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.

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 :-)
