File Description:  This is my new sidescrolling game that is something new and exciting!
The new cool thing this game has you do... Turn your calc 90 degrees clockwise!
The controls are simple there is only movement for now, and there are 4 levels.
the levels are about 8 screens tall and 1 screen wide. You can do multiple air jumps and there is really smoth scrolling that follows your character.

Graphics/Interface: 9/10 ASCII rocks!
Playability/Usability: 9/10 It is pretty staightforward
Replay Value/Reuse Value: 6/10 There are only 4 levels as of now...
Controls/Interface: 8/10 Simple and easy!
Overall Value: 10/10 I still play it in math class!
This is a great BASIC "platformer" for the 83+... Although if you own a 83+SE (or the 84+SE) it runs really fast.

The graphics are ASCII (What you can make on the calc with letters), but ACSII can be good like in this case. There are "animations" for character movement and there is awsome level scrolling.

As for playability, it can't get much better, maybe some enemies or some other interactivity... But for a beta BASIC game it plays like a dream...

Replay Value is where this game falters. Until more levels are made there is only 4, and that gets boring quick.

Controls are easy, the D-Pad does all the work! Expect more controlls in the future!

Overall it is great, with the exeption that the game slows down about halfway in the middle of a level because the levels are huge! I will probably split them into 2 parts in the future...

Cool, fun, and neat!

Graphics/Interface: 9/10 ASCII graphics are fine, there are many character animations, and scrolling is sweet!
Playability/Usability: 8/10 Holding the calc sideways is a bit weird...
Replay Value/Reuse Value: 8/10 Only 4 levels, but definitely could be more in the future.
Controls/Interface: 7/10 Holding the calculator sideways is awkward, and so is pressing "up" for jumping. But not bad.
Overall Value: 10/10 An enjoyable experience in BASIC.
As an old-school gamer, I loved this game. The graphics were good enough, but the scrolling was the best part. Changing the level files are easy, so technically, you can make your own. The gameplay is fun enough, and is more challenging than you might think. Holding the calc sideways is an interesting gimmick, but makes sense considering the programming used. It is awkard, though, and so is pressing left, or "up", to jump. Enter would be nice, you could play with two hands.

Obviously, the BASIC-ness makes this game a bit slow, but not as bad as it could be.

I would most certainly recommend this fine game.
