Ice Climber is a game for the Nintendo Entertainment System. The goal of the game is to get the Ice Climbers up to the peak of the mountain where the Condor is. Along the way, the player must jump on blocks and clouds while avoiding Topi, Nitpickers, and Polar Bears. There are also Vegetables to collect. The player wins a bonus, if the he or she collects all of the vegetables. The main characters are Popo, the boy in the blue parka, and Nana, the girl in the pink parka. There is also a multiplayer mode which features a head to head competition between Popo and Nana to see who can reach the top first. They can cooperate on the way up, but for the bonus it is a one-on-one competition.
