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.
The first thing that comes to my mind is the graphics. It's great, for an IOS game. But there's just too much bugs. There are several issues that plagued the PC version, and they've only gotten worse on the IOS. The controls are mediocre at best, but at most times, it's just too sensitive. (And no, lowering the sensitivity does not work.) I usually found myself to be jerked off a mountain, like my hammer had a mind of its own. Carefully placing yourself on things is extremely difficult, which makes many parts of the game almost impossible to get past. That on top of the camera bounce, makes this game extremely harder than it needs to be. (And it was already very difficult.) there's a line between a rage game and a poorly made one, and Getting Over it sits directly in between. There's a lot of good things going on here, but it's a really bumpy ride. I would refrain from buying this if you're a casual gamer. If you really want a challenge, if you want to get so frustrated you want to gorge your eyes out, then go ahead.
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.
I found this game on steam and bought it playing it until eventually I got to the top and even though I was very frustrating I got through it and it was a very good game. However when I decided I was good enough at pc I made the mistake of buying it on mobile. First of all the sensitivity is all over the place. I feel like when I change it nothing happens. Secondly the resolution is just plain garbage. I’m not sure if this is just an apple thing but it is running at like 440p. Lastly the thing that gets on my nerves the most is the lag. I found this extremely frustrating when playing because of the lag. There are like main parts in the game we’re it lags and I usually get past them because I would consider myself pretty good except for the end of the game. I find it almost impossible to beat going up the cell tower and because of how sensitive your hammer is you will find yourself flying off the ice hill when barely moving your finger. All in all I think this game would be 1 star and IS NOT WORRH 5 DOLLARS AT ALL. So there ya go a review on one of the worst mobile games ever.
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.

• 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.
