Spare a thought for the Little Guy

Spare a Thought for the Litte Guy is a retro-styled platformer based on a silly premise: a freshly unemployed man accepting a new job, recovering souls from the circles of Hell! Only the main character is not monochromatic, and all sprites are superbly animated, with a lot of hilarious possible deaths for the player. Since it emulates the control scheme typical of several ZX Spectrum games, it may be annoying to some. This game was in the retro-remakes 2008 competition.

I WANNA BE THE GUY v1.0.0 (slow-mo version)

A hard as Hell platform.
I Wanna Be The Guy: The Movie: The Game is a sardonic loveletter to the halcyon days of early American videogaming, packaged as a nail-rippingly difficult platform adventure. Players fill the role of The Kid, a youthful, vaguely Megaman-esque protagonist on a quest to become The Guy. This inscrutable plot, however, is just a vehicle for a wide variety of inventive, well-designed and frustrating jump-and-shoot challenges that pay homage to many of the games you loved as a child. The ever-fragile Kid explodes in a shower of red pixels at the slightest brush from the game’s many obstacles, from traditional spikes and bottomless pits to more unconventional killers, such as plantlife and puzzle pieces.
Do YOU have what it takes to be The Guy?
