Wow. That is fantastic. I could believe that this was the real reason for him being so pissed off that day.
This should not be as funny as it is.
Oh god that fucking level... OH I'M SO ANGRY NOW--
Be glad you never made it to the snakepit, swimming, or unicycle levels.
The key is to keep your bike as close to the middle as you can, so you don't have to move very far up and down.
Don't tell me that like I'm a goddamn amatuer -- I DID that -- AAAAARGH!!!
playing this game honestly results in sheer frustration.

If I ever meet any of the people responsible for Battletoads, I'm going to do something to them that will land me in court.
|Wonko the Sane |
O'Reilly deserves some respect for even reaching that level.

Maybe there is a little Battletoads in each of us.
I was actually rooting for Papa Bear there at the end, and I hate that guy and hope he dies of cancer of the entire body.

Is BattleToads eviler than BillO? Yes, yes it is.
You know, all they really had to do was give you unlimited continues and not start you over every time you died, and this game might have been enjoyable.
The fact that they released over half a dozen versions and sequels over as many years and never once made that change proves that they actively hated your fucking guys.

I think they're just misunderstood. They were trying to make a point about existence. Because in a way, aren't we all just Battletoads struggling for that one shining moment? There's no continues in life my friend, you can't have everything... and if you ever beat the game, the controller would release euthanasia gas.

I once played Battletoads with unlimited lives and a skip to the last level (thank you game genie) and still couldn't beat it; I couldn't even get to the Dark Queen and lose.
Battletoads is the Zen Koan of gaming.
As a small kid I had a friend who beat Battletoads.
He probably makes a living demolishing high-rises with his bare fists now.
Like O'Reiilly, Battletoads was the subject of a massive marketing campaign designed to trick people into thinking it wasn't evil.
Am I the only one who beat this game? Seriously, I don't remember it being that tough. Now the original pre-arcade TMNT game, THAT was fucking impossible.
Agreed. Remember Shadowgate?
i beat ninja turtles, it wasn't that hard. this was stupid hard, though. i met a guy once who claimed he beat it and described each level. oddly, not autistic.
TMNT was conceivably beatable. I probably could have, but just got too bored and frustrated with it. The technodrome levels were a total bitch, and you had to play through 2 hours of game just to get another crack at them. The game just wasn't fun or rewarding enough to bother. Battletoads gave you the ILLUSION that it could be totally awesome if you just beat the bullshit parts.
Still, the most impossible game ever goes to Super Ghouls n Ghosts.

What!? Man, my friends and I worked out every single scripted monster appearance, every treasure chest location, and how to make every jump and learn every bosses attack pattern.
When we finally beat it, we did it all over again.
Battletoads is hard as fuck, but it was no Ninja Gaiden
But Ninja Gaiden didn't turn into impossible bullshit until the very last level.
IS THIS BATTLETOADS?
Battle toads is the only game that has ever made me scream and throw a controller at the TV.
I love battletoads. My friends used to call me over to their houses to beat this level so they could play the rest of the game. The problem is, most of the rest of the game is like this.
Finally, Bill and I have some common ground.
I got past this crazy jet-bike level, but died on the next level and just never had the heart to try again.
|Magical Man from Happy-Land |
man I saw exactly where this was going the whole time from the very beginning and I still laughed
Yep. THats the level that killed me.
Oh god, that game. That game. That was so damn hard to play. I want to fund Caminante's attempt to harm the makers of that game.
