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
This game has been the most addictive thing that’s ever happened to me. I find myself playing this game for hours upon hours and every time I fall I don’t get mad because I realize it’s my fault and when I beat it it felt amazing 6/5
Really great port of an already great game, but I’m having an issue reaching the reward. I’m not sure if this is intentional or not for ios, and could be a glitch.
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.
You should probably make a mode that isn’t supposed to teach you a life lesson, and that’s versus
The controls for this game are great on PC compared to this monstrosity. There is no rhyme or reason behind what makes the pick do it’s thing, and I’m pretty much stuck at the Devils Chimney because it is so erratic. And here is my biggest gripe: playing on the iPhone X, the home bar/slider doesn’t ever deactivate so half the time when I do have to do something acrobatic the game pauses and I screw the maneuver up completely. I’m not sure how this made Apple’s picks today, but Jesse, it’s 10% playable compared to its pc counterpart...
Every time you let the guy sit for more than a second your next move most likely will glitch flinging in the worst time and direction sending you back. If I pay for a game it better we’ll be glitch free at least when it comes to character movement. Every time I got higher than ever before the guy would launch himself off the mountain the next time I used the hammer. So dumb don’t buy it!
I don’t like the game.👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬
Last update(?) broke the game for me, all it does now is reach the loading screen before crashing. The game is not writing any crash reports to the cache either.
As a someone who finished this game 3 or 5 times the way the seasons change is breathtaking
I REALLY don’t like this game I don’t recommend it, Only if you like challenges. Can I please get a refund?
Well ported game that runs pretty smooth if you change to 60 FPS mode (on 6s plus btw). Controls can be pretty icky and doesn’t really work as well as pc but still pretty fun, can also be pretty draining on battery. Fun af tho.
This game is fun but it hurts your fingers so much
Hate hate hate hate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is a great game and reaching the top of the mountain was the best feeling I have ever felt on a mobile game. The anger and rage you endure up to that point makes the ending all the better. You should definitely buy this game. It was a little glitchy nearing the top of the mountain but otherwise the controls are fluent and precise. Top notch
I understand what the developer is doing but the game is more punishing and annoying than it is fun. Spend ten minutes working around the unintuitive controls and you lose your entire game's progress from moving your finger at a slightly higher speed. I'm over it.
Something has to change, the home swipe up is getting mixed up in the game
How anyone can get any enjoyment from this is beyond me..I'm fine with it being difficult and also fine with requiring patience to progress but these God awful controls are just ridiculous. Can't get a refund unfortunately but hopefully will save someone else from wasting their money.
Sometimes when I play this game I cannot here the person talking or the music sadly. It is also super hard. But other than that it is good
Made it to the top, but that is no accomplishment. U get very little reward for the rage that burns up inside you. Please, for your own sake, never purchase this game. Thank you.
This game is the hardest game ever
The title should be “Me Getting Over Myself.” This is slightly faulty and rickety mechanics posing as some philosophical journey. If the description didn’t make you roll your eyes, the game will. Two stars for the oddball look of the character, but not the game.
No matter what sensitivity this game hurts your thumb and is completely worthless on your phone. Way easier and just more enjoyable on computer. Your finger to the hammer does not pick up correctly. Waste of $3
I don’t know what this guy is like in person but this game makes me want to punch him for torturing my brain. I think it’s supposed to do that... Five Stars.
Only get if you really wanna throw your phone and have it smash into little pieces then shooting it and finally setting it on fire, fun but F***************CK I hate this game
NOTE: Causes overheating on iPhone X. Not sure about other iPhones, but have seen many complaints about X overheating from resource-intensive games. Once the heat starts, it starts lagging everything including home screen/outside of app & drains battery. None of the online tips worked. Playing in low power mode (background app refresh off, etc) seems to only delay the onset. Only remedy I’ve found so far is holding the phone close to a fan or car AC and manually cooling it off. Don’t think Apple has been willing to comment on it. Amazing game. Frustrating and at times annoying, but fun and well worth the struggle.
This game captures the essence of what it means to be a rage game. The amount of time and effort put forth with little reward is both unsatisfactory and depressing, but it’s sooooooooooo goooooood.
Brought on sale and wished I saved my money... Was fun for the first two mins and that was about it... Cool, I'm a dude in a jug with a hammer trying to climb a mountain... Oh wait just kidding you fall all the way to the floor... Awesome!
GOOD GAME (:
Yes, I absolutely love this frustrating, hard, raged, game. But, it even admitted that it is a better copy of “Sexy Hiking” (look it up on the App Store). I wish you could make it just a little bit easier. Add a different character. And make that character a girl. It’s kind of sexist, saying “oh, only a boy could do this” when many girls could do it. Please take consideration in my suggestions. Thanks! 😘
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.
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.
