This TAS writes a full-fledged clone of the 1985 DOS game Daleks in pure TI-Basic, and then TASes the first level. The first 10 levels will be finished before submission. The code is heavily optimized by exploiting the TI-83's flexible List data type, and unnecessary initialization has been cleaned out accounting for the initial state of the calculator on bootup. I considered using Finance variables for speed vs size code tradeoffs, but the game loop doesn't seem to run faster with them. Basic 8 direction movement uses the number pad, the teleport mechanic is implemented via the sto-> button, and the 1-use Sonic Screwdriver mechanic is used via the Ln button.
