game of timing and skill. Turn your calculator sideways and stack those blocks up as high as you can!

No, I didn't turn the screenshot sideways. Did you want to try to read sideways?

If anyone beats Mark or Xan, let me know. Admittedly I usually get at least 100 more points than I did in the screenshot, mainly because playing on an actual calculator is a lot easier than it sounds.

Very nice game.

What did you do, play for some 30 minutes straight or something? I knew it was mildly fun, but...lol, thanks for playing! :D

I couldn't beat Xan for the longest time. Then I somehow got 633.. -shrug-

Haha no, once you realize how to get the 1st (the longest) stack everytime, the score just racks up. I went through the whole first screen without missing 1 bloc...

Making the speed random would also make it more difficult. Or you could alternate starting the stack from one side or the other.

my code had that in there but the grid was to small to make it have much of a effect.

OK...after a ridiculously long period of down-time, I've added a few things.

-- Keypresses made before the next row being drawn are not registered anymore.
-- The speed of the blocks starts out slower, but then gradually (and noticeably) get faster. Every time you make two perfect places it gets faster; at least until the calculator can't go any faster. It did this before but it's really hard to notice.
-- The blocks now appear on a random side Razz. I suggest resetting your high score so you don't cheat yourself, because this makes it a significantly large amount harder.

I have it all done, just my calculator 1) won't appear through TI-Connect because of a few apps I have and 2) MSD8x doesn't like the power level of my rechargeable batteries. I should have this in sometime by tonight Very Happy.

My high score from testing it just now: 1200. Admittedly, I'm using Pindur-TI, but I'm not sure if that makes things easier or harder.
