The Most Difficult Game - I wanna be the guy?
PostPosted: Tue 14 Oct, 2008  Reply with quote

Your thoughts on hard games, I might be up for a challenge over christmas break.

So far the hardest game i have played by FAR is a game called i wanna be the guy or IWBTG for short. Try it and see for yourself here:

it's just freaking absurd, I don't think anyones had beat it on immpossible difficulty yet.

ah! Russell got me addicted to that one, in the days of yore. i got pretty far on both «down» and «right» paths. never cared too much for the «up» path, and i only found out about the «left» path after i had definitely given up trying to be the guy.

the less save points, the cooler.

Lol, yes everything kills you....even the moon......and apples. BTW, if you drop down one level from where you started you can run through the left wall. If you drop down two levels you can walk through the wall on the right.

Therefore you have an up, down, left, and right path.

Happy Trails

*Bruno checks.

yes, i still know by heart the jumping sequence for the «down» path. that's embarrassing!

Lucidity_Master: they're not apples, they're more like big cherries. also, they're not very fond of gravity, so watch out.

Lol, no kidding.

Currently I'm stuck on the second boss of the left path though...the Bowser/Lizard/Wily thing....first two are easy but Wily is borderline ridiculous.

Lol, there are some videos on the internet of people doing the whole thing (not on impossible) - and my brother has beat the whole thing on very hard.

I wanna be the guy.. ahhh i remember this

i got pretty far into it. past the first boss (which says something about my willpower). My friend, on the other hand, made it all the way to the very last boss (the guy) before his computer's hard drive failed. yikes. heh

well the game is fun at first, but when the initial novelty of it wears off, well, it just gets boring.

It's not a matter of i gave up because it was hard, it just wasn't fun anymore.

Rawr, this game will someday make my head explode. I heard about it a while ago, but never really got around to installing it until a couple of weeks ago.

Well, if you're looking for some other frustrating games, I'd recommend getting the Jnes emulator and taking a crack at some of the classics; Battletoads and Megaman aren't exactly impossible, but they're enough to make you pull your hair out at times . Contra's also excellent. Without cheats/continues...*shudders*. Friggin' hard, especially if you don't know the levels very well (I barely pulled it off a few days ago, and I've been playing it for years).

three words: Heart of Darkness.

that game is about as sadistic and hard as i wanna be the guy, but it's style is a touch more macabre and still it's sold as «suitable for all ages». i don't know how they pulled that off.

imagine that you are playing an old computer game siiw i think it starts with z or x. Z or x shoots, and shift i think jumps.

i don't know it exactly, because i am on the phone 8P

q, shift works like enter, at least, it should should(you say you've tried it, which is strange) and Z shoots, but you can change these controls using CTRL+Y(or file --> controls)
