Attention span: 9/10 The multiple difficulties add to replay value on an already great game
Controls: 10/10 The controls are simple: left and right
Implementation: 9/10 The game is done better than versions of this game on other calcs because of the added features.
Overall: 9/10 Great game, can't wait to see the link play if it gets put in

FallDown is an exciting game in which the player tries to navigate a ball in between bricks. During the game, rows of bricks with spaces in some spots move up the screen. The object is to steer the ball throught the holes to avoid being smashed against the top of the screen. The TI-89 version of FallDown also has power-ups that you get is you land on certain symbols. The lightning bolt, for example, lets you move very quickly across the screen. This is very hepful to get if the only opening in the bricks is at the other side of the screen.

FallDown is a very well done program. It has several levels of difficulty, which add to replay value, and it has seperate high score tables for each difficulty. One drawback is that the documentation included doesn't explain anything about the power-ups, so it is a bit confusing at first. The only other drawback is that sometimes there is only one opening in the bricks at one side of the screen, and on the next row the only opening is on the other. The author write in the readme that they plan to add link-play at some point, which would make the game even better.
