Attention span: 6/10 I'll keep it on my calculator.
Controls: 5/10 Confusing at start up screen.
Implementation: 8/10 Includes levels of difficulty.
Overall: 7/10 One of the *better* tunnel games.

7g is not just another tunnel game for the 83. Actually, it is the most advanced tunnel game available (except for Phoenix, of course). Unlike the others, your ship is traveling sideways and has to avoid randomly placed "mines".

At game start, you select a level of difficultly from 1-5 and a speed from 1-5. The way of selecting this is confusing since it displays 1<-3->5 somehow suggeseting that you use the arrow keys to change the option, rather that just pressing the number you want on the keypad. Another confusing use of keys is at takeoff, you need to use the forward arrow key to take off from you launch station.

Graphics are good, and add a theme to the game. Well made.

7g is a good game to compete against your friends for a high score, and will use up some mindless time.

“7G” is just like a tunnel racing game, only you go to the right. It has pretty good graphics and is extremely fast. It is almost too fast because you have almost no time to react when you see the mines coming toward you. I don’t think that “7G” is a very addicting game to play, though. It is one of those games that you play for a few times, and then you just quit and delete it.

Graphics - 9/10
Gameplay - 7/10 (Too fast)
Fun Factor - 4/10 (Not very addiciting)
Speed - 10/10 (Amazingly fast!)
Overall - 6/10

”7G” is an extremely fast paced game! The graphics are wonderful, and work perfectly with this type of game. Most of “7G” is comprised of dodging the cave walls with a jet. There are many different difficulty levels, so the game never gets "too easy" or "too hard". With each difficulty level, there are new obstacles. For example, in the hardest difficulty level, there are mines that you have to dodge. Unfortunately, there are some issues this game has: 1) It is too fast to see the mines, 2) Dodging the mines is almost impossible because of the speed, and 3) The cave walls, however, are easily dodged. In other words, if you love fast paced games that force you to act quickly, then you will like this game. However, if you’re like me, then you'll find this game kind of boring at times. Anyways, have fun!
