Vegetables (Ice Climber)
Vegetables are items from the Ice Climber series.
Collecting just one piece of Corn on the fifth bonus level awards player with an extra life.
Though vegetables themselves do not appear in the game, the eggplant is used as the symbol for the Ice Climbers.
The vegetables appear on Summit, complete with a new 3-D look. They can be used to replenish characters' health. They also have a unique sound effect from the game Ice Climber when being eaten.
The Ice Climbers' goal is to climb peaks. Just below each peak is a bonus stage where these bonus items appear in this order: eggplant, carrot, cabbage, cucumber, corn, turnip, pumpkin, Chinese cabbage, potato, and mushroom. You'll also get points for grabbing the condor at the peak after collecting the veggies. Why vegetables? That's a mystery for the ages.
The vegetables originated from the game Ice Climber. While trying to complete a level, vegetables appear, and if the player collected all of them, the player is awarded a bonus.
