Oh man, I haven't played this in a long time so I'll be a little rusty. I'd like to break at least 200k.

81,590.  I hate this game with a passion.  It might as well be a one life game because if you die anywhere and can't get an axe you're screwed.  It's also weird trying to play this one for points rather than just trying to get through the levels.

It's not that bad actually you can make it to the next axe!  it's just a little bit damn hard in some levels.  Not as bad as, say... Nemesis on Game Boy.

Much like Battletoads this game requires a ton of memorization and it's really freaking hard.

Agree to disagree, lol. Battletoads is one of my faves.

 

I also like Adventure Island but it is really frustrating.

I don't tend to like games where you have to memorize a lot of patterns, so that's why I don't care for these.  I did play (and actually beat) Adventure Island back in the day.

You like Rush n Attack and I thought that was really difficult and heavy on the memorization.

Really?  Huh, I guess I didn't think about that.  I always thought Rush n Attack was kind of average in the difficulty department.

I put in some effort for the contest and I couldn't beat the second level.

 

But I didn't grow up with it and I've never played it much. The one hit deaths and lack of continues add to the difficulty.

Strange to think of Rush n' Attack as being harder than Adventure Island.  I guess it's all in what kind of games you're used to.

It probably isn't harder.

 

Adventure Island has the benefit of infinite continues. Otherwise it would be almost impossible to beat.
