Isn't there supposed to be a save point here?
« on: February 27, 2008, 10:40:02 am »

Just a quick question, but I watched a youtube video of somebody playing IWBTG on very hard, and a save point appears in this room on his video, but not on my game. I was just wondering if either he had it set on a difficulty other than very hard (false advertising!) or if a save point is actually supposed to show up here. I mean, I know the game is supposed to be brutal, but it seems a bit TOO brutal to not put a save at least ONE screen before unholy spike pit of eternal despair, you know?! Screen shot attached.

Sorry if this issue has already been addressed. If that's the case just point me in the right direction then lock the thread. Also feel free to insult me and tell me how bad I suck at search.  :D

Thanks, guys.

On Very Hard, there is no save point there.

Was that one of Cloud's videos you were watching?  For the first half of his videos, he says he's playing Very Hard, then by the second half he's saying it's only on Hard.  I didn't play Very Hard on IWBTG back then, but all the saves he finds match Hard.

I know how you feel, as I recently experienced that nasty shock as well.
Very Hard was updated when 1.0 came out, and follows a list of saves that were argued and eventually (mostly) agreed upon here.

Don't worry, you'll get through it!

Eventually.

Also, here's the thread where the discussion happened.

Are you sure there isn't just some weird sky leak above your head?

No lie, though, that last jump in the room where the spikes move up and down is the hardest jump in the game for me. I say this even after (recently) getting all the secret items. It's just so awkward and fancy, imo. Doing 5 rooms before that just makes me want to burn myself with a blowtorch when I get killed, especially since I ALSO have a fairly hard time with Link as well (nowhere near as bad as that god-forsaken jump though. *Shudder*).

I'm not the best with Link either, so it was torture for me as well. Luckily, I got the corridor done in <10 tries.

Whew. I finally got through it, and my biggest fear -- that not only was the save point I thought was supposed to show up removed, but that there was STILL no other save point until after Birdo -- turned out not to be true. Now that I've seen it all, I'm going to have to agree that, yeah, that save point being moved WAS a good idea. You take on added challenge at the beginning of the level in exchange for a slightly easier path to the boss.

Totally agreed. Topic solved, and thus locked. :3
