Wow, I haven't reviewed this yet? Huh.

I Wanna Sunspike is a relatively short game, consisting of 6 stages (unless you count both blue outline areas as one) and an avoidance boss, with every stage slowly amping up the difficulty. A beginner could definitely start this game, maybe make it to stage 3, but couldn't possibly beat the game without some previous fangame or precision platforming experience. Unless, you know, they're willing to grind for a few 10s of hours.

The visuals of the game start getting good in stage 4, with stage 6 being the best in the game (in my opinion).

Out of all the screens in the game, i only have a real problem with 2 of them, in which i will link here: http://imgur.com/a/dynvy - Those screens are arguably horrible, but for the rest of the platforming in the game, it's full of pretty generic needle jumps, but I find it very fun, to the point of speedrunning it. The difficulty curve is insane, as you will know once you've seen the first screen of the game, and then the last.

The music in this game is pretty good, I like just about every song and they all fit with their respective areas.

The avoidance boss is what really makes this game, being 3 minutes and 32 seconds long, it has a whole lot of production value. The song is absolutely AMAZING, and is probably my all-time favorite vocaloid song. Here's the link to it, btw: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zkHgpKcX5FY - The boss is fairly easy for veteran players and can be cleared within a short timespan of a few hours. This boss took me 16 hours, about half of which was when i was still bad at fangames, the other half being when i was slightly less shit. The final attack is definitely the hardest attack in the boss, and it is really really cool looking. Well, it was cooler before people started making better versions of it, but still.

Anyway, with all that being said, it is one of my favorite fangames, and i would 100% recommend a full playthrough. (Then beat yoyo's any% wr kthx)

I just cleared Sunspike shortly before writing up this review, so I apologize in advance for the typos.

Where to begin?

The Kid starts off in a basic easy needle area. This start to Sunspike does not set the tone for the later game, but eases you into it.
Next area gets slightly harder and has a nice little temple feel to it.
This next area shoves itself into the game, with no transition to back it up. Maybe it was for a feeling of exiting the temple and setting foot outside. Also it gets harder. Who woulda thought?

Now, the next area is where the game actually gets hard for less-skilled or new players. The game goes for a dark, tech feel, which is really quite neat.
After you've cleared that, you enter the REAL game. Where the difficulty REALLY ramps up. You enter the futuristic areas, with neon spikes, changing depending on what stage you're in.

The final boss is IA. This is actually not where most of my hours went into. I spent around 4 hours on the final screen, and only 3 hours on the actual boss. Not to say the boss is easy, it's really quite a challenge and requires a lot of memorizing.

Quality 9/10
Enjoyment 9/10

Good avoidance boss that I will never be able to beat mixed up with generic platforming with high production value. Overrated.
