Falling Forever Stickman Game Review
January 21, 2012
By Maxwell J. Provo
Falling Forever gives you one simple goal: Latch on to the bubbles and do not let go! Of course, such simple goals are never truly simple. It takes some practice to get good at this game. Even though Falling Forever has a simple concept, it is by no means the easiest game on the site. It provides a true challenge that you would not expect to see on your first glance at this game.
The game screen is a rectangle. At the bottom of the screen there is a laser beam. Large, dirty bubbles come up from below the beam. Stickman Jones enters from the top of the screen from a small port. Your goal is to have him latch onto the bubbles and to keep him alive for as long as possible.
Moving about the screen is easy. Simply use the arrow keys (or WSAD keys) to direct Stickman Jones to the bubble of your choice. It is best to latch onto ones that are high up on the screen. That way, when the bubble bursts (which it does after a few seconds of latching on) Stickman Jones can have more opportunities to grasp another bubble as it comes up from below.
Falling Forever awards points on a time-survived basis. The longer you keep Stickman Jones alive, the more points you get. It is hard to last more than five seconds in this game and I would be supremely impressed if I saw someone last more than ten seconds! I struggle to recall, though I believe my personal record was 4.96 seconds. But hey, that is close to five, is it not?
Falling Forever is not a game full of bosses, goals, and various levels and stages. It issues a quick and dirty challenge: Survive for as long as possible. Keep that in mind and you will have fun. Come in with expectations too high and they will shatter. Keep it simple, stupid.
