YMMV / Ice Climber

  • I Am Not Shazam: The game is "Ice Climber", the characters are "The Ice Climbers".
  • Scrappy Mechanic: Many fans feel that the jumping mechanics were the main reason why this game never spun out into a franchise like many of Nintendo's other NES-era titles, and was largely forgotten about until Super Smash Bros. came along.
  • So OK, It's Average: One of the more forgettable NES games, but nowhere near bad.
  • "Weird Al" Effect: The Ice Climbers are definitely more famous and notable for their appearances as playable fighters in Super Smash Bros. rather than their own game.
