In Crazy Climber, you play a guy who wants to get to the top — literally. The object is to guide the climber to the top of four different buildings without falling off. Along the way, there are many obstacles.
In each level of Crazy Climber, you must rely on open windows to make your trek to the top. Windows open and close randomly. If a window closes while you are hanging there, you fall off and lose a life. Players can move up, down, left, or right to avoid closing windows. In certain levels, there is a balloon that players can grab which will pull them up several floors before bursting.
In addition to closing windows, players must also avoid many other falling objects and bad guys. Birds, bird eggs, and bird droppings serve to knock the climber down, as do flower pots, electrical signs and roving gorillas.
Crazy Climber uses a two-joystick control layout. There are no jump buttons or weapons. Joystick one controls the left side of the climber's body. Joystick two controls the climber's right side. Both joysticks used in tandem make the climber move.
Crazy Climber features four buildings. After completing the fourth building, the game begins again with the first building and more obstacles. Crazy Climber stores the initials of the top ten players.
Crazy Climber was the first climbing coin-op game ever developed, predating Donkey Kong and other classic games. ~ Anthony Baize, All Game Guide
