Gargoyle's Quest
Game and Watch Gallery 2

It would be impossible for me to get 1000 points on G&WG2 without the save states. Even with them I had a difficult time with some of the games such as modern Parachute.

Edgey, Gumshoe, Godot, Sissel, Larry, then Mia, Franziska, Maggie, Kay and Lynne.

I'm throwing my money at the screen but nothing happens!

Gargoyles Quest is the only one I can think of - because I was fed up of having to walk to the bosses again and again. Saved before every boss/level to save plenty of time. :3

Not on the 3DS, but Sonic 1 on the PSP collection pretty much required it twice in order for me to get past Zone 2 Act 3.

Doesn't talk about games.

The one which stands out the most for me was GG Shinobi. On the last level, I basically did a restore point for every new platform I stepped on, otherwise I probably would have never finished it :(

Gargoyle's Quest would have to be a close second for me

I had the same problem when I grew up on this game.

As for me, SML 1 & 2, only because I had to rush my playthroughs.

I don't think any use of the save states in Zelda 2 could ever be considered abuse - considering it's necessary to make it somewhat playable.

I make Pixel Art on occasion.

I haven't yet. It has meant that certain games are essentially impossible for me to beat (hi Ninja Gaiden) but I generally prefer to play games the way they are meant to be played.
