Attention span: 6/10 Gameplay gets old
Controls: 10/10 Arrow keys
Implementation: 9/10 Vastly better than 83 version
Overall: 7/10 At under 2000 bytes, the game is pretty good.

This game was originally written for the 83, it was ported to the 82 by Ilya Winham. Your goal is simple - to survive. You control a little stick-figure man trying to dodge the falling icicles.

This game is vastly improved over previous versions. It is smaller than the 83 version, and it has a speed changer. The icicles also fall more randomly than before so its not as easy to fall into a pattern. The gameplay is okay, but it does become stale after awhile.

Overall Rating-8/10 Great
Gameplay-8/10 Great
Graphics-7/10 Great
Speed-9/10 Superb
This is a perfect port of the original version of “Avalanche.” In this game, you must dodge the falling ice. It is simple, but still very challenging. The graphics could be improved, but they suffice. “Avalanche” will keep you on your toes, because you constantly have to move to stay alive. The concept of dodging falling objects isn't exactly original, but this game is one of the best. This is a classic game that should be on all calculators. Have Fun, Happy Downloading, and most of all, don’t blink!
