Super Mario on your TI calculator

Super Mario on your TI calculator

I’m probably not alone in saying that I used to code adventure games on my TI-85 when I was younger, but Sam Heald’s Super Mario reproduction is so much cooler:

Super Mario features beautiful graphics courtesy of Bill Nagel, 13 unique enemies, 64 unique background tiles (some with animation), fast scrolling, powerups like growth or flower-power, fireballs, a somewhat-challenging boss, an animated ending scene, and an expansive easy-to-use World editor that can be run on a calculator.

I came across this app on the Brown-eyed Albino’s Blog, where there’s a list of everything you need to get the game up and running on your calculator. There’s also this Youtube post which walks you through installing everything on a TI-84 (screen cap above).
