Cruel controls and philosophical mockery

The controls are where the true cruelty of Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy lies.  You maneuver the hammer with your mouse, using it to latch onto surfaces, propel yourself upwards... and often send yourself spiraling back down. One wrong move, and you'll find yourself back at the start… or worse.

Adding insult to injury, Bennett Foddy, the game's creator, delivers philosophical musings throughout your journey. These narrations only magnify your frustration as you fail over and over again.

Rage-inducing, yet addictive

Make no mistake: Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy is rage-inducingly difficult. It's designed to break you down. The constant setbacks can be infuriating. But oddly enough, it's also strangely addictive. Each tiny victory feels monumental. That elusive summit becomes an obsession.

Frustration games and focused difficulty

Comparisons with other 'frustration games' like QWOP are inevitable.  But, Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy has a focused difficulty. This isn't a game about a hundred ways to fail, it's about perfecting that one precise maneuver.

Tempered one’s worst enemy

Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy is not for everyone. It's niche, likely appealing to those with a masochistic streak. However, if you find triumph in overcoming the impossible, then brace yourself for a wild, maddening, and ultimately rewarding climb.

Should you give it a chance? If you have a high tolerance for frustration, a love for punishingly difficult platformers, and a desire to test the very boundaries of your composure, Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy is a must-try.
