The last level of Blimp. A rather tough 'kill everything' level followed immediately by a 'OMG Self Destruct in :30 RUN AWAY!!!' level. The problem is that you have to run away through tiny, tiny corridors with tons of 90 degree turns and environmental hazards at the absolute maximum speed to make it out with even a second to spare. Oh, and in this game if you run into a wall at anything near full speed it'll take off around 40% of your HP. And you're already beat up from the 'kill everything' level you just finished and there's no more HP recovery items lying around. The closest I ever came was getting to the finish line with :01 remaining and killing myself by landing on the landing platform too fast (Because I had ONE SECOND LEFT!!). Haven't touched it since.

It's been sitting on my 'Games I'm playing' page since last year and has really made me think about designing overly difficult last levels in games. Specifically, whether making the final boss of Gomi not have a checkpoint between the 2nd and 3rd rounds was a good idea or not. It's the whole idea that when you develop a game you get really good at it without realizing it. I can take out Gomi's final boss in one attempt with something like a 85% chance of not dying, but that's probably not be the case for everyone else. Same thing with the final boss in Hard Mode; I can do it in about an hour or so, but according to the leaderboards no one's ever been able to finish it at all.

Modern Warfare 2. I never knew how the enemy soldier could absorb 5 bullets, not get hurt, and kill me while (seemingly) looking the other way. With the very easy guns, you know when you killed someone, and you can hear it. But stupid infamous CoD lag makes sure you get as little from that 60$ as you can.

Rant aside, for iPhone, whenever I get frustrated, I usually make incomprehensible stutters and grunts, followed by asking "doodle" in DoodleJump why he could possibly be so stupid to miss that platform. Never have gotten an answer out of the little guy.
