One of the first fangames I played. Wait, it isn't a fangame, it's official sequel to IWBTG.
The game is unfinished, it has only one act, and this act has 3 levels in it.
In this game, you play as The Lad, because The Kid already became The Guy. The Lad has a hook, and that's an interesting gimmick. However, I think the hook is the reason this game never got finished.
Almost every fangame that tried to add something new never got finished. And IWBTG: Gaiden is not an exception. And that's sad.
Also, I had a strange glitch and the game did not save when I quit, so I had to complete it in one go. I did manage to do it though.
I honestly would love to see new version, but... it'll never happen.

The official sequel to the original IWBTG. It's short, it has good production value, but I didn't care for the level design. The use of the hook mechanic has been done far better in other fangames, and the platforming is very lackluster. There's some trolls and stuff, but honestly the game is overhyped. If this game were made by anyone else nobody would have given shit.

Fun game that doesn't really count as a fangame, since it's an official sequel to the original IWBTG (Or at least a demo of what the sequel would be). I really enjoyed it for the most part. There's a quite interesting mechanic, the 'Hook', which the game makes a constant use of. The traps were quite generic in their nature, but most of them were still funny, specially due to their placement. Great visuals and musics. There are plenty of enemies you can kill, which gives an use to your gun, and a mini-boss at the end of each act, except for the last one, which has an actual boss. They are all pretty fun to fight against, with some really interesting concepts that go beyond the standard formula of just shooting the boss until he dies.
It's quite sad that this game never went past the demo phase, it would probably be quite cool if it were finished. Would recommend.

The hook was definitely the harder part for me to get a grasp of, but it was still a pretty fun experience.
