Santa needs your help! He is at the top of a mountain, but which 1? Progress your way through the game unlocking new mountains and try to save Santa!
There are 4 mountains split up into sections, don't vote low and say there is only 1 mountain because you need to gain points to unlock the rest. For more help goto http://lifemadelazy.com/u pwalkthrough.html for a walk through.

Arrow keys to control your climber.
Go to the cheat section and save your game if you run out of time!
Click submit on the top right corner of the map to submit your score to the high scoreboards!
Falling/jumping too much will cause you to lose health from the impact when you land (jumping to a ledge above you won't hurt you at all)

Thanks for playing!

Its just impossible to avoid those rocks.


Very suckish game, I HATE IT! Please make Up again from scratch or rescript EVERYTHING then it's a awesome game and the quality is low, Just rescript it or redo this again. I really hate this game. Better luck next time too!


that was pretty good. How long did it take?

replaying this game

+++ Wonderful music.

++ Fairly refreshing gameplay. Took me a wee while to realise I was just playing a platformer wih hitTest on the hands! Shows what a difference a 'skin' makes!

----- The falling rocks don't really give us enough warning, so getting hit by them or not seems random and unfair.

--- I think we start losing energy too early in the jump. Or your levels are designed badly with this in mind. Probably both. You force us to jump to areas the same height as the place we came from. Make it so we only take damage when going lower than the starting point.

--- We lose no energy if we slip off an edge and fall far - only if we jump off. This seems silly and incongruous.

-- Link opens up in current window. Have target="_blank".

??? Make it so you tell us our scores for each level individually. After completing a level have the old/new final scores. That'd help us understand how to improve.

?? Maybe also show us some 'world record' for each mountain? Just a number that you consider the best possible score.

??? Show us the score needed to unlock the next level.#

?? Have some facts about the mountain we'll climb, shown just before we do. Maybe a stat-sheet (height/location) with a brief paragraph.

Played level one, played level 2. Completed it a few times but failed to open level 3. Decided to quit.

Really, I'm probably not gonna play again. Too much about this game irritated me.

When I clicked for help though, I did really like your 'flavour text'. That encouraged me to try one last time before giving up.

It was mildly enjoyable, but not enough to do all the replaying this game requires.

I wanted to suggest you change the mechanics in some way, but couldn't think of any suggestions that don't involve ragdoll physics.

PARAGON-pvp responds:

Wow, I really appreciate the length to your review and how in-depth it goes. I would like to answer all of the problems you had but I really am limited to how much time I have for writing this review as I have to leave soon. I'll write a PM follow up if I feel needed.

To start off I am thinking about re-submitting a 1.2 version with the following things fixed:
How you lose so much health when you jump, I find you'll think Mt. Kilimanjaro was much better in that sence because you're climbing down into a mountain, if you need help getting to it go to the cheat bar and type in "killa" all small with no "".
I was going to change it so the rocks are slower and let people know that where they fall is a fixed position so if you see a rock falling in a certain area you best avoid it for it's going to come down again within the next 10 seconds or less.
More detail on how to play each level before you actualy start the level in each game,,, Mt. Everest had some detail but it was hardly any at the same time (lvl cheat for that lvl is "everwin")
I would like to add more detail as far as graphics are concerned on the mountains, I feel they could have been done better.

In responce to your comment on slipping off and losing no health, this is actualy not true it is just because you start gaining fall speed faster when you jump, you still will lose health but it will take more time.

I will do my best to send you a PM going further into your review later on in the day. Thank you again for your review, much appreciated!


good one

that was a pretty good game. pretty difficult in some places, but that was a good thing though, i like games with a good challenge to it.
