FallOver! is a platform game like Mario, but with a difference. In FallOver! the protagonist is a very unbalanced English gentleman.
Over nine levels you have to collect as many coins as you can, an hit the flag at the end. You can fall over three times, after which you have to restart the level. There are no lives, but getting all the coins is a challenge in itself without worrying about dying!
FallOver!'s graphics are basic, but the gentleman looks right, and collision detection is great. It's keyboard controlled, which works fine, though control is quite tricky! As soon as your intrepid hero starts to wobble, it's almost impossible not to fall over.
The soundtrack can get tring after a while, but is saved by the effects, which are hilarious. The English gentleman makes little remarks as he falls or stands up, which is charming and funny. FallOver! is quite short, but it will take a lot of effort to get all 103 coins.
FallOver! is a challenging, humorous platform game that is a great way to fill a few spare minutes.
