Video Game: I Wanna Be The Fangame aka: I Wanna Be The Fan Game
I Wanna Be The Fangame is a spinoff of I Wanna Be the Guy made by Tijitdamijit and Matt. The final version was released March 9, 2010, but it is still under development. It has been submitted to Moddb and can be downloaded here.
The Stickykeys Chase: one of the three compulsary FSLs in the game, has you chasing Stickykeys/running from the lethal left wall. This is extremely hard, due to movement being limited to about 1/6th of the screen length, and you only run as fast as the screen. If you fall even slightly behind, you die.
Mecha Dragon: You get chased by a robot dragon in two directions. It is indeed in the final game, hidden in a secret.
Mecha Dragon AGAIN! He's in two different secrets, this being the second one. It is absolutely FILLED with Spikes Of Doom. Thankfully, this time he only goes in one direction. But then YOU have to go back through all those spikes...
Eversion: You can Evert in the Mario segment, causing you to have to run away from a wall of decay and avoid Hands of Doom.
Trial 5: The scrolling level makes the first one look like a pleasant walk through the park on Sunday. The final one of the hidden Trials shrinks the screen to a tenth of the size, autoscrolls, is dark, gives no inclination of the upcoming obstacles, goes slow enough to severely hinder two of the jumps, reverses direction twice, and on the second reverse, it randomly places a huge, indistructable enemy in your way. And the place is CRAWLING with Spikes Of Doom.
Gainax Ending/Papa Wolf: You get murdered unavoidedly by the final boss's father at the end of the game. However, there is a tantilising Demo Wall at the final room, indicating this won't be the true end.
Correct. This was only true in the beta. In the final version of the game, this doesn't happen.
Goomba Springboard: Literally. Goombas are the only way to reach otherwise unreachable platforms at some points (but it becomes a huge liability later on).
Heroic BSOD: Likely to happen to anyone who plays this.
100% Completion: 11 Secret Items. All hidden in true 8-bit style, and all there to PISS YOU OFF.
Let's Play: Several. OverTheGun's one is arguably one of the funnier ones.Flairina's, though without sound, goes through the game fairly quickly and shows off most of the traps. Their channel also has links to some of the newer secrets and how to beat them.
MegaUltraJMan also has a notablerage-inducing one, similar in vein to his I Wanna Be the GuyLet's Play (though by the end of this one it's quite obvious he at least preferred IWBTG over this game, which he bashes as being "poorly designed" and chews out Tijit several times). Also notable for leading to him creating I Wanna See You Suffer as a result.
This was just one among the dozens of IWBTG fangames that Rawrzaur LPed back in his days as ZeroMegamanX.
Point of No Return: Somewhat. God help you if you're fairly new to the game and accidentally stumble upon a bonus room or the trials. There's (usually) no going back until you beat it if you save there.
Poison Mushroom: One of the most hilarious examples, in the Mario section. Getting it causes the kid to grow so huge he explodes.
