A general topic where peeps can express their opinions without having to necro a 5 year old thread. Give praise or vent your frustrations about games that were released eons ago. Spoilers are okay; just warn the reader it's coming. So I'll start...
I just completed Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure and oh my god what the hell was I thinking?! This is, by far, the hardest game I've ever played. It may seem like a simple platformer with a Puzzle League style puzzle game attached to the bottom screen, but no, it is not. Halfway through this game, around World 3, there is a difficulty spike unlike any I've ever encountered. And it only gets worse from there. By the time I hit World 5, the difficulty was dialed up to 11 and I was stuck on 5-1 for quite a while. Each level after that was hell on earth and that's coming from a diehard platform gamer.
Near the end of the game, there were pit falls everywhere and an enemy placed on every platform I could jump to. Each level had about 2 to 4 "murder rooms" where I could not progress until I killed every enemy that spawned on the screen. Eventually, there were throwing waves of brutes at Henry and with him maxed out, he barely did any damage to them. I was constantly switching between screens to power up secondary weapons, regain health or I'd desperately attempt to fill it for "Tea Time!". It was brutal. All it took was one mistake to screw up.
This is probably the first game I've enjoyed but could never, ever recommend to anyone. And I'm technically not finished since I recently discovered that secret levels exist that are the hardest in the game. Harder than all that hell I went through... NO. Just, no. Well, maybe. Later. Two years from now. I hate you.
