Attention span: 7/10 Simple
Controls: 10/10 Arrow keys
Implementation: 8/10 Fast action, no hiscore initials saved
Overall: 7/10 It is, what it is.

There is not much to say about this game. It is fairly simple, yet pretty addicting. You control a little ball, while the background scrolls trying to force the ball to the top. Your goal is to survive as long as possible.

At 800 bytes, it is hard to critique this game. You can argue that it lacks features, but at the same time you can say that it fits a lot in its little space. A small game is not supposed to have depth or replay value, it is supposed to be a time-killer. That is exactly what FallDown is.

Overall Rating-9/10 Superb
Gameplay-9/10 Superb
Graphics-8/10 Great
Speed-10/10 Outstanding
”Falldown” is a classic TI game that is on most of the calculators I see. Although it is simple, it is very addictive! You simply use the directional keys to guide a falling ball down a series of shelves. The graphics in this game are great. The gameplay is even better! As you progress through the game, the shelves will get closer together and more broken apart, which makes the game gradually more difficult. The high score list allows you to compete with your friends for the highest score. The speed is outstanding and, if anything, too fast. This is a TI classic and should be on everyone's calculators. Have Fun and Happy Downloading!
