Implementation: 10/10 Nice graphics and grayscale
Overall: 8/10 A very good game that will get old.
FallDown Forever v2.0 is a game where the point is to steer a ball around bricks as the ball endlessly falls down. Your main objective is not to let the ball hit the top of the screen. If you hit a brick, it will push you upward until you can steer around it.

What's new in 2.0? Well, there is now the ability to play against a human opponent via the link cable. Also, the backgrounds are different and the gameplay is a bit smoother. However, much of the game remains the same. There is a five name hi-score saver, a teacher key and five speeds. The keys in this game are very easy to understand and the teacher key is great for when you want to save a game. No, it won't save your progress, but it will turn off the calculator. The graphics a very nice and in grayscale too :)

Overall, this game has great gameplay and great graphics as well. I recommend it for your calculator except for the fact that the same ball constantly falling down will get very tiresome after a while.

An excellent game that's easy to pick up and play. This should be on your TI-86.

The random block placement makes this game good for a quick challenge. The ball is just falling along nicely you think, and then BAM, game over. You can count on a level not lasting for more than about 5 minutes at the most, making it appealing to kill some time at the end of lectures or during breaks.

The grayscale graphics show clearly on the screen, given the hardware LCD limitations. Keeps track of the top five high scores, which is also a good thing.
