moistD: some_beer_drinker: jake_lex: It's not this?[foddy.net image 639x399]no, it's this.[www.texturemonkey.com image 500x375]that level is really not that hard. Maybe its because for a while I only played that game, and with no saving mechanic I had to play it often. But its not like the level layout is random and the controls are tight enough that its really not that hard to dodge the seaweed. I think the difficulty of this level is more urban legend at this point.
Rising_Zan_Samurai_Gunman: If you're looking for modern games with similar gameplay concepts, check out SpaceChem (also on Steam), or there are a lot of Flash games with the same idea, like The Codex of Alchemical Engineering

thatguyoverthere70: Yo, Robot Odyssey, I'm really happy for you, I'mma let you finish, but "Carnage Heart" was the hardest game OF ALL TIME.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carnage_Heart

Semper IvXx: That totally sounds like fun. Logic puzzles? Hooo boy that sounds like a freaking party. Can I play in my basement by myself with minimal lighting and microwave food as my only sustenance? I'll be so hardcore then I'll be able to start a video game blog./making a hard game is exceptionally easy//making an enjoyable game is much more difficult
gwowen: aharown: Subby is clearly an idiot if (s)he believes that being a computer programmer in ANY WAY correlates to being a good gamer, as the idiotic submission implies.Unless, of course, the game is a puzzle game based around generating solutions to problems by arranging boolean logic gates in an increasingly complex series of patterns to command robots to perform difficult automated tasks. Then, being a computer programmer might be totally relevant.You know if, hypothetically, that's what the game under discussion was about./ RTFA, dumbass
aharown: You're the dumbass. Go back and read subby's post. The side comment about being a computer programmer is independent of the game. The implication of the clause is that, GENERICALLY, being a computer programmer is statistically correlated with gaming skill.I evaluated the clause on its own merits because it stood apart from any specific link to the game. READ THE farkING SUBMISSION, DUMBASS.

Wessoman: thatguyoverthere70: Yo, Robot Odyssey, I'm really happy for you, I'mma let you finish, but "Carnage Heart" was the hardest game OF ALL TIME.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carnage_HeartTruth is, is that the later (and far more difficult) Carnage Heart games never made it to the US. I had not played Robot Odyssey, but to me, Carnage Heart seems to be the far more rewarding concept, because it mixed combat with logical flowcharts. I guess it's a male thing.But yeah, Carnage Heart was awesome. And the DS Carnage Heart games are screaming for fanslations. Seriously.
Somaticasual: Shouldn't the hardest game to play be life, technically?// no one has ever won, and the high score is in the lowest range of 3 digits..
