“Fast Tunnel” is a fun calculator classic. This tunnel game's ease of play and memory consumption easily make up for its lack of features and electricity consumption (too much of this will over-work your calculator's screen pixels). Oh, and a tip. To change the speed of the tunnel movement in Mirage, just press [ON] + [Y=] (fastest), [WINDOW] (slightly faster than normal), [ZOOM] (normal), [TRACE] (slightly slower), or [GRAPH] (slowest).

Graphics: 10/10 (what can you say about a tunnel game?)
Size: 10/10 (very small)
Features: None to speak of, just use the MirageOS features shown in the review
Overall: 9/10 (built-in features might make the program a bit more flashy)

Attention span: 1/10 Boring, no increasing difficulty.
Controls: 5/10 Arrow keys.
Implementation: 3/10 Yep its a tunnel game, and fast.
Overall: 2/10 Playable.

Here is a classic tunnel game that didn't need to be ported to MirageOS.

Your ship is represented by a ^, so I assume the original was just based off the first BASIC version. The left and right arrow keys control the ship while you try to avoid crashing into the walls. The tunnels don't get smaller, so the game goes on forever. If you are interested, there is high score feature.

"Fast Tunnel" gets old "fast" so you get what you are asking for. There are several better tunnel style games out there so don't bother.

“Fast Tunnel” is an excellent game and is very addictive. This game is perfect for those people who like “Falldown” or “Fallup.” It’s almost like the same game, but can be more fun! This is a great game and I highly recommend it to anyone, especially those “Falldown/Fallup” players. It includes a highscore, and is a very original concept as well.

Graphics: 8/10...It is not really necessary to have good graphics.
Gameplay: 10/10...This game is addictive!
Replay Value: 10/10...Beat your highscore!
Size: 10/10...Look for yourself, smaller than most *small* games!
Controls: 10/10…if you know the left and right buttons.
Overall: 9.5/10…There may be some points missing like speed adjustments, but this game is awesome. Check it out!
