Jump, slide, jump, jump, slide-jump, glide, shield, crap you missed the kick. Jump, slide, whoops you mistimed your jump. Jump, dead OK now you're just getting sloppy. Jump, slide, jump, jump, slide-jump, glide, shield, kick, jump, jump, high jump FUUUUUU you aced the level but you missed the bullseye finale. Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien's rhythmic obstacle courses accept nothing less than perfection--yet despite the ludicrous demands it made on our twitch reflexes, we happily took its punishments till the very end. It's a special kind of masochism, where you thoroughly enjoy the time spent playing each level, yet you thank the Heavens after a perfect run that you'll never have to do it again. Are we gluttons for punishment? No--it's just that fun.
Runner-up - Volgarr the Viking If you can't hang with momentum-locked double jumps or losing your precious upgrades (and probably your life) from a single hit, just give up now.
