Mountain Maniac

Mountain Maniac

In Mountain Maniac you play a disgruntled mountain man terrorist who uses his axe to rain boulders down on the cities below. You also play the boulder, which is nice, because it’s the one having all the fun, really. Like most Pixeljam games (Gamma Bros., Dino Run), MM is filled with all kinds of neat details that really bring it to life. I just wish there were more, even challenging-er mountains to go nuts on.

According to Pixeljam’s blog, the game was made for Adult Swim as a series called “The 8-bit Rejects”. They’ve released one other game in the series, called Sausage Factory, and there are two more on the way – Turbo Granny and Cream Wolf. Sausage Factory is fun, too, but not as cool as Mountain Maniac, in my opinion. I’m really looking forward to Cream Wolf, though.

TIGdb: Entry for Mountain Maniac

    At first glance I thought this was the game Renton was working on.

  • pgil

    I like it. It’s like Plinko for angry hermits.

  • basro

    Are you sure its an axe? that looks like a hammer to me :F

  • Sphincter

    pretty fun, music was great

  • JoeHonkie

    I like Sausage Factory a lot better. I didn’t really feel like playing Mountain Maniac once I saw the basics of it. Not sure why.

    Sausage Factory is a neat take on the rhythm thing, though.

    I finally killed that goddamn yeti! Using X instead of Down makes a hell of a difference.

  • Hijongo

    Huh. I went from watching DeceasedCrab’s LP of this to seeing it on here…For a second, I thought I didn’t change pages.

  • Dinsdale

    I shouldn’t enjoy this as much as I do.

    Also, what fighter jet is that?

  • Nektonico

    Now my dream of being a deranged terrorist mountain man is complete…
    The game is great btw, 8 bit goodness at its best
