After playing a games like .AaAaAA!!! - A Reckless Disregard for Gravity. on my PC, I've been fascinated by games that decide to play around with that sense of vertigo and speed. Mr. Falling by UwinGame is the 3D antithesis to games like Doodle Jump and you'll have to prove your skill at surviving a deadly fall for as long as possible with one of three available cats.

Each cat represents a different difficulty level, adding more speed and hazards to avoid on your trip down, however the tilt controls provide a simple and intuitive way to maneuver around the screen and a transparent reticule helps to keep you aligned for the tighter squeezes. Power-ups also help your survival rate by either providing a temporary slow-down; invulnerability; or a quick-boost followed by hard brake to allow you to recover.

A lot of attention to detail has gone in to the graphics, with models and the camera viewpoint being skewed perfectly to impart a sense of insanely fast speeds, however given the speed at which you travel you'll soon encounter just about every variation of objects you can hit after the first few seconds.

As such, things can get repetitive, especially as the two available modes only differ on when the game ends ('time limit' versus 'single life'), however with so few variables to affect your game it's easy to jump back in and attempt to best your previous score. Mr. Falling is a simple arcade title, but one that has its charms as a time-waster despite the lack of variation.

Why the score of the game is so low? Depending on your review I thought it would be like ''4''=). 
 
Like always, great review.
