Attention span: 8/10 I get frustrated by not being able to see well.
Controls: 10/10 You can change them to whatever you want.
Implementation: 10/10 An absolutely great all-around job.
Overall: 9/10 This is a game I would play when I'm bored.

In Vertigo, you are a ball (a marble maybe?) and you must make your way around on a 3-D grid. Unless you move the marble, the marble will go with the flow of the landscape. If the marble falls off, you get to try the level again. The object is to reach the gem in each level, and thus proceed to the next level. The game allows two different modes of play: practice mode, with unlimited lives, and challenge mode, where you have a limited number of lives to complete all of the levels in the set. This game comes for the 82, 83, 85, and 86, with grayscale on the 85 and 86. Since the author, Matt Shepcar, fixed the acceleration issue, I can't really find much that's wrong with the game. My one complaint is that, even with grayscale, you still can't see well enough to control the marble properly. Other than that, it seems pretty good. I haven't actually tested the 82, 83, and 85 versions so there may be a bug I'm not aware of.
