About SiCoDe:

SiCoDe is a group of programmers who program for various TI calculators in the TI-BASIC language. For SiCoDe, quality and technical achievement comes as standard, despite the fact that we program in TI-BASIC which has a reputation for poor quality programming. Ever since our first game, Ground Assault, which went on to become hugely successful, SiCoDe has programmed only to the very best standard. So if you're worried about poor-quality games and utilities, don't be!

About TI Graphics Calculators:

This program is designed for a TI Graphics Calculator. Texas Instruments calculators are widely regarded as being one of the best for playing games on. They range from the cheap but low-spec TI-73, through to the "upper school level" TI-82 and TI-83, through to the "advanced upper school" TI-85 and TI-86 and up to the "portable supercomputer"-style TI-89 and TI-92. Games and other programs made by independent voluntary developers such as SiCoDe can be downloaded for free from the major TI archives (, Dimension TI and The TI-Files). Games can either be programmed in TI-BASIC (a language built into the calculator) or Assembly (shorthand "ASM" - a while ago some people found they could run Z80 machine code on a TI-85 calculator and ASM support has been built into TI calcs ever since using a mixture of Z80 and 68K Assembly, depending on the calc). ASM games tend to run much faster and take less memory than TI-BASIC games, being written on a lower level, so they are ideal for graphical programs. However ASM is extremely tricky to program in and can cause damage to your calculator by addressing forbidden areas of memory (causing anything from a crash to permanent damage of your memory). It is very complicated to learn, and even when it is learnt, some programs are much quicker and easier to program in TI-BASIC. Strategy games are one example of this (which may explain the lack of ASM strategy games on the 83).
