As a someone who finished this game 3 or 5 times the way the seasons change is breathtaking

Little Fun and very frustrating

I REALLY don’t like this game I don’t recommend it, Only if you like challenges. Can I please get a refund?

This game trash

This game is as good as me at fortnite so bad and the controls are trash waste of money


Well It is a good game it‘s just very...hard:) And I also throw my iPhone on the floor twice, and throw my iPhone out of the window once. So...I now have a broken screen iPhone (Yay).

Try it. Seriously

This game is not easy, it is perhaps one of the tougher games you can play. However, it’s amazing, you most likely won’t get far for a while. That’s ok, you don’t learn anything if you complete it quickly. This game almost teaches you not only to get back up, but why you need to get back up. The narrator knows how challenging the task at hand is, and seems almost condescending at first, but as the game progresses you learn he’s on your side. Play this in the spare time you have in the morning, it’s going to frustrate you, but maybe when you get to work and have a large assignment due in a short time frame, you can remember that you already made progress in something harder and less meaningful that morning, so this will be easy. It’s like therapy for IOS. One of the best apps I’ve downloaded

Terrible game, amazing disguise.

I can see what he’s done here, make the worst game possible to make people mad. However even though the point of this game is to make people mad this still doesn’t make it a good game. In fact it is one of the worst platformers of all time. The controls are clunky in the first place on pc and it now takes it to a nonexistent level of control. No sensitivity bar like on pc either. I feel he had the intention of making an ok platformer that was meant to beat; however not having enough money or resources he crapped out this and claimed it was just to make people mad. This does not make it a game anymore more of an interactive experience to teach you some things are just not possible to do, to teach failure which all in all is a good message but do not claim this is a game. Games have a goal for you to beat that experience is supposed to be enjoyable yet sometimes very very hard. With this “game” there is no enjoyable experience there is some pleasure after the pain however you feel like you’ve wasted the most amount of time in your life. You achieved nothing absolutely nothing the whole experience makes you want to go into everything with a negative attitude. And after you beat it you only get more mad at the developers. This man should not have made as much money as he did making the worst game possible and claiming it to teach you something except it doesn’t it really doesn’t. Please don’t waste your money here if you want a beatable game pc is beatable however this is really just not possible and a waste of time. Thank you for reading and Dev if you’re reading this admit the point of making this game. Edit* Then the dev responds acting like he added a feature that actually helps the controls be some what manage able at this point I feel like he's genuinely trolling me taunting the fact he shat this out and made tons of money making some kind of game thats control based yet has some of the worst controls of any mobile game ever I really don’t understand it its like you could care less about the controls because people aren’t going to be able to return the app like you take peoples money and in return give them minimal effort just disgusting honestly. Please if you read this again please please PLEASE put some effort into this not saying all games on the charts required lots of effort but they definitely took more time to make than this money grab. Look man I just feel like you took my money and in return purposely did as much as you could to piss me off.

Very nice

Teaches the player not to rage quit and to just get over it.


I beat in 34 mins

AMAZING! And help is on the way!

I REALLY wanted the steam version! But the iPad version is great! Also I have a solution to the lag.go to settings, find a button with the word “beautiful” on it and press it until you find battery saver! Then go back and you have a non lagging game!

A true masterpiece

It took me over a year to finish the game but it was well worth it. Thank you.

One of the best smartphone games I’ve ever played.

Challenging and satisfying and frustrating all in one. It doesn’t get better than this.

Amazing game that will teach you a lot.

I really loved this game. I’ve been playing since around December with over 25 hours of gameplay. At first this game is really really frustrating and will make you want to quit. That is the great part, it helps you learn a lot about how persevering you are. And if you aren’t normally preserving, it will teach you how to be. Overall, I think this is definitely worth buying and it is one of my favorite games.

Absolute trash

Biggest waste of money on the App Store, literally unplayable on any kind of tablet or touch screen phone. Works okay on the computer but whoever made the IOS version is a complete moron.


The premise is very clever, his comments are fun and moments of the game are very fun. However, the game is poorly designed, with mistakes and annoyances left in place, blown off as artistic statements. Overall, the game is disappointing, not rewarding, and unnecessarily patronizing. It’s not worth your money.

This is a frustrating but peaceful matters

When I was playing this game, it was so frustrating but the style of the game is really good and fascinating details.

Wouldn’t start

Tapped on it after it downloaded wouldn’t start just stayed at loading screen I want a refund


I want my money back. This is literally the most rage inducing game I’ve ever played. I made progress over one month and I was seconds away from winning it and I lost it by one pixel. I’m terribly mad.

Can’t see at all!

THIS is the best rage game EVER but, can’t see. My fingers are toooooo big and cover the hammer guy. PLEASE zoom out screen.

Sensitivity is too high

I’ve played this game both on pc and iPhone and it works fine on those platforms but on iPad for whatever reason the sensitivity is just way too high. Hopefully this gets patched in an update but for now I have to rate it a 3

Add a F****ng analog stick

Your game needs a analog stick I don’t know why anyone would ever buy this game

I hate u, I love u

This game ticks me off so much...but I love it. Best game ever don’t change it!!!


This game is very fun if you are looking for a challenge, but if you’re one of the people that hate not being good at something i don’t suggest you play. Very frustrating at times but lots of fun.

A Great Lesson in Buddhism

You’re climbing steep mountain, using only a hammer of all things, and the tiniest slip could send you tumbling right back to the bottom where you started. Somehow, taking on this admittedly ridiculous uphill challenge, while facing the impermanence of your progress anywhere on the mountain, makes this game truly unique and lovable in a way I was not expecting. Proof, I suppose, that sometimes the struggle itself yields its own rewards! 😁

A different type of frustration

Let me just say this right off the bat: I loved this game—I still do. But I have had several bad experiences with it. To start, basic control problems. Yeah, I get that with a touch screen, it is very hard to perfect, but come ON! I can hang on the edge of, let’s say, a cliff, with no problems, mainly. But when I put my finger down to move the hammer, the shaded circle which represents the path the hammer takes somehow TELEPORTS to anywhere on the screen, so naturally, the hammer goes that way, and FLINGS me off the cliff. This actually happened several times, especially in Orange Hell, and will probably continue to happen until it’s fixed. Also, in a few places, the hammer man (Diogenes?) goes through a period of extreme hypersensitivity, thus making it virtually impossible to safely control him. (Basically, fix the sensitivity! No matter where the dial is set, the game seems to follow its own rules, or rule, which seems to be “prevent the player from winning, no matter what the cost.” (I mean, more than is fair, anyway.)) And yet despite this, I still managed to beat the game. After launching myself off the cell tower and maneuvering through the asteroids, the credits started to roll. You can imagine my relief and excitement. Then, right after the second part of the credits (like, the paragraph “design, script, blah blah blah by Bennett Foddy,” before the song even started), the game crashed, meaning I was kicked out back into my home screen on my device. When I got back on, the game had restarted, at the part where the guy gets out of the cauldron and grabs the hammer. Naturally, one would assume the game thought I had watched the credits and sent me back to the beginning, so no complaints there, but the ONE THING that I wanted to do was SEE THE SECRET at the end of the credits! I have started again (what choice do I have?), and I hope that it doesn’t happen again. If it does, I... Don’t know what I would do. But seriously, Bennett, I hope you had enough patience to read to this part, because you forced every player who bought the game to do the same. Just please, fix the random crashes and sensitivity issues and you won’t hear a negative comment about this game from me ever again, because I love the game. I just hate the mistakes that have been made. So, just update it, Bennett. Thanks for reading this. UPDATE All right, Bennett Foddy. You’ve got some explaining to do. This update was written seconds after I defeated the game again, dealing with the same sh...stuff AGAIN. I thought the crashing was just random bad luck, but right when the credits started rolling, the entire game crashed, AGAIN!! I put a lot of work into the game, and I thought it would pay off, but it just kicked me off before I saw the secret of the game, for a second time. I don’t think I’ll ever take this game seriously again. So sure, the game is unforgiving, but it also responds to touches that never even happened, and at all the milestones in the game, there are episodes of hypersensitivity. I am unbelievably angry right now. You’re probably not even going to read this, because it’s just a speck in the other reviews. But, in the off chance that you’re reading this, I just want to say, for my sake, and anybody like me, fix this, please. I guess I’ll just get it on the PC until then...

I have it for both steam and iOS

Let me just say, the pc version makes this seem so much each than using touch. There are some obstacles that just seem so impossible to do with your finger. Nonetheless, this is one of best frustrating games I’ve ever played and I’m still not over it. 25/50 to go.


I cant refund becuase the app is pending plz help

Just beat the game on an iPhone 6+

I was apprehensive about buying the game on iPhone- out of fear that it would be impossible to complete, but it’s possible(just incredibly difficult) What you need to know is this quote from the game: “frustration is underrated” That’s what this game is about- and, in that sense, it was successful


4 stars cause great game but I can’t tell if the controls were made to purposely mess you up or not

HAte this

I never been so mad in my life I keep falling and feel like screaming and destroying my phone I want you to make its here there’s a wall where I can’t fall because I’m raging hard I deleted the game once and downloaded it again to see if I pass it


First of all I just want to say That I Absolutely love this game. But if you or your child is thinking about buying this game, DONT. The controls are absolute torture on mobile devices, making it actually impossible to complete the game. And a bonus that the horrid controls give is that it will cause you to rage like there is no tommorow. If you want to get this game, GET IT ON PC. It will make the gameplay so much easier and A LOT less stressful. It is worth the extra couple bucks. Just do it, or don’t buy the game. Trust me. ;)

Game breaking awful controls

A fantastic idea for a quirky game. It falls apart quickly when the orientation for the one object you control changes and consistently gets conveniently stuck to objects at random when purposeful placement proves to be haphazard at best.

Ok but 1 thing

Please make an option to put a joystick of the players choice

I never raged in my life

Today I saw youtubers play this monstrosity of a game and I laughed at their pain and suffering until I got this game. The machanics are horrible but on purpose and you get glinted off everywhere you go but it’s not like any other game I’ve played over the years, no this game is physical and real maneuver for a person and it might be frustrating and I absolutely hated it I also loved it it’s awful but I could keep away from playing. It took me a while I raged a lot and finally I made it up the hill and it was the most amazing feeling I ever felt, I felt like i did something incredible and to me I did. So in conclusion this game was hard but rewarding, for me at least.

VERY Frustrating, but VERY Fun

This game is very frustrating because you know you can drop back to the start at any moment in time, and when you do you die a little on the inside. It’s very fun because you know you can get back up and get higher than before. Would recommend if you’re not a soar loser.


This game makes me want to kill myself 5 stars

Lovely, but glitches...

I absolutely love this game from the bottom of my heart, but weird stuff happens. For example, I get frame drops and EXTREMELY high sensitivity when I’m at a lower elevation of the mountain. Hopefully this will get sorted out in the next update, it’s kinda been messing with me knowing that my falls will be harder to recover. Thanks!!

Not ideal for iPhone X

Game runs fine and everything, is difficult, but the gesture controls for closing apps and opening the app switcher makes playing pretty frustrating. I open them both all the time by mistake while I’m trying to swing the pick, which ruins whatever you’re in the middle of. Not really the game’s fault, but another platform is probably the better way to play this.

Worst game ever

F this game I want a refund

So good!

I just want to say is that I just bought this game yesterday and, I felt it was worth the money! The graphics are amazing and I felt extremely satisfied with the updated game. Usually I don’t buy games but this one caught my attention, I vividly remember videos of people playing the game so I thought about giving it a shot! Thank you so much!


Controls are terrible. Don’t waste your money. Also, this ‘Bennet Giddy’ guy seems to think he’s a philosopher, and compares himself to Diogenes. Yeah right. I hope this guy learns something someday. What a hack.

Mistitled game.

The title should be “Me Getting Over Myself.” This is slightly faulty and rickety mechanics posing as some philosophical journey. If the description didn’t make you roll your eyes, the game will. Two stars for the oddball look of the character, but not the game.

Terrible controls

No matter what sensitivity this game hurts your thumb and is completely worthless on your phone. Way easier and just more enjoyable on computer. Your finger to the hammer does not pick up correctly. Waste of $3


I don’t know what this guy is like in person but this game makes me want to punch him for torturing my brain. I think it’s supposed to do that... Five Stars.

Love/HATE relationship

Only get if you really wanna throw your phone and have it smash into little pieces then shooting it and finally setting it on fire, fun but F***************CK I hate this game

Amazing game

NOTE: Causes overheating on iPhone X. Not sure about other iPhones, but have seen many complaints about X overheating from resource-intensive games. Once the heat starts, it starts lagging everything including home screen/outside of app & drains battery. None of the online tips worked. Playing in low power mode (background app refresh off, etc) seems to only delay the onset. Only remedy I’ve found so far is holding the phone close to a fan or car AC and manually cooling it off. Don’t think Apple has been willing to comment on it. Amazing game. Frustrating and at times annoying, but fun and well worth the struggle.


Bought this with my remaining 6 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 captions. Made me want to jump off a cliff. 🙂 This is literally the worse version of that cheap hiking game that was the inspiration of this. Looked up the ending and it's just more of the guy talking. In the end, you'll be deleting it because it takes up too much space. 👎👎🏻👎🏼👎🏽👎🏾👎🏿

Bennett Foddy is a sadist... But I love it

This game captures the essence of what it means to be a rage game. The amount of time and effort put forth with little reward is both unsatisfactory and depressing, but it’s sooooooooooo goooooood.

Trash app

Brought on sale and wished I saved my money... Was fun for the first two mins and that was about it... Cool, I'm a dude in a jug with a hammer trying to climb a mountain... Oh wait just kidding you fall all the way to the floor... Awesome!

Getting Over Two?


Love it, but...

Yes, I absolutely love this frustrating, hard, raged, game. But, it even admitted that it is a better copy of “Sexy Hiking” (look it up on the App Store). I wish you could make it just a little bit easier. Add a different character. And make that character a girl. It’s kind of sexist, saying “oh, only a boy could do this” when many girls could do it. Please take consideration in my suggestions. Thanks! 😘
