I like to play it with romantic music in the backround. Then I go back to writing fanfiction after fanfiction about nana's affair with the polar bear.

In all seriousness though I do play this with romantic music playing, it feels so right.

Loved this one. This and Kid Icarus were my favorites. Aparently I have a thing for endlessly going upward.

Some answers to your quesitons -RoG- :

The different levels were supposed to have mountains with different colors but the blocks of ice themselves were supposed to remain blue. This is supposed to reflect real life (in insaine nintendo real life anyway) as mountains at lower elevation tend to be brown, mid sized mountains tend to be green and tall mountains are usually covered by snow. The end product was a result of the nes's pallette limitations and/or a programming error. You be the judge as to which.

The polar bear is wearing a speedo and swimming goggles. He's a member of the polar bear club! GET IT! HA HA HA HA HA HA HA! Damn those nintendo programmers were funny!

I heard a rumor back in the day that orignally the condor was supposed to have stolen babies instead of fruit. Of course nothing bad happens to babies in nintendo land.. well except for the yoshi's island games... anyway, it was censored down to vegtables. It might be completely untrue, but considering the myth that large birds steal children and climbing a mile high mountain to get some fruit is silly, there might be some truth to it.

This game looks somehow like Joust... And yes, the birds are the deadliest enemies of NES.

Stage 16 was too hard, I never got to finish the game as a kid.

The jumping controls for Ice Climber aren't very sensitive. It's a pain in the ass when you have to get to the higher part of the mountain but you have no running room. That said, they need to make a new version of this, if for no other reason than to provide a new kind of Ice Climber stage in the next Smash Bros.

They should remake this as Sarah Palin's Alaska Adventure, where you have to get high priced clothing items that a Russian Condor has stolen back so you can return them after your failed vice presidential bid.

I remember being disappointed as a kid when I found out that you didn't play as that cool looking Polar Bear.
