Favorite calculator game(s)? - Gene - 02-28-2003

Depends on the machine, of course, but some of mine are shown below and they are all on my web page. What are some of your favorite games?

Pinball Wizard - HP67 and HP41
Yahtzee - HP41 (partial to it because I wrote it) :-)
Skunk - HP41 (again, I wrote it)
High Rollers - HP41
Dungeon of Doom - HP41
Wickes' synthetic Hangman - HP41
Synthetic display Star Trek - HP41

which is your favorite? Mine is probably still the Pinball Wizard games.

HP41 Mini-Chess, definitely. it's one of the best HP41 programs I've seen. To fit that into a 41C + 3 memory modules is amazing!

You mean the version on copy protected mag cards,
with precompiled GTO's ?


Re: Favorite calculator game(s)? - Tony Duell - 03-02-2003

No, the version that's in the HP41 Games 2 Solution Book. It's all standard user code, and I scanned in the barcodes which were not 'private'. You
can get it from this site AFAIK.

Re: Favorite calculator game(s)? - Raymond Del Tondo - 03-03-2003


that's a different program.

The one I was thinking of was a real 8x8 chess program with 4 skill levels.
I bought the mag cards set for about DM 50 back then,
and it really worked.
The only flaw I found in that program:
You could move from bottom or top row,
even when there were knights in the next row...
