I Wanna Be the Guy is an intentionally frustrating platformer which thrives on giving the player unfair and unexpected deaths.

GameplayEdit

The game's main mechanic is its difficulty. The kid utilizes a double jump ability, and an incredibly weak pistol to take on a plethora of challenges, such as pixel perfect jumps, boss fights that require split second timing, and wall-jumps that require incredibly agile finger to pull off consistently. The game also adds additional challenges, such as bats and Medusa heads that knock you to your death, spikes that instantly kill you, and fruit that does likewise, however, the fruit habitually defies the laws of physics in order to fall in the direction least convenient to the player.

TriviaEdit

  • I Wanna Be the Guy was made in MMF2.
  • This game has very active forums.
