Players control characters dressed in stereotypical-eskimo gear: player one is the blue-clad Popo, while player two is the pink-clad Nana. The general goal of each level is to [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin climb up several layers of ice to reach the top of a mountain]]. Each player carries a wooden mallet which they use to hit enemies, club openings in the levels, and collect power-ups. [[FundamentallyFunnyFruit Like eggplants]]... Just roll with it.

DeathThrows: Nana and Popo's death animations involve them getting thrown offscreen.

* ItsAllUpstairsFromHereItsAllUpstairsFromHere: Each level involves scaling a mountain, one floor at a time. If a floor has scrolled off the bottom of the screen, it cannot be re-visited; dropping down to it causes the player to lose a life.

** To explain. In different platformers, you have to be right on top of a platform when you're trying to land on it. In this game, to get to higher levels, you typically have to slightly overlap a higher platform as you're jumping up in order to land on it.

The game would likely be largely forgotten without the huge boost of publicity generated when Nana and Popo were {{unexpected| character}} inclusions in the ''VideoGameSuperSmashBros'' series, starting with the second game. Uniquely, while the two characters act as a team, generally the player is only able to control one at a time while the AI copies his movements. One can be defeated, but not the other, but a single Ice Climber is at a severe handicap.

''Ice Climber'' is a vertical scrolling PlatformGame originally released by Creator/{{Nintendo}} in 1984 for the Famicom in Japan, and was later converted into an arcade title in the "Vs." series (as with many early Famicom/NES titles). It was released in North America a year later as a launch title for the NES.

* NintendoHardNintendoHard: The game has a terrible jumping mechanic which makes missing platforms and falling down fairly easy.

Other media to reference Ice Climber include the ''VideoGame/{{WarioWare}}'' series (where it is the basis of several micro-games) and later iterations of the ''{{Kirby}}'' series (where Kirby's ice power-up gives him a parka exactly the same as Popo's). They also tend to appear in fan-works related to ''Smash'' such as ''ThereWillBeBrawl''.
