Have you ever wondered what the truly notable moment would be for you and your calculator compadre? Have you ever thought that your calculator would change the life of your friends or your or even your ‘geo teacher? This game should be tops on the list of every calc gamer in the world.

Not only does this game bring the idea that such smoothness could be brought to a calculator game, but the thought of a high score table. This brings aggravation and addiction together in one itty bitty package. A must for anyone with serious boredom.

Attention span: 7/10 Simple minds, simple pleasures :).
Controls: 9/10 Easy.
Implementation: 6/10 Lacks features from 86 version.
Overall: 7/10 Many people like this game...

Falldown is one of those tiny (778 bytes) but addictive little games that everyone keeps playing. You endlessly guide a ball through holes in rising floors until you get knocked off the top. I personally have gotten over this game but several friends still spend math class competing for a high score.

The graphics aren't much, only a ball and bricks. Also, the high score only stores the highest point total with no name. However, the lack of features is made up for by it's small size.

The final verdict: if you have space left to fill in your memory, get falldown and kill some time.

What can I say, this is one of those "how long can you last" games.

Controls: 8/10. Very responsive.
Gameplay: 9/10. Simple, addicting. I only wish it had wrap-around so if you went all the way to the right it would put you on the left. Otherwise very nice
Graphics: 6/10. Simple, but fitting for the game.
Overall: 8/10. This game is very addicting. I downloaded it and couldn't put my 83+ down for literally 15 minutes. Strangely very fun and worthwhile.
