Hi guys! Happy new year!
There are many types or genres of games or video games. For game lovers, a game is not only a pastime, but also a part of their life. In fact, many have taken the profession as a professional gamer.
But did you know, among the millions of games that exist, it turns out that there are several types or game titles that have a difficulty level that doesn’t make sense, it even feels impossible to play it. These are 5 game titles that have an absurd level of difficulty.
- Contra (NES)
If your childhood played Contra on the old Nintendo (NES) console, then that is a sign that you are old. Contra is a game released by Konami which was released for Nintendo in 1987.
Actually this game is quite simple, players have to complete missions from one point to another and keep moving forward (old school 2D view). What made it absurd was the number of bullets fired by the enemy, it could spread out almost a full screen. In addition, if a player is left behind, he will die from being dragged by the edge of the screen behind him.
- Weaponlord (Sega Genesis)
Weaponlord is a fighting game that uses weapons. This 1995 game was quite phenomenal in its day, not because of the graphics, but because of the difficulty level.
Gameplay that is difficult to make the characters we play are also difficult to move. Not infrequently gamers are angry because they often experience defeat just because of very bad controls.
- Dark Souls Series
It is not without reason that the Dark Souls series is considered the most difficult multiplatform game ever made. The developer of this game deliberately made Dark Souls a very difficult game, and if possible it couldn’t be finished.
Many PC gamers are frustrated playing Dark Souls. A mission in this RPG game is not a mission like most missions in other RPG worlds, you will really get annoyed and dizzy in completing it. Have you ever played this game without getting killed? If so, then you are a god and maniac of Souls series, salute!
- Silver Surfer (NES)
If you are frustrated with Dark Souls, then don’t even try Silver Surfer which was released for NES in 1990. This game is the hardest and most annoying superhero game ever made.
Not only enemies can make the hero die, but also a little nudging the ground can make your silver hero die on the spot. Really, the Silver Surfer made for the NES is a disaster for you, so don’t even try it!
- Mike Tyson’s Punch Out
Who tries to enjoy playing this game? It’s been difficult, the gameplay is also inconsequential! Just imagine, if we want to defeat the enemy, then we have to hit the target 5-20 times. However, if the enemy attacks us, then just 2-3 times beating, our hero will be knocked out immediately.
Really unfair, right? That is why this boxing game has also been named as one of the games that are considered impossible to beat, as if it was deliberately made to stress us out! Now available a game like Mike Tyson’s Punch Out which was launched on android called Prizefighters. You can try playing this game if you want to reminisce.
Unlike Punch Out, Prizefighters players are given the opportunity to name their boxers, as well as the ability to customize their appearance. There’s a fair amount of customization here. Starting from skin color, hair color, hair color, beard, mustache, boxing gloves color, pants color, and shoe color.
As already mentioned, the player starts from the lowest rank, which is the 30th rank. He must try to beat the 29 other boxers who are higher in rank in order to finally reach the first rank. Players can challenge boxers who have similar rankings, and if they succeed in defeating them, they will win the ranking from that boxer.
At the time of the boxing match, all of the game control was purely using a modern touch screen, not using a virtual gamepad. The player has four areas to touch, upper left and upper right to punch the head using the left and right hands, and lower left and lower right to punch the body. To dodge (dodge) the attack, players only need to do a swiping left or right. And, to do the lower blocking, players just need to do a swiping from top to bottom to block below, and swipe from the bottom to the top to do top blocking.
Apart from these basic moves, there are also powerful punches that can be made once the player has gathered power. You do this by touching and holding the touch in the position you want to hit. This can be done if the boxing glove icon at the bottom of the screen is filled, and the punch is guaranteed to be fatal if it hits the opponent.
But, that doesn’t mean you can play it carelessly, because there is a stamina meter that decreases every time your boxer hits. If this stamina runs out, the player will not be able to move for a while until the stamina is back up. It is very important to pay attention to the use of stamina so that unwanted things do not happen. A little obstacle might be the touch system control which is arguably not very accurate, especially when trying to dodge and block.
Every time you beat your opponent, players will get prizes in the form of money and experience which can be used to upgrade stats and choose unique skills. In the end, the boxer will have unique stats according to the way the player wants to play.
The cartoon graphics used by Prizefighters are very charming. All the boxers present in this game are randomly generated, so no two games can have the same opponent. Even so, they do not have a unique charisma, because all of them more or less have the same animation, unlike Punch Out with its unique characters. Even so, every punch that hits the opponent is very strong, and their Knock Out animation is always interesting to watch.
Prizefighters is available free-to-play which is completely free from the obstacles that usually haunt free-to-play games. There are no annoying advertisements, no stamina system, nor does it require an Internet connection at all to play. There are very few microtransactions to buy money, that’s all.
For those of you who want a clone of Punch Out, maybe you will feel disappointed with the unmemorable characters in Prizefighters. However, this game takes a few elements from a boxing simulation like Fight Night. So, you could say, the game is somewhat semi-realistic, but is packed with fun arcade-style games. But, for fans of Punch Out, Prizefighters is arguably a derivative game from Punch Out which is suitable to be played on your smartphone.
So how about it, have you tried all these difficult games? Don’t get stressed, OK!
