You will have to include Cloud Master and Powerstrike on the master system, they made me cry.
I would say Ghouls and Ghosts but I actually got very far in that game, almost completed it. Playing it now-a-days though I don't know how I could have been so good at it, it totally ate me alive the other day!!
Shinobi deserves to be on the list too, especially the master system version.

Empire Strikes Back on the SNES... that game is so bleeping hard. Think I must have seen about 10% of it (I am awful at nearly all games though).

There is a game called Plutobi on PSN. Only one guy has been able to unlock any trophies on it. It's complicated to know what to do anyway but also stupidly hard. The controls don't help either. Probably the least penetrable game on the system. I was meant to review it but got nowhere with it.

Raiden is pretty damn hard to complete. I can get to the third level with the 3 credits I get given from the GOG version and that is it. I used to be very good at shoot-em-ups when I was a pup but not anymore at 38.

Battletoads - it always comes up on these sort of lists for a reason. There's a really good game under there, but level 3 onwards is absolutely masochistic.

Those Super Star Wars games on SNES. Seriously, has anyone managed to complete any of them?

I've finished all three of them. Fantastic games.

I envy you. I couldn't make it past the first stage of any of them!

Ghosts n goblins

I'm determined to see later stages but damn its frustrating. Getting off the first level alone is tricky as anything. I can then get near to the end of level 2 but again thats a frickin nightmare ! Theres some bloke at Arcade Club who finishes it everytime, need to watch him play it next time.

To me Jailbreak is another, rarely see the later levels but for some crazy nostalgic reason i still love both games 25 years later. Still love to have a quick go of them here and there

I rented that out one night and I swear it made me cry. If you died, you literally lost all your power-ups and it was therefore a one life shoot-em-up as it wasn't worth continuing with once you carked it.

Is there much of a difference between Ghosts & Goblins and Ghouls & Ghosts?

Yeah i think they did a great job with the sequel. You can shoot vertically in Ghouls , even though its a similar side scrolling affair you get different weapons, can get turned into a duck or old man which is quite amusing. Lots of guillotines ! Sadly havent got off the first level !

But i'm going to play it much more. A version came out on iOS with a 'cheat' mode to make it slightly easier so i'm determined to see more of the game ! But yeah a nice sequel, the home ports werent bad either
