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.
