    Getting Over It With Bennet Foddy [Steam] - Review

    This is the new Sexy Hiking game form the early 2002, which has some thing similar to offer but this game here nails the purpose of hiking, completely punishes the player who plays the game and test his patience for a while and makes us think about many things.... While you're playing the game you'll be hearing the words of the developer who made this game, yes you're right the developer is Bennet Foddy as the name of the game itself suggests....

    You might have seen this game played by many famous youtubers like pew and many other famous youtubers. So, whats in this game that makes his game so addicting yet punishable game... Read along to find out more....

    Getting Over It with Bennet Foddy <Sexy Hiking>:

    So, you actually get an idea of the game once you launch the game as you'll hear the voice from the developer explaining you how and why he made this game... Well, turns out its was just to hurt and punish some of them...



    "A game I made for a certain kind of person, To hurt them" is the tag line in the game details in the Steam Store page... So, this can relate once you start playing the game.



    So, here are some of the steam Statistics of the game, Getting Over It with Bennet Foddy:

    • Single Player Game
    • Partial Controller support
    • Commentary available [which is basically funny and kinda empowering while you play the game, from the developer himself ~kappa]
    • Release Date: 7th December 2017 [Made its initial debut in humble bundle's bundle for that month]
    • Developer: Bennet Foddy
    • Publisher: Bennet Foddy
    • Reviews: Very Positive
    • Tagges as Psychological Horror game of its kind, and Physics game which is actually difficult to play
    • Has 3 steam achievements which are quite understandable as the achievements are really difficult and hard to achieve, you'll see what they are once you check out the gameplay


    So, what's this game all about? you may ask... Well, here its a punishing climbing game which is a homage to the old game called Sexy Climbing... You move with a hammer and you shall have to climb the mountain or that pile of stuff that's there in the game's level. And you're also stuck in a bowl, which makes it even more understandable that you are moving with a hammer to get to the top of the mountain in the game all efforts only with the mouse clicks and timing.

    I have to say that this game requires timing to an extent that you're ready to giveup and just start spamming the mouse 1 all the time instead of understanding the physics involved in the game.



    There is another quote from the game, its "Hiking action in this game is very similar to the way you would do it in real life, remember that and you'll do well"

    That escalates quickly and gets you a hold on the game... You'll find out that spamming mouse 1 and moving it as you like is far more realiable than thinking and understanding the physics involved in this game but that's not how you play  this game for sure. You'll end up somewhere on the map and then fall off from that position leading to more frustration than ever before....



    So, this game does require some specific hardware requirements and it won't run on all POTATO PCs and Laptops unless they're pretty good to handle this game.
    > Intel / AMD Dual Core Processor
    > Intel HD Graphics or any integrated graphics are more than enough for this indie game
    > 2GB of space available on Hard Disk

    I was kidding when I said this game requires specific hardware, this game is more of a physics type game than of graphics type game, it requires a lot of patience and effort in order to play this game precisely and completely. The game states that there is a Magical Reward for hikers who reach the top.... well it might just be a click bait type one but who knows, I haven't made it to the top. I just play for the fun of it and the way it is designed...

    Verdict:
    A good game involving physics to the maximum extent and having fun is the main motto of the game. This game actually punishes you for not being careful at the corners while hiking and you'll be ready to loose the patience and break the silence if anything goes wrong in the game... Not to mention that commentary though, it'll be describing what you're trying to do in not only in the game but also in the real life. A pretty good game....

    Steam: 9/10
    Engine: Unity Engine
    Publisher: Humble Bundle [Initially]

    Thanks :)
