But of course, as with any difficult/terribly designed game, there will come those who claim it's "really easy" and that anyone who doesn't care to beat it "just sucks" and "isn't a real gamer". So I'm going to make things interesting (and hopefully close a few loud mouths) by issuing a challenge; namely, the first person to complete this game legitimately and show me proof that they have done so will be paid $100 USD.
More specifically, the rules are:
- The game must be played on an actual Famicom system with no third-party modifications made.
- The cartridge of Hoshi wo Miru Hito used must be an original, unmodified copy of the game as it was released in 1987.
- The game must be completed without using any kind of cheat device.
Proof should be provided in the form of a video showing a start-to-finish playthrough and at least a photo or two of your recording setup. Commentary on all of the important events going on in-game is a plus!
