A freeware platformer by Swedish programmer Johan Seitz, Icy Tower has been one of the more popular freeware titles of recent years. The game concept is simple: the player is in control of Harold the Homeboy whose job it is to ascend the Icy Tower by means of jumping Âon platforms. The screen scrolls constantly upwards, and it is game over if Harold cannot keep up.
Bonus points are awarded for combo jumps - the higher the combination of jumps brings you, the more points you get.Â
