Crazy Climber For The Atari 2600

Even though the Retroist didn’t think too highly of the Crazy Climber port to the Atari 2600 system…I still have to say this is a game that I need in my collection, it might even be the Holy Grail for me…actually that would probably be a prototype copy of Airworld from the SwordQuest series.

Crazy Climber is a rare title that was made available back in the day through the Atari Club though it apparently was released in very limited numbers at toy clearance stores as well.

  1. Justin, you’ve never heard of Crazy Climber? It’s a classic, my friend…well, at least the arcade game is I should say. You are right about the artwork on the cart, it is fantastic!

    Yeah the arcade game is a good one but I agree that the home port is awful.
