The Get Lucky screen has more chutzpah than most fangames could dream of.

Moments of fun gameplay, bogged down by tired gimmicks and often-annoying level design.

For a quick review: I'm a fan of the moving platforms -- I think they are fresh, and generally used to create satisfying movements. Sadly, I find toggle gimmicks boring and worn-out and so did not enjoy their usage. Some screens have really enjoyable pathing and jumps -- but more often than not I find that they include weirdly precise / unintuitive sequences, or are bookended by screens which are frustrating. Overall the experience is dampened.

People have pointed out Section 8, the homing apple screen, as being awkward and unejoyable. I agree, however, a screen I find more representative of the game's quality is Section 15. At the beginning you have to hit a switch while moving up, full double jump, and then hit the switch moving down -- it's uninteresting, precise and annoying. The rest of the room after this is trivial compared to the rooms that have come before it -- probably as a concession to how the player will feel after beating the first part. The rest of the room is also *fun*, but it was hard to enjoy after the opening section.

All in all, I felt the same way about Gokoku's last game. Looks great, but the gameplay isn't there for me.

Fun. Seem to have found it harder than others though -- not good w/stutter movements.

Great style; fun and chill needle (except from that jump where you have to regrab water from both sides and it has a cherry in the middle -- ew). I also love vine jank, so the few saves where that was present were a treat.

I never rated this -- which obviously means I am going to get a lump of coal this year, given how ungrateful I am!

This game has a great mix of fun-absurd, melancholic-disorienting and hypnagogic-skeleton. The feline frenzy was very funny, and the second screen made me feel something (I don't know what though...). As Canus points out, it feels like it was deliberately made for me, which in a way, is the greatest gift one can recieve.

Thanks for this x
