Any tips on playing Crazy Climber on a keyboard? I can't seem to get him moving right.

Dual joystick games are a pain on the keyboard. There's no easy way to make it work. That's just the nature of using a keyboard for some games.

You're better off with a Playstation-style gamepad - the buttons are in a configuration that's close enough to use as a D-pad with your right thumb. That or get a real two-stick setup...

Tricky, but not impossible... wink

Position your hands on the keyboard so your middle fingers are on the "E" key (Left Hand) and the "I" Key (Right Hand).

Your index fingers should then be positioned on the ""D" Key (Left Hand), and the ""K" Key (Right Hand).

This will give you basic Up/Down movement. Left and Right become a bit tricker, as you need to use "S" / "F", and "J" / "L" for Left and Right movement (all by default)

Of course, the ideal solution is a dual 8-way joystick configuration... :p

Get a gamepad like the Nyko AirFlo EX. The two analog sticks work perfectly for games like Crazy Climber, Robotron, Karate Champ, Black Widow, BattleZone, etc. I actually got to the 3rd building in Crazy Climber using the gamepad.
