Ascent

by monkeyScience - Jam Entry

Your friend has just perished in the bitter cold. You must continue this treacherous expedition alone.

Climb to the top of the mountain using the arrow keys to move and spacebar to attach your safety line to the marked points in the mountain-side. If your stamina drops too low, you are apt to slip and fall. When dangling from the safety line, press up repeatedly to climb to climb up the rope and regain your footing. Be careful not to stress the rope the attachments may come undone!

Strange, there was no http:// part at all, I've since added it...

Game looks great. I had some trouble navigating the slope - wasn't certain which parts would make me fall and which would be stable. Nice atmosphere.

Agreed, great atmosphere!

The quotes are a nice touch as well.

Was not able to play on windows, as the mono DLL couldn't be found. Was able to play the web version, though. Very atmospheric, but not much depth to the gameplay, and the mechanics didn't really have much depth. The audio was excellent, though.

Loved the audio and graphics. At first I just tapped up, because I thought thats what I was supposed to do, and I made it to the top quickly and with tons of stamina. Once I realized that I was supposed to hold up, then I started having stamina issues and had to use my rope. It became a lot more interesting and fun then.

Cool atmosphere and use of sound! The first time I played I just went straight up and didn't even use the rope. That part wasn't very clear. On the second time though I tried to use it, and the game made a lot more sense. Sweet!

I did a sweet swinging move once, which was quite fun, but I can't make it to the top before hypoxia sets in. Maybe I should have worn a different color than white though?

Getting to the top seemed a little anticlimactic, but the core game idea and the implementation was very well done.
