Super Smash Bros. On Your Calculator?

Yeah, you read that right. Some quirky genius who goes by the name of “Hayleia” programmed a version of Nintendo’s ultra-popular fighting game Super Smash Bros. for the TI-83/84 series of graphing calculators.

The real kicker is that it looks and plays really nice. Well, nicer than you’d expect a calculator game to look. Right now, there’s only a smattering of stages and you can only play as either Fox or Falco, but the game looks extremely promising nonetheless.

I still have one of those devices from my learnin’ years, so I followed the instructions found on this thread and sure enough, there’s Smash Bros. right under my Bowling and Breakout games. If you have a TI-83 or TI-84 take a look at these. We’ll be keeping an eye on the project moving forward.
