I Wanna Be The Guy: The Movie: The Game is a purposefully rock hard platform game with a retro style that is designed to unfairly kill you at every turn. As the developer says: Do YOU have what it takes to be The Guy?

This game is unfair, but it's designed to be that say, so actually it is fair! It's a 'sardonic love letter' to early video games, where unfair death was a normality. I Wanna Be The Guy takes this idea and ups the difficulty and the death. This is a game that requires pixel perfect jumping, exquisite timing and more patience than anyone is likely to have. However, if you like a challenge, this may be irresistible.

Controls are via the keyboard, and I Wanna Be The Guy's little hero works pretty normally: He can double jump and shoot, and suffers from one-touch-death! Every screen has to be learnt by experience, meaning pretty much everything you see will kill you, and you then have to remember everything to survive to the exit. There are save points, but not in every screen.

I Wanna Be The Guy is not for everyone. It will amuse older gamers who remember tough 80s gaming, and it will keep anyone who loves hard games happy. However, the difficulty is so high that many players will simply want to give up.
