Look before you leap
If you enjoy a challenge, then look no further, as this title is one of the most challenging games available. Just don’t take your failure in-game too harshly.
One step at a time
Get ready to rage when you are playing this game, because playing it may physically want you to break your computer.
Notorious for its difficulty and high levels of rage quitting, Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy is a 2D side-scrolling game where your goal is to reach the other side of the map. The terrain is littered with steep slopes, cliffs, and other obstacles that may prove too difficult to surpass.
You play by moving a hammer with your cursor as you drag and launch yourself along, climbing over trees and canyons. Beware! The controls are awkward to use, and you may soon find yourself at the bottom of a cliff you struggled to climb for over twenty minutes.
The game can be especially frustrating to try and play, let alone complete. There are no checkpoints, and you log in where you left off. This means that when you fail, you could be stuck trying to get past an obstacle that was nearly impossible to get past. You risk losing all your progress with every movement.
What makes up for all your failures is the narration, which is full of sarcastic and hilarious quotes that keep you going whenever you fail. At the end of the game, you’ll find a special reward. That is, if you’re able to reach the end game at all. Either way, you’ll either find this challenge fun or utterly annoying as you’ll fail very often.
Where can you run this program?
This game is available for the latest versions of Mac, Windows, and Linux. It is also available on Android and Apple devices.
Is there a better alternative?
No, Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy is a unique game that challenges you to complete it, though you’ll fail many times trying to do so. One of the previous popular challenging games is Flappy Bird.
This game will annoy you, frustrate you and make you rage quit. If you’re up for a challenge, then you may enjoy it.
Should you download it?
Yes, but you need to be up for the challenging gameplay and the failure that awaits you. If you’re a perfectionist, then this is not for you.
