Sloppy level design, generic traps and four stages using the same tilesets, three of them being visually the same. And among the other three stages, two just recolored the tilesets. There's a limit for how much of the same can you repeat.
The secrets are a bit better, going one step further than just fake blocks in a random place (Two of them are exactly that, but it's just two of them), but two of them are particularly annoying to find (Never put a secret path at one screen, and the trigger to unlock the path at another screen. Please). Also, they're still flawed gameplay-wise (They can be boring, or the save placement can be unfair, or both at the same time).
The best part of the game (Which isn't saying much) are the bosses. These are actually good, and give some action to the game. Even so, the last boss has way too much HP, mainly since there are two of them. Or, actually, the best part of the game is the ending. No, it's not because the game is so bad that you keep hoping for it to end (Well, it's a reason, but not the only reason). The music for the credits is nice, and there are some nice effects around. It feels like a Miru Wanna avoidance.
Even so, you must go through the platforming before you get to these good parts. And that's...Not a very pleasant task. Wouldn't recommend.

Review and rating are based on 100% clear until "Thank you for playing!" screen in credits.

This game probably is sequel to one older Yoyo game, which is a lot worse than this game and almost doesn't have anything similar to each other. But still, this game is still one of older Yoyo games, thats why style is very similar to I wanna be the Salt, but still it is better.

To clear game normally, you have to beat 5 areas and final boss. To get to credits, you have to plus get 6 secrets and beat final stage and true final boss.

Platforming segment for the game is pretty easy to deal with and have pretty standart design ( except for dark, which is only area with more original tileset). Platforming has some gimmicks, like different gravitys, riding platforms and etc., but only memeorable are both final bosses.

Standart final boss, I actually disliked, however it has nice idea and background music, but I didn't liked, that it is that crazy, and you need to concentrate a lot to get rid of crazy rng. And boss is little bit too long in my opinion. Seperately attacks are interesting, but together they make unenjoyable last boss, like in IWBT Salt.

True final boss was very enjoyable for me. It has nice soundtrack, and wasn't that crazy. Basically to clear it, you need right strategy how many times shoot each of them, which to shoot first and never missed about it. For me this boss was even easier than final boss too.

Secrets are well-hidden and are fun to get. And items have animation too at least. Only I didn't get from what I should guess code to get to k2 screen, where is secret , but otherwise I liked ideas about secrets.

Basically, I would recommend this game only if you play with k2 savage mountain challenge rules, because for normal any% clear this game is not worth of playing, just because of final boss. Would recommend this game for little bit average player too, not for beginner.

Neddle fangame with generic traps. Contain 4 stages. If you wanna complete this game on 100%, you have to find four secrets. Secrets are better than the original game.

A adventure fangame that is pretty "okay".

The tilesets are not really good, it's mostly the same old tilesets you usually see.
The difficulty curve is pretty out of place, as the final boss, compared to the rest of the game is sorta tough and pretty tedious because of its RNG, but it's fine.

On every stage, you can get secret items, which are... decently hidden.

After you get all of them, you get a final stage, which uses the same overused megaman tileset, with a few hard jumps.

True Final Boss was the most enjoyable part of the game, it was fun, and it was decent in terms of difficulty.

Would recommend only because of bosses and because it's on K2 Savage Mountain Challenge.

This game is pretty bad. The level design is sloppy and has an inconsistent difficulty curve. The secrets are cryptic, and since they're required for the final boss, it's a real hassle getting them. The first boss is FAR too hard for the rest of the game. All of the difficulty comes from this yellow dolphin-looking thing alone. The final boss is challenging as well, but not nearly as much as the first one. Only recommended for the K2 challenge.
