    Welcome denizens of GBAtemp, I hereby present with you a challenge!
    Surely you people have heard of or seen those "impossible" games. You know the ones.
    Based off of Megaman where breathing gets you killed!

    Well, I recently found one where the design concept was...well, from his FAQ...
    Behold!
    I Wanna Be The Guy

    Test your skill! Test your patience! Test your SANITY!

    Good luck folks, you'll surely need it.

    Protip: Most of the time, the obvious will get you killed.

    -------------------------------------------

    Gameplay notes:
    Left shift - Jump
    z - Shoot

    You have lots of air control and can double jump, even when falling.
    Only 4 bullets may be on screen at a time.

    Default difficulty is Hard. (Medium-Hard-Harder-Impossible)
    I urge you all to start on Impossible to get the most out of the game...unless it's driving you insane anyway.
    Difficulty only affects how many save points are around.

    The game itself is not yet completed...but the final version should be up by the time you get to the current end anyway. =P

    Seriously, this game really is impossible...

    Took the upper path huh?

    Those large clouds double as platforms, be quick to react.First is stationary, second moves down, last two move up, be quick to react.

    [EDIT]

    Protip: Use your pew pew gun to find fake walls and such.

    thanks for the help but...
    "last two move up". If the first one (the one that's on the right) moves up how am I supposed to get to the one that's on the very left part of the screen?
    I got killed twice already [​IMG] damn

    Haha, you can do your double jump while falling.
    Fall off the right side of the first one that moves up. Double jump to the far left one. Careful about the surprise at the end, be quick to react. =P

    [EDIT]

    Before any tears are spilt, shoot the save boxes to save (they turn green)

    alright, I wasted almost an hour on this... but this is getting too annoyingly hard. Could've been funny nonetheless...
    or maybe I should've used the "medium" mode.

    Medium mode essentially grants a save point after every hard obstacle. If you want to play to beat it, then yes, I suggest medium mode.

    Your character is branded a "wuss" and wears a pink hair ribbon though. XD

    [EDIT]

    So far I've found a lower, upper, and left path. If nothing else, this game is pretty big. Plenty of reason to reply if only to explore.

    [EDIT2]

    Ooooookay, the upper left path leads to a Game Over room where the only way to die is to suicide (Q) or fall off the cloud. Guess it's a dead end. XD

    [EDIT3]

    The upper upper path... [​IMG]
    At least I don't see any tricks with it...it's just hard. XD

    Wow I must be really bad at this game because I can't for the life of me figure out what to do in the second room....

    I drop down the hole from the first room and shoot/jump whatever nothing helps and I end up in the spikes. [​IMG]

    Anybody wanna give me a hint?

    Hard?
    Have a look at this.



    Also, how the hell do you get past the second screen whenever you take the bottom route? I've been at it for over half an hour but I cant seem to get it.

    Mushihimesama Futari has the best shmup OST I've ever heard. That song in particular is incredible.
