    The climbing mechanics are satisfying, the frustration you’ll have to endure on your road to mastery is sweet, and Foddy’s commentary is intelligent, but mouse controls are physically tiring and need getting used to. [01/2018, p.65]

In this game you are a man in a cauldron with a sledgehammer. Your only objective is to climb a mountain. There will be many reviews that give this game a horrible score, but that is because they gave up. I suppose there are two things someone should know when coming into this game. One is that the creator purposefully put a input lag on the hammer to make the game harder, and two is that this game's only objective is to cause you pain. There are several places throughout the mountain that will lead you back to the beginning. Taking these two things into consideration, I still believe that you should try this game. Be warned this game is a challenge, and to overcome it is to feel bliss. Expand

    About 30 seconds of gameplay on YouTube was all I needed to know that this was a game for me. So much sweet suffering.

There's not much to speculate about it, it's a simple yet hard game to master, making you adapt to each situation. Even though it's a good game, it has it's flaws. The difficulty on the game is already enough to have you smashing your keyboard several times, but along with that you have a game that is pretty heavy even though it's simple, the "jumpscare" it has also got me quite angry because you're supposed to understand that what makes you go down are YOUR mistakes, but having that, mouse acceleration and some bad hitboxes at times is incredibly frustrating.
    Also about the achievements, climbing the mountain once and twice are great, but fifty times? Foddy, that's a little over the top and annoying for a completionist.
    Overall it's a good (and incredibly hard) game with some flaws and a good OST.
    PS: That secret ending is quite awesome Bennet, thanks.

    This game broke me, and I will probably never be fixed. At least the game succeeded at it's goal.

    The voice over offers nothing of interest and doesn't provide anything for the game play and is there to just make the creator sound 'smart' when he puts in random quotes and talks about things that make no sense and is completely wrong.

    Save your self the money and play flash games if this is your type of game, it's short, uninteresting and has no replay value.

It's literally the opposite of fun and good gameplay. The only good things about it are the jokes. There is literally no reason to play the game. If you want to climb a mountain, just play Celeste. It's much more fun Expand
