Game Overview

Legend of Zelda, "Ganon's Rage" will follow the classic Legend of Zelda storyline. Zelda becomes the harbinger of the evil brought upon Hyrule by Ganon. You play as Link, attempting to stop Ganon from using the triforce to gain absolute power. As you begin the game, Ganon has already turned Hyrule into a land of monsters and evil forces, with strongholds in the five temples of Hyrule. As you travel through Hyrule, you meet the few individuals who Ganon has not turned or killed. They guide you on your route to purge the land of Ganon's evil power. As you are doing this, Ganon is attempting to overthrow the Sacred Realm. He has even locked off the Temple of Time with powerful magic and placed a barrier of evil power blocking the route to the Sacred Realm. Every time you defeat the boss of a temple, your power grows. Once you have finally cleared all temples and their full power is available to you, you will have the power necessary to open the door to the Temple of Time. But there is still that final evil spell blocking your path to the Sacred Realm. Collect the Master Sword from the vestibule, and it will make quick work of that spell. Step on the portal to be warped to Ganon's lair.

Upon arriving in Ganon's lair, you will find that there are a lot more enemies here, and that they take damage a lot less, while you take damage more easily. This is because there is so much evil in the air around you. If you are killed here, you start at the entrance to this final stage. Once you finally reach Ganon, you do battle with him. Defeating him curbs his power enough that Link can use the power of Hyrule's temples to bind Ganon and his magic in the Sacred Realm, creating the Dark World. You can claim victory here, or, if you really want, you can return to the Sage's house at the beginning of the map and he will name you "Hero of Time".

After much anticipation, limited internet capabilities are now available on your TI-calculator, thanks to Kerm Martian, shaun, Jonimus, elfprince, and BrandonW. The only hardware required is your calculator, a USB cable, and your internet-capable computer. This project allows your calculator to chat via IRC (the older version of IM) and to play some CALCnet games with other calculators on the network. Visit the project page at Cemetech: link

Legend of Zelda, "Ganon's Rage"

Coming soon to Blast Programs, by ACagliano, is this organization's first ever attempt at an RPG. This will play in the style of the Game Boy Advance Zelda game, A Link to the Past. In this version, there will be basic magic abilities, fully functional AI, and two swords (the regular sword and the Master sword). There will be a few items, namely the hookshot, longshot, fire tunic, and zora flippers, but I may add more in a later version. There will be a main world map, as well as six dungeons, complete with keys and locked doors, and a boss fight
