Atari HQ (2000)
While it's unfortunate that the VCS version is missing the handsome high-resolution graphics, the pitiful "Oh, Nooooooooooo," as the Climber falls from his perch, the giant gorilla and the bonus balloon, Atari did a decent job of retaining the feel of the arcade. It's too bad they didn't attempt a 5200 version, as it would've been better able to preserve the graphics and sound qualities of the coin-op, not to mention the dual-joystick control mechanism (with the dual-joystick holder that is used with Robotron and Space Dungeon). All things considered, VCS Crazy Climber is one of the better "extremely rare" 2600 games and worth a look if you're a fan of the original or a patient gamer.
The Video Game Critic (Oct 29, 2004)
It never lived up to the hype, but Crazy Climber is still a solid, well-programmed game. It was never widely distributed, and as a result it's now very rare and highly sought after by collectors.
