It appears to be an ARG, but it only goes two layers deep from as far as I can tell. If you wait long enough on the iceberg you are sent to a room with an invisible maze and a sign, and the sign tells you to inspect the difficulty select. Nothing else beyond that, though, as far as I and many others can tell.

EDIT: Nevermind it went a bit deeper than that.
EDIT2: Nevermind again it just kinda sucks

A great hard game. The controls and physics are a distinct take on the gamefeel of fangames, and the gorgeous original visual style complements that well. There are many ways to play the game, which means that how much of the game you play is more or less how much of the game you want to do. Even then, there is still a proper difficulty curve and sense of progress from getting new coins. Replay value is very high with this one, which is a pretty nice plus.

As for the level design, it is very unique, in that some levels are designed with the expectation of getting every coin in a single go, and others suggest to complete the level across several replays, grabbing a few coins at a time to get them out of the way before others. This aspect is handled pretty naturally across all parts of the game. As for what the levels play like, I'll say: It starts pretty hard pretty quick, and only gets harder. Every level has a distinct feel or concept to it, but usually there is a good amount of planning ahead or trial-and-error to work out the best way to get through it. The later levels are increasingly out-there in terms of concept, and also end up being the hardest, sometimes to a degree where you can get lost not knowing what to do. Despite that, though, having 100%'d the game now, I will say that they were all very fun and tight levels in retrospect.

Ultimately, the biggest issue I have with the game is the learning curve, but by nature, it becomes less of a problem the better you get at the game. The new control set is just distinct enough to make it feel like you're learning a new game, but it overlaps with figuring out routes through level layouts which are nontrivial from the onset. Beyond the set of signs that teach you the base controls at the beginning, you're left on your own to figure out which abilities you can use, as well as how you should use them, to complete certain challenges. In some cases, this is pulled off well, like the brilliant levels of the early 30s, which have a well-conveyed path as well as a route through it which flows well. However, like I said before, the last few levels of the game are much harder to parse, and it can easily feel like there's something key you're missing, like you're not sure whether your skill level isn't up to par or if you're doing the wrong thing entirely.

Despite that, though, it's still up to you to choose what you want to do, so if the harder stuff isn't your cup of tea, you shouldn't feel bad about skipping a few coins, or even a few levels entirely. Playing through the game your own way will be enough to build up the necessary skills to actually beat it, even if it takes a while. That's how I felt about the game, at least. And, when you've figured everything out and you have the skill to boot, the game feels wonderful. I'd definitely recommend this, perhaps not as a fangame, but as a game for people who want something new.

Even though this game was made using a sudoku ideology, it's honestly not half bad. When I went in expecting it to be garbage, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed everything. The level design, although certainly basic and surface levels of annoying, was still fun to play through. The bosses and avoidance segments, although definitely on the prolonged side, had nice attacks and reasonable difficulty. I think this game is ultimately pretty nice for a sudoku-esque game, and it's short enough to not tire you out before you beat it.

This game is a decently-made needle gimmick game centered around technical aspects of fangame movement and interesting maneuvers. The game is also about overcoming tedium and repetition, which you might or might not be able to overlook. I'd recommend everyone to give it a try, but you definitely have to have a specific taste to make it through the later parts of the game. It starts easy enough but gets noticeably harder as you progress. The game also has secrets, which is where that 80 difficulty rating is coming from.

As the developer, I recommend this game for anyone who wants to try an unconventional style of fangame, or anyone who is perfectly on board with getting stuck on weird seemingly impossible levels a lot.
