Command Module Listing


The list below shows most of the cartridges produced for the TI-99 console. I don't assume that this list is complete, or that all information is totally correct. I will be adding to the cartridge and manual graphics as I get them. Click on the manual to get a view of the front cover of the manual, and the TI monitor to see a screen shot.

I have also created a more simple page without graphics that should be printer friendly. To view it go here.

Reviewer: Matthew Hagerty - TIer since 1983

The Editor/Assembler allows you to write assembly language programs on the 99/4A itself. Prior to the E/A, all software for the 99/4A was written on an expensive TI Mini Computer with a 99/4A emulator, and I think Tombstone City was the only (TI produced) software ever written on the 99/4A itself. The E/A includes an editor for writing assembly code (or any text documents really), assembler, linker, loader, and debugger. It also includes a very thick (about 2 inches) reference manual that covers using the cartridge programs, the 9900 instruction set, 99/4A internals such as memory organization, GLP functions, accessing the 9914 VDP, sound programming (9901?), speech synth programming, and example code. It also comes with the full source code to Tombstone City! This was a very kind act on TI's part, and seeing how they wanted to totally control software licensing for the TI, to this day I can't figure out why they included that source code? But I'm sure glad they did! The E/A requires the PEB with a floppy disk and 32k RAM expansion module

Princess and the Frog

PRINCESS AND THE FROG is a one player game.

The object of the game is to gain points by moving your frog past a field of jousting knights, across a moat filled with alligators and snakes (watch out for the alligators—they submerge periodically, and the snakes are slippery), and unite with the princess of the castle. Jumping into one of the castle gates gives you another frog and extra points. If your timing is good and luck is on your side, your frog will kiss the lips of the princess and turn into a prince. Bonus points are gained by mating with the female frog of the moat on the journey to the castle gates.

Your joystick allows the frog to jump in all directions to avoid dangers during the journey, but don’t delay getting to the princess because 60 seconds is all you have.

Rotor Raiders

In ROTOR RAIDERS, you explore the vast uncharted regions of enhanced reality beneath your very homes. Through pipes and drains you wind your way to remove those nasty sewer rats, and clear their footprints from the plumbing. You enter from above; but just when all is going well, the rats show up. First there is one, then two, and more. Every few seconds another comes into the pipes your remote-controlled router tries to clean out. Soon there are four rats. But, as long as there are rats, you cant clear the system. There is just one problem: the rats are just as fast as your remote rotor. To remove them you have to trap them in the dead-end pipes. There you can force them from the maze. Here you must be clever—these rats are not so dumb. Still, you have it made and that Duracent battery flashlight of yours goes out, leaving you in darkness. But with a tap or two, it comes back on, and away you go. As you scrap your way through the sewers of your home town, your rotors get very dull and wear down. In fact, each rotor will only last about thirty seconds, so make it quick.

Reviewer: Matthew Hagerty - TIer since 1983

Tunnels of Doom is my all time favorite TI game! It was the first RPG type game I ever played and I spent many hours questing through the dungeons looking for the King. You can take a party of up to 4 characters on a quest into a dungeon of up to 10 levels, looking for the captured King and his lost Rainbow Orb of Power. The characters in a party can be a fighter, rogue, wizard, or hero. Once you create your party you can stop off at the general store to stock up on arrows or rations before heading down into the depths of the dungeon.

Tunnels of Doom is a very full featured RPG with such things as auto-mapping, first person perspective, many types of monsters, potions, healing fountains, treasure, and character development based on class, experience, level, damage, bonuses, hit points, shield, and armor. Combat is turned-based and allows the use of hand-to-hand and ranged weapons, as well as using spells and potions. There is even a game mode called Pennies and Prizes designed for children (no monsters, weapons, or time limit.) Pennies and Prizes has a 4 level dungeon in which to find 8 prizes as well as pennies along the way.

All around Tunnels of Doom is a great game and you won't be disappointed if you like RPG or fantasy type games.
