No game inspired as much controller-slamming rage as this brutal side-scroller. Memories of the water-set disable-the-bomb level still creep into our nightmares, and thoughts of tangling with the ridiculous bosses still makes us shudder.

This brutal dream crusher was available on the Wii's Virtual Console but was yanked in February. The official reason for the disappearance was "licensing issues," but we'd like to think Konami was just trying to act in the best interests of gamers everywhere by refusing to let this beast torture them any longer.
