Complete 10 Challenges: there are 53 games and only 20 Challenges in total and you cannot use Rewind feature on any. The Challenges transport you to a specific area with specific requirements/disabilities. I will update this guide as I progress and state the easier ones. Here's what I've done so far:

#1 Golden Axe: Duel Purpose- (hard, took me 39 attempts) you start on level 8 fighting 2 skeletons at once. They have a total of 6 health pieces, each piece taking 2-4 hits to knock out. You have 1 health piece, you can die in 1 good combo or hit and Max I've survived is 2-3 hits, so you have to almost do this flawlessly. A dash hit seems to be the weakest hit and a throw may be the strongest. Keep them separated, I tried to keep one combos or thrown on to the ground 50% of the time so I only had to deal with the other while his buddy is recovering. Even one or 2 hits while moving is good, just keep evading.

#2 Golden Axe II: What is Best?- (hard, took me 12 attempts) you start fighting the 2nd boss of the game and his 2 super fast skeletons. You have 4 health pieces and the strongest attack I've found is throwing an enemy into another one, but I was only able to do this once, I had 2 health pieces left when I beat this. The boss has massive range on his attacks but he's super slow. I found that if you start just hammering on his skeleton buddies in the bottom left corner of the screen, sometime he just ignores y'all and let's you destroy each other. As soon as the match starts you'll want to hit the guy to your left. When things get tight jump and spam your air based attack it's fast and knocks enemies down which buys you time. When it's just the boss left you can fight him best by circling to the one side of the screen until he is centerish of the screen. Then come up from the bottom to meet him and do a quick combo till he falls down. Rinse and repeated about 6ish times.

#3 Golden Axe III: Bullheaded- (medium to easy, I'll be able to better rate this one once I've done more. Took me 2 attempts) you have to beat both bosses without using a continue, BUT you have a ton of magic and 2 full health lives! These guys are fast but you've got a lot more wiggle room than the other 2 Golden Axe challenges in terms or errors you can make. I spammed my magic attacks, slashed em each with 3 or 4 combos then on your second like you only get 1 magic attack.

#4 Beyond Oasis: Giant Enemy Crab- (medium-easy, took me 3 attempts) Your best tool for winning this is mashing that hit button. It says just to use the Dagger, but if you are close to him you will kick him to and that does NOT negate the challenge requirements. If you position yourself just right you can hit his claw and his face constantly, preventing him from thoughing you most of the time. You'll also hit his bubbles with the same strategy. Remember to go under him also and stab his back constantly but don't let him fall directly on you.

#5 Comix Zone: Epic Comback- (easy, did it first attempt) just pressed the B button for a super power I guess, then walked up to everyone and constantly punched them. You'll get hit some but I had nearly half a health bar at the end. Remember to drop down when they open up the route after the fighting.

#6 Crack Down: (I wonder if this is the first of the Crackdown game series that was on the Xbox 360?) Get your Skates on- (medium, took me 7 attempts) Alright so here's the your setbacks at the start: you have 70 seconds, 34 bullets (you can pick up a little more along the way, 1 bomb, and 7 lives to my understanding to do the objective. Which is to hurry through and land on the 3 X's then go through the tiny arrow door by the last X. You can shoot sideways and punch when close. I'd zoom through killing only the enemies directly in front of you and use your bomb when you are halfway across the bridge near the last X.

#7 Flicky: Tricky Flicky- (medium, took me 10 attempts) you get 2 lives and have to rescue about 10 yellow chicks and bring them back to the exit. You need to avoid the green frog and the 2 brown birds. You don't have to collect all 2 chicks at once. Anytime a enemies touches a chick of yours you lose all of those chicks. I went for the menium level ones and the lower ones first and saved the to easy ones up top for last. You have 2 minutes.

#8 Shining Force: Stay with me?- (hard, took me 1 attempt) this one is hard because of your low stats at the start and a lot to learn if you, like me, have never played this before. So your goal is to get to the city where the knights in the top right corner are guarding. You can win instantly an alternate way by sending your Hero (Delphi) there once you've distracted the knights with your other warriors. Or you can win by killing all enemies on the map having lost only 1 member or less.
This should be your attack pattern: First go for the 2 bats across the bridge to the right. Hans (because he's ranged) Mae, and Luke are good at aerial enemies it seems. Blaze works good with it too (Tao has Blaze). Secondly, take out the warrior dudes right above you. Thirdly, stay in the cover of the trees and mountains (because damage you take is reduced by 30% in those areas) and slowly lure out the bats while staying to the left and advancing upward. Fourthly, slowly inch right while still in the trees and form a sort of wall to protect your weaker team members. Keep weak guys like Lowe and Tao back. Try to lure the knights out one at a time (easier said than done). Remember to constantly heal your teammates via Heal Spell (Lowe) until he runs out of that, and via Medical Herbs, you have a bunch of those. If you don't think you'll succeed the use Delphi's Regress magic, that resets the battle and starts you at the beggining BUT you keep all Gold and XP and Levels that you earned! I did this once and it helped a bunch! It also sends you back to the town. Once in the town you can spend your gold to buy items. I would suggest buying 2 Healing Seeds (they restore 30 health, basically full health at your low levels and cost 200 gold apiece). I accidently dropped one in battle, intending to give it to a teammate. Don't make this mistake as dropping makes it dissapear. I was aiming to sneak in with the Hero while the knights were distracted but I just killed them all and won that way. Angel Wings can be bought from the shop too and they work just like Regress. This challenge isn't the hardest but DEFINITELY the most time consuming one.

#9 Virtua Fighter 2: Concentrate- (easy, took me 2 attempts) You start the 1st round with just a little health and the following rounds with full health. Kage-Maru has always been my main fighter in this series so here's what I did. Stand mid distance away and do punch, punch, punch, back and the kick button. If done correctly that last move will be a backwards kick flip which allows you to keep your distance from your opponent and interrupt her moves all at the same time.

#10 Streets of Rage 3: Why won't they just stand still?- (medium, took 3 attempts) there's a full health turkey available and you have a 2nd life. Best to hit them after they do their floor spark attack.

#11 Space Harrier II: __________ (medium, took 4 attempts?)
