Description: Freeze climbing puts you into a surreal frozen dreamscape, where there’s only one way to go: up. You’re just a head and some hands, so to get around you’ll need to climb. Freeze Climbing uses a novel locomotion system inspired by rock climbing. You must use your hands to pull yourself up and throw yourself across gaps. WARNING: This method of movement can cause severe discomfort in some users, some anti-sickness settings are implemented, however, user discretion is advised.
Review: Freeze Climbing is pretty much the budget version of ‘The Climb’ both in content quality and quantity. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t worth a look, in fact, anyone who enjoyed playing games like The Climb will enjoy this. It’s the little things you notice more with this game like the controls and the surface area not being quite as responsive as you might like, especially after a big jump. I would say it is well worth the £0.79 asking price but do remember that you are only paying that, so shouldn’t expect miracles.
