Games that have made you RAGE QUIT!

Well after i browsed through my Past thread I remember telling someone that I threw my ipod at a wall after playing labyrinth 2. He then told me that It be cool if someone started a thread about freakishly hard games that you should avoid. Sothis thread is about your story of when you rage quitted after playing an iphone game. Well my story was; "Yer, like I was playin Labyrinth 2, the hard level type thinggy when i got stuck on A VERY HARD level that I coupdn't finish. After trying and retrying, i only had one reaction: i threw my ipod at a wall! But luckilly my warranty covered it." quote from post. Well that's what happened.

SO IS YOUR STORY OF WHEN YOU RAGE QUITTED AFTER AN IOS GAME??

Lots of times!
Well, maybe not so much RAGE!!!!, but definitely GRRR, Quit, Never reload again!
Angry Birds did that A LOT, but I think that's due to it's random physics gameplay.
The game WAS good, and I liked it, but the fact that levels were designed in such a way that only sheer luck would beat them, kinda annoyed me a bucketload.

If anyone's tried Sheep Goes Left yet, you'll notice that, after a level's defeated you 3 times, you'll get a little Skip button. Hopefully this goes a little way to help. (because it was starting to RAGE me a bit as I was making the levels!)

I may just suck at it, but I could not get past that stupid giant dog in NOVA 2.
Also league of evil does that to you if you play to long.

Totally agree with you here. Physics based games, especially ones where beating the level is a matter of microseconds of timing or moving your finger up .00001 cm, always make me angry. >:O

Unfortunately, I have an entire folder of games like that...

nice thread:

1. Soul. Definitely got my blood pressure soaring due to rage
2. League of Evil, impossible mission, stage 3, trying to get a perfect level. I remember screaming more than once at nothing in particular.
3. Fastball 2. In several levels it needed a tap at precisely the correct instant to cross an obstacle. And there would be a series of such obstacles. It got ridiculous after a point.
4. Gravity runner. It got real tough in the end!

Tried and died a few hundred times, but i'll give the entire campaign another go on my 4g now (deleted out of frustration on the 1g). Might be easier if the game runs a bit smoother.

Lol, I already told you that you had to alternate between paralyzing and shooting + running. It's easy. You'll get it next time around without any difficulty.

The only game I remember that fits this for me was The Impossible Game. That shit was a bitch. There's been a few other games that I deleted once I reached levels that were too hard to be rewarding upon finishing them though. But yeah, these are generally puzzle games I guess.
