Pocket Climber is action game that calls to mind the fast-flicking action of a game like Temple Run. You climb a never-ending skyscraper and flick your character to dodge pianos, bears, and several crazy obstacles.
Along the way you must collect coins, which will come in handy when you succumb to the obstacles. The more coins you accumulate the higher the level you can continue from. Each time you fall or are knocked off the buildings you must pay to be placed back at the same spot. As is the custom now Pocket Climber will of course ask if you want to spend actual money to boost your coins account.
Resist the temptation. It is easy enough to earn coins through good play. Also, give up on the idea of scoring every single coin. It just isn’t possible, as the lines of coins are in multiple paths. You will need to pay attention to both flying objects and obstacles you must leap over.
There is a good tutorial that will show you the way. Success comes with quick reactions and swiping the climber to the side or flicking to leap over danger.
The game is a remake of the classic title Crazy Climber, which was the first popular game to have a perpetual running scheme.
