Hello everyone. I just beat Mike Tyson in Punch Out and I am looking for the next NES challenge. Here’s a few I thought of, let me know if you suggest anything else. 
 

Beat Contra w/o Konami code (no cheats)

Beat Ninja Gaiden (no cheats)

Beat Ghouls and Ghosts (twice w/ no cheats)

Beat SMB3 (no cheats)

Beat Battletoads (no cheats)

Beat SMB1 (no warps and no cheats)

several years ago a twitch stream beat every nes game on stream.  here is a partial list of his 10/10 difficulty ratings along with how long it took him to beat it.  he definitely didn't use any cheats, i'm pretty sure he didn't use any guides, and i am almost positive he didn't use save states for practice.  i know i don't have the patience to grind 37 hours to learn a 4 level game.   

ikari warriors without cheats  - 37 hours

cobra triangle - 12 hours

athena - 17 hours

bump n jump: 19 hours

high speed: 28 hours

miracle piano: 91 hours

championship pool: 38 hours

star force: 9 hours

The only two of these I can beat are Cobra Triangle and Bump n Jump. Cobra Triangle is the easier of the two.

Pick a game you really like and go for a No-Death Run!

Oh, and NES doesn't have Ghouls and Ghosts; the NES game is called Ghosts 'N Goblins.  Just saying... 😛

I wouldn’t say beating SMB3 with no cheats is a challenge as much as it is a time investment

Add no warps to this. There's a large contingent here that seems to consider that an insurmountable test of endurance 🤪

I did that once during the weekly contests and it took me over 5 hours. Playing any game for 5 hours straight is a test of endurance for me.

Does this include no continues?

If so, much respect. I never keep track when I play GNG, but I use a shit ton of continues, haha. 

I cannot beat Battletoads or NG, either, so well done.
