Programmer Hayleia has created a Super Smash Bros. game for T1-83/84 calculators, titled Smash Bros. Open. This is the same mastermind who previously brought us Pokemon Topaze to the graphing calculator. Open is currently still under development, but you can still download the latest version and it’s free to play. So far Falcon and Fox are the only playable characters, however Hayleia did state that you can create your own characters as well.

The programmer also explained that the title of the game, “Open”, is simply a play on words. “Those watching the tennis know that “Open” can refer to a competition, which fits a game such as Smash Bros. pretty well. Those using Linux might think of open-source programs.”

Had these games been around back when I was in school, I would have accomplished nothing in class. I imagine that on test day, instead of solving math equations, students would be battling it out across the room.

    There was a guy at my high school in the 90s that could program Super Mario Bros. into TI-82s. The full game. You had to move Mario with your right thumb and jump with your left, though. I wish I knew how he did it. You would give it to him and he would have it programed the next day.
