Attention span: 5/10 Play back and forth w/ a friend!
Controls: 9/10 < and > controls. Easy as it gets.
Implementation: 7/10 Simple and fun.
Overall: 7/10 Very challenging but gets old.

FallUp is an odd twist on FallDown, where the only difference is that you fall....up......instead of down. Though the title is a bit of an oxymoron, this game is very good.

You play as a circle with an X through it. You are automatically falling up (?) and you have no control over the speed except for on the main menu (You can't go faster or slower in mid-game).

The challenge in this game comes from the blocks of random lengths that block your path. There can be, I believe, 1-4 sections in a row. However, there are spaces that your circled X can pass through. You must zoom through the opening and then prepare for the next line.

The objective is to get as high as possible before you are crushed between a block and the bottom of the screen. I think it goes on forever, since I haven't managed to make it that far. :)

A Tip: Watch out for the lines that fill up the whole row except for a small opening on either side. These are killer.

Overall Rating-9/10 Superb
----------------------------
Gameplay-9/10 Superb
Graphics-8/10 Great
Speed-10/10 Outstanding
-----------------------------
NOTE: "Fallup", in my opinion is repetitive (unless you like the ball going upwards instead of down :) ), but none the less, I will give it an open-minded review.

Although it is simple, "Fallup" is very addictive! You simply use the directional keys to guide a falling ball up a series of shelves. The graphics in this game are great. The gameplay is even better! As you progress through the game, the shelves will get closer together and more broken apart, which makes the game gradually more difficult. The high score list allows you to compete with your friends for the highest score. The speed is outstanding and, if anything, too fast. Although this idea is not original the game is great in all other aspects. Have Fun and Happy Downloading!
