Ice Climber is a vertical platform video game developed and published by Nintendo for release on the arcade during the winter of 1984 as well as the Nintendo Famicom in Japan and the Nintendo Entertainment System in North America in 1985. In Ice Climber, the characters Popo and Nana , collectively known as the Ice Climbers, venture up 32 ice-covered mountains to recover stolen vegetables from a giant condor. The first player controls Popo, a boy wearing a blue Eskimo parka.
The first player controls Popo, a boy wearing a blue Eskimo parka, while the second player controls Nana, a girl wearing a pink Eskimo parka. The only tool they carry is a wooden mallet to carve openings in the ice above and to club enemies. Each mountain level consists of eight layers of colorful ice and a bonus stage. Standard, dull ice blocks pose no threat other than an easily disposed of barrier and platform.
