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.

Bug fixes & performance improvements
I was probably the kind of person this game was aimed at. I used to scream and occasionally throw things as I lost nearly all my progress on the mountain. I kept going because I refused to let myself be conquered by anything. This game teaches you lots of things about anger and repetition. It was great and and the same time not great to hear Bennet Foddy grate on your failures and give you inspiration to keep going. I’d occasionally spend so long on a particular section Bennet would just tell me how to get past. Very good game and worth the frustration.
This game is real fun but it is SO DARN HARD. A lot of people enjoy a challenge including me but it punches me in the gut every ten seconds. You should totally get it if you can get over things easy. But if you get a high temper when you make a lot of progress then fail, this is not a good game for you. Also the fact that it costs money you should consider if you REALLY want it. But it was a good challenge for me D:, (: & d:
Even though I want to jump off a bridge, cut the pot legged’s head off this is still a great game. Ohhh if I could put my hands on the player, he will be a pie after I’m done.
Goal achieved I officially f🤬cking hate it It’s great. SOMETIMES!
It gets challenging at times, but I don’t really get mad with it at all.
You just wasted my money idiot I was gonna get something else you just made a impossible game for thanks BOO! ):
Worst controls I have ever seen in an app game. Gave me carpal tunnel. No joke. Wish I could have enjoyed the game.
Just DO IT CODE TFUE
This game is great! But you need higher sensitivity to the controls I had it on max and I got nowhere
Bought this with my remaining 5 out of 15 bucks. Regret it 100%. Sensitivity makes it HORRIBLE. Got to The Devil's Chimney or whatever, tried to knock off the orange, found myself flying back over to the tree. I know this game is made to make you want to explode. But I don't care. Still hate it. Oh, and thanks for the dude in a pot, and his sentences that made me feel like I had no part in this society just because this idiot who got stuck in his oversized soup can that I could not get up Mt. NEVERest. Made me want to jump off a cliff, more so than I already wanted to from CONSTANTLY falling off, off, off, again and again! Takes up too much space, sensitivity is horrid, and this game... Yes. EDIT: It’s like 3:40 A.M. and I’m bored so why not edit this. I forgot this review existed until a few minutes ago and then I was of course reminded of the game and Mr. Pot Idiot. I feel like this game has changed lives somewhere in the world but not mine because I don’t have any remaining 15 dollars, oof. So anyways it is now 3:42 A.M. so I should stop. Bye and remember, hit or miss. (I guess Pot Idiot missed, huh?) Ok sorry I had to do that.
Have only had a few go’s at this so far and only near the start but this is a great game. Goes to show that hard work, perseverance and dedication will get you over your obstacles
You can’t beat the game, because at the shopping trolley the game starts uncontrollably lagging until you fall down
This game is good there might be something wrong with me but I don’t find this game rage inducing at all the only thing that I find rage inducing is the controlles are confusing at times but otherwise very good
Sometimes the controls are normal but sometimes the controls are inverted please make there be an option to change the controls All in all very good and challenging game
I just completed the game and it was the worst experience I’ve ever dealt with. The game is awesome and great though. However when I started a new game, every time I put my finger on the screen the hammer would go crazy and start shaking in random directions even though I’m not doing anything. But at least I completed it.
Video games are tangible art forms. They can teach you important lessons; inspire you, punish you, allow you to change who you see the world through or create your own path to decide your own fate. They are games. They are experiences. They are freedom. Getting Over It is not. Getting Over It is a task. Getting Over It is cruel. Getting Over It is one of my favourite games of all time. Keep climbing, start again. Keep climbing, start again. Make lots of progress, keep climbing. Start again. If you are reading this and you are one of the few people to make it to the top, I applaud you. I inspire to be like you. I hate you. Bennett Foddy is the sculptor of this prison. This taunting pile of garbage that is the past. I wanted to review this game to help people make up their mind on what it really is but I can already see that I have done the opposite. If you have not played Getting Over It yet- Do. But I must warn you in full caps lock for the sake of everyone who skim reads App Store reviews: YOU WILL ALMOST CERTAINLY NEVER FINISH Well done game. You win. I lose. And so do you. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 🏳️
It’s not too bad and it’s not to good but I find it enjoyable
I love this game on PC top notch message to the game, and simple but challenging gameplay. That being said though, this game truly isn’t optimised for a Smartphone, the screen feels too zoomed out and it’s very easy to exit out of the application if you’re using an iPhone that doesn’t have a home button. I’d say if you are wanting to give it a go, either get it on PC or make sure you play it on an iPad, as the much bigger screen will make it a much better experience.
This game is unlike any other games, except for the one it was inspired by, “Sexy Hiking”. Although annoying and extremely frustrating, the challenge ALWAYS brings me back for more. I have seen several other games that, once Getting Over It had gained some popularity, came out to try and steal some fame for itself, but this game, the original, always kept the spotlight on itself. Even though it’s idea was taken from a previous game, it still has some originality and you definitely didn’t keep it secret or sell it off as your own. As for the actually game, the narrator gives some interesting thoughts, almost trying to distract you from the stress of not falling. This is great and it really added another element to this game and made it that tad bit better. The unique style of art helped also differentiate this game from its rip-offs, making it considerably easier to recognise it instantaneously. And it doesn’t stop there. It has some secrets and other humorous objects in the game that just make even watching it so amazing. When it’s fun for both the viewer and the player, that’s when you know that you’ve made a great game. Overall, this game has brought something completely different to the spotlight and I hope that you will continue to make mind-blowing games and wish that they can top this one, if that’s even possible. Keep up the good work, - The Critic
Your game is very good and awesome I could play it all day. But I won’t play it anymore until you poot in a check point or something beacause I have had this game for some time now and I still haven’t finshed the bit where you get up where the kid is on the slide because I fall down so many times and have to restart again and I get stuck on something and I try and try again and when I do get past it I fall down somewhere else and I can’t get past it again so fix it or I’m never playing again. But awesome game though:)
This app is pretty much the new angry bird but paid (rightfully so)
How do you think people. Can get over it it’s in possible
When I’m playing and I’m trying to pick myself up, it will throw me when I’m not even doing anything! That’s pretty bad when your on a steep part of the game and you can fall at any second. Other than that, it’s a pretty good game
You should get this game if you have some extra money and a lot of extra time and looking for a challenge
OH IM GOING DOWN THE ROAD FEELING BAAAD OH IM GOING DOWN THE ROAD FEELING BAD BAD BAAD, OH IM GOING DOWN THE ROAD FEELING BAAAD best game ever
This is fun?
This game is cool, exactly the way the pc version is. I already beat it twice haven’t found any glitches yet. no problems with the game. Have to say it is a very easy game, very frustrating... but easy. The first time i beat it it was in two hour and some amount of minutes, the second time I beat it it was 33 minutes. Good game worth the 5 dollars.
It’s a little glitchy on the iPod but if you have a good device this game is amazing, the gameplay can be fun once your used to it and the diologue towards the end is so amazing
I really don’t like this game and I won’t my money back
I don’t know if it’s just me but the end is super laggy that’s the reason I can’t beat it. Good game , just I can’t beat it I’m at end but I can’t do it.I failed you Bennett foddy 😢😭
Really great game. A bit too easy. I was expecting a way harder game after seeing it on YouTube but it’s too easy on mobile unlike pc. Really good and you should buy it
Really addictive game but having a bad graphical bug at the minute hopefully will be fixed
I really enjoyed this game. It’s difficulty is insane but the feeling of getting higher and higher is addictive. I would definitely recommend this game if your that kind of person
Well implemented from the Pc- but every time I try to load into the game after killing the app it loads a black screen and I can hear the sounds but no picture- pls fix.
