I Wanna Be The Guy is a game like nothing you've ever played before. The game follows the quest of The Kid as he tries to become The Guy. He battles through insane modded levels from Mega Man, Zelda, Metroid, Ghosts N Goblins to many more. The boss fights are something else too. From Dracula, Mecha Birdo, Giant Mike Tyson, Bowser/Wart/Dr. Wily Clown Car combo to my personal favorite, a giant green Zangief/Kraid hybrid that shoots Hadoukens out of his mouth and Blankas out of his crotch are among some of the epic boss fights.
The game is simply put, beautiful. IWBTG is a tribute to the 8-bit era with extremely frustrating level design and a great musical selection from some classic games. Download the game and let us know what you think of it. If you keep getting stuck or are too afraid to even try this game out after watching the above video, then check out Nikumatic's YouTube profile for the entire run of the game spread throughout 46 different videos.
