Whereas QWOP was all about running, GIRP (don't you just love saying these game names?) is a rock-climbing "simulation." Here you are given a cliff face which has multiple handholds attached to it. Each handhold is assigned a letter, and pressing the corresponding letter on your keyboard will cause the rock-climber to reach for that handhold using whichever free hand is nearest to it. You are also given the ability to flex the rock-climber's arm muscles, hoisting him up so he may reach handholds further up the cliff face.
|Just like in QWOP, prepare to bend your character in awkward poses.|
At first it seems like this game isn't too difficult, definitely easier than QWOP. After climbing a little ways up the cliff however, you'll find your fingers getting tangled up with each other as you try to hang onto one hand-grip while simultaneously reaching for another. I found myself feeling like a novice typist as I kept forgetting which letters my fingers were on, usually resulting in the rock-climber taking a plunge into the water at the base of the cliff. As an added bonus, the water level slowly rises, threatening to drown the rock-climber if he doesn't move fast enough. Don't believe my claims of its difficulty? Try it for yourself. Have fun and try not to destroy your keyboard in rage!
