I first downloaded Stigma because of some of the great things I've heard about it. Their were only two things that make me dislike the game, but unfortunately they are pretty huge. First off, you have to create your own levels, which is space consuming. I wanted to just get on and play. Also, say you make 3 levels, after you finish the 3rd one it displays "Level 4", and no matter what you do it will not clear the screen. I had to take out a battery for it to clear.

Overall, I give it a 5 out of 10, but it would be a 9 out of 10 if the author just fixed that one little problem.

A great game!

Graphics: 10/10

Grayscale graphics that look great on the calc. And this does not slow them down either. The ball sprite moves fast (sometimes too fast), and looks awesome.

Controls: 9/10

Great and interesting controls. It feels like you are pushing a ball over ice when you play this game. It also uses pressure-sensitive controls, so you will sometimes hold the button, and sometimes touch it as soft as you can. The only complaint I have about this is that sometimes it is a little too sensitive and you go skidding off of the edge

Attention Span: 8/10

Great, but needs more levels. There are a ton of levels in this game, but they are all really short. You can beat it easily in one sitting, but you'll want to play it again. Time I had it on my calc: 1 month.

Overall: 9/10

One of the best games out there, hands down. If the controls were tweaked just a bit and external levels were made, this would be a perfect 10.

Stigma is a great game for the calculator written by Ben Ryves. The object of the game is to guide a ball throughout a variety of levels. New to the second edition is the ability to bring in externally created levels.

Stigma has very interesting gameplay, and you're guaranteed to have to restart a level at least once. You have to navigate slippery squares, try and keep the ball from falling off the edge, and more, all while collecting items to score points.

Ben did a great job in coding this game, and it plays with a very smooth, refined feel. This is surely a game you will want to have on your calc, as it is quite addictive.
