Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy

Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy is a massively popular downloadable arcade game created by the independent creator Bennett Foddy. The player’s task is to climb a steep slope. He has a hammer in his hands – his climbing tool, while his lower body is stuck in a large pot. The title was released for Windows and macOS. The game has a very simple graphic design, but the graphics are not what makes this game so great. The game’s charm lies with the fact that it does not forgive even the smallest mistake and is extremely very addictive.

The Gameplay

At the beginning of the game, the main character, Diogenes, emerges half-naked from a big pot. However, he still remains hidden in it, from the waist down. This doesn’t stop him though because he can move by means of a huge hammer he holds in both hands. With the help of this tool, the hero moves around the virtual world, overcoming many different difficulties. Still, because of his legs not being free, he has serious physical limitations. He tries to move and he succeeds, then he wants to climb a rock, which seems impossible at first. Everything depends on the player’s skills.

The landscape consists initially only of trees and rocks, then it gets more and more elaborate. Throughout the game, the protagonist can hear the philosophical comments of the author of the game. They refer to the actions of the main character, and they are quite witty.

The prize that waits at the end of the game is a great secret. it will be awarded to the master of the upward journey. You just need to reach the top of the impossible mountain.

Getting Over is a game in which there is basically no plot. To move, use a mouse, touchpad or your controller.

The rules of the game are very simple but the game itself is not so. The game does not allow you to save your progress, there are also no checkpoints and when you fail and fall you fail for god. All you have left is your experience. The game can last for a few minutes (in fact this is the amount of time it takes to speedrun the game), and in the worst case, it can take hours. Even the smallest mistake means losing your progress. Everything must be started from the beginning, and the player once again, using only his hammer and the pot, must show how far he can move around the virtual world.

The game is designed in such a way that you can fall down the precipice at any moment, and during the journey, there are many traps, tricks or obstacles. After overcoming each new obstacle, the player gains more experience and everything goes much more efficiently. Each movement of the hammer accurately reflects the movement of the mouse. This game can be played indefinitely. Getting Over It with Bennet Foddy has a simple clear graphic design, and the character moves into two dimensions.

Getting Over It is the successor of the once-popular QWOP by the same author. It has similar gameplay and controls. Again proper coordination of movements is crucial.
