Title: Running Count of People that Have Become The Guy
Post by: FYNDR on December 14, 2007, 01:53:26 pm
I think that we should somehow come up with a system by which we can determine how many people have bested The Guy, mostly so that I can say stuff like "I am one of x people that have become THE GUY" at fancy dinner parties. At any rate, it would be interesting and after 100 people made it we could have, I dunno, cake or something.

Right now, the running tally is: 657.

The actual number of people who have beaten the game may be higher than this, but I cannot get an accurate count unless all those who have defeated the guy post here to confirm the numbers. Please note that I may have accidentally miscounted, so if any of you notice a discrepancy between the count and the actual numbers, please notify me via PM (EDIT: FYNDR is no longer updating this thread. If you see a mistake, send a PM to SilentLoner (http://kayin.pyoko.org/iwbtg/forums/index.php?action=profile;u=10006) instead). To make things more interesting, post how you reacted when you beat the game and/or how much you hate, hate, HATE The Guy's giant head form, or whatever else you feel is relevant or awe-inspiring.

I beat The Guy.  I don't really hate the giant head.  What I really hate are the white homing shinies of doom that can suck my balls.

Yeah.  What I like about the final form is that it'd be so much easier if Kayin removed any one aspect of it - the fire on the ground, the spikes in the mouth, the homing white globs, and the fireballs all combine to make it one hell of a challenge.

You can += 1 to that tally. Heh I was kinda hoping you were able to use The Guy's gun even though The Kid probably couldn't hold it properly.

Until I reached the third pattern, I didn't even notice the area at the top. I used a safe spot to get past the second pattern. After I took out the giant head I kept on my guard and barely blinked through the credits 'til the very end. I kinda regret doing that now for some reason. I think I like sudden shocks, 'cause I enjoyed the little surprise at the end of Maximum Carnage for the SNES. Then after that, my next thought was to try a Very Hard clear.

my reaction to beating the guy was THAT WAS SO MUCH FUCKING EASIER WHEN HE'S NOT SHOOTING HIS SPINNING MACHINE GUN LASER BEAM EYES DURING HIS FINAL FORM.  ALSO STOP SLACKING OFF AND FINISH THE REST OF THE ENDING.

Now that I'm thinking about it, I'd much rather see the spinning machine gun rather than the burning floor, even if it is harder.

I beat The Guy. I actually didn't have any trouble with the spinning fire attack. I start on the left, then proceed right across the floor, up the right wall, across the ceiling, and drop down to the floor again. I haven't died once while doing that. The attacks that follow it were the biggest problem for me.

I beat the Guy.  The spinning machine guns took me the longest, and still kill me the most frequently on subsequent tries.

hahaha no, this was spinning machine gun WITH burning floor.

Needless to say, I never beat him while activating this glitch, and eventually realized that my own skills were causing me grief.  Basically, at first, you could shoot The Guy's eyes while the machine gun lasers were spinning.  If you knocked out both of them before he completed the rotation, it went straight to his third form, burning floor and all, and the lasers kept turning.  It wasn't until I STOPPED killing the hell out of his eyes during that phase that I realized I'd been doing it wrong the entire time and Kayin wasn't just fucking with me.

I've beaten The Guy twice now, once in both versions. The story behind that: I beat him in the slomo version first (after dying like a billion times), but because my computer is so fucking ancient, the credit sequence was slowed so much that the screen stopped scrolling before it was supposed to, causing The New Guy (formerly The Kid) to walk offscreen to his death. After learning that this was actually a glitch and not just one last "Haha, fuck you" moment, I went and beat The Guy again (after another billion deaths) in the frame skip version, earning the proper credit sequence. So I'm now The Guy Times 2!

I just became The Guy a few minutes ago after several hours and I really don't want to know how many deaths. The machine gun attack I didn't really have a problem with since what I did was start on the very left then jump down and run to the right after phase 4 and as soon as he begins talking start running back left and jump back up and every time the attack just goes in front of you. Unfortunately, because of this I never noticed the platform at the top and nearly went insane trying to figure out how to hit his second eye in phase 6 and then felt really stupid (and relieved) when I realized how. On a side note, was anyone else terrified of something killing The Kid before the credits could finish? I was constantly smashing all the buttons while the credits rolled.

Post by: MetaSeraphim on December 27, 2007, 05:37:22 pm
I've beaten the guy a total of 4 times I got better thru each playthru, once on wuss mode which I died countless times on, then on hard mode which I did a little better the number of my deaths was only in the triple digits, then on very hard mode only the double digits this time which made happy. lol

Then finally on impossible mode, this game is good at crushing your ego....but you haven't had it crushed untill you make it to the final boss, get to his final form and get one hit away from killing him and die right there.

I finally beat impossible mode, after 6 days of non-stop trying.

I'm very serious, it wasn't non-stop playing tho, I did have to take breaks for eatting, sleeping, etc, etc, etc.

I'm still not sure how exactly how I did it, all I know is it costed me my sanity, and maybe my soul.

BTW, great game you made, I can't wait to see what the finished version of it is like. Any idea when it will be released?

No clue. It won't just be a released 'HEY GUYS FULL VERSION' deal as much as it will be just general slow polishing and additions.

Also holy shit thats amazing. Did the ending generate a save file? I haven't even considered what would happen.

Nope, after the ending I looked to see if anything changed and there was nothing but a blank file, the game just ended like it always does.

But yeh, I'm taking a long break from IWBTG, as it definately owned me greatly. I'm afraid to consider doing it again on hard, or even worse, veryhard/impossible.

I became the Guy a few days ago. hooray for Christmas break and some time to actually play the game after the new content was released and finals were over.

With the exception of the glitches on the final boss (spinning machine guns, etc), it's one of the best boss fights I've seen. I didn't like the glass killing you when it breaks. haha. good stuff, though.

Post by: Wyatt on December 30, 2007, 06:42:50 pm
I've finally become the guy: after countless attempts to slay former the guy, I booted up the exe today and killed him first try. Actually, I died right after I'd gotten the last shot in on him, but the game apparently still considers that a victory.

Game beaten on hard mode 'cause medium is for wusses (I never even tried playing it), and very hard is overly sadistic (What's the big idea not leaving in the save point next to the active missile after Mecha Birdo? I think it's impressive enough of a feat to get past two anulled save points, leaving a boss at the end, without dying; forcing the player to do a random timing challenge that's almost impossible to succeed at without repeating it is just unnecessary).

I can safely say that I haven't gotten this much enjoyment out of a game since Cave Story. Level design was brilliant; I didn't think I could ever die so much at the same stuff over and over without flipping out. Good job, Kayin, at programming a great game, and good luck for any that you decide to make in the future.

Post by: Jish on December 30, 2007, 07:08:26 pm
I have become The Guy on Hard Mode, and I'm working on Very Hard now. I have the first six bosses beaten, and have recorded all of it so I can put it up on youtube.

While I'm on the subject, I think Very Hard needs some reworking. The stretch from the Ghosts n Goblins segment to Birdo's red orb thing is ridiculously hard, yet nothing else has posed THAT much of a challenge.

If you're taking suggestions, I think you should put the save point before Birdo back in, but keep the one in the missile room afterwards out. And there are a few other save points that could be removed for added challenge without making it too terrible. For example...

- The screen with the little pond you have to jump into after the Tyson fight
- Room of Divine Transport
- The cloud screen (the second one on the upper path)
- The "oh sweet god" room with all the spikes and the slowly moving platform (this one is debatable, but there is a save in the room immediately afterwards that SHOULD stay, so...)
- The screen after the really long disappearing blocks segment (which leads to the Palace warp)

There might be a couple in the Palace that are up for criticism, but I haven't gotten there yet.

Post by: MetaSeraphim on December 31, 2007, 02:10:58 am
I was thinking of something like a save point at the very end ( after the apple XD) I would try to beat it again, the only reason I beat it the first time was from 10% of my gaming skill and 110% luck, there were so many MANY many times when I came so close to dying and the only thing that saved me was dumb luck. XD
Title: Re: Running Count of People that Have Become The Guy
Post by: MetaSeraphim on December 31, 2007, 03:41:42 am
But you know I wondered then and still wondering now why didn't it make a save file like it does on normal games?

Oops, sorry about the double post, I didn't see the edit button.
Title: Re: Running Count of People that Have Become The Guy
Post by: Wyatt on December 31, 2007, 03:00:22 pm
I'm going to support most of Jish's suggestions, even though they seem to be going in anyways. I thought the same thing for each one of those save points I reached.

I'm going to have to disagree, however, with putting in the save before birdo, AND with leaving out the one after. Beating Birdo after all the stuff before it gave me an insanely large sense of accomplishment, and honestly, it's not even really that hard. But the save afterwards should still be there, because it's just irritating to have to get through a luck-based challenge when failing means having to go spend a while to get back.
Title: Re: Running Count of People that Have Become The Guy
Post by: Kayin on December 31, 2007, 03:28:31 pm
Maybe I should just standardize the hard saves to be like.. pretty much just before each boss?
Title: Re: Running Count of People that Have Become The Guy
Post by: Wyatt on January 02, 2008, 11:55:17 pm
If saves were only before each boss, it would be hard enough to warrant a whole new difficulty mode (which actually wouldn't be a bad idea). The saves are placed pretty well as they are, they just need minor tweaking. Jish has already covered everything pretty well, so all that really needs to happen is for them to be implemented.

- The cloud screen (the second one on the upper path)

Isn't this one already removed?

- The "oh sweet god" room with all the spikes and the slowly moving platform (this one is debatable, but there is a save in the room immediately afterwards that SHOULD stay, so...)

This one should be implemented regardless of whether or not you take the suggestion I'm about to make. That suggestion is to remove the save at the bottom of the tower, and put the one in the middle of the tower back in.

- The screen after the really long disappearing blocks segment (which leads to the Palace warp)

I'm guessing you didn't know this when you posted, but The Path to The Guy's Fortress has no saves until right before the boss. However, I do agree that those two save points before and after the block room don't both need to be there, so I propose that the one before that segment be removed.

EDIT: Woah, I didn't realize that there was an entire thread about this in the suggestions forum. In order to make this post not a complete waste, I'll mention that I became the guy again, but on Very Hard mode.

I'd also like to note that both times that I did beat the guy, I didn't get his portrait in the bottom right corner. I can't figure out why this is, but I'll note that I dodged the cherry in the end credits both times, and I died after landing the final blow on the guy one of the times.

I became the guy just today, on medium.  ;D

I couldn't get the guy's portrait to show up on my save file though. Do I have to beat it on hard or let the apple hit me in the credits to make it show up? :(

Though almost everything else was, the spinning machine guns weren't that hard, considering it only moves counterclockwise and *especially* considering there's a blind spot on the top where his bullets can never hit.

*Is The Guy*


Although, the game seemed to lose its touch in some sections, such as Mother Brain. It was almost as if your original intention was to make an absolutely unpredictably hard game where memorization was the only key to victory, but later you fell into a more 'hardcore' but fair gameplay style.

i.e. Graveyard vs. Elevator Spike Room

I am now the guy (hard mode).  I nearly restarted on medium quite a few times when I just didn't feel like going through 2+ screens of ridiculous death again before a save.  Every time the kid plopped down with that bow, though, I wouldn't go two blocks before going back to hard.  Heh, nice touch.

Took me a lot longer in the castle of the guy.  I must have hit every debug hotkey on my way through, taking hours to actually realize what I'm doing.  That whole area was spoilertastic, including seeing a brief glimpse of the ending during the elevator ride over and over again.

EDIT

Okay, now I'm the guy on very hard mode too. I find it ironic how much of The Guy I am for being a girl. Woo. Screenshot or it didn't happen, or something. Beaten in RC2, except for the ghouls and ghosts area, where I was nice and masochistic and played the non-testing version. On the bright side, that means I have a mostly accurate death count.

I'd say mabye 450-600 deaths, 1 broken keyboard stand, 5-6 hours spent on the Guy. I got so...so discouraged during this. I kept going downstairs to my friends and procaliming "FUCK the Guy, I'm so over this game" yet 10 minutes after that I would go back upstairs and fail another 80 times. I didn't care about being The Guy anymore yet something inside me made me keep trying. I hated this game so much in my head, I didn't care anymore, but inside...I needed to keep trying. And as of 7:54 PM PST, Sunday, January 27th, 2008. I am... THE GUY [on hard] :)

Beat it twice tonight, so I could see how many ways there were to uh..
: show
to dodge the final cherry, or see if one could shoot it with his gun. I think I spammed all the buttons a bit too much to have figured anything out. Not gonna do it again.


Re: OP, I love The Guy's giant head form. It's his normal form I hate, because it takes so friggin long to kill to get to the giant head form! =(

All night long my friends wouldn't stop trivializing the fact that I beat him, either :P Don't know a good challenge when they see one. Kayin, I love you for making this game, it was the most fun I've had with a video game in a long, long time. I will buy a shirt or two after I make some money, I just bought books for a new semester of college and I still need to buy more =(

Cheers <3

Oops, edit, I did it on medium. I have a very hard save on an old client, I'm working on doing it over again on beta1rc2. The graveyard owns me; I had a lot of trouble with both the spikes moving up and down (the last jump) and timing the jump to the moving platform on the screen above. Just because of those two things, I think I'm going to start over again to hopefully keep my death count down where it ought to be.

Edit 2, I read the thread. The spinning machine gun fire was easy when I finally noticed that
: show
every time he did it he'd fire to the exact same places (after seeing that one stream would always go straight left, one straight down, one straight right, and one straight up). So I found a blind spot on the left edge of the upper platform; the right edge works too. No screenshots, I'm exhausted, description suffices: stand so that the kid is entirely on the platform, cape and gun and all, but as far to one side as he can be.

Yup, I'm finally the guy too. It took me a while though. Getting to the castle wasn't that much of a problem, but the battle against the guy was WAY too hard. I had to see the pattern from the 1st form and later on it was kinda easy, but The last form killed me so many times.. it wasn't even funny anymore =P

When I saw you could get special items (UltraJman), I wanted them too!
So here they are, plus the proof that I've beaten the guy.

I have finally become the guy on hard after dying countless times going for the last eye. Easily the hardest game I've probably ever played, but it still remained fun almost the entire way through (I'll admit The (Former) Guy made me want to cry and put a bit of a damper on my fun-titude, but otherwise it was awesome). Anyways, Excellent® game, congrats.

Unfortunately my death count on Medium is  completely screwed up.  I think I died 61 times trying to get to Tyson.  ;D  The death count is probably well over 1,000 because I literally spent a month straight just trying to beat The Guy alone.   ;D  I may try Very Hard at some point in time.  As for Impossible...

I have become The Guy.  Note, however, that my death counter was acting really strange once I downloaded the new version, and recorded several (three or four) deaths for each actual death.  So, the number of deaths I've had is probably, oh, half what the number suggests, at most.

I've beaten it on Hard and Medium, but I restarted my Medium one so I could practice some parts on my Very Hard run-through.  But Very Hard is... very hard.  So I haven't been playing it much at all...

Today I got mother brain, then went all the way through the guy's mansion. I actually got really freaked out in Lu Bu's room- i'm playing on medium, bowser room was annoying for me...

The official  count is now 94. I think I may have accidentally counted posters that put up multiple beatings of The Guy and stuff like that. I think now that the count is accurate, but be sure to let me know if it isn't.

I'm the guy, but it took 910 deaths. I'm fairly sure most were intentional stress relieving deaths though. That, and I suppose deaths attempting to unbreak saves. I should finish my medium game and see how many less deaths I endure.

I did it! At long last, I am The Guy!
(I didn't take a screenshot since it'd be basically the same as all the others. My death count is bound to be wrong considering I don't save before quitting, and must have racked up hundreds on Former The Guy alone...

I AM THE GUY. Although I'm running an older version of the game, and my save doesn't show that I've beaten The Guy... is this solvable?

Played on hard mode, with a broken death count reading at 404.

As of 5:17 AM on February 22nd, 2008, 100 people have posted here and said that they have beaten The Guy. This post started on December 14th at around noon, so it's been about 2 months and 8 days for the count to go from 0 to 100. Good job, everyone!

Hi guys. I pretty much only registered to be counted as another clear on hard, though I might post abit more than just this.

Laugh at my horrible death-count. >_> Though I'm kinda proud, since I went straight to hard. I did not know the controls at first, so I just suddenly startet the game without knowing anything about anything. (Needless to say, discovering the S-key did more for me than Jesus could do for mankind.)

I'll check around this thread to se if there's anyone else from Norway who have cleared IWBTG on hard. If not, I'll praise myself as the first and only. :3

Downloaded this game 3 weeks ago and finally beat it yesterday on Medium difficulty with a playtime of 6:55:20 and an official death-count of 2915 (which is strange, since I clearly remember having 2912 when reaching The Guy, and I'm pretty sure I died 70 or so times when fighting him...I know this happened to Cloud as well, not certain if it's common). Curiously enough, none of the deaths really frustrated me to the extent where I'd noticably express it, unlike many others.
Anyway, I'm glad to have made it. The first time I heard discussions about this game and saw the screenshots, I didn't believe I could ever possibly beat it. Not after several other people who I know to be good gamers said they couldn't even get past the first few screens, lol. Just got it on a whim with the assumption that I'd immediately delete it after experiencing utter defeat, but watching all the YouTube videos was fun and the game itself got pretty addictive with time. Progressing through the game made me realize that what the people here said was the truth, that none of the sequences is impossible and that after practicing/thinking things through, you can master obstacles you'd never believe to be able to master as a gamer. While I might have used the help a walkthrough here and there, I played through the majority of the game myself.

I have to say, though, that while The Guy was without a doubt the most enjoyable boss in the whole game, he wasn't even remotely as hard as I imagined/perceived him to be. The fight against him is fairly simple once you get the hang of it, and the only really harsh part is, indeed, the 3rd phase of his final form. You have to time your attacks incredibly well in that one, since it's almost beyond human capability to successfully dodge all the projectiles coming at you at that moment, and it gets annoying after having to replay the whole battle numerous times again. Oh well, still a worthy final opponent. On a laughable note, I'm also one of those who happened to die in the exact moment when he fell. I knew that kind of scene from Cloud's vids already, though, so I exploded with joy instead of rage. =)  Also, carefully remembered to avoid the final apple at the very end.

All in all, it was an extremely fun game, and as said, the experience of playing it was definetely worth it, although I might have wasted a few precious hours with repeatedly dying at some places. But that's part of the whole deal, too. I don't plan on playing the game on higher difficulties or anything, as you can clearly see just HOW much I suck (didn't look around here too much and I'm just curious, but did ANYONE actually have a HIGHER death-count than I on Medium and finish it...?).
I'd just like to conclude this long rant with saying that I fully support any sequels or further expansions this game might have in the future, and I look forward to trying them out.

A big Thank You to Kayin and everyone who contributed on creating the game, and of course to you guys and all those who put their playthrough vids on YouTube, as well.


P.S. - I apologize for just bumping in and immediately starting to ramble without introducing myself first, if anyone here has hard feelings about it.

Registered to add 1 more to the list.
Finished with a Death count of 1285 and a playtime of 3:58:30 on Hard. Although thats not counting the hours/100's of deaths that weren't on save due to crashing or me smashing my computer in frustration.

I had the hardest time just getting through his third phase where you have to reflect the bullets, about this time I think my shift key started to go out on me and performing a jump when I needed it the most became more difficult.

I downloaded this game.

16 days, thousands of game crashes, and one save file wipe later, I've become The Guy!
Great, great game. Despite being incredibly evil, it was a really fun game to play. Just the sheer randomness of it all. There was something new and different on EVERY single screen of the game, whether it was Ryu, or a plane that appeared from nowhere to blast you to smithereens.
The one complaint I have would be the G&G section. That bit with the moving spikes was just a massive difficulty spike (heh pun). I didn't like that much.
Still, absolutely superb. I've also got all 6 of the secret items!  :kid:
I'll have to do this on hard at some point.

#118 here.  Loved the game.  It's definitely a favorite now.  I doubt I'll go back and play it again because I hated the last boss.  I got to The Guy and ended up postponing my becoming-of-The-Guy by a long time.  However, I got a method down for killing him and here I am.   Funny thing is, the game crashed during the credits (http://youtube.com/watch?v=X_HrNWLk4aM).  I went and played the last boss over again, however, so I got to see the ending.  Now I'm just on a quest to get all six of those secret items.  Speaking of which, I have to go make a post in the help thread about the fifth one...

wtf, I just beat the guy but his face isn't showing up on my save file....<___<

edit: I'm really pissed, I beat him 3 times with the same result. Obviously it's the lag...During the cutscene the trees are overlapping and the above cutscenes are never finishing. For example it never shows the snifit with delicious fruit, never shows the Horrible hawks, never shows scrooge mcduck and the metroids and so on. And my guy never even gets past the "HOME" sign. It goes back to the file select before he even gets home...Could someone give me a save with completing the game. >>

(Yes, that's 2831 deaths there. Probably about 300 of them during the final fight, and 300-400 against Mother Brain. And I still loved it. The 2nd save was just made to show the Tetris level to a friend xD But I might replay this in Hard, eventually)


That was one of the best games I've ever played. It was just brilliant. I didn't really get frustrated (Except a few times I nearly killed The Guy or Mother Brain, but failed), and had a lot of fun. Awesome job, Kaiyin ^^

Thank you for this challenge, Kayin. I enjoyed becoming one of the few...
~THE GUYs~

I gotta say the minecart portion was the best part of the game, despite its many glitches~
The hardest part of the game for me was the Metroid section... literally over 1,000 deaths came from defeating Mother Brain.
Although now that I have beaten the game, I forget how I came to find out about it! Oh well.

Here's the proof:

There. I am. The Guy. Didn't find any of the secrets. Don't care. I am now going to delete this game and pretend it never existed, and if I ever feel the urge to play it again I'll just smash my head off the wall for an hour. It'll be just as painful but at least it won't take as long.

Seriously though, Kayin? You are a truly fantastic level designer and if you ever decide to create a game that people want to play to completion because it's fun rather than out of a combination of sheer bloody-mindedness and masochism (although that's only speaking for myself) then I'll be back like a shot. Until then, sayonarra.

Very strange about the death count.

Well on the Very hard run I got through lucky many a time.  When I went through the upper path of Guy Industries Tower, I got the whole thing, including the hellish spike maze in I think 2 tries.

As well as the whole post-Tyson part up until the first very hard GnG save.

A lot of luck, but I'm proud of it.  :D

Wooot. I did it today too.
Actually I beat the guy yesterday after something like 50 tries and was so happy and tired that I rubbed my face then my hands while watching the credits. Then the apple began to drop and my girlfriend asked me if I shouldn't move... My brain was so... "liquidified" that I only had the thought of moving, but I was too late and I've just watched how dumb I died :D
I retried almost 50other times before renouncing and going to sleep.
But today, I beat him after the third try. ^^

Anyway, the SLOWMO is sometimes so slow that it's very difficult to time the pattern, and the FS was so "sharp" that sometimes I die avoiding attacks while I'm just close of it... :-\ Kayin should work on that.

At the end, I had a great fun playing this game, and I'm waiting a IWBTG 2 while trying to beat the Very Hard mode :p


Ps :
-Beaten the game in Medium (yeah I'm a pussy, but i'll do the very hard to be a real guy :p)
-1680 deaths
-7h40m
-Looked at the solution for this parts :
     -How to beat Zangief (because I thought it was buggy)
     -Where Tyson is (But I already tried to jump on the platform with the spikes but I mysteriously died the two times I tried (maybe the FS bug))
     -Where Dracula is (I was ashamed when I saw the solution, because it was so obvious :-[ )
     -How the other people use the pattern to beat the guy (I looked that after I already beaten him, and discovered nothing more than I already do)

Actually, it's pretty easy (I died against it 2 or 3times only). But you have to anticipate this attacks. After 3 or 4fireballs (I don't remember at this moment) the guys take a small pause and launch either the spikes or the flamthrower. If you jump on the walls then quickly climb it and moves on the ceiling, then it's pretty easy to avoid.

I'm almost there on Hard mode.  I'm at the very last save point in the game (bottom of the Final Tower), and I've reached the final room where The Guy is but I've yet to beat him.  Almost got it though I think.

Kinda funny story, though... my friend told me about the game, and at the point he was trying to beat Mother Brain.  i talked to him yesterday after getting through the whole game and getting the secret items and even putting together some maps, and he's now past Mother Brain but is still struggling with getting through the "Guy Industries" building where the couches are, hehe...  poor guy... he'll get it though!

After spending way too much time playing this game, I've finally beaten it.

To the mad genius who made this game:  You have made probably the best example of level design I have ever seen.  The fact that somehow, someway, this game could be beaten is what kept me playing, just to say that I did.  I have also never played a game that made me physically violent towards a computer.  If I ever meet you in real life, I will shake your hand, buy you a drink, then knee you square in the balls.

A few days ago my friend was over and while he was working on his laptop I started a new game in Medium to show him a few parts of the game.  Every time I showed him a part I liked, I wanted to go onto the next part to show him that part as well, and so on and so forth, and before I knew it, I'd beaten the entire game all the way through from start to finish in about an hour.  In fact, according to the game save data, it was exactly an hour.

WAAAAAAAHOOOOOO!

I Am The Guy! Downloaded the game yesterday, played it for about 6  hours straight, on medium cause I didnt want to get completely owned. But I made it through 5 bosses. Came back today and got the next 2 pretty easily. Some obvious hangups at the cart of death.

Then it only took about 3 hours and 500+ runs at The Guy to get all the patterns of each form down to the point where I could get lucky and kill him.

VICTORY! I plan on doing a run on Very Hard next, and getting it on video.

Yes! I finally beat it as well! 10:17:10 with 2002 deaths. I froze up for like 10 seconds in disbelief, then i scrambled to turn on my sound to hear the victory music.  I just came home from school as well, and I was showing it to my parents.  Funniest thing is they were actually proud of me when I told them how few people have beaten it!  Do I need to post a screen or something to prove it? I'll set one up anyways.  Woot! I am the guy!

Hey folks, just bumping in to mention that I've checked all the posts after #100 and updated the count. It was about 6 under, so I think I might have skipped a page by accident when I last revised the count. So, as of this moment, the number of people that have bested The Guy is 161.

If any of you notice a discrepancy between the actual count and what I have as the count, please notify me immediately so I can make it more accurate.

Finally did it today. http://img376.imageshack.us/img376/5814/iwbtgye7.jpg

Was funny game to play and to beat. Only one room on the way to mecha-bird really annoyed me, the one where you need to go to small tunnel which spikes on roof and floor and when you are halfway thru those start to move faster. I almost stopped playing because of that part, luckily I somehow managed to beat it after not playing for few days and got past it. Pretty much the only part in the game which really annoyed me.

Also, after beating 5 bosses, all except mecha-bird, I learned the S can skip the Cutscenes, most of my playtime is due to that, waiting the dracula talk everytime I tried him was really not that fun. :P

But overall, ty for nice gaming experience.

I'm now The Guy. I spent a week of practicing and finally beat it late last night - around midnight. I shouted with joy, and woke up my parents. They weren't very pleased.

I really hate The Guy. I hate him. So much. So very much.

I loved the game though. It inspired me to make my own platformer - I'll upload it when done.

I've just become the guy in Hard (about 1700 deaths).

Anyway, in the end the apple thing didn't happen, it just walked off screen and it returned to the load game screen, and it doesn't show that I've beaten the guy.

It seems I forgot to download the ending file that is in the download section (I remember seeing that and be like "No way I'm going to reach the end of the game". Serves me right I guess).

Guess it time to beat the guy again (I want that picture of him in the load screen).

If that doesn't work, try the frame-skip version. Also...

Hold the E, N and D keys in the final area and you should skip right to the credits, so you don't have to beat the final boss again.

Post by: SilentLoner on April 21, 2008, 07:12:08 pm
Well, it's a pain to fight the final boss again just because the ending messed up, but I suppose it's up to you whether or not you want to skip it.

Well, the first phase of it was easy. So was the spinning machine gun. Maybe the hardest was the second, because of the rapid fireballs and 8 spike salutes of hell. But eventually I got it. I think it was like the 15th time I got to phase three when I beat The Guy

I have finally become The Guy, after a week of going at it.  Never once did I show signs of anger (well, maybe in that god-forsaken fan room...) and kinda just laughed when I died to something stupid.   All in good fun!

http://img161.imageshack.us/my.php?image=iwbtgbeatenpr6.jpg

The death count is a bit off, but I can say that the first save file was me learning wall jumping for the first time.   I kept trying to do it Megaman X style instead of holding shift.   I got better though!  My second go at it I tried the upper path first, and didn't die as much as I thought I would at the GnG part.  I'd say my true death count is somewhere around 400.   A good number of my deaths were from the tower with the bionic commando music... least favorite part of the game to be sure.

I have beat The Guy! Twice now, first time on Hard, then on Medium.

Hardest moments for me: The first part when I first started fighting him O.o.

Spinning laser attack, though it became the easiest part of the fight when I figured out that I can climb up the vine before he shoots the lasers and drop down about a second after he says "I will crush your tiny bones" and completely avoid it with a 0% chance of getting hit.

And then the final form and the white balls of hell. Especially the spikes that he shoots out of his mouth.

VICTORY!!!

Playtime 20:23:10
Deaths: 5945
Bosses Defeated: Mike Tyson, Mecha Birdo, Dracula, Kraidgief, Bowser Wart and Wiley, Mother Brain, Devil Dragon, and The (former) Guy

It has been an incredible journey. At the start the difficulty seemed to be at a point that I could never overcome. After starting to learn how the game worked, and learned that apples could fall up, I defeated Mike Tyson and Mecha Birdo. I then made it to Dracula, who killed me hundreds of times. In the process, I came to the brink of giving up, and began to believe that I would never beat this game. My sanity dropped to dangerously low levels, but I eventually overcame Dracula, and continued forward. After making it through the spike chase, and killing Kraidgief, I began to feel an incredible sense confidence and power. My sanity soared to levels I had never known, and in a seeming invincible charge, I took out Bowser, Wart, and Wiley, and then Mother Brain. With the path to The Guy's Fortress open, I continued onward and bested the minecart section and the Devil Dragon using a level of skill I never knew I could possess.

As I began to make my way through the fortress of The Guy, anxiety began to build. While the sections here were as hard as you would expect from the final area of I wanna be The Guy, and required complete concentration and precision, my thoughts were still preoccupied with the looming specter of the coming conflict with The Guy. I finally made it to him, and began an epic duel of ridiculous difficulty. With practice and persistence, I learend how to defeat his phases one by one, eventually making it to the sixth and final phase. While nothing revolutionarily new was added during this phase, the combination of elements formed a brick wall which halted me in my tracks. I began experiencing flashbacks of Dracula, and wondering once again if this final obstacle was too much, and that I might never beat the game. However, I continued and finally struck the final blow to his final form miliseconds before I was killed by an incoming fireball.

This game has taken me from the lowest depths to the highest hights of emotion, and after dodging the last apple I only have this left to say:


I AM THE GUY!

I don't necessarily have proof that I became the guy (girl). My computer met an unfortunate demise* soon after completion of the game. Mind you, I'm a girl. An OLD one at that. I SUCK at video games. But I DID become the guy (girl) after about 60 hours of playtime and 20,000+ deaths. No, I don't care to repeat the experience for ACTUAL proof. You my count me or not, but I thought it about time to own up to my folly.

*by unfortunate I may mean I was so out of my mind I broke my computer

So, I'm currently the Guy on wuss mode and hard, and half way through on V.Hard.
Tried the Impossible mode once, got to the area just before Kraidgief and died for some reason  Haven't tried it after that. Maybe after double-digit playthru on very hard or something...?

And, METASERAPHIM! Youre freaking awesome! Beating IWBTG on Impossible is way harder than playing golf in space!!

+1 Guy  :D

Time: 8:55:20
Deaths: 1241 ( pretty sure it's at least 200 more, it's been 1241 before I started the final boss)
Difficulty: Hard

I started this game uhhhh a few months ago, when it was still in alpha( I still have that version on my desktop). I got insanely frustrated by the spike room in GnG and I just stopped playing. Then about a week ago, I got bored and booted it again...I discarded my save folder some time ago so I had to get to the GnG part again, and it took me a wooping 20 mins to do about a day's worth of effort before. Then I just worked my way and  persisted again and again.

Feels great to finally be done with this game, one hell of a game I might add. =)

PS. I watched cloud and jman videos, mostly for certain hard parts ( no bosses). I think hearing cloud and jman screaming of frustration calmed myself as I was doing the part they just did in the videos  :P

Hello! After attempting this game for an unreasonable amount of time, I have beaten it! I am (a?) The Guy!

Time: 14:5:0 (Literally failed against The Guy for seven hours straight... It... It was terrible...)
Difficulty: Medium (Hey, I found it rather soothing to have that wuss save point after the moving spikes in the gng level)

Although I am proud to say this time also includes the time it took for me to get all 6 secret items. :)

Time: 04:57:35
Deaths:87
Difficulty:Hard

as for thoughts on the guy he was actually one of the easiest boss' in my opinion but thats probably only because of massive lag,but even without the lag he isnt that hard concidering like most of the other boss' he works with a pattern then theres just the proper timing and such which is also fairly easy to figure out.the part i had most trouble with was mother brain and the tram ride to guy fortress(and both still piss me off at great lengths).

doing it over coz 2500 deaths is just silly, but now im playing on hard, halfway (4 bosses down) and with like 250 death.

but now when i played medium i always saved even thoe i might died 20 times and didnt complete a room. so thats probably why i have so many deaths

I had to beat him again, because I didn't get the full ending or boss rush. I beat him on slow mo again, then frame skip, then got the full ending and boss rush.

I beat The Guy on medium about a month ago, and greatly appreciated the endcredits music from A Link to The Past.
I didn't get any of the secrets, but I saw the "Metroid Zone" item.

It was great, but I don't particularly want to play through it again, then it'll feel too much like a Megaman Zero game.

Can't wait 'till the "distant future" release of IWSTK, though.

Good Times....

I became the Guy on hard mode few months ago, and just did again today (went back for the secret items, you see)

I'll likely try and beat it on very hard in the near future, maybe I'll even attempt impossible if I'm feeling crazy (although the furthest I can get is the area where you first see the zombies)

Post by: Elman on July 29, 2008, 05:55:34 am
I'd already finished the game in Medium mode, with no secret items. Now I've just become The Guy on Hard, with all 6 secret items ;D

(http://img205.imageshack.us/img205/5974/hardhb8.jpg)

It took me about 2800 deaths and 8 hours to finish the game in Medium (Plus about 300 deaths and 20 minutes from getting 3 of the secret items. Most of those deaths from that evil spike in G&G's :P). It sure was a lot easier, and much more fun! Since I already knew the levels and I was familiar with the gameplay, it was a lot more enjoyable than the first time.

Hard mode's saves are really well placed: they'll never force you to get through 2 very hard areas with no saves. As far as I can tell, this is the normal mode (Medium is just Easy), and I recommend anyone to play it after they finish Medium. Maybe rest some time, but then give it a try. It's really awesome.

You know what's funny? Let me quote myself:

Quote from: Elman
So far it's been a blast. I have to say that Hard/Very Hard modes seem quite pointless, though: they aren't really harder, since the actual gameplay's exactly the same, but they are much more frustrating. And that's not nice. I only played in Normal, and with some help from Youtube videos (Mostly to see where the surprise traps were, like the falling star in the 3rd upper level >_<). No, I'm not gonna waste hours of my life and get really pissed playing a game just so I can do it without wearing a ribbon on the character's head xD A hard game's ok, a frustrating one isn't.

[...]

Anyway, it's a great game, I'd dare to say it's one of the best I've ever played (Except for the random crashes)! ;D Keep up the good work ^^

It sure is one of the best games I've ever played. But I enjoyed Hard mode a lot after all ;D
Title: Re: Running Count of People that Have Become The Guy
Post by: PMega on July 31, 2008, 01:20:49 am
I AM THE GUY

Difficulty: Hard
Playtime: 6:43
Deaths: 1411

Obviously, deaths are higher than actually recorded because of all the game crashes and the parts where I exited without reaching the save point, which means some deaths are not counted. Still, I guess it's not too bad for a 1st run-through. Maybe?

I have to say, I thought The Kid was going to do something cool about the apple falling at the end of the credits... but all he did was get his head blown off, and I had to beat The Guy again.  >:(

Still, found Hard difficulty a bit easy.  :-X May go for Very Hard next, or might go look for sekrit items first.

After many hours, I've finally become The Guy. That would make me (if the counter on the first post is right) the 251 The Guy.

I played on medium.

The final boss was a huge pain to complete. I spend many days trying it... In my opinion, it was the hardest thing in the whole game. (Surprise, it was the final boss. It is meant to be the hardest)

The funniest place was the Ryu Hayabusa's room. I laughed a lot there.

This is my first and probably the last post.

I have to say that the hardest bit of this game for me is double jumping across the fan room with ryu in it.

That was until I realised about dracula's lair.

Oh and the labrynth of the guy took me SO LONG to figure out. I really don't know how anyone completes the game in under 4 hours on their first playthrough without a guide.

Was anyone else the sort of person curious enough to find all the secret items without going out of their way to look for them? I just found them all as I played through the game on medium  :D

It takes time to be good at it. It took me forever to beat it the first time. But now I can beat it under 1 hour and 100 deaths without any major disasters. Why? Because I've beaten it 10 times over.

There's only 2 tricks to being good at this game: Timing, and knowing where all the hideous little traps Kayin placed deviously in these spine-breaking tear-inducing levels. Both of these come with experience in the game.

P.S. On those 100 death games, I often rack up about half of those deaths just from the GnG part. It took me days to finally beat it the first time, so rest with the knowledge that it's normal to be entirely frustrated at that part :P (It still gets me every time though :( )

Well, I am now officially The Guy, and must say this game was quite the awesome piece of work; it certainly kept me busy for awhile and was a good break from the cavalcade of pathetically easy games out there today.  I honestly did not think The (former) Guy was that difficult on the first phase, but the second phase (in particular right after the laser eyes) owned me in part because I didn't kill the eyes fast enough on the onset (and was promptly treated to fire breath and seeker spikes).

Thanks for making this game.  I think I can safely say it's the only freeware game ever to come out that's made me glad to be frustrated.

By the way, I found I could not move when the apple fell at the end.  Bug, or am I doing something wrong?

Also, I checked the store for an "I Am The Guy!" T-shirt and was disappointed.  I thought it would look really cool with the 6 bosses on there, or maybe just the 6 boss blocks that show up in the save screen.    I would buy it (so I could rub my Guyness in other non-Guy faces).  The designs that are there are pretty neato, though.

Since apparently some sort of proof is required...

(http://x2f.xanga.com/770f376624237205774896/m159990597.jpg)


The cherry killed me last time I beat it (since I couldn't move, for some reason), and I hit R.  I didn't know that it saved the game anyway.

So I had to beat The Guy again.  Something interesting happened this time, though.  I took a little longer than usual during the second part and he breathed fire at me just as I took out the other eye.  The fire stayed there indefinitely in this little arc over the pillar.  I ran across to the right side, took out the eye and came back but the fire was still there.  So I had to do these little hops (or risk being burned) while taking one shot at a time at the eye, all the while dodging the fire he shot out, the fire that was stuck there, those little white things that shatter and the spikes from the floor.  Yeesh.  Once I finally won, I was sucked THROUGH THE FIRE and killed, prompting swearing until I discovered that the end credits were running anyway.  AND I dodged the cherry this time.

Thanks again for the game.

Just beat The Guy on my 1st run, on Hard.
These statistics are screwed up since I was using a buggy version that didn't update my time or death count between the end of the demo and just after I beat Dracula, and also because even the working version didn't save time or deaths when I had to quit before reaching a save point (which was often), but here they are anyway:

I beat The Guy twice last week.  First run took <900 tries according to the save file, though it doesn't update the save file every time you die, only when you save the game, so if you die 50 times in a row and it crashes on death #51, that's 50 deaths not added to the counter.  I'm sure my death count was more like 2000.

: show
The F'in apple killed me at the end, which is hilarious and a great ending, but in no way should you be robbed the final save file for it.  I don't know if I screwed myself somehow, maybe pressed R too soon, but I had to beat him again to get the final completed save file. Evil >.<

The Guy became very easy after the first time I killed him. I can usually get him on the first or second try now. Once you have his pattern down and become good with accurate dodging, he becomes a piece of cake.

The Guy himself must have been about a whole hour of that, I kept getting him down to his last eyeball and then something would catch me, especially trying to transition to the other pillar.

Dracula also took me ages, he kept firing constant homing apples and teleporting on top of me...

Good game :D

I beat the game after about a week and a half of playing instead of working in class - both times I've beaten the guy, I've died while the bullets were in midair, and then he's died, and then I come back to life to go flying out the window.

I'm playing through very hard now.
First playthrough - hard.  1337 deaths - absolute coincidence, I shit you not.
Second playthrough - hard.  ~360 deaths.
Current playthrough - just after bowser with about 180 deaths.  Started yesterday morning.

I just beat The Guy!  It was on hard mode.  My time was 7 hours, 56 minutes, and 20 seconds, with 2124 deaths.  I know that's pitiful compared to some of the other times and deaths, but I don't care.  I'm so happy just to have gotten through it.

I've won on Medium, and twice on Hard. I have the game downloaded as of now on 4 computers at school plus my home computer. On one computer at school I'm playing a Very Hard game, and in another I'm playing another Hard game (going for speed). Anywhere else I'm just doing impossible runs. I've been getting some pretty solid runs all the way to Ghosts and Goblins.

Post by: Trask on November 06, 2008, 10:37:45 pm
I've just become The Guy for the first time, Hard Mode. Just three days before my birthday, can't ask for too much sweeter than this.

Played the game completely blind, no prior knowledge of what was coming. Wouldn't have it any other way. :)

Things that can suck a railroad spike (in no particular order):

- Ghosts and Goblins spikes - you know the ones
- Mother Brain's Spaghettios
- The Ryu Hayabusa fake error screen
- Demon Dragon's chase, ESPECIALLY on the way back
- Every single gravity-defying delicious fruit or spike
- Turrets (Especially before I realized you could shoot them... *sigh*)
- The Evil save point right before Father The Guy... I didn't realize for the longest time that if I shot it enough it became a regular save point)
- The Castlevania and Tourian sections for being SO WELL HIDDEN
- Kayin's evil mind for being so damned compelling!

My thoughts on Father The Guy:

First form: Not too bad, seems easy enough to dodge when I'm not stupidly running into the grenade fire
Second form: Okay, has another decently simple pattern... takes me a while to figure out but I'm good from there on
Third form: WHAT? How am I supposed to hit him? Ugh, after trying to shoot him at every moment possible, I finally figure out he has to shoot himself...
Gianthead One: Easy stuff!... which scares me. I know there's so much worse coming.
Gianthead Two: Okay... I figure out how to dodge the initial eye lazors pretty quickly but I die repeatedly... goes by much better once I figure out it's easier the faster I shoot out his eyes.
Gianthead Three: I die almost instantly... and sit watching the screen for a few seconds... WHAAAAAT? How am I even supposed to survive all that? Ugh... eventually he goes down...

That delicious fruit at the end of the credits... it really would have killed me if I hadn't moved, wouldn't it?

DICK MOVE.

And I love it.

I have been the guy for some time now. Since late august, didn't know this topic existed. Took me about 5 hours and 1353 deaths on hard, horrible I know... but sometimes I got frustrated and suicided to get rid of anger.
True story here: after I beat IWBG I actually went out with my friends and boght 3 dozen apples and destroyed them in every way we possibly could, Cut, hacked, slashed, smashed, pounded, crushed, ran over, burned, blew up, shot and chewed... It was fun. :D  :kid: > :fruit:

I did it. This game is amazing. The brilliant creativeness kept me hooked all the way until the end.

I love the difficulty, it couldn't have been made harder without it being stupid. This game was actually made to be as hard as the no-damage runs people come up with from other games. I didn't like the idea of there being bosses at first, since I like figuring out the stages better, but it's all good. :)

And Kayin was right. If you can't make it any further, you'd better stop your playing session, or it's not fun anymore, and you fall into a routine of repeated deaths.

I'm in the palace of the guy on my very hard file, but that file's at school so i cant play it here. I'd have it done by now if it were here. Also i agree with the one guy up there about taking the save block out of the egg launcher chamber, that was terrible, even though i knew it was gonna happen.

I would just like to say that i don't consider anybody who played on Medium difficulty to actually be the guy.

Wussies.

edit 1: I finished my very hard file today at school. There should be some kind of easter egg ending or something man.

edit 2: I just read those guys arguing about getting to Mecha Birdo in 6 minutes, it's really not that hard, i just did it in 6:20. I'm sure i could get that down to 4 or lower if i wanted to keep trying.

I DID IT!
I finally beat the game today!
Time: 4:53:30
Deaths: 1334 (that's 3 deaths from 1337!) :o
Hard mode
I also found a weird item at the end of the ghosts 'n goblins stage, I'm guessing it's one of the hidden items?

This was my first playthrough of the game.
Here's also a pic:

I'm the guy too!

Did it at around 2000 deaths, already continued the memory so got some more deaths, now just rounding up the secret items,

As for the final battle... EPIC! I like games with very hard final bosses, and it was awesome to see one of the hardest games ever to have one of the hardest bosses ever.

After a long break on the game, I have finally beaten IWBTG. Without walkthroughs, videos, or other forms of cheating, I had 2538 deaths on medium... 3 items and 13:30:30 time. Not too good, but I tried my all. I had a great time playing it, when I wasn't stuck at the same area for the past hundred deaths.

I finally beat the game on very hard yesterday. Thats the second time I've completed the game but the third time I'm attempted to. On my first attempt I played it on medium but I couldn't beat The Guy so I restarted the game on hard mode and then beat The Guy on that difficulty. Now I've beaten it on Very Hard and I've also got 3 of the secret items.

I found the bosses to be the hardest parts of the game. Probably because I never used a controller. Watching videos of playthroughs of the bosses on youtube, I noticed most players managed to fire insanely fast. The only way I can see this being possible is with a controller. Did most players play like this or are these just a small handful of players who just happened to record and upload their footage to youtube?

YESSSSS!!  I am THE GUY!  It took me probably 3 weeks (playing a few deaths every night before going to sleep) to manage to kill the guy's final form.  Those freggin' homing white beams o' death are annoying as hell.  I had to beat him twice to make sure it wasn't a fluke.  Can't really say what my time and deaths were; my death counter and timer were broken before I downloaded the most recent version.  I'd guess my deaths were probably around 5000 playing for the first time through without any walkthroughs.

Kayin has my kudos.  For such a simple game, I had a lot of fun.  Favorite deaths were the "error screen" and the "You retard. You jumped into a sword!"  You have a way of making people paranoid though.  I was freaking out and couldn't even relax after beating the guy.  When I saw the spikes as I fell out of the tower, I was flipping out and mashing random buttons. :spikes: The delicious fruit at the end scared the crap out of me.   :fruit:  It's a good thing I WAS paranoid.  I would have been soo pissed if I saw the GAME OVER screen at the end, haha.

Make that count 366!

Yeah I finally decided to register just to say I AM THE GUY  :kid:

Well I didn't find all of the secret items but found those two on my own (kinda) and I'm pretty sure where other two are.

The guy wasn't that hard once you figure him out... except for those two last parts. Instead, Mother Brain killed me about 400 times, most of those caused by frustration and not resting until I beat her (it?).

I started playing it around New year, but I didn't really rush so I just beat it last Thursday (19/02/09)

I wouldn't really say it's the hardest game I've seen but it was still pretty hard and had a very good satisfaction feeling when I finally beat the Guy (shooting to his eye in the last moment before falling into the immortal flames, it was so dramatic).

By the way, the Error death was the best death in the game in my opinion, it kept me laughing for a good time. (I don't put this under spoiler because everyone here have beaten it already or else they wouldn't be here, right?

Well that was pretty much my opinion in the game and maybe I'll try it on Very hard one day (because as far as I've seen I think there isn't a single Save point on Impossible (hence the name) though, it's technically possible to beat it, just, no, would take a lot of time to someone to beat it).

To think I just started playing this for the lulz because of Niconico Douga. Ha.


To finish my semi-long post I would like to ask a simple question to anyone who knows: Can the falling apple (fruit, whatever) at the end of the credits NOT be avoided?   :fruit:

Because well, the game taught me I couldn't even trust it even when the credits are scrolling so I was expecting something to try to kill me and I was trying to see a moment where I could move on my own. The thing is that I don't know if the Kid (or rather the Guy) avoided it himself or if I moved him to the right (it looked like that to me).
I'm curious to know if you can get a Game Over there (as I would expect from this game).

Yeah, I know I could beat the Guy again just to see it myself, but I'd rather not if it can be easily answered here.

Sorry for the long post! ( ゚∀゚)b Nevah Give Up!

You have to dodge that final fruit yourself. If you don't, you will get killed and get a game over. I think if you press 'R' quickly enough, you'll continue from the beginning of the credits, though.

I am the guy! I had a similar experience as Fubu: On the sixth phase, second eye, I took my time, took the exact moment, went in, endured 15 seconds of absolute HELL, and took him out right before I got hit by his most basic attack, the red lasers.

I was like "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" when I beat him, but then I cheered and turned the volume way up when I figured out I HAD DONE IT. I HAD BEATEN THE GUY. I AM THE FREAKING GUY! I love this game!

Hard skill. 2:07:20, 442 deaths. Plus about 45 minutes and 35 deaths lost from the game crashing.

...though this is actually my second time through the game - the first time, I got quite frustrated after 3 days at Mother Brain and wrote an AutoHotkey macro for rapidfire, only to discover later that it is considered cheating, cheating, and, for future reference, cheating, so I deleted it, started the game over from the beginning, and completed it again in 2 nights.

I just hope that having replayed the entire game unassisted will be considered to be a sufficient act of penance for my sins.

Max, the commentary playthrough video series uploader for nicovideo, finished IWBTG a few days ago. Not sure how many deaths or time etc., but he had one save data loss problem so the number would be inaccurate. He's good enough to beat the first 4 bosses in 15 minutes with 15 deaths, so I think he's praiseworthy. Congratulations Max.

I just registered here, but I became the Medium Guy a little less then a month ago, and the Hard Guy a week later.
3000 deaths the first time, 2000 the second (I was getting the secret items on my Hard Run)

I have become the Guy! Add me to the count. +1!

It took me almost five hours to beat the Guy. I didn't realize for the first hour that you could kill the EVIL point and get a save point out of it. Then, three hours later, I didn't see the path above you need to use to kill his final phase. I regret having to check the forums to see what I needed to do, but it was necessary.
At one point after that, I killed the Guy as I died, but I felt guilty, so I crashed the game by trying to reload during the credit sequence. It took me another 20 minutes of pure frustration to get it for good. Anyways, I'm the Guy now, even if it took an embarrassingly long time to beat him. Yay!

I love this game.... Now that I've beat it.

Done. Finally. Did it, and joined just to say so.

But how can anyone prove it besides taking a video?

My total deaths: 1343 .

On the 2nd form of The Guy I had no idea those pillars were platforms. I kept trying to jump off the vines to hit his eyes until I accidentally landed on one... so much wasted time.

I began my journey to become The Guy last summer, and I toiled and cursed my way to the final boss fight with The Guy.  I was working on it a bit each day (for some reason I found it quite difficult), and then one day my computer stopped working and I had to format it.  Yeah.  However, I recently decided that it was time to finally be The Guy, once and for all, so I could wear an IWBTG shirt with pride.  So I just beat him, and it was SATISFYING!  :'D  My friends were always asking "Why do you want to be a guy?"  Not a guy.  The guy.  >:U

NOW!  About those kids that need saving...

Hello, fellow forum members! Unfortunately, I only ever come to IWBTF to check on and update the Guy count due to busyness in my personal and professional life. So, to make things a little more convenient for me (and, admittedly, a pain for everyone else) I've decided to stop keeping track of the count, effectively terminating my visits to this forum altogether.

Attached is a list of all the Guys to date, all in lower case because of a simple Guy adding/checking program that I wrote. If your username is not on the list and you have posted here previously, be sure to post here again. I'm pretty sure I have everyone written down that has explicitly stated that he or she had become The Guy, but there is always the chance that someone managed to slip through the cracks.

I figure that any moderator who wants to can feel free to update the count on whatever basis he or she feels is adequate. And, at any rate, I'll probably be back now and again to see what's new around the forums, but do not expect me to update the count from this point forth.

Add one to the tally - I became The Guy!  ...after what was recorded as 1234 deaths.   ;D

I'm glad I never ran across the spinning machinegun lasers of death glitch, though I might have been able to beat it thanks to the two safespots I found on the upper corners.  Still, it would have sucked.

I guess I got into the game a bit late; I only ran across it thanks to TV Tropes.  However, I have proceeded to spread the misery amongst my gamer friends.  They always tell me I'm a horrible person for making them play it.  Muahahaha.

Awesome. I would like to thank you for making such an awesome game. The only thing I truly hated was the harmonic up and down spike corridor in the Ghouls and Ghost's area. I think I got over 500 deaths here, and the first time I got through, well, that thing fell on me. Damn you. That was awesome.

Another note, I didn't know you could press S to skip cutscenes, so I listened to Dracula's speech over fifty times.

Strangely enough, I found that Mike Tyson was the hardest boss, but Dragon Devil only killed me three times. Thanks again for the suffering. Up next, Very Hard.

I beat the guy a few hours ago, remembered reading the topic title back a few months ago when I reported a bug or something, so I logged back in to say I am The Guy as well.

: show

The apple in the credits marks the one death in the game where I shouted an obscenity at the screen, other surprise deaths usually made me chuckle. The game crashing on my second victory didn't help either, but third time was the charm.


Overall a very fun game, especially since when I started I made it a point to never watch any videos of it so all the deaths and traps would be surprises. So my favorite stuff would be:
: show


Boss: Mecha Birdo. Just an all-around epic fight, and so much fun that I could care less about getting killed because it would mean more time to enjoy the fight. That's not something I find often

Area: Hall of the Former Guys. That place was so cool, especially with some of the switches in gameplay like breakout and that space shooter part. And who could forget that trap in the last room before the Incinerator of the Guy? :P

Close seconds include Castlevania and the Factory places, because those had a great mix of good music and some fun platforming sections. Oh and I can't forget Tetris, even if it was just a single screen.

Most Hated Boss: Mother Brain. Now, I'm a big Metroid fan and all but the NES Mother Brain is also my most hated boss there so... Yeah pretty reasonable. Though when I did it again on my hard file run through I did the whole area on my first try so maybe I'm over it. It still took me way too long to kill with those spaghettios.

Most Hated Area: Tough one... The Graveyard was a pain with the moving spike tunnel of insanity but I might just have to go with the Green Greens area with the moving spike wall of death. It didn't help that it took me like two hours to master wall jumping either.

And keep in mind though I labeled those things as most hated I still enjoyed them... they were just the things I enjoyed the least. :P


And yeah so I did it on normal the first time through. I already started a hard run and have six bosses down with like 451 deaths and a bit less than 2 hours. Maybe later I'll finish that file so you can't call me a wuss or nothing :P.

I feel like I should be including something more constructive or substantial here but I can't think of anything. Just want to say again that I found most of the bosses very well designed because they keep the player on his toes without much downtime to catch his breath. I just wish something was done with the secret items but oh well. Keeping them as bragging right trophies works too.

No. You have a ribbon in your hair. You know what gender that belongs to? It's certainly not the one referred to as guys.

Medium is for little girls that are not The Guy.

The ribbon just means you're playing on an easier level, it doesn't serve any other purpose in the game. Besides, just because you wear a ribbon doesn't mean you can't be a guy, right?

I beat him.  Took 50 billion tries, and I had to add lag.  He keeps shooting fire out of his mouth sometimes when I reach the final form, and it doesn't stop, so I can't jump to shoot the eye.  It makes it impossible. :fruit:

I've beaten the Guy on Very Hard difficulty.  It was pure hell to get to him, and even more hell to actually beat him.  Those last 4 eyes you have to pop are harder than everything else combined.  And of course I got hit by an apple during the credits.  I tried everything and couldn't dodge it.  He'd just move straight into it.

Your computer is lagging, download the ending file and try again, if that doesn't work then get the frame-skip version, if you already have that get slow-mo if that doesn't work cry.
Also if you don't want to fight the guy again:

Finished my first playthrough on hard mode.  1600 deaths :o

And yes, I HATE FINAL FACE, that third form made me start over so many times, i was about to give up it was so tedious.

Though I didnt die in the ending :P.  This game, if anything, gave me a healthy fear of apples(I think they look like apples as much as cherrys) OF DOOM.

Thanks Ellipsis.  I tried the code on the frame skip version, and the kid actually stopped when under the apple, so I could actually dodge it.  Don't ever use the slomo version for the ending, otherwise

I did a list of the first 102, then I got bored.

The 100th was actually Katt, not Gyurma hun.

What page did you get up to, Koppis? I'll try to continue where you left off (and I mean it this time >_>).

Post by: liquidCorgster on June 16, 2009, 08:50:40 pm
Alright, so I did it again on Hard and manged 452 deaths/2:2:10. My best run yet, but still nothing compared to the people who have done it on Impossible.

Though, admittedly, I had to quit a couple of times because I was having incredibly ill luck. That probably lessened the amount of deaths I had.

Only one person has done it on impossible and recorded it. I think you meant very hard...
Title: Re: Running Count of People that Have Become The Guy
Post by: liquidCorgster on June 17, 2009, 04:42:07 pm
Hm? I was fairly sure it was plural... ah well. Yes, Very Hard is still leagues away from my achievement regardless.

EDIT: nvm, I figured out after fiddling with the thing for 12 mins or so that your supposed to change the file type, and I beat very hard mode since then! ^_^;

"Now I am become The Guy, the destroyer of Former The Guys."
-from the Bhagavad Gita, with some obvious modifications...

Plus I bested him on Hard! Took me long enough! Casual playing doesn't bring a game like this to completion quickly... Dr. Wily had me stuck for ages before I realized you could save in the previous room!

Mark me up, if you please! Go number 420!

Mecha Birdo and were the easiest bosses for most people. Unless you're cloud8745, you shouldn't get stuck on MB.

Post by: Kudo. on August 03, 2009, 11:28:14 am
Come on, Mecha-Birdo even AUTO KILLS ITSELF if you just survive long enough, it's pathetic

the only bosses that can possibly be easier are Mike Tyson or if you accidentally glitch Kraid (which has happened 3 times too many for me -_-'' I beat him without the glitch eventually)

For some reason when I beat it it showed my death count at 1711 but now displays it at 1636 (give or take), but in any event, I have become the Guy (though I can't seem to get a screenshot of the save file to work, it always just gives me an image the boss rush room totally empty).

Reaction: Mimicing his "NO! NO!" with my own "YES! YES!" Followed by being glad I finished such hell. Best part is that now I can look back and say it was a good game, whereas before I'd say it was good until it murdered me endlessly and I started hating it. Until I play again, I can pretend it was all fun and games...

Did you die during the credits? If so, then all the deaths since you fought the guy would not have been recorded since you didn't save again.

I finally beat the guy on hard mode today, after hours of trying for the past 3 days.  I actually did it twice, but died right after the Guy died the first time, so the game decided to crash on me for it.  After another hour and a half or so I did it again, yelled FUCK YES, viewed the credits and dodged ze cherry at the end.

  It would have probably been beaten a lot sooner but for a while i kept triggering the third phase of the giant head while he was either about to flamethrower me or send 6 spikes at me, causing a permanent flamethrower and death.

Wall jumping without a controller is hell I broke down started crying cursing never done that to a videogame b4. Afterwards I started using a crappy Logitech USB that kept dying on me X_X. The other part that gave me hell was The Guy's 2nd form I can beat The Guy's first form perfectly now o.o I skip all his phases and just bashed the hell out of him. The Guy's 2nd form took me a week on my graduation party I gave it a try while drunk 3 tries and I finally beat him ^_^ on Hard.

Beaten on Medium.  The hard part, for me, was actually the bosses.  It's difficult for me to get the fire speed needed to do enough damage to the bosses before dying from all the attacks on screen.  It also took me 10 months and a zen moment early in the morning to beat The Guy.  His second form is just god-awful hard without that rapid fire speed.

I am The Guy.

However; My friend Davian became the guy before me, so put him down as 427, and me as 428.

...Also put me down as Alek.



Oh, and I will be celebrating my newfound The Guyness in a special way. Hopefully you guys will see more on that later.

EDIT: Beat Very Hard mode then Medium, and got all the items. Still working that project.

Actually, I had previously beaten the game on Medium, which is probably even better preparation. (Beating The Guy must have taken me hundreds of tries on the Medium run... on my Hard run it took only 5 tries)

You now have #427!!!

So...excited...can't...type...

Difficulty: Hard
Time: 12:20:00
Deaths: 1696
Items: GAME OVER room.

The time and death count have to be off, I'm sure they'd be greater if the game didn't conviniently crash and erase playtime.

Also of note, I almost cried the run I won, not because I did it (though I'm not saying I didn't cry on the inside afterward), but because I thought I had lost. A WFT (White Flashy Thing) hit me going up when the final shot connected. I almost hit R...then I just prayed it didn't crash during the credits or having me black out and getting owned by the delicious fruit at the end...

W00!!!!!

I'm up to the guy at this moment (First play-through, on medium, 449 deaths so far).

I'll post again once I've made it, hopefully I can be number 428  ;D

Also, as with the previous posts, I too have found myself automatically pressing R just after making it past a frustratingly difficult screen, just because it becomes a reflex after a while. I don't think my keyboard's ever taken a beating quite like it has at those times.

I have became the guy on Hard twice. The first play through i had 816 deaths and my file became corrupted on the way from the front of the castle to the train.mine ride.
Second play through finished completely(entire game) and I fricken' hated the part where you were stuck on the pedestal where you couldn't move. And yes, on that try I did die from the apple.
My current record is 412 deaths on hard mode.

Hi, I beat The Guy in...  August, I think, twice on medium (that last apple :P) and once on hard.  I hated the bosses on my first runthrough, but found them much easier the second time.  My favourite part was the first encounter with the Moon, after Tyson, I'll bet there are hundreds of others who loved that part too.  I may try very hard mode, but don't want to admit failure XD .  Also, did the rest of you all change the controls?  I used W(up and jump) A(left) S(down, not that it mattered often) D(right) Shift(shoot).  Found that much more agreeable.

Anyway, I really loved the game, and I'd love to be added to your tally.  Congrats to all who beat The Guy before me, and will do after me :P .

EDIT:  I just remembered, I really enjoyed the approach to the Palace of the Guy, perhaps the only forced motion stage I ever really liked.

I beat Hard mode with 816 Deaths on my first Try at IWBTG.
I probably have more like 1000, but MMF2 errors...

I finally beat Very Hard mode with 599 Deaths, the game is so much easier when you know how to beat it.
Also, like 50 of those deaths are in the Guys Castle, in the room before the brick break *i think* where if you jump on this one platform that descends down into spikes, you glitch back up to the original position you were in if it goes too far down. At that point, you can only do a falling jump into spikes. :(

I know it's pretty late but if I recall I became The Guy sometime in January or February.  It's left quite an impression on my life, both positive and negative: Because of IWBTG I got interested in PC games and emulators, which would inevitably lead me to my current addiction Touhou.  Thank you IWBTG; I still have hard times getting to sleep because of what you've done to my life, and I wouldn't have it any other way  ;D

I finished IWTBTG (Pink ribbon firmly in my hair) about nine months ago, and just today noticed mention in an article in The Escapist that you were keeping track of Guy Slayers.  Thought I'd join the ranks!

  I had had so much trouble with the third phase of the fight (The bit where you have to bounce his own shots back into him) that the first time the big honking head smashed through the stained glass and demolished me, I whimpered a bit, quit the game, and told myself "I'll keep at this tomorrow."  I didn't touch the game for about three weeks.  Out of fear.  When I finally did come back for more, I was sure I'd have to spend agonizing ages re-learning the first three bits, but they came back quickly.

  I haven't touched the game of my own initiative since I won.  I am occasionally compelled to sit down and show off for a friend stuck in a particularly impossible-seeming screen, though.  And I carry a copy of the game on the USB drive on my keychain so that I can inflict it on any new acquaintances I deem deserving!

Just beat The Guy earlier today, and I must say....one of the finest accomplishments of my gaming career.

Not sure if anything I play will ever top the satisfaction or frustration this game gives me.

Also: was it just me or did the Guy's final fight freeze the game way too damn much? I literally had the bullets fired that would have killed him, and it freezes. 5 hours later I kill him.

Also: was it just me or did the Guy's final fight freeze the game way too damn much? I literally had the bullets fired that would have killed him, and it freezes. 5 hours later I kill him.
I noticed this as well, especially upon restarting the game. The Guy seems to just freeze the game more often, but what are you goona do? You keep fighting until you win.

Just became The Guy today, after more than a year of on-and-off playing, from losing files on old computers to getting a good bit done away from home. Today it is done, Hard mode, 3:16:30 of playtime, and 448 deaths. When I beat it, all I could do was stare at the screen, a dumb smile on my face. At that moment, I felt all the glory of being The Guy.

I just became the Guy on hard.  Those horrid white sparklies have met their DOOM. Verily, it was fantastic.

I'm working on a better run on very hard, now.  So far, its coming along surprisingly better than I thought it would.

I beat the guy for first time with 1.820 deaths and lots of crashes (I guess 1.000 plus non-counted deaths for that plus all the attempts to kill the guy)

For second time I did it with 618 deaths.
For third time I did it with 212 deaths.

Three days ago I was reading TVtropes and came across an article on IWBTG that was humurous and proclaimed it's difficulty, naturally I downloaded it and the slaughter commenced.  As of ten minutes ago I stand before you having become the newest "THE GUY".
: show
(http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y135/Krazl/IWBTGCompleted.jpg)

1,438 deaths, almost 7 hours played.

I must admit that I looked up what I was supposed to do when the giant moon falls down and chases you around because the first several times I did it I was stuck with nowhere to go (it didn't break down the right wall) :-X

The giant head was a real pain until I mastered the art of jump > triple shot > double jump > triple shot which lead to a much quicker kill and requires much less dodging of homing white thingys and teeth and fire breath. I actually couldn't do this until I changed the controls so that my right hand could be in charge of jumping and firing and my left hand in charge of movement (backwards of what I had done the whole game ewwww). The only thing I didn't like about the final boss battle was that I must have crashed the game no less than 50 times, usually AFTER he was a giant head but before I died leading to wasted time and not learning anything new about the boss  :(

My favorite death in the whole game was getting killed by Dracula's Wine/Blood whatever glass while listening to his speech, that or jumping into the sword in the link area. I <3 IWBTG!  :kid:

Woot! I beat The Guy on Hard Mode! It took (recorded) 10 minutes and 50 seconds, and 18 deaths. It actually took about ten hours (accumulated), 200 deaths (I may be exaggerating) and 50 "This program's encountered an error and needs to close." screens.

I also did it twice, cause I didn't know how to avoid the last bit.

Is it normal for your heart beat to become noticeably faster when you nearly kill The Guy? It never seems to happen with other games.

Chalk up one more madman for beating the guy. :kid: I'm new to this site, but the guy has been laying on a bed of :spikes:s for a while now. ;D I found out that if you stand up in the ceiling corridor above his eyes when he fires, you can move to the right and possibly dodge the entire blast of beams and stay safe from those last shots before the flame on the ground, but this might only work on the non-frame skip version of the game :(. I wonder how many people have really seen this game through to the end instead of throwing their keyboards into their computer monitors ???

After many hours of frustration I have finally become The Guy. I'm no super hardcore gamer, this game was incredibly difficult for me, but I didn't lose my composure until the final battle with The Guy. And yet, despite telling myself that my massive frustration would override the satisfaction of the ending, beating The Guy was still f*cking awesome.
I just screamed "YES!!!!!" out of surprise.

Playtime ~ 10hrs
Deaths ~ 2600
Difficulty - Hard, frameskip version set to max performance

Yeah, noobish death count, I know. I'm going to take my man pills now and do it on Very Hard.

Post by: Sir Trey on January 20, 2010, 02:13:16 am
Sir Trey = Newest Guy.

OH MY F*****G GOD, I HATE THE GUY'S LAST FORM.  I heard about this game as sort of a challenge after beating The World's Hardest Game and having a friend scoff, saying this was the real world's hardest game (I have now conquered IWBTG before him, so he can suck it).    After a solid month of nearly breaking my laptop in half, I got to The Guy.  Beating his first three forms became a matter of memorizing his patterns, and after he breaks the glass (I'm really surprised the falling glass doesn't kill you), his first big head form isn't that bad either.

It's the second one that started to cause problems.  The white homing balls were really annoying at first, but essentially if you keep shooting they're almost a non-issue (you're practically guaranteed to hit them).  It's the damn fire (both on the ground and in fireball form) that sucks.  And then his final big head form...#^*@%$#(!.  I finally figured an easier route than the one I had been doing (once you kill the second form, climb to the safe zone and wait for the white balls to get in your line of fire, destroy them, commence battle.  Destroy one eye, repeat, conquer).

I have probably only been this gratified from a video game once (when I beat Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots; I'm a MGS fanboy, I'll admit it), and I loved the credits.  But had that last apple killed me, I would have broken something.  My laptop, a window, someone's face, I'm not sure, but my anger would have known no bounds  ;D  As it stands...

Playtime = 11:26:40
Deaths = 2131
*Both are probably only about 75% of the real total when crashes and quits before another save point are accounted for*
Difficulty = Hard

I dunno if I have another playthrough in me right now, but later, knowing what will kill me...should be fun.  Great game Kayin...even though a part of me still despises you for killing me that much.  Apples, giant cherries, delicious fruit, whatever the hell they are...IT DOES NOT FALL UP.  :fruit:

And damn, Mother Brain was difficult...  :kid:

I believe I would've had a slightly higher death count if the game never crashed.

The Guy's an ass to beat without any sound whatsoever.  Processing the fight entirely visually screwed with my timing. 

Happy to report I didn't die at the end.

Awesome game, thanks for making it.

I actually just registered primarily for the sake of posting to add myself to the list:

I have beaten The Guy. On Medium, Hard, and again on Very Hard. Add me as Poochy.EXE, please.

It frankly didn't seem as hard as most people claimed it was, at least not on Medium. Mostly it was just trial and error, the awesome references and hilarious traps kept me playing, and by the time I finished it and started my Hard run, I had pretty much memorized the game. Touhou 11's irritatingly gimmicky stage design was actually probably harder.

(http://webpages.charter.net/poochyexe/iwbtgcomplete2.png)
Disregard the time and death counts on Medium, they're WAY short due to game crashes. Hard is more accurate (but still a couple unsaved deaths here and there), and Very Hard is pretty undercounted again because I had a couple dozen unsaved deaths and an hour or two at the spike corridor.

Hopefully I'll bother to stick around on the forums a bit.

I beat The Guy!

I did it on Hard Mode after COUNTLESS attempts. Sometimes I'd restart a map after dying, get to the new area finally and spazz out and hit R again just because my hand was so used to the motion.
I would have probably finished way sooner, but I kept leaving my home computer (which had the game on it) for college and work, and would only come back for a few days at a time.  Regardless...it's done. Unless I wanna do the hidden mode next...which I don't.

Finally done with it that after something like 300 tries on The Guy. (Cleaned in Medium mode - 04/03/10, 1892 Deaths and 8hrs 21 minutes of play time (but with all the crashes I suppose it's more like 3500 Deaths / 12 hours, all this done on 3 weeks of casual gaming))

Reactions ? I paused the game, stood up and started to run all over the house crying my heart out.
Then I sat, watched the credits, and the game crashed, which made me take one more hour to rekill him. -_-'

It took me about 6-7 weeks to get to the guy, and then another 6 weeks just to beat him. I got to his 6th form in the end of February, and finally beat him for the first time yesterday. Obviously I died in the credits (I couldn't even scream or cry at that point, I just accepted it), but I managed to beat him again today and I feel somewhat empty. It's finally over. This has been a harsh experience.

Think of the Giant Head form of The Guy.
How bad it could possibly be if you did not realize you could just stand on the pillars?
I was hopping along the sides for so long trying to take him down...
But now I'm so happy that I've beaten him, I might get a name change to add The Guy at the end of my name until some guy takes me out

I've been The Guy for a while, never got around to taking a pic of it though so those aren't my "just now beat the game" stats. I think my deaths were something like 2017 or something. Plus I got 3 of the secret items :3

Man it took me a lot of deaths to beat this game, but unlike a lot of other games out there it gave me a huge sense of accomplishment.  Great job Kayin!

Also, my death counter broke.  So the figure you see is not an accurate depliction of the amount of times I died.

I agree that the part of the huge head I hated most was the frigging homing balls.

Thank you loads for the game. :) I had a roaring time.

Beat it a few weeks back on Hard. I would save after near every set of deaths just so I'd have my horrendously awful records as accurate as possible.

Today I decided to kill time on a 5-hour flight to Honolulu by becoming The [Airplane] Guy at 30,000 feet. From start to finish, my endeavor took about 3-4 hours, accumulating around 400 deaths on Hard mode (most were not recorded due to frequent crashes) since I still suck at this game even after defeating it previously on Very Hard. Regardless, the turbulence helped intensify the experience; the inevitable red pixel explosions and subsequent Guilty Gear Isuka track helped to drone out a screaming infant two rows ahead; and I managed to complete the game with 32% battery remaining and with some time to spare before landing, ecstatic and thoroughly exhausted.

I DID IT!

(http://i204.photobucket.com/albums/bb219/iluvmudkipz/IAMTHEGUY.png)

a funny thing happened to me when I was fighting the guy.
Around my 437975th death, I got mad and started hitting my keyboard, and the next thing I knew, The Kid was thrown out the window, falling through the sky with The Guy's gun in his hand. The Guy was lying in a bed of spikes with his eyesockets bleeding. I somehow frustrated myself past the guy. Being the perfectionist that I am, though, I closed the window and eventually beat him the proper way. this game only made me cry once, at the end, with tears of joy.
I DID IT, MOFOS! YEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH BOOOOOOOOOIIIIIIIIII.

Put me down as HolyFlanders

I've also beaten the game yesterday. Twice in fact. After I downloaded the game a week ago I started playing on medium first and beat the Guy just about 24 hours ago.

Then I started hard and defeated him on the same day again, reducing the time taken from 12 hours in the first try (with 3200 deaths) to about 3 hours on hard (with 897 deaths).

 Now trying to improve more but I still have problems at some parts like the often mentioned spike corridor, the screeen where ryu appears (just can't make the fucking jump to the other side, at least not without a couple of deaths!) and the fight against Wily. But I'm working on it! My personal goal is: Completing the game with less than 50 deaths on hard/very hard - Quite a long way to go I think but I'm working on it! ;D  :kid:

The actual death count is more like 3000 or so, when you factor in the times the game crashed and didn't record the deaths.

I beat the guy, and got the secret items. I feel like a Vietnam veteran, and I've all but had nightmares about it, but I am one of The Guys. As for my feeling about The Guy fight, and the game in general. I hate something in the equation. I'm not sure if I hate Kayin for making the evil, the game itself for being the evil, or myself for ENJOYING the evil. But to sum up the whole experience, the R button on my keyboard is barely even on anymore. Also J comes off now and then. I assure you that was a fit of rage caused by this game as well.
P.S. I tried to get a picture of my save, but I deleted IWBTG a while back (kept saves) and after trying to reinstall it, my saves are there, but it won't show anything on them from the main menu. Any help?
Edit:So I was just taking a look at the list and I couldn't find Zoopsoul or Brian Sulpher on there anywhere. Link to Zoop's portion of the battle-off http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-HSJSR2a7d8&feature=related. I'm fairly sure he and Brian were in the top 150, maybe top 100 to become one.

I beat The Guy on Hard some time ago. It took about 1 hour of attempts. I can't say that he is hard, all I can say is that he's easy once you learn his pattern. The first time I (glitch) beat him I told myself that I truly won but over time I felt kind of guilty about it. I then took 2 days out of my life to do a full run of the hard game (excluding finding the secret items) and finally beat The Guy for real this time.

I beat The Guy on Hard some time ago. It took about 1 hour of attempts. I can't say that he is hard, all I can say is that he's easy once you learn his pattern. The first time I (glitch) beat him I told myself that I truly won but over time I felt kind of guilty about it. I then took 2 days out of my life to do a full run of the hard game (excluding finding the secret items) and finally beat The Guy for real this time.
:kid: :spikes:

Is this guy legit or someone pretending to be him...checking his myspace
I thought that, I doubt he is.

I few years ago I tried IWBTG, only knew about the down path, and gave up after the fourth screen. Now that I am in university, I found out that someone else in my dorm room had beaten the guy on Hard! This was obviously my next challenge, and a few days ago I finally beat the game.

Post by: itsme on November 10, 2010, 03:42:00 am
just realized it didn't post...

It took me forever to beat the guy. His giant head form was torture, even when I knew the pattern, SOMETHING would happen to kill me (glitch with infinate flame breath, shining thing going above me while the guys firebolts were in my escape path etc.) but I finally beat him... and I'm trying very hard mode and keep dying at the part right after birdo... I think there should be a safe point there, even if it's just so I don't feel stupid for dying there. Also, whenever I do die there, the spikes in the G&G area glitch, and I'm refusing to get past any part that way.

Hopefully this picture works.

This thread is for whos become the guy e.g. kill the guy. Not for getting the secret items. Since they do naff all , they're only for bragging rights and since so many people have them even that's worthless.

Post by: avengah on November 14, 2010, 06:12:54 am
Yeah I suppose. Anyway, here's my nice neat title screen. See the secret items on that table there? Hehe :) Oh, and there's no save in the Room of Divine Transportation on Very Hard, so that's why I've saved there instead.

Oh, and I did die a fair bit (but much less once I became good at the game), but didn't save after dying. Deaths not saved are not recorded.

I also wanted to point out that this game isn't even that hard once you've learnt the rooms and traps etc. Many of the fangames are much, much harder than the original! It's just that I'm sick of reading people saying that IWBTG is the hardest game ever, when it's clearly not. (Not on this forum, but I've seen it on people's blogs etc.)

Hey, count me in as another who registered to bask in her sweet sweet victory. I downloaded this game about a year ago and powered through it in about a month, but I got extremely stuck on the Guy himself and abandoned the game. Hearing about the Kid's appearance in Super Meat Boy reminded me of my standing shame and motivated me to press on. And it feels so good.

I beat The Guy on hard... I don´t know... like a year ago maybe?

Well, what annoyed me at the boss fight the most ( I guess) probably was that I often died seconds before I could land the finishing touch on The Guy... damn cowardness of mine!

And even if this game annoys the :spikes: out of you, you can´t seem to hate it (for a longer time)...

Edit: Beat the game on Very Hard.

I defeated the Guy. The moment in which THE LAST SHOT FROM MY GUN, LANDED IN HIS EYE, was the best moment in my Gamer life ;D. The best things that I remember and that always make me smile, is the "No, NOOOOOOOOO!" from The Guy when you landed the last shot in his eye, and the "Congratulations, You Completed the Game!" or something like that with the inspiration and happy music from the credits  :D.

When I defeated the Guy, the game had recorded 600 deaths, and I did it on Hard. It's weird though, my best friend saw me playing IWBTG after I defeated the The Guy, and told me: "Why are you still playing that if you already defeated The Guy?". The answer was very easy and simple: "IWBTG is FREAKING FUN!".  :kid: :spikes: :spikes: :spikes:

I have finally beaten The Guy on Hard Mode. I made it to The Guy months ago, but got fed up with trying to beat him because I only recently found out you can skip the cutscenes. You could imagine my frustration dying to him and having to wait a minute just to get killed again.

Although I kept stupidly dying to the head form. By the end of it I could beat the first form nearly in my sleep, but would usually get hit by either the white plate thingies or the eye fireballs because I'm trying to avoid a white plate thingy and have nowhere to go but on a eye fireball. I'm also glad I wasn't gullible enough to fall for the last surprise, since I would have had an aneurysm if I had to beat him again.

I literally pulled my hair out playing this game, as well as screamed loud obscenities at the computer. My counter is at 2366 kills, but I'd say anywhere from 2700 - 3000 is more accurate from the deaths that weren't counted between crashes and getting stuck on parts without saving in between.

Just finished it right now (finally. I've been stuck on The Guy for the past year. I've gotten to the point where I've memorised every single one of his moves and could almost beat his instinctively, but that last god damn eye always got me. Always)

Was playing on medium. If I ever feel like losing my sanity, I might ramp up the difficulty and play again. Play time and death count were unfortunately broken due to a busted save inside The Guy's castle.

I beat The Guy a long time ago, but now I've beaten the guy on Very Hard!  I doubt anyone will believe me without a screenshot, though!  ;D  For some reason The Guy took much longer this time...

But everyone knows that The Guy isn't the hardest boss. Kraidgief is.  Or maybe the Klown Kopter.

Now then, I need to go get some sunlight.

I've become the Guy just 20 minutes ago... in wuss mode (yes, you can make jokes on me).
Was kinda fun at the end, but you won't make me do it again ;D.

Easiest boss : Dracula (killed in less than 10 tries).
Hardest boss : Mother Brain (god I HATE having to dodge so much projectiles coming from so many sources !)

My favorite part of the game was the Palace of the Guy. Most cool ideas were therein. Ha, and the Tetris level too.

I laughed at/when :
: show
- Delicious fruit (only the first ones !)
- Great rock falls and destroys anything
- "It's dangerous to go alone ! Take this."
- Dracule throws his glass at you during the cutscene
- Multimedia Fusion error

And years after getting the game, I've finally beaten it on medium.

I was stuck for two years on freaking Mecha Birdo, although I rarely played the game during that time. Last tuesday I randomly beat him (her? it?) and then started playing intensively, beating the other 6 bosses and the game. Looks like I got a lot better; back then it took me months to get through the graveyard section.

I didn't want to post onto the forums until i could triumphantly say that I have bested the guy on hard. I finished him off yesterday afternoon. I was on a mad rush to beat him before the new year and I was surprised when i had finally done it. It was especially grueling when I didn't know how much i had left of him since I was going in blind.

hardest boss: the guy (had the kids voice saying "i wanna be the guy" stuck in my head as something of a mantra to keep me going)
easiest boss: dracula (though i think i got lucky because his randomness was kind)

this is easily the most proud I've been in my video gaming life.

The only run I've seen that looks legitimate besides tijit's is the gathiMDS run that Float posted. All other impossible runs that were featured on nicovideo (at least that I saw) clearly used autofire, which, at least in my opinion, invalidates the run as legitimate.

I completed it on 'Hard' difficulty, and it took me just over 4 hours to beat 'The Guy', so yeh, I'm rather happy.  :)

Here's proof, by the way.
Very, VERY happy!  ;D

After someone just told me they supposly beat the game in 3 hours after they reached the guy I was hurt in my pride... so I had to reasure myself that this game is difficult..(I feel like a giant douche for doing so.. this should not matter so much.. but this is IWBTG afterall)

Anyway, while I am here i might as post it, beat the game on hard.

It's IWBTG related. And apples do fly up in IWBTG.

Yay finally did it.
Difficulty: Hard
Deaths: 351
Playtime 4:29:00

I simultaniously played it together with friends that's why I knew most of the stuff and avoided getting killed that often.

Post by: JGuy on January 05, 2012, 04:18:04 am
YES! Finally did it!   ;D

Wow... I'm still in shock, tbh

Final death count is 963, 3:13:20 on Medium (Call me a pansy, I don't care)
Both the time and death count are WAY inaccurate, btw, thanks to the game crashing and other stuff. I'm guessing it's really around 2000-3000 for the death count.

But whatever, I'm the Guy now  ;D :spikes: :fruit: :kid:

Now to try it on Hard...

Just finished on Medium, 3:34:40, 1470 deaths. Figures I'd do my part to keep the official list of Guys as complete as possible.

FINALLY, I have become the guy on medium. I felt so happy last night when I did. Crazy awesome feeling.

Unfortunately I can't provide a screenshot, though, or my kill count. I started I Wanna Be the Guy last year and got to the final boss, then my hard drive on my laptop crashed, so I lost my save file and all. Yesterday I decided to use that save fix program to skip back to the final boss and to give beating it another shot (heck if I was going to go through the entire game again just for the final boss), and I beat it last night after 2 solid hours of fighting him. I didn't really care to watch all of the credits, though, so I exited before they were over and it didn't record it as me having beaten The Guy. Technically I could fight him again to get a screenshot, but I don't feel like spending another hour fighting him just to get a screenshot.  :-\

Doesn't matter, though. I beat him and now I can finally rest easy knowing that I'm the newest Guy out there.

Actually, I remember fighting the guy last year and thinking I'd never beat him in a million years. Now that I've come back to it after beating games like I Wanna Kill the Guy and getting to the final boss (still working on beating him) of I Wanna Be the Boshy, I think my skills have improved so much that the final boss of I Wanna Be the Guy really isn't too tough. It's just one of the longer fights. Kind of interesting how playing spin offs have made me better at the source material.

I became The Guy with...

11:54:20 H/M/S

and 2891 deaths!

On Hard mode.

I thought I'd finally lost my sanity at the final fight, but I'm glad I made it through in one piece(and my laptop too!)!

I didn't see this thread years ago when I first beat the game, but I've beaten the game again. This time, I avoided the final trap and unlocked Boss Rush mode, making it official. It took me about 8½ hours over two sessions, and the save file reports 4:05:50 and 1125 deaths. One of these days, if somebody ever fixes bugs in the source, I'll try again on Hard mode.

Haven't beaten the guy yet. I lost my save when I was at motherbrain, and it pissed me so much that I more or less stopped playing xD.

I'm currently remaking it, so maybe that will make me want to replay through it though. Oh god, the insanity  :o

Thanks Ellipsis :) I have a question, though I don't know if it's considered blasphemy in here.. Does anyone know if there's an I Wanna Be The Boshy mac port? I've been looking for one for some time but can't find any. The creator of the IWBTG mac port I've been using can't seem to get an IWBTB port up.
Title: Re: Running Count of People that Have Become The Guy
Post by: Ellipsis on July 25, 2012, 12:44:23 pm
Voltric I don't think that there is.
However you can download wine (http://www.winehq.org/) and try use that to run the game.
Alternatively you could ask the creator of IWBTB if he can port the game to mac. It might be a long shot but if the game is made in gamemaker the mac version of gamemaker should be able to make a version of the game which will work on mac.

I became the guy earlier this year.  I found out about the game at the office, and as my co-workers are also gamers, we checked it out.  I started playing it as a joke, but it slowly became a lunch hour tradition, every day, for about a month and a half or so, slowly making progress on Hard.  I f'ing did it.  I don't know how so many of you the people here beat it with such good stats though.  Under 2 hours, double digit death?  My god.  It took me 17:24:20 and 4673 deaths!

Fair day, Guys!!

Latest Kid who became The Guy here. I beat it last night, almost 3 months after I dowloaded the game.
Hard mode was Hard. But I didn't want to play it on Medium first, because I don't like to be called a wuss.

Down with Father the (former) Guy - that bastard. And to think that, at some point, I was almost certain I'd never get past the up-and-down spike corridor in the graveyard zone...

I see that some posters above me have skills that make mine (if I have any) look like a joke. Still adding my name to the list of winners, though, and +1'ing the count.

It's a great game. Long live the hardcore gamer spirit.  :fruit:

Add me, and in gaiden too.

I can't provide a snapshot because the game got deleted a long time ago, I can beat it again later if you don't believe me (I remember everything).

I have made a video of me beating gaiden though, it's in another thread on these forums.

Here I make use of the automatic numbered list code and everyone after 523 has been bumped up one number. However if people wish to keep there former number it may be better to replace Murugo's second entry with a dash or note.

Oh and don't even ask how long it took to search through that list for duplicates. (http://Not long at all.)

It would be an honor to find my (nick)name among all the other Guys ;D

4 years.

4 years ago I almost became the guy. I could never get past the father's 2nd form 2nd phase. I kind of put the game down until recently and started a fresh game. Today I've beaten him and it wasn't easy. A lot of children died, but their sacrifice wasn't in vain.

Thank you Kayin for making this ungodly evil game.

I am glad to report that I am The Guy and now I only have and entire game to go through (Gaiden). Had fun playing a insanely hard game (did not think it would be that hard because I play Super Meat Boy). Hopefully the picture shows up... and yes.... I stink at this game.

Clear the game once on Normal. Played it again on Medium, out of curiosity, hoping there was something special about clearing the game after collecting all 6 (5 since I was able to grab one on my Normal playthrough) items, and found nothing =(. Played the Boss Rush and cleared it within 20 mins, nothing special, really. Now, I'm waiting for "IWBTG: Gaiden"'s Full game, for I'm not interested in playing the beta, which is practically a demo IMO.

Beating the guy is something I do for fun. I did however beat him first go in my Let's Play, was pretty happy about that. I've also beaten his first form with the evil save block chasing after you. I like fighting the evil save block version simply because it reinvigorates the challenge of defeating a deadly foe all over again. Congrats to all those other guys out there, and hope for there to be many more to come.

For me the most hard stage is when you have to run because some layer of the ground now just got wheels and its coming for you, haha. I had very hard times with that walls with green herb. Took me a lot pass that.

Well, of course in the final battle I got to fight the green thing again.

Now and then I play the first stages, and I'm pretty good sometimes.
I just love the game, I love playing, it helps me a lot to release stress, and I love see people playing too, hahaha. It's a great game.

:kid:

I just beat the game. I killed the Guy at the same time he killed me, and almost fainted when I realized that I had won. That was at least three times as satisfying as getting 106% in Super Meat Boy. And his second form wasn't too bad except for the third phase. But seriously, F*** the third phase of his first form (bouncing bullets).

I don't know if this is gonna be updated, but can you add me please? Yes, I've been trying to kill THE MADAFAKING SON OF A GOKU GIANT HEAD OF DOOM since 2012. Well, not 2012, since after trying to defeat the giant head for 2500+ times, I left the game for 2 years and a half...

BUT. I. FINALLY. COMPLETED. IT.

Most ball-sucking thing is the white orbs of death. F*CK THEM.

You're just like me in my very very very newbie days, almost 4 or 5 years ago.

I became the guy in 2011. I didn't know this website existed as i took the game from my friends hd.  I loved every horrid second of it.
It reminded me of a time in my youth when I would borrow my friends Snes just to play mortal kombat, you remember, when it was actually fun.
It gave me that childhood nostalgia that I was kicking for.
It was funny, challenging and definately kept me excited for whatever would be coming next.

i have a confession to make. i never became the guy legit. i used cheat engine to slow the game down so i would have more time to react. a lot has changed since then and i became the guy for real today.
i know i played on medium. i'll do a hard run some other time.

This might be necro and sorry if it is, but I also have officially became the guy in 3 modes, and got every item, so I guess I'll add to that number.  ;D

Hi! I just became the guy for my first time! Made an account to tell you.
Hard mode
Can't pull up screenshot, but about 810 deaths
Didn't die in credits (saw it coming a mile away)
DID die right before last shot landed, so I will try to beat him without dieing after I shoot last shot
Hated spike corridor, loved the second spike corridor, loved fighting dracula, hated fighting bowser.
I got to the entrance to the guy (minecart ride) and then erased my computer, TRYING to keep my save... Didn't work. Had to work my way back. The death count would be for my SECOND playthrough, up until minecart.
I would have to say this is an exceptional game! Yea, it's hard, but lost levels is harder then nsmb, right? And yet both games have their supporters, and neither is considered a BAD game, just harder. I loved the subversion, the dying after doing a hard part because of a trap I didn't know was there (those evil eagles in ghosts and goblins after spike corridor!!!) ,the dying after a trap I DID know was there, the twist at the end, the EPIC guy fight, and this game in general. IWBTGs controlls are perfect, everyone says it randomly doesn't double jump and that it is glitchy, but the double jump is thanks to falling off platform first, and the glitches? What glitches? Didn't experience any glitches (just the occasional crash) even on a MAC. USING WINE. VERY well made game, the hitboxes are perfect (I thought they weren't good on vic viper but it turns out going backwards into the wall kills you. Should have put spikes on the wall to make more obvious), no annoying invincibility frames for ANYONE, and an exceptional game with many throwbacks.
I love this game, and plan on playing it for many years to come. I will donate money as soon as I get around to it. Thank you Kayin, for making this great game for no definant profit for you.This game is primarily great, the difficulty adds to it, and makes it so you get to play this great game longer! A mac port without wine would be nice. :)
