App description: Review: "Like all good endless games, StickMan Rocks starts out simply enough and ends with you hitting the 'retry' button again and again... just beware the evil cute-leprechaun-bunnies," AppSpy.com

You've never seen rock climbing like this parachuting penguins, roaring bears, bombardier birds, carrot-flinging flying bunnies, spitting snakes, and other perils lie in wait. Avoid perils, collect stars, and climb as high as you can!

Has two modes of play:

* Iron-man "Play" mode - the higher you go the tougher it gets
* Infinite "Kid Play" mode - just for fun and you never die

Good game. Really needs online high scores and a "hardcore" mode would be nice, but it's well-presented and fun.

So, is this Crazy Climber redone? I'm real interested based on the screenies, and love Crazy Climber, but want to make sure what it is.

From the devs

"StickMan Rocks" is a bit of a departure for us here at InMotion (of Dungeon Defense, I Dig It, and Catacombs "fame"). The game itself is more casual, and the art style is cartoonish. I've attached a few screenshots that should give a fair idea of the game. We would love to hear your feedback

"StickMan Rocks" is a fanciful rock climbing adventure game. StickMan must climb-on through never ending perils, like pooping birds, roaring bears, spitting snakes, paratrooping kiwis and penguins, helicoptering rabbits, and a ton more. Climb as high as you can while avoiding the perils. Collect stars along the way to earn extra lives. It starts out easy and steadily builds in difficulty as you climb.

Here's a little development anecdote...

We usually play-test our games with outside people at various points during development so we can watch reactions. One of the play-testers took an early version of the game home. It had a "never die" infinite-mode so we could easily test higher altitudes. Anyway the play-tester's 3-year old played the game for 45 minutes and the phone had to be taken away (who said taking candy from a baby was easy?). We sort of accidentally found out that very young children love the game, so we left the infinite-mode in the final release and called it "kid play."
