Damnit, I feel lame but I'm stuck on Level 3. Guess I'll try again later. By the intro I was expecting something like the Oregon Trail, anyone know where I can get that?
2003-02-09 03:04:24 PM  
Damn you OREGON TRAIL! I thought I'd never hear about that cursed Apple II game ever again!
2003-02-09 03:05:26 PM  
I would have to dissagree with the first two points that headline made.
2003-02-09 03:06:27 PM  
Zoobtro: You could always try Kazaa, WinMX, etc.
2003-02-09 03:06:57 PM  
what the hell happened to the sim city link?
2003-02-09 03:07:10 PM  
What's that behind you? Ninja!
What's that around the corner? Ninja!
What's that in the bushes? NINJA!!

Ninja ninja ninja YAAAAAA!!!

Who's sneaking around your house? Ninja!
Who's taking all your beer? Ninja!
Who's that eating salad? NINJA!!

Ninja ninja ninja YAAAAAA!!!

Why's he killing neighbors? Ninja!
Why's he on a killing frenzy? Ninja!

Looks like no creamy ninja goodness for me.

Throw metal star... get hit with arrow... Throw metal star... get hit with arrow... Throw metal star... get hit with arrow... Throw metal star... get hit with arrow...

Greaaaat game, for me to poop on!
2003-02-09 03:11:50 PM  
God that just kept on going, the duel (level 4) consists of clicking on a guy for about 5 minutes until you get the option to restart the game.

2003-02-09 03:15:50 PM  
Is the server farked, or is it just me?
2003-02-09 03:15:50 PM  
AFM: The game dislikes mozilla. And I dislike the game. It's natures balance.
2003-02-09 03:15:51 PM  
Phillipe: Thanks for reminding me I have KaZaA, I almost never use it. And there's Trail. w00t
2003-02-09 03:16:30 PM  
Heh...Soothing Hands
2003-02-09 03:16:38 PM  
OMG did that suck
2003-02-09 03:17:27 PM  
W00t! (or something)

Site farked. Great game, being hosted on a Pentium 90 with the FP error.
2003-02-09 03:22:59 PM  
What the hell? What was with the crotch shot at the end of the level? And the chick is named "Soothing Hands??" This is teh crappy.
2003-02-09 03:27:45 PM  
Fudd I'm with you, but I'm also going to go ahead and disagree with the third as well.
2003-02-09 03:27:53 PM  
That is one of the worst games ever...

2003-02-09 03:28:02 PM  
Hardest game in the world? Yeah, probably for some 80 year old with arthritis. Pffft
2003-02-09 03:35:19 PM  
The End screen shot looks like the intro to REJECTED By Dan Hertzfeldt.

2003-02-09 03:39:27 PM  
you are WEAK!

2003-02-09 03:40:46 PM  
Lmao SuperCool..
2003-02-09 03:41:52 PM  
Hardest game in the world? I THINK NOT!

[image from too old to be available]
2003-02-09 03:42:15 PM  
Wait... Oregon Trail? Cripes, now I need to play that again. But I'm not seeing it on Kazaa...
2003-02-09 03:42:44 PM  
I really enjoyed that game. I say enjoyed, I mean tolerated. I say tolerated, I was hammering nails into my weiner and pouring acid into my eyes to try and distract myself from the pain of such a crap game.
2003-02-09 03:46:17 PM  
I disagree with all the points made in the headline. I beat it, and it wasn't fun. Perhaps I did have a quasi-addiction, but thats all.
2003-02-09 03:49:35 PM  
do try this with a stupid track point
2003-02-09 03:52:12 PM  
it almost makes it fun
2003-02-09 04:00:04 PM  
I think Fester's Quest should be mentioned... for NES.. It was hard in that you had ONE life for the ENTIRE game.. no passwords or continues.. if you died at last boss, yep start ALL OVER AGAIN!! Fun... I think?
2003-02-09 04:06:40 PM  
I've had nightmares since childhood about Ghouls N Ghosts. I'll be damned if that wasn't the absolute hardest game to come out for the NES.

I had the luck never to have played Fester, maybe I got off easy.
2003-02-09 04:09:10 PM  
...And let's not forget Contra, without using the cheat for 30 lives. That game nearly ruined me in the third grade.
2003-02-09 04:15:22 PM  
Was Ghouls n Ghosts the one where you start off in a suit of armor, get hit, and then you're in your undies, and then if you get hit again you die?
2003-02-09 04:18:04 PM  
Let me be really old-school NES and vote for the surfing part of T&C Surf Designs.
2003-02-09 04:18:34 PM  
Post should say, lamest game ever.
2003-02-09 04:18:40 PM  
There was a clone of Ghouls and Ghosts for the C64 called Ghosts and Goblins (Pretty damn obvious huh?)
Same thing, had armor, lost it then your in yer kegs, then BAM, dead

Plus, Enemies spawned at an OBSCENE rate. Difficult blind jumps. Was HELL.
2003-02-09 04:23:07 PM  
OK... Let me get this straight... This game was fun right?
2003-02-09 04:28:01 PM  
Anyone remember Life & Death? It took my best friend and I our entire 7th grade year to do a successful appendectomy. Completely trial-and-error... cut one pixel too far and they kick your ass out of the OR.

I don't have enough beer in the apartment to even begin thinking about the other surgery in that game (the one where you had to remove the aortal embolism)...
2003-02-09 04:28:53 PM  
Oh, man. Another game just popped into my head. I bought Operation Wolf used for $3 recently, and that has to be the most ridiculous, and absolutely unplayable, NES game ever made. Try lining up the light gun to kill ONE soldier, let alone a damn helicopter. It stands, in my opinion, as one of the few light gun games that is easier to play with the controller.

Play it, and you will curl up into a ball and cry.
2003-02-09 04:42:51 PM  
SuperCool, bingo.
2003-02-09 04:54:09 PM  
It can't be harder than Ninja Gaiden (TM)
2003-02-09 05:03:46 PM  
Considering that there's no way to dodge the arrows...I'd say the game blows hard.
2003-02-09 05:12:37 PM  
Go go Ninja boy.
2003-02-09 05:39:09 PM  
I won. You guys must be lame.
2003-02-09 05:41:31 PM  
I thought it was an alright game. Not really addictive, or hard...but a decent game for fans of the Ninjai series...I think the cutscenes in between are the real incentive for beating the game, they look sweet.
2003-02-09 05:52:44 PM  
2003-02-09 05:58:39 PM  
Zen_Monkey: I beat that game easy..on the Amiga..with a mouse. It ruled ass.
2003-02-09 06:13:06 PM  
Having horrible controls and a bad concept => hard.
2003-02-09 06:27:20 PM  

I remember doing the operation for a subdermal hematoma(sp?) on the Life or Death 2. That was the only operation that I could perform, but what was funny is that you had to leave the tube in the patient's head in order to win... Bug in the game I hope :(

/I could beat contra without the code... no problemo.. I remember playing Tiger Heli for hours because some a$$hole told me there was an end to it, but there was no damn end.
2003-02-09 06:36:56 PM  
Epileptic-Fish I never got past that surfing level of T&C surf and skate. I have no idea if there was anything else because I would beat the skating level and then die as a stupid gorrila on a surfboard.

Also in the ninja game, press w to skip to the next level, makes it pretty easy =)
2003-02-09 07:13:12 PM  
That was quite easy, once you learned how to beat it. If it didn't have a nice and easy continue feature I would've quit on the third level, though.

Beat the final guy with 4 life on the second try. It was a stupid game. =/
2003-02-09 07:21:54 PM  
Took 2 tries to figure out the third level, and then I beat the boss on my first try. Not a hard game, or a particularly good one. Some decent animations between levels though.
2003-02-09 07:29:16 PM  
I'm running mozilla, and I had no problem with it. Other than the fact that it blows ass.
2003-02-09 07:32:04 PM  

I would trade an entire truckload of optical mice for a keyboard with a trackpoint in it for my desktop

best device for playing FPS games ever

/wants his inverse-nipple finger back
2003-02-09 07:37:36 PM  
the story kinda reminds me of mario, kill all the drones and the boss then you get the princess. imho!of course
2003-02-09 09:41:28 PM  
Ok, how many sexual innuendos did you pick up in the text intro?

Ms. "Soothing Hands" whose father is "Wrinkled Plum". There were others.
2003-02-09 09:56:03 PM  
you have some troubles to sort, my boy :P
(just joking)
2003-02-09 10:23:40 PM  
Oregon Trail is on X-E or iMockery, but im pretty sure its on iMockery, they have the Apple II rom download and the game
2003-02-09 11:07:22 PM  
Is there any way to defend yourself from those @(*%&(@#$ arrows? Either they hit your character or the "people behind you" and take your life. And half the time the archers stand so far back your throwing stars don't seem to even make it that far.

This game suckkkkks....
2003-02-09 11:50:18 PM  
can we say piss poor response time? Good lord, the strategy guide says to wait until they start their attack. By the time I do that, I'm dead. Now I may not have the fastest personal reaction time, but something was seriously farked up between when I clicked the mouse button and when something would happen
2003-02-09 11:56:11 PM  
If you need the strategy guide, don't bother playing the game. It won't help, and the game is easy if you learn the timing.

There are those among us who have been playing video games since birth, thus molding it into a sort of religion, and then there are those who will forever struggle with frustrating excercises in precision mouse clicking, such as this game.

I'm not sure if I'm happy to be in the first group.
2003-02-10 12:33:42 AM want difficult?

FFI, all white mages. No GG.
Super Ghouls and Ghosts...arcade and snes.
Maximo, Rockman and Forte, Contra 3(without the shooting places).

That'll make a gamer outt ya.

Why is it that the fewer the bits, the tougher the challenge?
2003-02-10 01:13:55 AM  
Played the game, not impressed. On another note...did anyone else thing Wizards and Warriors was a tough game? I mean most of the time you are jumping up and up and up, you time something wrong and are way at the bottom NES sucked. Except that i could show off my patented "spit-blow" that would get almost any game running. I was to the NES what Fonzi was to the jukebox.
2003-02-10 02:17:24 AM  
Truthslayer -

FFI with 4 whitemages isn't too hard... try beating the game with only one character... now that's tough.
2003-02-10 02:26:13 AM  
Ghouls 'n' Ghosts is the sequel to Ghosts 'n' Goblins. FYI.
2003-02-10 05:28:27 AM  
FF with 4 ninjas teh ubernice
2003-02-10 10:38:00 AM  
The only thing fun about the game is that everytime someone beats it, or isn´t amused by it, the guy who submitted the headline gets to look bad. Eh, fun!
2003-02-11 04:17:20 PM  

seriously, i think it SUCKS.
