KickASM Software was a short-lived assembly programming group for the TI-83, TI-85, TI-86, and TI-92 graphing calculators, and it was made up of staff members from the TI-Files community site. They had several interesting projects under development including Ninja Gaiden, Chrono Trigger, and Punchout, although most of them were never finished. Their released programs included Mega Man, Space Quest, Lunar Lander, PacDash, Rad Racer, Fliptile, and their any-size sprite routines named Spricicle.

It should be noted that none of the programs were released under the KickASM Software banner, but were instead released under the name of the individual programmer or programmers. The programs released by the group members were estimated using the information available on the Internet and the Wayback Machine, and trying to piece everything together given the overlayed timelines of the respective members' years of activity in the TI community and the individual program release dates.
