Game Details

As the crazy climber, you must climb up the four 200-story Nichibutsu buildings, one at a time. While you climb, you must be careful to avoid falling flowerpots, bird droppings, wrenches, and a gorilla who tries to knock you off the building. You score points for each step you move up, starting at 100 points per step for the first building up to 250 points per step for the fourth. At the end of each building, you can grab onto a helicopter for bonus points.

This game was distributed in America by Taito.

***** by madmatt7. Comment: "Superbly different and enjoyable. The game also proved to be a very good workout. After conquering 3 buildings or so, your hands and wrists felt like they've climbed a skyscraper." 2002-09-18 17:20:12Z
