Tip Top: Don’t Fall! from Sometimes You is an arcade-style climbing game with procedurally generated routes to explore. You need to be careful as you climb to the top, paying attention to which are the best spots to grab onto so that you can reach the top before running out of stamina. Get to the top and grab onto the peg with the red flag, and you’ll complete the level! Simple, right?

The first thing to do will be to complete the tutorial segment for Tip Top: Don’t Fall! so that you can learn all of the basics and properly know what you’re getting yourself into. You’ll have to press and hold down the L1 and R1 buttons to grab with your left and right hands as you use the left and right analog sticks to move the corresponding hand upwards so that you can try and grab onto the next spot. Grab onto that one, and repeat the process so that you can climb as high as possible!

While doing this, you’ll have to keep an eye out on your endurance so that you don’t run out of stamina and end up falling down due to exhaustion. If one of your hands is low on stamina, then you should use the corresponding analog stick to bring that hand down to your chalk bag. Once there, press the X button to recover some stamina so that you can carry on with your experience.

As you climb, you’ll find bolts to which you can attach your rope to keep yourself safe in case of a mistake. Doing this will require a lot of stamina, so only do this when you’re scared of falling. If you grab onto a spot with both hands, you can then press and hold down the X button to charge up and jump. Jumping can help you reach a spot that you’d otherwise not be able to grab onto, but you’ll need to be careful because if you don’t do it just right, you could end up falling! Just aim your jump with the left or right analog sticks and try to get close enough to a spot to hold onto before it’s too late!

Since each level is randomly generated, you’ll have to learn from your mistakes as you go so that you can use that knowledge to survive during your next climb as you try to grab onto the right spots to avoid falling. You can make the game as chill or as challenging as you please since after you complete the tutorial, you can go into the settings section and select if Permadeath should be activated or not. You can also make it possible for your character to restart on the last bolt so that you can quickly carry onward.

The game offers a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy, and you’ll have to unlock 2 Bronze trophies, 4 Silver trophies, and 10 Gold trophies if you want to add that new Platinum trophy to your collection. It’s a straightforward list since you’ll have to complete all levels in each area to unlock trophies as you finish each level. This is not a Cross-Buy title, so if you want to work on a second Platinum trophy, you can make a separate purchase for the PlayStation 4 version at its $9.99 price.

Tip Top: Don’t Fall! is a fun roguelike rock climbing experience on PlayStation 5 that can be as challenging as you want it to be. As you progress further in the game and reach other areas, new elements are introduced. There will be spots you can grab onto but from which your hand will start to slip at a steady pace, frozen walls where spots to grab onto can break with ease, and even clouds that can block your view, costing you valuable seconds, thus forcing you to reevaluate and try to recover some of your lost stamina before it’s too late. Tip Top: Don’t Fall! is out on PlayStation 5 at a $9.99 price. There’s also a PlayStation 4 version available as a separate purchase available at the same price, and it features its own trophy list.

This Tip Top: Don’t Fall! review is based on a PlayStation 5 copy provided by Sometimes You.
