Shadow of the Beast 2 wasn't as hard as the first one, I don't think.  I just don't see a way to get through the jetpack area on SotB 1 without help...  There's too much junk on the screen.  Not enough clear places available to move into, let alone a clear path to get there.

Whoever mentioned "Killing Game Show"....  ABSOLUTELY!!!  I think level 5 or 6 was my record, without trainers...  haha!

>Then there's Super Stardust

Erm... This must be among the easiest games, it can be finished with one hand (except the CD32 version, which technically requires two hands for the joypad). Stardust is a lot tougher but since I also finished that one it is not impossible.

Hmmm, most difficult ones? Must be something like Beast 2 and Project X (original edition)...

See ya,

I would have to agree Shadow of the Beast 1 was pretty dam tuff. I did eventually manage to complete it, however, but that was with the help of a whole bunch of info on where to go and what to do. SOTB2 was tuff too, but I finished it with the "ten pints" cheatmode on (only).

Rick Dangerous 2 was kinda tuff for a while.

I do recall Project X being a difficult one. It just had a hard edge.

Oooh I guess I have to agree with you. It was a cool game though (with a cool intro)!

Have to be "Escape from Colditz". I never managed to do anything, and always got lost and then shot..

Possibly the original version had a map along with it, but ofcourse my cracked version didn't :roll:

Hoya!

Yesh, I remember Daley Thompson's Supertest, had it on my CPC! ;-) My mates and I liked it a lot, moreover it was FAR more playable than Konami's Hypersports...

Risky Woods is hard as hell, indeed. As you said too many enemies ALL the time...
Same thing for Ghosts and Goblins! ;-) Boy, THIS is a classic, isn't it?

Actually, from what I have heard, Dragon's Lair was not that hard. You just have to push the joystick at the RIGHT moment... ;-P

Oh! Another one pops up into my mind...

KATAKIS (or DENARIS)!!!!!! A cool R-Type clone, yes, but barely playable too...

Some more? ;-)

Hehey! I agree. That game gave me the creeps every time I was in a "restricted area". The game is also responsible for my biggest dissapointment in my gaming history...
After a long time playing it, I collected a uniform so I could pose like a guard.
Well, it didn't stop the real guards from checking me and asking for certification papers. So I was busted.
Then, another time I played, I collected the uniform again AND I found certification papers! "Haha, try get me NOW, suckers!" I thought. Ofcourse I was checked again when I was in the open yards and I gave them the papers (for some reason they took the papers), and then what do you know.. ONE meter, ONE second after checking me the first time taking my papers, they stopped me again! Who the hell thought that "we'll program the guards to keep nagging the player if he wears a guard's uniform."?? Ofcourse I was busted, and my spirit sank to a new low :)

I'd like to hear if anyone ever got out of that place! And how, obviously :)

BTW: Logical is pretty tough when you get far enough.

Space Ace, too darn fast paced for me, but a crazy good game for the time!

Disposable Hero, a shoot-em-up in the horizontal scroller genre. I found that game to be absolutely too hard for me, disappointingly so. The graphics were great, tho.

Edit: Tried it on my WHDLoad now, and whatta heck! It's not hard at all. What was I thinking..

Virus for me. I'm sure I made it to level 3 or 4 once, before doing the usual inverted flip and thrusting myself in to the ground at breakneck speed :)

I'm sure more practice may have produced better results.

I'll add another vote for Shadow of the Beast 2. DERN! That was a hard game! Thankfully I have plenty of hair or I'd have been bald by the time I was out of college from all that I pulled out playing that game. It certainly was beautiful for its time, though. Wonderful parallax scrolling and artfully drawn sprites. Psygnosis were just masochistic. (I actually still have notecards with the solutions to some of the puzzles on them).

Hardest game ever? Oh man. That would have to be the C= Installer.
