    Getting Over It with Bennet Foddy is a good game. 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,Getting Over It with Bennet Foddy is a good game.

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.

    Getting Over It With Bennet Foddy is a game that completely lives up to its name. During the game, you need to overcome defeat many times, and Bennet Foddy always say something after you fall back to the beginning, which is supposedly to try and make your mood better, but actually making it even worse. In the game, your are a man in a pot without legs. The only way to get to the top ofGetting Over It With Bennet Foddy is a game that completely lives up to its name.

In the game, your are a man in a pot without legs. The only way to get to the top of the mountain is to shake your hammer but it is easy to make mistakes that will make you go back to the beginning. I don't understand the meaning of the game except that it is there to torment you. In conclusion, if you mind is as calm as the Buddah, you will probably enjoy this stupid game and learn to "never give up". If you do not have the heart of the Buddah, then you are just paying for pain. Expand

    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]
