A game I made
For a certain kind of person
To hurt them.
• Climb up an enormous mountain with nothing but a hammer and a pot.
• Listen as I make philosophical observations about the problem at hand.
• Between 2 and ∞ hours of agonizing gameplay, depending. The median time to finish for my playtesters was 5 hours, but the mean was closer to ∞.
• Lose all your progress, over and over.
• Feel new types of frustration you didn't know you were capable of.

This Game Changed Me (really)
You know, this game is popular with being one of the most rage inducing games to ever play. However, in my personal opinion, I consider it to be one of the best games I’ve ever played. Not because of story or graphics, but simply because it’s one of those games that had an effect on me after I won. Yes, this game made me mad, but it also taught me some things like patience, being calm, and to have an appreciation for failure. I fell down so many times that I would delete the game occasionally only to download it back because the urge to continue was stronger than my thought to give up. And after nearly two years of playing this game and FINALLY beating it, I can say that it was DEFINITELY worth it. Yeah, the controls are unfamiliar but once you get used to it, it’s only a matter of time. Overall, I love this game, and I love and appreciate the creator, Bennett Foddy, for giving me such a mesmerizing experience. Thank you for making such a fantastic game, and I hope you realize just how much I’ve changed because of this game. I dedicate this review to you, the one who read this far. I give it to you with all my love.
A great game (if you know what you're getting yourself into)
The first thing that comes to my mind is the graphics. It's great, for an IOS game. But there's just too much bugs.
There are several issues that plagued the PC version, and they've only gotten worse on the IOS. The controls are mediocre at best, but at most times, it's just too sensitive. (And no, lowering the sensitivity does not work.) I usually found myself to be jerked off a mountain, like my hammer had a mind of its own. Carefully placing yourself on things is extremely difficult, which makes many parts of the game almost impossible to get past. That on top of the camera bounce, makes this game extremely harder than it needs to be. (And it was already very difficult.) there's a line between a rage game and a poorly made one, and Getting Over it sits directly in between. There's a lot of good things going on here, but it's a really bumpy ride. I would refrain from buying this if you're a casual gamer. If you really want a challenge, if you want to get so frustrated you want to gorge your eyes out, then go ahead.
I’ve never rated a game a 5
I’ve also never written a game review. This game was incredibly frustrating and hard. Took me 22 hrs of gameplay (according to the final splash screen) to finish over a period of about 6 months. I learned a lot about myself and that’s why I’m writing this review. Most games are entertaining/addicting/fun, or whatever; this game is all of those plus a level of frustration that is hard to explain. Overcoming frustration and the beginnings of rage was a start to mastering the ‘game’. The final key for me was to learn to enjoy the journey, especially starting over. Once you realize that you can climb, falling no longer scares you. This ‘game’ helped me to see these things and I understand that this is simply a microcosm of life. I highly recommend this game if you are willing to power through the hard times. Don’t bother if you are impatient and have a low threshold for pain.
