You control Climber, who is trying to get to the top of a 25 step fortress. He has been given special boots that make him jump high and also an armour to break the ceilings. Each time you make a climb the number of steps reduces and once you clear the phase, you move on to the next phase. On the way up you have to watch out for Blockman, who is trying to stop you (He also builds floors) and Eyerom, a bird like creature. Also watch out for thorny plants. After every 5 phases, a monster will appear at the top of the fortress. While the monster is randomly moving up and down. Your object is to stab the monster. Scary eh?
There is no Game B.
Maximum score is 999 and a maximum number of phases is 99.If you reach 300 points, a fanfare sounds and all misses are erased.
Cheats and tricks:
For those who are confident of their skill can jump straight away to Level 6
by holding the JUMP button while pressing down the Game key and then releasing
it. If you wish to play the game without sounds, press the left and down button simultaneously
and while keeping them pressed, push the Game key.
When Climber goes up a step, 1 point is added. When he jumps and is caught by the bonus bird, 20 points are added. When a monster is defeated, 30 points are added.
When the Climber bumps into Blockman, hits Eyerom during jump or falls off the floor, one miss is scored. Climber will also drop 7 floors, where he has to start from there. Three misses and the game ends.
If you hold in the Game key the highest previous score will be displayed. If the unit is left as it is after game is over, time display will appear in about five minutes. A game is not interrupted even if TIME key or other game keys are depressed during game playing. Pressing ACL switch or removing batteries erases high score from memory.
Issue Differences (click to enlarge pictures)
The table will show how to tell the different Issues that were made:
The battery covers seem to have a number on the back, but they seem to vary a lot and I won't even speculate what the difference is.
