Hardest Game in the App Store?

What do you think?

There are a lot of hard platformers, but I'm thinking ChocoRun and 774 Deaths are the absolute hardest the app store has to offer.

Runners up might be, LOE (the impossible missions,) LOE 2 on the later missions, impossible game, 1-bit ninja, stardash, frenzy pop (the hard mode,) maybe cheeseman, mos speed run and I'm sure I missed a bunch! Also, Monster flip gets hard as well for a cute puzzle game.

All in all, none of these are as hard a 774 deaths and chocorun IMHO. I'd even put chocorun at the top.... Wait maybe 1-bit ninja..... Lol!!!!

Did I miss any super hard games in the app store?

Well the Impossible Game is pretty damn hard. Can't even finish level 1 without 150+attempts on practise mode.

774 Deaths from Square Enix is f***in brutal. some of the challenges require pixel perfect timing just to get through.

Run Roo Run's hard levels are quite difficult as well. Mainly the same reason that made 774 Deaths brutal.

To some extent, Gravity Guy. The difficulty with runner games comes with how you cant control the forward movement of the characters, and Gravity Guy gives the game a level of speed that makes it difficult.

This isnt considering those games with IAP paywall as those can still be easy when IAP is taken advantage of.

Hi Bacon,

As you said, ChocoRun and 774 Deaths are the hardest games in the App Store. I checked plenty of games in the app store, but ChocoRun and 774 Deaths are the hardest among the rest.

Good Thread.Why?I consider myself An Harcore Console Gamer,Play Games From more than 35 Years,Starting Play on Atari,then Commodore 64,Amiga,Then All The Sony Generations of Consoles,Time When There wasn't easy Games,and Now,From The exception of DEMON SOULS,DARK SOULS Games,And THE EVIL WITHIN play on Akumu Mode,all The Others Title Don't Give Me any Challenge,so i Play Them at The Hardest Difficulty Setting.Since i'm Also an iOS Gamer,i'm Not See Difficult Games,and i Encourage Every Developers To Give us Hard Games.Now i Haven't Play The Game You Mentioned Like ChocoRun And 774 Deaths,on My iOS Hundreds Games Library The More Difficult Are IRE:BLOOD MEMORY,and RADIATION ISLAND played On Survival Mode,and this say All About iOS Harcore Games,A Platform Where 99% Are Casual Gamers.I Really Hope Some Developers reading This Thread,and Think About This.
