Welcome to our 40th Squad Challenge! Ice Climber is one of the earliest releases for the NES and is a fun and interesting climbing game. I've always enjoyed the early NES games for their simplicity. We're going with a mellow game during our site upgrade to keep things easy. Enjoy!

TIME TO BREAK THE ICE :nintendo_mario_freezie:

(Get it? Waka Waka!) 

I've been pretty busy lately, which is why I never got around to the previous challenge, but since I already got this on my 3DS (thanks to the Ambassador Program), I was able to give it a go.

I like the characters, but the game itself is not really my cup 'o joe. Still, I may give this another go later on.

Same here.  

 

The wii is great for NES emulation, isn't it?  SNES too, but you need a gamecube controller for that.

The only thing I use the wii for is emulation. I use this controller for everything. I do use a Gamecube controller when I want to emulate N64 games.

You should pick up an SNES classic controller meant for the SNES mini. They work on a modded Wii also I believe.

I might submit a score for this... if my daughter forces me to play it. I HATE this game... the jumping mechanics and where/how the characters land drives me nuts! Its like they have boat anchors in their asses! For whatever reason though, my daughter loves this game! I think partly because she thinks its fun, but the other part is probably how frustrated I get whenever I play this game :-)

Submitting my score before I forget, and it probably will be my final score for the contest. I tried putting together another run this past Sunday, and I ended up rage quitting. I understand this game a bit better now, but I still hate it!

My daughter's HS is below; she is going to keep trying to improve :-)
