Blaster Master. I've made it to level 8 a few times, but never beat it. Also, the only way I can seem to beat the level 5 boss is by exploiting a glitch.
Yes! I agree. It took years for me to figure out how to beat the Area 5 boss. Once I figured out you needed a full gun to do so, I managed to beat the game. I will say, however, that Area 6 and 7 bosses are very difficult to pass without the 'pause' glitch. I find them more challenging than the final boss, IMO.
The game of life... Though there's certainly times I wouldn't use the word "love", as I'm sure most of you could agree. I don't think anyone ever really master's it and certainly no one beats it. As soon as you fool yourself into thinking either of the two life always finds a way to slap you up side the head and snap you out of your fantasy...
This is deep stuff, Grimlock. Really.
...unless, of course, you ARE referring to the Game of Life, the board game in which I'd say you're taking it a bit too seriously, but that's just me.
Wow, respect !! I beat Life Force many times with the 30 lives code, but I couldn't possibly imagine going further than the 2nd level without it.
I do admit this happened once a while ago. I couldn't do it again without devoting lots of time practicing.
I see some Mega Man on here which, I agree, the games can be difficult. The NES Mega Man games are quite challenging, at least the ones I played. The only Mega Man game I beat was on the PlayStation, Mega Man X4 I believe.
I always relied on the 30 Lives code for Contra. But I will say I've played it enough times that, with practice, I could potentially beat it without it. Never tried, though.
The only Castlevania game I played was Simon's Quest. I never loved a game as much as I hated it. I have not beaten it, but it brings up an interesting question...
Does anyone believe that someone can beat Simon's Quest without doing ANY research at all? Makes me wonder how long it would've taken people to figure out how to progress through the game without Nintendo dropping hints. Makes me curious.
