Gameplay

Getting Over It with Bernard Foddy is about mountaineering with a difference; the intrepid mountaineer is encased from the waist down in a metal pot, and he has only a hammer with which to make progress up the mountain. With this hammer, players can make him pogo, pole vault, swing and pull himself up the mountain. Unfortunately, the roundness and shininess of the pot mean that getting and keeping a purchase is difficult, and bouncing down the mountain and back to the start is all too real a prospect. To compound the frustration, there is no save function, either.

A Very Novel Concept

The developer has hit on a great concept with Getting Over It with Bernard Foddy; while some games just happen to be frustrating, the developer has turned it into an art form that annoys yet compels players to go back for more.
