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.
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.
Great game on pc. Terrible on iPhone
I found this game on steam and bought it playing it until eventually I got to the top and even though I was very frustrating I got through it and it was a very good game. However when I decided I was good enough at pc I made the mistake of buying it on mobile. First of all the sensitivity is all over the place. I feel like when I change it nothing happens. Secondly the resolution is just plain garbage. I’m not sure if this is just an apple thing but it is running at like 440p. Lastly the thing that gets on my nerves the most is the lag. I found this extremely frustrating when playing because of the lag. There are like main parts in the game we’re it lags and I usually get past them because I would consider myself pretty good except for the end of the game. I find it almost impossible to beat going up the cell tower and because of how sensitive your hammer is you will find yourself flying off the ice hill when barely moving your finger. All in all I think this game would be 1 star and IS NOT WORRH 5 DOLLARS AT ALL. So there ya go a review on one of the worst mobile games ever.
