This computer game is called I Wanna Be The Guy. Don't let the title fool you. If you dare to try, this will possibly be the hardest game that you'll ever play in your life.

Anything and everything in this game will kill you. You are not safe. Apples (They're more like cherries, really...), Spikes, Lightning, Airplanes, Zombies...even Mike Tyson will send your little pixilated guy to his messy demise. Yes, you have it right. You are not hallucinating. I even said Mike Tyson.

You can get all the info you need here (http://kayin.pyoko.org/iwbtg/).

Let's end this on one last thing.

Are you sure you really have what it takes to be "The Guy"?

I wouldn't say that I wanna be the Guy is hard. I would rather qualify the game as extremely frustrating and repetitive. You need to get your timing straight or else, well either you stop playing after a whole 5 minutes or you'll throw your monitor out of the window.

Aside that, this game should be pretty fun for the retro gamers, since they took a lot of NES games and added a part of them. From what I played, when you're playing against Mike Tyson, it's actually the Mike Tyson taken from Punch Out!!, which brings you nostalgia of the NES era. (Oh and they've also added the NES sound effects *-*). Also the platform-style game is also an oldie ;D.

I'd recommend this for anyone who's got time to kill and doesn't get bugged easily!

Sounds ball-bustingly hard. I must play it.

I spent about 3 hours yesterday getting mindlessly smashed by moving spike-walls, spikes, apples that drop up (actually they're more like giant cherries), and basically everything that moves.

Can't get passed that third screen though. One cloud is stationary, the next plummets into spikes before you can even touch it, and the third (should I make it) immediately shoots up, ramming me into spikes. But, I will do this repetitively over, and over, and over again, because for some reason it is mind-bogglingly entertaining.

About to be the guy...
Been trying to beat the guy for a few hours or so, my arms are getting really sore... Too much shooting... You need inhuman arms to play this part.

I'm guessing once I achieve this, I'll be The Guy. I don't think I could reach higher level of awesomeness...

Edit: I am the Guy. Let's try it at Very Hard mode :D.
After ending the game, I really thought that jumping on a spike wouldn't kill me... Apparently, it did kill me.

i have played it and it is extremely frustrating and if you have that much free time, why are you playing a game? be productive and search for the cure for aids or something.

Well apparently you beat the Guy since you know you have to beat him using his own attack.
Good job, sir.

Unless you play it on impossible, where it becomes downright... impossible.

But we could ask ourselves how to quantify the "hard" of a game?

It'd be stupid to just say
-THIS [insert game name] IS WAY HARDER THAN [insert another game name]!!
Go on like this forever and ever.

I was reading on the IWBTG forum where it was saying that there are different "hard"s.
Kayin (IWBTG creator) said that IWBTG "tests resiliency and short term execution" in the reply he was posting to hard games. He was opposing the level of hard with those 2D Japanese shooters where they tested "perfection and stamina". An example of those shooter is MUSHIHIMESAMA FUTARI whatever it stands for.
