A Hilariously Difficult Climb
In Getting Over It, imagine yourself stuck in a cauldron, wielding only a sledgehammer. Your mission? Ascend a surreal, treacherous mountain, dodging precarious platforms, swinging pendulums, and treacherous slopes. That's the essence of Getting Over It, a game that thrives on its infamously challenging gameplay.
Simple Controls, Complex Mastery
The controls are deceptively simple: you move the mouse to swing the hammer, and the protagonist follows its momentum. Sounds easy, right? Think again! The lack of direct control forces you to rely on physics and momentum to navigate the environment, making each movement a calculated risk. One wrong swing, and you'll plummet down, starting all over again.
Beyond the Rage: Philosophical Undertones
But getting over it is more than just a rage game. Woven into the gameplay is a philosophical commentary delivered through the protagonist's inner monologue. He muses on themes like perseverance, failure, and the nature of progress, adding depth and meaning to the seemingly absurd challenge.
Is It for You?
If you're looking for a challenging and thought-provoking experience, Getting Over It is definitely worth a try. Just be prepared for some frustration (and maybe some laughs). Here are some additional things to keep in mind:
Available on multiple platforms: PC, Mac, Linux, Android, and iOS.
Relatively short, but incredibly tough: Expect to spend a lot of time restarting and trying again.
No save system: You start from the beginning every time you die.
Rated T for Teen: Contains some strong language and crude humor.
