More Pixeljam goodness! In Corporate Climber you play as a working man who is trying to get to the top of the corporate ladder, having started his first job without even a piece of clothing to his name. To climb to the top of the building you would have to reach the elevator that takes you to the next level, and every new floor presents a different challenge or another puzzle for the player to solve.
Death is unavoidable and happens rather frequently in this game, but your onscreen character is usually up and ready for his next try just a split second after being burnt, poisoned, bitten, or crushed by another deviously-placed trap in his way. Extra points can be scored by finishing a floor quickly without getting hurt or finding one of the numerous secrets hidden in every room, although most players are more likely to be concerned with just making it to the end of their journey with as little frustration as possible.
The game takes about half an hour or so to beat on your first try, but you can close the browser window and resume playing later by using the handy level skip option (found in the main menu screen). There is no difficulty setting to fiddle with, so you'll need to have quite a bit of patience, persistence and perseverance if you want to reach that last room and beat the final challenge.
Corporate Climber can be played over at Adult Swim.
