Crazy Climber Arcade Flyer Version 2 (1980)

Crazy Climber marquee
We’ve talked about how awesome the classic arcade game Crazy Climber is on the site once or twice before but to help illustrate the mechanics of the game we’re sharing this rather colorful second version of the arcade flyer. Gone is the Towering Inferno styled flyer, instead we learn that the Climber is named Crazy and are treated to the various obstacles he’ll encounter throughout the game. We even learn that Crazy has an archnemesis named Dr. Dropper, who is the character that naturally is dropping things on top of your head at the most inopportune time during the game.

That of course isn’t the worse thing that Crazy will have to face while trying to climb to the top of the building.

A big thanks as always to the Arcade Flyer Archive for always sharing their awesome scanned flyers!
