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.

Editors' Notes

Climb with a hammer.

Took me 2 weeks on iOS but I FINALLY MADE IT.


I love the supreme difficulty of this game which left me shaking when I finally made it and saw the credits. Excellent, you made me feel like I really earned this achievement.

I actually prefer the iOS version as the touch interface and natural “flicking” the character around with my thumb felt more natural than a mouse.

There are some performance issues I experienced on my slightly older iPad Mini from 2015, and sometimes specifically when jumping into a new area, the frame would freeze and cut to I’ve fallen down again, so this was my only gripe. I closed all apps, turned on airplane mode and rebooted and this helped a little, but please look into these issues for other players!

Also when running on Battery Saver mode, the texture at the top of the mountain, at the base of the tower is a little too small, leaving a gap between radio tower and its base.

LOVED THIS INFURIATING GAME. Must have fallen to the beginning at least 30 times. Managed to avoid that snake though!


The most intentionally difficult game

Great game, looks fine on iPhone5s.
You may not ever complete it, and you will lose hours of progress in seconds, but once you “get over it”, it’s actually sort of therapeutic.

Edit: Recent update: The game loads correctly 1 in every 10 tries, other times it loads a broken map that’s frozen or just goes black screen. Sensitivity has been improved massively making the game playable again, but the cursor still jolts around even when slowly moving the hammer. The graphic options are great and the inclusion of a battery saver option is a nice touch too.
Unfortunately it’s broken for me so, 1 Star.

Edit again:

A masterpiece. A true milestone in gaming history and a real work of art. Thanks Foddy.
