Publisher's description of Icy Tower
Harold the Homeboy has decided to climb a huge tower he found the other day. It's up to you to help him get as high as possible without falling down, and collect extra points by doing cool moves on the way. Icy Tower is a fun and short, yet addictive game, where your only goal is to gain as many points as possible. This can be done in two ways. By getting as high as possible (you get points for each floor you reach) or by making combo jumps. A combo jump is a jump high enough for you to reach platforms two or three floors above you. By doing several uninterupted combo jumps you get bonus points. The best way is to climb really high and make combo jumps on the way. The game brings you custom characters, unlockable floor types, replays to share with your friends, and lots of combo rewards.Though it lacks complex gameplay or a detailed plot, Icy Tower is a carefree way to kill some time. Your goal is simple, but trickier than it sounds: to advance your character as far up the icy tower as possible without falling or being knocked offscreen. You ll be able to jump higher if you run faster, but you must take care not to slip off the platforms into the abyss. The game takes a rather humorous approach, with cartoon-style graphics that let you play as a hip-hop kid or a disco dude in a leisure suit. Although the demo version appears to disable a few of the game s more advanced features, you can still adjust the volume and reconfigure the controls to suit your taste. Icy Tower won t keep many folks on the edge of their seat, but it s likely to provide a few laughs.
