Icy Tower

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 ­on 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.

What works

Sound, graphics, highscore table instructions page, changing character and floor, replays, switching between profiles, custom game mode. The game is playable

What does not

Fullscreen mode. The game does change to fullscreen mode, but it can't be used, as the mouse doesn't seem to work then. Don't change to it because it seems you can't return back to normal mode after it (the game stays of the problematic fullscreen mode even after closing and reopening the game, so the settings can't be changed).
