Have you ever experienced playing games so hard that you needed cheat codes for every level? Yes, we’ve all been there trying to beat a game that was probably impossible to beat unless you’re more than an expert level gamer or have some premium cheats up your sleeve.
Without further ado, here are the top 5 games that are almost impossible to beat:
Anyone remember that annoying game where a bird has to jump over a set of pipes that come in different sizes? Yes, that’s known as Flappy Bird, and it’s known as one of the most difficult games to play.
How come? It’s simply because the touch mechanism is very sensitive. How high or low you jump depends on how hard you tap the screen. Thus, if you accidentally tap the screen hard when you should have tapped it soft, you’ll hit a pipe and lose.
Ikaruga got a reputation for being one of the best retro shooter games simply because of its overall game experience. It’s known for its beautiful mix of colors as well as a bullet-laden screen. You’ll find it especially difficult to dodge all the lasers, bullets, and special power-ups thrown at you while shooting the enemy down. You have to be very precise if you don’t want to have an early death here.
Super Mario: The Lost Levels
This was a part of the Super Mario Bros package wherein there was a collection of Super Mario games 1, 2, 3, and the Lost Levels. The Lost Levels was considered the hardest of the four because of its very difficult stages. While it may be easy at the start, you’ll be changing your mind once you get further in the game.
In fact, it was too difficult that they had to recall it from the Western market and replace it with an easier game. That became known as the strange looking Super Mario 2 wherein all the bosses are pink lizards that shoot out eggs. Eventually, the game was released as Super Mario: The Lost Levels as a part of the collection.
If you thought F-Zero X was hard, F-Zero GX is crazy! There’s a multitude of reasons why this game is so hard. For one, we’ve got the speed. While all F-Zero games are fast-paced, this one ups the level by making the gameplay ultra fast. Add the brutally difficult levels and you’ll have a game almost impossible to beat – unless you keep on practicing, or use cheat codes on this matter.
Super Meat Boy
In Super Meat Boy, you have to avoid all the spikes, swords, chainsaws, and blades if you want to live. The problem is, you’re not given much room to avoid all those things. You have to be extra skilled and meticulous if you want to beat the game. After all, it’s a game of all or nothing.
These are some of the games that have made even the manliest of men tear up. Do you know any more brutally difficult games that are impossible to beat? Leave a comment below.
