After 15 years I finally.......

I was having a quick blast on IK+ the other day and without to much difficulty I managed to get a black belt. Now this may not sound like much of an achievement but I remember when I used to play it way back when, I could only manage a green or possibly purple. I don`t know, maybe i`m getting better at games or maybe it`s the more complex nature of todays games making the games of yesteryear no brainers?

Anyway anyone else find that they have no trouble getting high scores/finishing games they used to find difficult?

I'm not braging but I regularly dont play IK+ for years at a time and easily get a black belt but I guess I used to play it in my sleep.

Games are easier with cheats, most 8-bit games aren't as difficult as they used to be

All the more reason to have no mates; you can like what you want.

Did you know that if you keep playing you eventually get the status "MEGAHERO"? Still can't get anywhere on Manic Miner, though.

I have no idea - I've never managed to get that fat. I spotted the text whilst I was taking the game apart for my Flash port.

EDIT - far. I mean far. Typo left in because it's the most amusing thing I've posted in ages.

I don't think it takes so long that you become obese.

EDIT - Bah, you saw the typo and ruined my obvious joke.

I never made it to the black belt even back in the old days (made it to brown I think?), so I don't count on doing that easily now either, but it might happen if I have a good day and some luck.
