Attention span: 1/10 Do not bother with this game.
Controls: 7/10 Natural controls, but unresponsive.
Implementation: 3/10 Not original, and not very well implemented.
Overall: 3/10 Please look elsewhere.

Avalanch 86 is a game where the player must dodge the icicles. That is all I can possibly tell you about this game that is in the readme of the game. For the two months I have been playing around with this game, I have deducted that there is no point for having this game. I figured out that there is no way to get across the field of icicles that fall from the top of the screen. While I was able to get pretty close to the edge of the screen, there was no point in investing my time in this game. This game lacks absolutely any replay value, since it is very frustrating. Should I have known that there was no point to getting farther into the screen while dodging the icicles, I would have reviewed this game many weeks ago. The only point in getting further into the screen in this game is to make a higher score. But this will be in vain, since the game will not save your high score for your troubles. The graphics are simple as to be expected, and the controls are natural, but seem unresponsive at times. This game does not seem original, as I will soon review a game that is very similar to this one, unfortunately, it is much worse. Oh the horror I must endure with some of these games.

In short, avanlanch, in my opinion, is a very bad game that you do not want. There is no replay value, and the controls are sometimes unresponsive. The graphics are nothing to shout about, and this game doesn't seem very original. There is no point to getting this game unless you like to get frustrated. Although there are three difficulty levels, they are irrelevant as they do not increase your amount of points for the amount of time you are still alive, but they increase your speed and the speed of the falling icicles. This game is not worth you time, so look for something else.
