Title: Progress Report! - How far have you gotten?
Post by: Xylon Lionheart on October 21, 2007, 07:45:27 pm
Let's use this topic to discuss how far we have currently gotten in the game.

I'm currently at the second save point after the Mecha-Birdo fight.

EDIT: Actually, I've just warped back to the beginning.

I've beaten Tyson, Birdo, Clown Copter, and I'm stuck at Mother Brain.

I've beaten Tyson.

I've been swapping between 2 save files, one in the graveyard (stupid spike corridor), and the other in the room where you fall though the vertical spike corridor onto a platform, then again to the next screen.

Currently at the save point before Mother Brain. I kill the first two glass things and the two in the next room, but I always die at some point shortly after that.

I still need to try the upper path with the spikes and death clouds.

I've currently beaten everything possible, but on different files.  Now I'm trying to beat everything on one.

Also, Taco is a WUSS.

I remain stuck at the damn spike corridor. You know the one.

Also, I haven't quite finished the clown copter, but that's mostly for lack of time. I have a pretty clear idea of what to do and just don't have the patience to go through the first forms again right now.

Actually, I still don't know what to do for the second part of that (Wart.) I can get by it, but I've been doing so by standing at the very far right edge of the platform and waiting for the game to get bored and advance to the next part after the Bill is long gone.

Solution: Shoot the mother fucking hell out of that bullet bill.
There are actually two other ways to do it: The easy way, and the hard way. The easy way is to just stand at the very rightmost edge of the platform so that when the thing lands, you're behind it. It's fire, miss you, and vanish a bit later. The hard way is to drop off the left edge of the platform at just the right time so that the bullet bill shoots over you, then use your air jump to get back up. Again, the copter will vanish after a bit.

wow..first off,this game is intense! pretty damn brilliant as well.

but,i've only beaten tyson and mecha-birdo(on 2 seperate files)and now i'm facing mother brain.But it seems as though the little turrets that shoot the green bullets,are shooting WAAAAAAY too fast.i've seen videos(yeah,im sort of cheating by doing it :P)and in those videos,when they get to the point where i'm at,the turrets seem to shoot only a single bullet per minute,as opposed to my turrets which seem to shoot a million bullets a minute.

i dont know if it's a bug or if it's something that was tweaked awhile ago,but i'm stuck there

also,after defeating mecha-birdo,i'm stuck at the 1st room after the first save point...fucking hard and no else has proof that they've done it :P but then again,this is my first post

Annoying thing? I beat all of the Clown Copter's forms in one go, but I died at the end after killing it because I couldn't jump over the ball. And now... I still can't jump over it ever. DX

Post by: Bittersoul on November 09, 2007, 02:40:51 pm
I just finished all six bosses.  I found it tough, but far from impossible.  A bit of patience and a bit of tolerance for the disorder I like to call, "The Platformer Fingers," and there's no reason everyone can't make it through.

I found out many things about myself by which screens I found the toughest.  I have a weakness for moving platform puzzles, timing during falls, and extended avoidance.  Mother Brain was by far the hardest boss for me, and the toughest screen would probably have to be the spike screen of insanity a couple of areas just after Clown Copter, as it seems to combine EVERY platformer weakness I have.

Overall, though, it was absolutely well worth the time and effort.  Counting the minutes to the final release.

(wait, that death counter can't be right... I was sure I died a lot more than that.  ???)

I've now accomplished as much in the game as is possible in this build, and at this point my praises are many, and my criticisms are few.

Someone else mentioned problems with the sound in another thread, and I have to agree. You picked some GREAT music for this game, but only getting to hear the first 10-15 seconds of the song over and over again, interrupted by the repeated sting of the "death music" frustrates me to the point of turning the sound off more often than not. You mentioned removing the "disable sound" feature in the final build to correct the glitch where collecting a unit with the sound off freezes the game. If you do this, I highly recommend changing it so that dying doesn't interrupt the music. I don't know why, but it makes dying repeatedly a million times more frustrating.

Also, and I don't know if this has been brought up before or not, there are some places where the audio levels can be a bit iffy. It seems like the music is at a normal level on one screen, and then blaring loud on the next. Two examples of this are when you pick up Mike Tyson's unit (that... doesn't sound wholesome) and when you hit the Tetris screen. It's pretty jarring.

Other than that, though, the game's pretty much perfect. The boss I had the hardest time with was Mother Brain, and the easiest one for me was the Clown Copter, but I think the bosses are balanced really well, and I wouldn't change anything about them (except to fix glitches and whatnot.)


Again, thanks a ton for the game, and I can't wait for the final version.
Title: Re: Progress Report! - How far have you gotten?
Post by: Kayin on November 22, 2007, 04:54:00 am
I'm glad you enjoyed it. Anyways I don't know if I'd disable tthe death music. That sort of adds to the suddenness of deaths -- but hopefully eventually I can have the music resume. As for the death counter, it only records deaths from when you save. So if you die a lot and it, you lose those deaths and time. In later releases I'm going to try and have it quick save those stats before reloading.

After playing through the game on Medium and Hard, I decided to play through it on Very Hard.

The only save point in the Graveyard is the first one. That means that one has to get through the moving spikes, the moving platform tunnel, and then the next two (admittedly easier) screens and then kill Mecha Birdo all without dying.

Why don't I just stick it on Impossible then?

So far I've gotten all 5 bosses except the USSR Death Machine. My save file messed up and it says I did everything in about an hour and 70 deaths. Major lie. (Edit: My mistake, it was saved over. IDDQD)

For practice there, just play up to that point on hard or medium (it should take less than ten minutes, five if you take the shortcut) and use the save before the warhead.  That way you can practice over and over again until it's much more comfortable.

Post by: finale on December 02, 2007, 03:07:20 am
I've got two medium level files, which is as high in difficulty as I'll ever go, thanks.

In one, I'm at the Clown Copter, and stuck on its third form. In the second,I've beaten Tyson, and am now at Mecha Birdo.

In general, I've found that I do just fine, when I'm the only thing that's moving, even if the task is tough. Processing multiple objects in motion really ups my difficulty. For example, with the exception of the QuickMan  room and the second moving block room to some degree, the path to the clown copter was a breeze- roughly ten deaths. By contrast, I've died over 200x overall in that file.

I die a lot more than my counter lets on.  I also use either more, or less time.  I idle a lot in the game when I'm playing it between doing other things.

In your defense, the death counter messes up sometimes.
I'm willing to blame that. On another note,

I just finished dracula 5 minutes ago and he was my last boss. Those Medusa Head were almost as anoying as the real castlevania. My death count is really crap... 396 deaths. To my defence I played untill really late at night so I had less reflexes, but yes I do suck. I can't wait for the final game so I can finally be The Guy. In the meantime I'll take a good rest and try not to dream(or have nightmares) about the game like I had the last few days, haha. Thanks for the game, I hate you!

I do have a good strategy against everything now.  It's just that in the heat of the moment, after the fourth form, I get too excited and forget to implement it.  Needless to say, the time I won was the one time I kept my cool the entire fight. XD

Well, I am AT The Guy on Hard(won't play Medium)...I've gotten to his third pattern(since he hasn't changed sprites, I refuse to say "form"). So far, I've pretty much beaten this game on my own(except for me accidentally seeing how to enter Castlevania in Cloud8745's videos...But I likely wouldn't have found it on my own). After I finish it, I'm likely to go back through on Very Hard...

...What? I completed the 1% Metroid Fusion and Hard Mode 8% Zero Mission challenge...And I'm a Commmdore 64 veteran. I live and breathe challenge! ;D

1% Metroid Fusion was fun and interesting.
Hard mode at 15% has repeadidly handed me my ass with all the trimmings.

Have 5 bosses beaten, last one is down a spike corridor of death near the quick beams, can't get past it.

On a brighter note I'm starting a video walkthrough, 4 parts done and up to Mecha Birdo. Fortunately SnagIt has onlyglitched on the second screen with the rising platform, I always fell through it so I had to skip it, its in the vid though.(Although I skipped the 3rd screen so I could get past it and save.) <.<

I have beat Mike Tyson and Mecha Birdo.
I'm at the save point right before Dracula, and I found the Castlevania area to be annoying in that I would always land on the edge of the last set of moving platforms right when they're about to hit a wall...

Not really, because when closed in with Ectoplasms and Homing Apples you can haver a fairly good chance of getting out of there, but with the white balls, you're almost certainly screwed if you jump.

Also, I haven't quite finished the clown copter, but that's mostly for lack of time. I have a pretty clear idea of what to do and just don't have the patience to go through the first forms again right now.

Actually, I still don't know what to do for the second part of that (Wart.) I can get by it, but I've been doing so by standing at the very far right edge of the platform and waiting for the game to get bored and advance to the next part after the Bill is long gone.

Well, to begin with I can only get to Gustman and then die (n00b shouts the crowd)

I just restarted on Hard Mode, and I'm already on the Quickman segment before the Klown Kar, and beaten the other 5 bosses. That was shockingly fast.

I'm stuck there for the third time. Once was on medium. Then I decided to play on hard (I thought I could handle it, the ribbon was getting to me). Then the birdo save glitch happened, so now I'm doing it for a third time.

No, it does NOT generate a save file. At least, it didn't do it in previous versions. I have no idea about the current one, but I assume not.

Beat Giant fire breathing Mike Tyson today. Simpler than I expected, i would've thought he'd go for at least one more round. I also beat giant green hulk guy a while ago. I got so pissed off because I didn't know bosses were necessary to win the game so it looked like I could have just gone the regular lower path and skipped all the trouble, but now I'm glad i did it. Currently stuck on the graveyard with the nasty moving spike corridor and on a different save I'm trying to get past bowser/wiley. And on save 3, mother brain. Although I did get the secret item near there.

My friend has beaten the hulk and is fighting bowser, so if we shared saves and worked for a while i suppose we would have bowser and the metroid thing left.

If you're sucking on a boss, then just move on to the next one, then go back to it later. Remember, you're not trying to speed run this boss rush, you're not trying to get 8 minutes or something, you're trying to beat it. Even 29:59 will cut it.

Whew, took me yesterday and today, but I beat the game on Hard and got all 6 special items! Woot!
Hardest parts - Mother Brain and Dragon (Omg yes I know!)
Easiest parts - Birdo and Kraidgief (Totally the opposite of other people)

Anyways, does anyone know when the items are going to be of use? Took me all day today to get them...Anyways yeah, I was happy to beat this game and only lost my sanity once and it was during mother brain T_T.

That gives the bugged boss rush that you can't finish because you continue on after beating a boss. I used the bugged rush, fought the guy, pressed E+N+D, and at the end of the credits I dodged the slow falling apple which unlocked the real boss rush. I wasn't trying to. I just saw the rush option after I finished and did some searching on the forums to figure out what I did.

Actually it does. You learn how to learn how to get past the traps so it doesn't seem hopeless, but things get harder so you're stuck longer. So it doesn't seem as bad even though it is ...

The only thing you can do is focus on jumping.  Mash your shoot button at all times.  That's all you can do.

That's it. I'm stuck on the stupid spike tunnel after Mike Tyson. You know the one. :-\ I always die at the last couple of spikes. It just seems impossible to get past them.

Just don't give up, it's so worth it when you learn to get past each screen and you get that great sense of accomplish... atleast until some random spike floor comes crashing down and kills you right before you save.

As you can see, I'm not in a hurry to become the guy :P The only 2 things needed to become the guy is a steep learning curve and some exceptional patience :P

i'm at koopa, second form pisses me off.
you have really to mash the fire button and kill your keyboard to pass that.
and the 3rd form is hard but more fun than the 2nd form.

I'm fighting The Guy right now.  I get to the last phase, and then screw up.  It honestly doesn't feel as difficult as some of the other sections, yet I keep effing it up all the same.  >_>  I'm DYING to become The Guy.

I never thought I would, but I'm playing through the whole thing again, in Hard. It's being a lot easier and more fun now, too. I've already killed all 6 bosses and I'm heading to the Guy's castle now. I didn't have any problems with any of the bosses. Of course, I died a little, but not much. I probably died more in the couch hell (I mean hall ;D) than in any boss. Not even Mother Brain, which only took me a few tries (I thought she'd be harder than the guy, since at least I can easily remember the Guy's pattern, while MB's is too complex, so I had to improvise).

 I've got all the secret items except the G&G and the Guy's Castle ones. I've seen a video of the Castle's and it doesn't seem too hard, but the G&G one is terrible. The jump in the previous screen is really hard, and once you make it you have to avoid that damn spike... And once you clear it, you still have to get past the whole thing, which seems nearly as hard as the secret item area in Kirby's land (Which wasn't so hard to do, but at least I could reload and try again right away!).

I'm gonna rest a little now, since I'm getting Devil May Cry 4... And my fingers are starting to hurt (I obviously need a new keyboard, this one's too old and its keys really hard when you press them... I'll be buying one soon).

i'm at koopa, second form pisses me off.
you have really to mash the fire button and kill your keyboard to pass that.
and the 3rd form is hard but more fun than the 2nd form.
You can just walk to the very right edge and the bullet bill will miss.

Hell yeah, that's what I do. I don't care if it's a bug or an "unintended feature": I hate mindless button mashing.


PS: I don't think I'm gonna play Very Hard mode. It looks doable, but the lack of save points (Specially after bosses!) make it seem way too frustrating and annoying for me. Sure, that's what I said about Hard mode back in the day, and here I am ;D

Still, now I notice hard mode save points are really well placed, as they never force you to get through two really hard parts in a row. On the other hand, very hard's do. In fact, I believe you need to get past the spike hall AND the following stage, and maybe even the next one too, without saving. Not that the spike hall's too hard now that I know the timing of the last spikes (You need to jump just as soon as they touch the ground if I remember correctly), but getting through 2 really hard stages in a row, plus probably another stage with some moving platform jumping... Well, it seems excesive to me.

Not to mention that tricky jump right after Mecha Birdo.

wow I love this game so much. and hate it too at the same time.

I've beaten 3 of 6 bosses, but skipped one. I probably took the weirdest route possible. I started by going down into the spike room and spent like an hour there and I am proud to say I figured it out on my own. And so I went through and beat Clown Chopper and then skipped Dracula. Then I warped back to the beginning and went through to the room of divine transportation and went down to Tetris and beat Krazein (or however the hell you spell that) and Mother Brain and warped back again. Now you'd think I'd finally take the up route like everyone does. But no. I started screwing around in the beginning screen, went back to room of divine transport and saved not realizing that keeps you stuck there. But I did manage to escape into the secret passage on the first screen that bypasses Mike Tyson and takes you right to Mecha Birdo. So this means I'm in line to get through everything and go back at the end and beat Tyson last. ugh. at least it's kinda unique though.

I beat the game on Very Hard today.
2:8:20
204 Deaths

My death count now is much, much, much lower than my hard death count, which was 1 thousand 6 something. I don't remember the exact death count because my younger bro overwrote that file. When I beat the guy, exactly what happened to Cloud8745 happened to me! I got hit by one of his attacks, yet I still beat him. I got hit by the apple at the end because my frame skip version didn't let the kid get all the way to the tree before it fell.

The Guy's face didn't show up, so
: show
I ended up using the E N D code to see the credits without beating him.


Nonetheless, all I care to do now is collect all the secret items. I have 4 left.

I just beat Mother Brain on Very Hard (That was a lot easier than I expected. Sure, I had to kill her 5 or 6 times till I actually pulled it off, but she was easy this time ;D). That's my 6th boss :P

So now I'm supposed to get through the whole mine cart ride without dying. And after that, something that's probably much worse: getting from the beginning of the castle to the end of the labyrinth without a single save.

I especially hate that leap of faith to the moving platform in the 3rd room. God, I'm gonna have to practice that and learn the timing if I expect to pull it off o.O

At least, it's really easy once you get past the labyrinth... Wish me luck!

I'm just at Mecha-Birdo myself. Jesus that boss epic and kinda hard. Well, she's not actually THAT hard, it just takes practice. And LOTS of patience.


That is also one of the best boss battle songs I've ever heard. It's my second favorite song in the game so far, next to the Guilty Gear Isuka (sp?) one, "Home sweet Grave" (it's the first song you hear in-game).

Also,

: show
I have to say, I got mega-pissed when I hit one of the "live" warheads in the 3rd phase, simply due to the fact that it not only was unexpected, but because it happened when I almost beat her (I think anyway).

I really haven't gotten anywhere, so you know that's not why I'm posting here.

Now, I told my friend about IWBTG, and he said he's gotta play it. He thought it wouldn't be that bad.
How wrong he was.

Gotta say, though, he's doing great. Through an extension of Skype that uses screen sharing, I've been helping him out a bit. I've watched a good plenty of let's plays and will give him cryptic hints to what hes doing wrong. By cryptic, I mean it'll still take him 5 minutes before he's even on the right track.

He's taking a break now. Has been all summer for the most part. But he deserves it. Mother Brain is the final thing stopping him. even with knowing how to beat her, we had quite a few 3 hour sessions with no success.

Perhaps the most saddening parts of his play through was when he had beaten Dracula after about 30 or so tries, and forgot to save before suiciding. It took him around 60 more to do it again.

We'll probably be at it again soon. Hell, I might record it.

I just beat Mecha-Birdo tonight, much faster than I expected. It helps with the second form if you focus a bit more on getting from egg to egg rather than worrying about the lasers.

However, the point three screens after that is where I really get frustrated-the second screen with Bionic Commando music, and the first one you see those floating turrets. I kill the first one with ease, and drop down to take out the second one only for the bloody spike to shoot out and splatter The Kid when I least expect it.

I tried waiting until he fell all the way down before jumping up. Too late. I tried using the mid-air jump about halfway down-too early, and I couldn't get back on the ledge, leaving The Kid to plummet to a spike-slamming hell. I guess I have to use my mid-air jump around the time his feet are roughly the same altitude as the top of the spike.

Yay, my first post on the IWBTG forums! I got the game for the first time on Thursday night, so I've had it for a little less than 4 days now, though I've only been seriously playing for 2 of them. I took the bottom path first, skipped Metroid, as I didn't know it existed at the time, beat KKK (day 1), took the top path, beat Mike Tyson and Mecha-birdo(day 2), and then pushed through Castlevania to beat Dracula before I went to bed last night. On Hard v_v no idea how many deaths I have, as I'm posting from work on my lunch break.

My brother is playing as well, though he's playing on Wuss mode, because he is a wuss ^_^ He's on Kraidgief, if anyone actually cares how far someone got on Medium... I sure don't. He's been busy playing Spore lately, so I expect that I'll pass him up in short order.

In closing, I would like to congratulate the creators on making a game that has made me curse and scream and declare instances of shenanigans than every other game I've played put together. You've accomplished something that I would never have expected of anything, and that's something to be proud of. I salute you.

Finished on Hard today without any secret items. Ok, I admit, I played this with a not-so-fast school computer with the Slomo mode, meaning that some parts (Especially Dracula) were quite easy.

Next stop: V.Hard with the secret items?

Today I decided to actually try out this beast of a game, and started off on hard mode.
I've killed Zangief and am currently at the second save spot at the place with MM2 insta-kill beams.

So far, I've played really badly, it may be because I'm sort of feverish and have a cold, BUT STILL I will finish this game no matter what!

IWBTG as whole is an insta-kill before you even start up the game!

I'm currently trying to get past the section after beating the clown copter bosses. It's insane... I mean, after a boss fight, THERE SHOULD BE A SAVE POINT DAMNIT D:

Post by: AND4H on January 22, 2009, 01:10:07 am
I know it's out of nowhere, but has anyone ever BEATEN or SEEN someone beat impossible yet?  I kinda want to give it a go as of late.

I've beaten the game 4 times... well 3, but I got to the last boss on my 2nd file, but I was too lazy to finish the job.

My first run on Hard took 1320 deaths (which I extended to 1337 for fun  ;D)
My 2nd (the noncomplete one) is at around 730.
My 3rd run, which was my first Very Hard run, took 340 deaths (it's now 384 because I decided to think it was a good idea to try to get the collectible in the Kraidgief section)
My 4th run, also Very Hard and just completed today took 83 deaths (in actuality it should probably be over 100, the game LOVES to crash on me).
It's clear that I'm getting better, but it seems that most of my deaths came from the Mine cart, the section after Bowser, the Ghouls 'n Ghosts area, and the first half of the Guy's fortress.  :D

Post by: AND4H on January 22, 2009, 03:46:12 am
Do you really think people beat impossible?  While possible (though not probable by any means) that someone has beaten it, wouldn't there be at least some DOCUMENTATION of it?  As far as I know, a Google search has brought up nothing (although it has brought up a Youtube video of a 4 boss run on impossible, posted on the 18th of November, impressively enough).

Either way, I WANT to beat it, but I am pretty sure I lack the patience or willpower to actually succeed at the task.  So far, on the upper path, I'm CONSISTENTLY getting to and through Tyson (a good start, I suppose), but the Ghouls 'n Ghosts section keeps tripping me up due to MY STUPIDITY (IE: Link stabbing me, moving spikes were the MAJOR ones, but I've gone so far in my failure as to jump RIGHT into the spikes at the moving platforms on the 2nd screen before Mecha Birdo... heck, I even allowed a ZOMBIE to kill me once!).

My ventures on the left path have ended in mostly bloodshed.  I'm consistent up to immediately after Tetris.  For some reason, I always choke up when dealing with the moving spike wall.  However, on one attempt, I did manage to get to Kraidgief and killed him with the glitch (unintentionally, I didn't realize K, which was my jump button, was the trigger.  I don't intend to kill him with the glitch in a successful run).  On this same run I managed to get to and through the Koopa Clown Car (at first, I was going to go to Mother Brain, but then I realized that the post-KCC section was more brutal than the post-MB section, so I went that way first, hoping to get the harder part out of the way).  Of course, I failed instantaneously on the spiked ceiling room immediately after the KCC.  Oh well... back to the drawing board.

I was stuck on 3 bosses (Tyson, Birdo, Kraidgief) for a few weeks, and then spent 2 hours a day for 4 days on Wily, working on him (imagine my horror to find the screen after it) and after beating Wily about 20 times, managed to get to the save point. 2 hours later, I was at Dracula, and after a mere 3 hours, even breaking for dinner, I managed to take HIM down too!

So now I'm at 5 bosses, with a super trigger finger thanks to Wily, and new dexterity thanks to Dracula. Now to go after Mother Brain (which I'm stuck at on my other save). I actually think I can take her now, with my new skills. IWBTG really does improve your platforming skills a LOT.

EDIT: Yes. Mother Brain is down! On to the Castle of the Guy!

Started playing (on hard mode) like two weeks ago stopped playing for a week and I'm finally at the Hall of Former Guys. I'll beat it when I get the chance. I'll probably play on very hard mode soon after.

I love the game though. And it's challenging but I really don't think it's nearly as difficult or frustrating as some people say it is.

I've beaten the game on Very Hard, got the secret items, and beat the boss rush in under 20 minutes.  I'm trying to find the "secret area" that appears after the items, but I can't find it.  How do you reach it? :fruit:
There's no such area.

I defeated Clown-copter, mecha-birdo and tyson. I'm starting the left path now.
How did you get to clown copter without going through that big green dude?
EDIT: The answer is lower path. I'm feeling pretty slow today :(

Playtime : 13:5:40
Deaths : 1653

I've got one save that's stuck on Clown Copter, one save stuck on Tyson, and one save stuck on Kraidgreif (I think that's how you spell it). I also made off with the first secret item.

EDIT: Page master with my first post >:D *shot*
EDIT2: My Kraidgreif save is now past him (also I'm talking about the sub-boss just after the Room of Divine Transportation, just before the Tetris part). IMO, the Tetris part was harder, but now I'm stuck on the spike chase.
EDIT3: My Tyson save is now on Mecha Birdo.

The only thing you can do is practice,practice, and practice some more.  There's really no special trick to it, you just have to be able to watch the rinkas, watch the guns, and know when the guns are going to shoot the shots at you.

Jumping back and forth between the bar and the spot right in front of Mother Brain helps, and at times you may have to move to the platform before the bar to avoid the rinkas.  Other than that, you just have to practice, learn, and get a feel for what's going on at all times in that room.

Registering to share my pain with people (Who already know all about the pain).

Been playing for about 5 days. First run through, Hard difficulty. I've beaten Mike Tyson, Mecha Birdo, Beat Dracula twice (How I hate Dracula. I hates him I hates him I hates him!), the first time he killed me when he took his "true form". Kraidgeif is also dead. The rooms with the chasing spikes... HATE. Presently up to Mother Brain. Doing the averages, I have died about once every ten seconds of play time, over the last four hours of game time.

Edit: Killed mother brain, completed the escape sequence. Im in springy sofa land. I managed to get killed about 152 times in 8 minutes there before deciding to take a break.

Edit, gotten through the sofa room, the room called the "Snake room" was pretty easy, got through that and the ones following it with only 12 deaths total, up to Bowser, my final boss before I can visit happy fun land. Still working out how to deal with him.

Edit: Bowser defeated. I'm now a few saves ahead of that.

Edit: I have killed the Dragon and entered the Guys castle.

Edit: I am through the entrance, the labyrinth, and through the early part of the hall of former guys. I am up to the breakout and R-type section. Now I shall take a nap. I hate the room of bouncing apples and walljumps that is on fire. So much hate for it. I'm gonna go take a nap.

So I'm at Birdo, I made it okay and managed to come far, and then I died to one of those blinkin' eggs... (BTW, "blinkin'" is a fun word to say. Blinkin'. Blinkin'. Heh.)

Edit: Well, I manage to come pretty far most of the time, but this bug keeps killing me... When you fight Mecha Birdo, and when his eyes start to explode for the first time, sometimes you fall through the platform you're standing on. Arrgh! It doesn't kill me everytime, maybe 25% of the time. Still annoying though.

Edit 2: I beat Birdy, the third phase was really easy. I don't agree that he's the hardest boss, Mother Brain and Dracula was harder. I like the second phase, the first was kinda slow, though.

Edit 3: I'm at the ride now. The Guy's Fortress, here I come!

Edit 4: I've completed the ride, which wasn't too hard. Now it's time to fight a dragon!

Edit 5: I'm at the Entrance of the Guy, I keep dying to fire... How come the kid explodes when touching fire, anyway? Is he made of dynamite or something?

Edit 6: Well, I've reached the Labyrinth, I don't think I will even attempt it now.

Edit 7: I now have 5/6 of the secret items, just one left to go. I might have to take that one on another run, though. I have now saved outside the Guy, but my hand is hurting. I will not even attempt to beat him today, I might do it tomorrow.

I didn't really like motherbrain either, I got nasty hand cramps from trying to do it, but I figured out a way that pretty much gets me there 80-90% of the time.

I'm pretty new to this site, to platformers and to "Nintendo Hard" games, as TvTropes would say, but IWBTG is the first "really fucking hard platform game" that I've managed to plough through. I have Ninja Gaiden on xbox, and if you collect stuff you can unlock Ninja Gaiden NES, and I gave up on that after 3 levels.

Anyway, I'm up to The Guy himself, on Hard, I can get past the first 4 phases pretty reliably, but as everyone no doubt knows, the last two are wrist-slitting kitten-punching baby-eating funtastic. I've managed to get halfway through the final phase before fucking myself up and choking on a fireball :(. Even though I haven't finished the game, I've gotta say, it's a pretty amazing, fun and hilarious effort. I really liked the Infamous Spike Wall on Wheels, the Mine Cart section and the Palace of the Guy :). I will also make sure to introduce this lovely game to my friends, who I'm sure will enjoy every minute of it.

Dracula can go suck a fat one though. Stupid homing apple cherry Delicious Fruit...

It's named like that because that is exactly what I yelled at my screen when it first happened to me.

EDIT: Apparently that elevator is just before the Guy. So, I'm at the Guy.

EDIT2: YES! Snagged the Evil Save.

Post by: avengah on November 06, 2010, 04:49:56 am
Yeah, the mine cart ride is horrid on Very Hard, isn't it. Mainly due to getting stuck in walls. I did finally do it, though.

I've got a nice, neat save file screen. File 1 is Medium, File 2 is Hard, File 3 is Very Hard. All three are complete with 0 deaths (don't get me wrong, I did die a lot but just didn't bother saving after dying). Files 1 and 2 are saved at the Divine Room of Teleportation, and File 3 is saved just before The Guy (since there's no save in the teleport room on Very Hard).

Post by: Valkema on November 06, 2010, 08:57:05 am
well I have 3 files

one on medium which is my first game which used to have 3500+ deaths but no only has 35 and the timer used to be 10h+ but not is 0:10:20 so yeah glitches are an amazing thing

Second is on very hard at 0 deaths and time is 27:20. Real time while recording was 29:26 but IWBTG's timer is off.

Last Save is on Impossible deaths are 1 for some reason I have no Idea why. (I guess I died when I was trying to get the save before the guy after I beat the game.) and time is 41:30.

All these save files are Completed with all bosses dead.
Don't Believe me:

2 deaths?!

The only way to achieve that would be to either close out the game whenever you die and restart that part (as to not get deaths recorded) or to use Cheat Engine.

I don't really believe it either but people have beat it on impossible and on v. hard with no deaths as well so it isn't impossible.

Post by: Brendonian on April 30, 2011, 02:57:41 pm
I recently just beat the game on Hard with about 1700 deaths.  The first 1/3 or so of the game was no mystery to me, since I was inspired to play the game after watching Jman on youtube for a while.  Pretty much all the rest was done blind (except the labyrinth of the guy after spending like 2 hours in there lost...yes...I cheated)

Anyway, would anyone like to recommend a next fangame to play?  Something a little harder but equal in fun factor to IWBTG.

(By the way, I really enjoyed the game and thought Kayin did a terrific job balancing and getting everything right)

1600+ deaths, 7 months of effort.

I finally made it to the guy around February of 2011. During one of the times I was fighting him, my computer overheated and crashed, inevitably causing complete memory loss. I lost all of it, after all of that work.

So now, almost 9 months later, i'm finally ready to tackle IWBTG once and for all.

I'm starting the game again on December 5th for my 24hr Donation stream. Wish me luck :)


EDIT: for the record, Wish me luck, means the 24 hour stream. Not the gameplay, lol

Update. I beat Dracula, found a trick that works (no point in telling it since every one probably knows it) I also defeated Kraidgief (pretty sure that is his name) I probably would not have been able to beat him so easily if it were not for a glitch where the game skipped from the end of the first phase of the battle to the third and he was stuck in the ground with his head right at eye level unable to hit me. Now I am at the Clown Car battle and Dr. Wily is insane. I have to admit though I liked the room with the lasers in between Kraidgief and the Clown Car. Only 4 more bosses inclusing the clown car and The Guy.

Stuck on the rising platform in the upper path on one save (Second screen, I am horrible at weaving through those spikes...) and on the save I'm currently using I've made it through the first two or three screens of the lower path. On the attempt at the left I got to the
: show
bullet jumping (Thanks Kaizo)
before I decided to start over and go down instead.

I am horrible at this game. But one day... ONE DAY... I will succeed.

 GAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

I HAD it! but then I jumped and expected a trap to go off at the save point and overshot the platform! WHY DO YOU TORMENT ME SO,  :kid:?!

Fighting Mike Tyson now. All this doesn't seem nearly as hard as it did before; I think I'm getting better!

*Messes up the jump over an uppercut*

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

So I ran through the sky part in about 5 minutes with a good 30-40 respawns. I'm proud of myself.


One of my friends has beaten the game on Impossible though. I am so inadequate xD

I am proud however. I GOT TO MIKE TYSON!

And for some reason his second uppercut after I knock him down homes in on me no matter how far away I get.

No, he's not, but I believe him because I've seen him play a huge variety of games in the past three years and I can count the number of times he has failed at ANY game during that time on one hand.

Meanwhile I'm still dueling with Iron Mike. That evil grinning :fruit: :fruit: :fruit: is still homing in on me from across the room.

We'll see what I can do.

If I pressed the K key multiple times to kill Kraidgief instantly, that would just be cheating, imo, so I'm not using the K key for the Kraidgief battle.

How to pass Kraidgief easily:

Suicide when falling in the big hole.

That's cheating though

I've never actually beaten kraidgief legitimately. I tried like 5 times and he always grabbed me and did that japanese gameshow thing. I learned about that little trick later and haven't bothered to do it for real all these years later
