Unlike Matt M, I actually think this game is very addicting. I've spent hours of time playing this game. You have to scroll around and collect the dots as the Amidars come down back and forth at you. Every once in a while a power up will come up and give you extra points. One feature--well, not exactly a feature, but close enough--is that you're given a certain amount of "jumps". However, rather than you jumping over the enemy, they jump over you. But you have to be careful, because you only have a limited number of jumps. Also, it really does have a high replay value. The scoring system is set up in such a way that you don't necessarily just rack up all your points by zooming through the levels, you have to take your time and gain them as you go, collecting the power-ups. And about the graphics, I've never found any problem with them. They serve their purpose and they serve it well.

In contrast to the previous review, I'd have to give this game a 9 or 10; itÂ’s very creative. Check it out.

"Amidar" is a very plain game. This isn't very flashy. This is very exciting. This is just a game that will waste your time for awhile.

The graphics are simple. The title screen, "game over" screen, and in-game graphics are not very good. They serve the purpose of the game, but are not very pleasing to the eye. I have no idea what the heck you're character is supposed to be, or what the enemies are.

"Amidar" is fairly playable. It doesn't take much explanation to figure out what your goal is in the game. You need to eat up all of the dots without being hit by a...umm...whatever those things are. This is kind of like a "Pac-Man" on medicine. "Amidar" is a pretty easy game to play . . . you'll just get so bored that you'll eventually throw yourself to the enemies just to stop the game! :)

After playing "Amidar" a few times you may be tempted to play even more. However, I feel that this game is a waste of memory. I wouldn't recommend keeping it on your calc longer than a week or two.

The controls are easy to use. All you'll need are the arrow keys. This, however, fails to make up for the lack of actual game . . .

I would not recommend "Amidar". "Amidar" gets a 4/10. Fun times...
