Im trying to start a list of the difficulty of the games. this list will only include games that have 3 obtainable medals.
Remember these scores are just a ruff outline you may find some games to be a touch harder or easier.
Note: if u have a turbo controller this can really help with overall time medals and even some games (like tempest)
Asteroids Deluxe: 7-8/10
Crystal Castles: 1-2/10
Lunar Lander:1-2/10
Red Baron:2-3/10
Road Fighter:7-8/10
Shao-lins Road:2-3/10
Space Armada:5-6/10
Space Hawk:2-3/10
Super Cobra:7-8/10
Tempest:1-2/10(with turbo)4-5/10(without)
Yars Revenge:3-4/10

Make Crytsal castles a 1-2/10, there are known exploitable glitches to get both Survivalist and Score Breaker gold easily, and Time Spender does not require any talent at all (and is rather low for that game).

Also, I suggest Red Baron at 2-3/10

I like the idea of having a list to show the games difficulty but at the same time it's hard to pin an actual rating on them because everyone has their strengths and weaknesses in different games.

Your list you have is so so compared to my own experiences. But I would say Asteroids is 4-5 and Shao-lins is 7-8 despite having heard the contrary from many others.

thats why i had a little disclaimer at the top about it being a ruff outline for the games. Id like to know more or less whats easy and whats not and thought other people would too.

Thanks for making this post! I have Shao-lin's Road, Crystal Castles, and Red Baron and I agree with the difficulty y'all had for those. They are all pretty easy except you have to play Shao-lin for 4 hours to get the Gold Time Spender. >:^(

I just downloaded Space Hawk. I have no idea what that game is suppose to be but it's really easy. I'd give it a 1-2.

Astrosmash is quite easy, I'd put it in the 1-2/10 category. As long as you can move an analog stick right and left to dodge stuff you should be able to get the points and survival medals in your first attempt.

Thanks TC, this is a great idea and the input here has helped me make up my mind on a couple purchases (Astrosmash and Crystal Castles)
