Explore the snowy summits of the alpine mountains. Avoid pits of death, see a reindeer, and reach the goal!
How to Play
Arrow Keys - Move Left and Right
Ctrl - Jump
Hold Shift - Run (takes awhile to build momentum)
(running creates longer jumps)
Hitting a wall in mid-jump will cancel your forward momentum immediately.
This makes jumping over obstacles somewhat of a challenge since your character accelerates VERY slowly. Hold down shift while you jump to make life easier.
Just unzip and enjoy.
The Alpinist is a very detailed and atmospheric game along the lines of Seiklus. Stylish trade-mark Craig pixel art grace the work from beginning to end. Little things like snow particles, doors swining in the wind, and wavy flags makes each screen interesting to look at. While the Alpinist is pretty, the sluggish controls (possibly an effort to capture the effects of numbing cold?) prevented me from enjoying the game to as much as I could. The ending screen suggests future alpinist games to come! Bring it on Craig!
