TouchArcade Game of the Week: "Incredibly enjoyable.”
Droid Gamers: “A sequel to possibly the finest climbing puzzler ever created.”
Pocket Gamer: “It’s still a delight.”

Climbing is about carefully planning your route and flawless execution. In Crux you move your hands or feet to a new hold - but each hold will only let you hang on for so long. Find the sequence of moves that get you to the top and execute them! And when you've reached all the tops - beat the highscores by finishing each climb in the fewest possible moves.

Accolades for Crux: A Climbing Game:

- PocketGamer #1 'Game of the Week' (Sep 10 '20)

"Crux gives me some of the mental joys of climbing, if not the physical and social joy of doing it myself. In these s****y times, that’s a pretty great thing." Riley McLeod - Kotaku (Sep 11 '20):

Great addition

So far so good. Definitely more polished than the amazing original, but I miss having ratings for the climb and so far it’s a lot easier than the predecessor. Still I love it!!!

Update: moving to five stars as the difficulty definitely upped. Getting close to 3 stars on every route!

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the kind words! If you can get 3 stars on all routes make sure to join our Discord and get celebrated - not sure anyone has managed that yet! :)

Great stuff!

I recently got into climbing in real life and I really appreciate the attention to detail here! It’s really fun and challenging. Hope to see a more levels and a level editor soon!

Quirky, repetitive and annoying. Oh well.
