I wanna be the 128
The boss is also impressively fun and challenging. It's a mix of player targeting and reacting to rng, and it all feels very reasonable. It's a longer boss divided into several phases. Each phase differentiates itself from the last, and even once you've reached the last phase, the rest doesn't become boring.
The production here is nothing that's going to blow your pants off, but the visuals and music in the platforming and boss are all pretty pleasing, with a nice variety.
I can't recommend this game enough. I'm not a huge fan of trap games, but this one drew me in and didn't let go, which I think says a lot.
Unfortunately, every so often there's a jump or a moving apple that requires too much precision - for example, the apple in stage 7's water segment, or the squished diagonal in stage eight. These segments crash the flow of the game to a halt. They really feel like they weren't tested sufficiently. The game also overuses apple bobbing mechanics. To its credit, it makes interesting use of the mechanic, but it becomes pretty tiring the second and third time around. Save point placement is also pretty bad, with lots of saves stuck in the air or in little cubbies off the main path (thankfully this doesn't matter as much for this style of game). However, these are mostly minor blemishes. I'm only detailing them here in the hopes that the creator can take notice and make his next game even better.
There's also a final boss. It's easy but has WAY TOO MUCH HP. Fangames gotta fangame, I guess.
Overall an excellent game. I look forward to more from 128-Up.
Most segments are well-done. Save placement is kind of poor throughout, causing you to have to run upwards of a full second between each attempt. There are platforms that are not synced properly, resulting in downtime between jumps where there shouldn't be. It's fairly difficult needle, but not as hard as a Rukito game.
Play this if you can stomach some poor segments in order to play the good ones. Play this if you don't mind an annoying-to-reach start portal. Play this if you don't mind the creator trying to emulate Rukito.
I will update if I somehow get the desire to play the remainder of the game.
