A trending category in the app stores these days is the ever impossible challenge type game apps, calling users to dare try to conquer the seemingly simple yet challenging tasks. Well if you are one that is drawn to dying and retrying over and over, Climber Square by Abyssal Studio is definitely for you. Here is some of the app’s description:
Climb and dodge the spikes by touching your screen left or right! How high can you climb with your square? Impossible or not?
In this new raging game, your goal is to make a square climb as high as you can by dodging the spikes. In order to do that, simply click on the right or on the left of your screen to make the square moves in the desired direction. The path seems impossible? Quick, go on the platform that appear on the right or on the left to climb safely, but only for a brief instant! And be careful, some of those platforms could be traps with only spikes on it! Yes, it’s hard, you’re going to rage and retry again and again!
Of course, don’t forget to collect diamonds while you climb to unlock more than 20 different squares with 11 country squares!

Climber Square is a simple hop from side to side action game where you play the endangered square that must avoid the spiky triangles at all costs. All you have to do is tap on the left side of the device screen to hop the square to the left and tap on the right for the opposite. Sounds like a breeze. When the speed and spikes increase it is anything but as you struggle to just to stay alive. Hit a spike and the game is over where you must start again from square one. Get far enough and you might be able to escape for a second by hopping to another platform above, but beware as these can be just as dangerous.
Like Flappy Bird and similar apps of the same vein, the urge to quit is strong in Climber Square, as it sometimes seems to be developed without a way to actually win. Then you get a little farther on your next run giving you that glimmer of hope and the will to try again. These addicting “rage quit” games trigger frustration but also fosters the will to win, making them quite addictive. The same is true with this app. The graphics are basic, colorful geometrical shapes but the fun is still there with a challenge you can’t quite win, yet great arcade style sound effects to fail to. This app also includes ads which can be removed for a small in-app purchase of $0.99. There are some incentives to watching the video ads as you can earn more diamonds to unlock other designed squares, though diamonds are a plenty throughout the game play and in free gifts. Share your scores with friends on social media and see if you can beat each other’s high scores.
Climber Square has a simple premise but also a fun and competitive edge. It isn’t anything we haven’t seen before, but if you are looking for a challenge, look no further. The app is available now in the Google Play store and App Store for free.
