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.

Climb with a hammer.

Frustrating but not because of the controls


Update: this seems to have been resolved by both the App Store and the developer. Now that I have the game again I am enjoying it and still getting frustrated(this time for the correct reasons and not those below 👍). Thank you for addressing my issues with the game!

I knew getting into this game I would have trouble with the controls so I have no complaints about that. My complaint comes from the following steps: 1) bought the game, for some reason having a harder time doing that than normal, 2) played the game til I had to turn off my phone. When I turned it back on the game wouldn’t open properly. Tried restarting my phone, the game, everything and nothing worked. 3) tried to uninstall and reinstall and now I’m being asked to purchase the game a second time... and that isn’t happening. I paid for it once and will not be paying for it again. If that doesn’t get fixed I will be demanding a refund for not being able to access the game that I purchased.

Weird Bug


This game is super great. Probably one of the hardest games I’ve ever played. But there is a really weird bug/glitch that won’t let me play the game. Any time I open the app the loading screen appears for about 7 seconds. After that the screen changes and looks like the background from where I left off. It’s just that. The character isn’t there. Not even the mountain. It’s just a plain green background. For a minute I thought it was part of the loading screen. But after sliding my finger around the screen I heard the character grunting and his hammer hitting a rock. I moved it around some more and I realized I’m controlling the player, but I can’t see anything. It’s really weird and I hope you can fix it. This game will earn it fifth star once that bug is fixed.

EDIT: The bug is now fixed. Thank you so much for taking time to fix this bug.
