    Fear of a Black Box. They should make Shit Pickle a playable character.

      His nonchalant reactions are hilarious. He fell down that that damn hole like 3 straight times, and he’s still calm as a clam.

      I loved his words of wisdom: “It’s like life: it’s better to work with people than against people”.

    I love how Bootsy sort of is drawn to all the holes; like a magnet he can’t get away from them ^^

    I played this game back in the day when i was a kid. I enjoyed it but remember it being very difficult. Never made it to the last level. Watching this actually makes me wanna go back and try to beat it again !

    That game was always fun for a quick 10 minutes
    Then I would get bored and switch it for
    Super Mario Brothers or Dragon Warrior 2

    I like the combination of Mike & Bootsy. They play off each other well. (SEE WHAT I DID THERE?)

    Played this on a GBA port. Was pretty fun, but I traded it in. Probably more fun on multiplayer.

    I would love to see a video of Bootie and Doug playing together. They are polar opposites. One is calm and emotionless and the other is so full of emotions like over emotionful. Would be weird to see them together.

    You guys should play Comix Zone, very underrated

    Bootsy should so much beat this and then make “Bootsy Beats” 🙂

    I remember this game being hard, but I don’t remember having a problem with the controls. Because Ice Climber is a vertical scroller, the sprites have a high arcing jump (very unlike Super Mario). It looks like neither Mike nor Bootsy adjusted well to that.
    If you work well together, 2-player co-op is easier because you can attack the rock/ice layers faster if you both hit the same spot. This is key in later levels when the clouds move faster.

    You gotta play this game with game genie, triple speed is funny

    Pretty sure you could play just the audio of this behind a closed door and seriously disturb anybody walking by. That, or make a new “friend”.

    I love how Mike is saying how this is one of those games that Bootsy could get addicted to, and you can totally see it happening through the video haha. Bootsy keeps wanting to continue on, and is even thinking of strategies for how they can better work together.
