Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy is a punishing climbing game, a homage to Jazzuo's 2002 B-Game classic 'Sexy Hiking'. You move the hammer with the mouse, and that's all there is. With practice, you'll be able to jump, swing, climb and fly. Great mysteries and a wonderful reward await the master hikers who reach the top of the mountain.
To quote Jazzuo himself: "The hiking action is very similar to way you would do it in real life, remember that and you will do well".

It's more entertaining to appreciate this the more you understand the cauldron, the man inside it, the lever-hammer he holds and the spacial conception of the architecture around these three "things" to interact with.
Because you cannot die, every state and mean of victory and failure becomes a discovery of its own, and something to contemplate (and move on). That's what this platformer has that makes it stand up for me.
