I Wanna Be The Guy: The Movie: The Game is a sardonic loveletter to the halcyon days of early American videogaming, packaged as a nail-rippingly difficult platform adventure. Players fill the role of The Kid, a youthful, vaguely Megaman-esque protagonist on a quest to become The Guy. This inscrutable plot, however, is just a vehicle for a wide variety of inventive, well-designed and frustrating jump-and-shoot challenges that pay homage to many of the games you loved as a child. The ever-fragile Kid explodes in a shower of red pixels at the slightest brush from the game's many obstacles, from traditional spikes and bottomless pits to more unconventional killers, such as plantlife and puzzle pieces.

Using a multiroute layout not unlike a Metroidvania, the game grants a degree of deadly exploration, without those extraneous upgades meant to make life easier. The game provides players with a choice in terms of their deathrate, thanks to a variable difficulty setting that changes the number of save points from frequent to nonexistent. IWBTG is open to all players; knowledge of videogaming history is optional, and may not help against the frequently ironic and always sadistic deathtraps located herein. And so, the question is left up to you...

Do YOU have what it takes to be The Guy?


Play it and weep. Then play it some more. Fight off the suicidal thoughts and play some more. Be awesome. Beat the hardest game out there.

Something bad happened in Paxia? I did it.
This game will either fill you with sadistic joy, bring you to child-like tears and tantrums or make you quit in disgust.

I think the farthest I've gotten was the third screen from the top route, the one with the clouds and stuff.

Goro was admitted to the hospital after the incident, and was pronounced paralyzed from the neck down. In 2016, he was outfitted with a prototype robotic replacement body. He quickly conquered the world through superior firepower.

All hail our robotic overlord, King of the World, Gorobei.

Wuss.

I made it past a few bosses, I think the boxer and... was it Donkey Kong? It's been some time since I've played it. I just suddenly remembered it and thought "Why not post it and make other people scream in agony?".

I should really play it again.

I've heard about this game, but I've never played it. Saw a few videoes and it looks freaking hard.

It's even harder as it looks, but very rewarding. You don't get a sense of accomplishment like this in any other game. If you beat this game you really can pat yourself on the back.
