Yeah, Virus was damn hard because of the control sensitivity and the fact that aiming the gun was a bee-atch.

Getting the hovercraft off the ground was easy enough, but trying to out manoever and shoot down one of those pesky fighters was an object lesson in patience. Imagine sitting on the door sill of your car, steering with your foot and trying to reverse park and you have some idea.

There's quite a few games with nasty control settings... Trying to get your Cobra Mk III to dock with a space station for the first time in Elite was more hazardous than actual combat, getting your Lightning to land in Jet Pilot was equally difficult and of course we have Whirligig. Imagine Virus set in space, with extra sensitive mouse controls... Grrr!

Hoya!

Yeah, Whirligig!
I had it on my ST and was quite good at it.
Then, some times ago I got it on Ammy and... EEEEEKKKKK! I cannot manage to control the damn ship! But I believe it is quite original a game.

And there is another classic I had on ST and was quite good at it, then got it on Ammy and EEEEKKKK!

Space Harrier!
On Atari, I reached the very last boss but did not kill it, will on Ammy, I keep on struggling to go past the first couple of levels. Should try harder I guess...

There is also another game which was incredibly hard, but not on Ammy, on CPC. It was a Mastertronic classic called The Last V8! IIRC, it was released on Speccy and C64 too.
Boy, you had only ONE life to finish the game! Eeek!

And by the way, have someone really finished ANY of the Turricans WITHOUT cheating???

Be funky

Well just to pick one game would be ... difficult :-D

My votes go for :

* Saint Dragon (the 3rd(?) level was impossible to avoid the rocks coming from above and bellow !)

* Shadow of the Beast 2 (good gfx does not make a good game)

* Shadow of the Beast 1 (it was also damn tough)

Bloody Hell! I forgot Saint Dragon!!!!!

Boy, THAT is a hard game!!! I managed to go to the third level something like TWO or THREE times?
Too bad, for it is a nice game, I love the music but it seems it is of the weird Sales Curve format... Unrippable :-/

@AntonioX

You DID finish all Turricans??!!!! Wow! Hats off!

As for the Disposable Hero cheat mode... Hehehe, I do not remember it, BUT if you use the WHDLoad installer for it, you can access the cheat mode through icon info ;-)

@AntonioX on Turrican

Uhm, Turrican II isn't really the hardest game ever made. I usually have about 25-30 lives when I complete the game. Good times, I don't waste a life. Bad times, I waste about 3-4 lives.

In my first post, I told you about Myth but no one seemed to agree.

So, is it me or is this game hard as hell?

Whirligig was a very promising game, but way too hard to control. The actual pace of the game was too fast I think. Has anyone ever played Conqueror? It's like Virus/whirligig but with a tank instead of a hovercraft.

The Last V8.... "V8. Return to base immediately!" I have a Sid file of the soundtrack somewhere.

Turrican II wasn't that difficult a game to master, I've completed it many times without cheating.

Yes, I remember Conqueror, even if I have never played it.

As for the Last V8... Believe me or not but despite the fact I own more than 545 albums, this sountrack is one of my favourite melodies EVER! Absolutely fantastic!


Hey, what about another thread? What is your favourite Amiga soundtrack? ;-D

They even sent out the solution on a paper telling you where to put your feet and when to move where and you STILL had no chance of not dying! Should have had unlimited lives. On the other hand, I think Myst should have been outlawed. How the hell can anyone be expected to recall which sound was playing when you moved a dial three miles back? Stupid freaking game even after I bought a walk-thru and cheated my way thru to the end.

Lol, did not know for Dragon's Lair. Hehehe...

As for Myst, even if the game is difficult, I like its atmosphere very much. Looks like a Pink Floyd video ;-)

How can so many think that Shadow of the Beast 1 was so hard. That was my first favorite computer game in my life. And I complete it before I was 7 years old. It was no big deal becase you get unlimeted life after you killed the first boss in the Tree Level.

But this game disepared in the shadows of my second favorit game in life Another World (Out of the world). This game is still one of the best I played in life.

But, by the way, I think Its strange that no one thinks Sierras adventure games are the hardest. I mean the Space Quest,King Quest and Larry games that you had to tape in all the time. And it was hard to see things on that screen. It can't be harder then that, I think.

I agree, Alien Breed 2 was extremely tough. I find it a huge challenge to get through the 1st level with more than 1 life remaining.

Another really hard game was D/Generation (if anyone remembers it that is...). You began on the 80th floor and had to get to the 90th floor, and the toughest bits were the C/Generations which could disgise them selves as anything then come alive and decapitate you when you walked past them, and you could only kill them with a bomb.

Although I know this game, I have never played it...

Another game comes to my mind...

Karate Kid 2.
Quite tough, isn't it? The first couple of guys are quite easy to defeat but the other ones are terminators!!!
