Add ninja gaiden to that list. If you don't know what you're doing you are bound to get killed a lot.

Yeah I couldn't get past some cliffs in stage 3 or something IIRC, but then I watched videos of the game and realized it's possible to kill enemies when jumping.


Also add the Zelda series to that list, especially the 1st.

I got to act 4 this morning and I finally got to hear the famous 4-2 music (cut short by the death sound a couple of times though.) I did not get further than 4-3. The boss was not too difficult it seems, but I decided to end my game early because I feel ill today.

I never tried any TMNT game (in North America, it's called Tennage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but people usually just say Ninja Turtles or Tortues Ninja) other than the TMNT2:The Arcade Game before, but I must say they were not easy indeed. Also TMNT2 was one of my favorite NES game as kid.

Eiyeron is refering to the first TMNT game on the NES, and I'd say yea, it was pretty difficult (though the dam level wasn't that bad imo). I think we should do top 15 here so the poll doesn't get too long. That means there's space for two more entries in the poll.

If you still want to discuss difficult NES games feel free to. There are plenty that are difficult, but in a good way. However, there a plenty more that are difficult do to bad design, bugs etc, so feel free to drag them through the mud here. :D

Yeah we should only add games that are hard but still well made. Many are hard due to terrible collision detection, but the good games are usually hard due to the way lives are handled. For example, in Ghosts N Goblins, you die in two hits and even if you die at the end of the level, you restart all the way to the beginning.

How about Dragon's Lair or Cobra Triangle ?

I've heard Dragon's Lair on NES is notoriously difficult, but that it's largely due to bad design and terrible controls. Cobra Triangle could probably be added. Most Rare titles are fairly difficult. :)

*edit*Added Cobra Triangle. Also added Gradius/Life force as the last poll option. :)
