An old arcade game

Does anyone know if there was ever a version made for the Amiga of an old Arcade Game called Crazy Climber? If so, I'd like to get a copy of it for the missus to play as I can't get my MAME version to work.

I've just played Crazy Climber in Mame v0.119u2 and it seemed to work fine. It's really difficult to control using the keyboard though but I managed to climb a fair distance up the building. You have to position the guy just right in order to ascend.

What exactly doesn't work for you?

You know that the game used two joysticks right?

The default keys are e,s,d,f for the left stick (left arm and leg?) and i,j,k,l for the right (right arm and leg I guess).

I don't think there is a Crazy Climber version for the Amiga.
However I know Window Wizard:

It's not the same game, but the first time I played it suddenly Crazy Climber came to my mind.

Thanks to both you guys.


SUne....I've been a complete and utter cabbage. I was thinking it was only a 1 stick control game, hence never being able to move! Also it's pretty bloody clear that the missus couldn't have played it THAT often else she'd have remembered. As the Spanish would say (in terms of frustration..) "hay que joderse"

FC Studio, cheers too. Maybe I should d/l it and get her to play it instead.

I know this game

You can play the Emerson Arcadia 2001 version of Crazy Climber on an Amiga via the AmiArcadia emulator (http://aminet.net/misc/emu/AmiArcadia.lha).

Look at second scan: http://hol.abime.net/534/boxscan Maybe it's similar to Crazy Climber in playability.

No, the gameplay is a lot different.
