Certain games in the NES’ library found their way into numerous homes over the years, with some being more popular than others. In my circle of friends, The Adventures of Bayou Billy was definitely one of those games, but I’m not sure how that came to be!

The Adventures of Bayou Billy is a technically sound game with nice graphics and a fantastic soundtrack, but it’s also one of the hardest games you’ll find on the platform. We’ve all heard of games that are “NES hard,” but The Adventures of Bayou Billy puts those other tough games to shame.

It’s legitimately difficult to survive just the first level in The Adventures of Bayou Billy, as enemy attacks and attack patterns are absolutely brutal. Should you scrape by, you’ll be treated to fresh gameplay mechanics and more, but once you get to the next beat’em-up segment, you’ll likely be seeing the Game Over screen once again.

An incredibly unfair game, yet somehow still fun. Perhaps one day I’ll beat it, but that day is definitely not today!
