Alternate Versions

In the Famicom version of Ice Climbers the topi monsters from the NES are blue seals which you can attack. The blue seals were replaced with the Fury white monsters in the NES version. Also the Famicom box art featured a polar bear with a blue seal while the NES box art featured a polar bear. This change for the NES release is likely due to the game depicting animal cruelty to seals. See more »

Great game.
17 January 2002 | by dootussSee all my reviews

Ice Climber was one of the launch titles for the well-known Nintendo Entertainment System which was released in October 1985. In the game, you play as an Eskimo who has to climb up ledges of a mountain to get to the top while avoiding polar bears, icicles, and other kinds of creatures. The whole point of the game was to simply get to the top of the mountain in order to continue on to the next mountain. The game has an intresting concept, and it's a fun game to play. 10/10.
