Snakes And Ladders: Corporate Climber

By Quintin Smith on October 22nd, 2010 at 11:29 am.

That's how I dress when I go out, you know. Except the suitcase says RPS.

It’s Friday. You’ve had a long week at the office. The boss did that thing with his mouth and his fingers again this morning, the thing you hate. So why not relax with cathartic browser game Corporate Climber? It’s a bit great. You’re tasked with climbing a tall office block, and each new floor you reach means a promotion and a new challenge. Wonderful payoff of an ending, too.

Oh, wait- you’re in an office. Of course, there aren’t any games allowed in the office. Whoops! How silly of me. Back to work with you. Well, the rest of you should have a play.

    This is great fun, thanks! A friday coffee break well wasted! :-) The arbitrary objectives reminds me a bit of ye olde Alley Cat, which is a good thing.

    Fun game, I loved the ending.

      By the way: How do you kill the end boss? There’s no key or anything to throw those stones.

    • mlaskus says:

      SPOILER

      Just jump over him, your character will automagically drop them on his head.

      OH MY GOD I totally didn’t realise IT Guy was Garth Marenghi. British comedy is so inbred.

      It was, but for the last 15 years its either exactly the same, or WORSE. Now its all sex and shit and faggotry.

      It makes me sad that all people seem to remember from The Office is Ricky Gervais’ clowning rather than the other brilliant characters. Yes, the silly dance was mildly amusing, but nowhere close to “He’s put my stapler inside a jelly again.”

      I used to work in an office with someone EXACTLY like Matt Holness’ character in that clip. It’s uncanny.

    Yes I am in an office you bastard. I will have to wait until I get home to give this a go. I am however much more excited about Super Crate Box, and I hope we hear more about it later today!

    I’m in an office but played it anyway.

    Some bits were fun, some bits were about as much fun as DIY urethra surgery.

  6. JonFitt says:

    Bah, went left instead of right at the end. Is it worth going through again to go right?

    • BAReFOOt says:

      The second time you will be trough pretty quickly. But down in hell it’s hard. Also, the end-boss is unkillable, as there is an inventory, you can take things by running over them… but there is no key to throw or use them.

    • Wilson says:

      Spoilers!
      @BAReFOOt – Actually you can kill the end boss. When you pick up the rocks, just jump above Satan’s head (e.g. between the two top platforms). Arrows appear to show you where to go. Maybe they don’t appear if you have the in game hints/help turned on. I didn’t know there was an inventory :)

    Reminds me of an old Dilbert game lol

    Can’t figure out how to beat the furnace level.

    • plugmonkey says:

      Stand on the coal scuttle and jump over the open furnace mouth. I got stuck on that too.

  9. Hmm-Hmm. says:

    That very last area.. agh! Maybe I’m just not good at platformers, but that one drove me crazy, especially after I found it could be done.

  10. Zogtee says:

    Iron out the rough bits and focus on the fun bits, and this can be a contender.

  11. TCM says:

    So, there’s a darkened level that I can’t figure out how to access.

  12. Baf says:

    Come back after winning the game once and it’ll be open.

    The graphics make me think of the IT Crowd opening titles.
