Classic NES Series - Ice Climber ROM

classic nes series ice climber rom
When focusing on the main objectives, Ice Climber is about 2 hours in length. If you're a gamer that strives to see all aspects of the game, you are likely to spend around 3 Hours to obtain 100% completion.
The characters Popo and Nana collectively known as the Ice Climbers, scale 32 vertically scrolling levels of ice-covered mountains to recover stolen vegetables from a giant condor.
Series creator Masahiro Sakurai confirmed that their relationship is platonic by saying, "By the way, Popo and Nana are a childhood friends-like boy-and-girl pair. The "more than friends, but less than lovers" kind."

Additional Information

Classic NES Series: Ice Climber is a Game Boy Advance port of the Nintendo Entertainment System video game Ice Climber. It was released as part of the Classic NES Series games, which were made to be almost exact emulations of the classic titles, with few to no omissions or additions. Unlike Classic NES Series: Bomberman, this game retained its multiplayer mode which made it so unique. This is not the first time that the game was released on the Game Boy Advance, as Nintendo also released it in the form of Ice Climber-e for the e-Reader, which cost much less than it cartridge counterpart at $5 compared to this titles’ $20.

The first player controls Popo, a boy wearing a blue parka, while the second player controls Nana, a girl wearing a pink one. The only tool they carry is a wooden mallet to carve openings in the ice above and to club enemies. Each mountain level consists of eight layers of colorful ice and a bonus stage. Standard, dull ice blocks pose no threat other than an easily disposed-of barrier and platform. Square ice blocks with higher detail are indestructible, forcing the player to take another path. Hatched ice acts as a conveyor belt sliding Popo or Nana either left or right.

Finally, many mountains include unbreakable moving platforms resembling clouds. The bonus stage takes place at the peak. Within a 40-second time limit and no enemies, the Ice Climbers often face trickier jumps and multiple moving platforms. The peak is also the only place to recover stolen vegetables, most notably eggplants. Collecting just one piece of corn from the fifth bonus stage is the only way to gain an extra life. At the top of the peak, the Condor flies overhead.
