✓1st fangame: I wanna be The Guy: The Movie: The Game
✓2nd fangame: I Wanna Be The Boshy
✓3rd fangame: I Wanna Sunspike (begun this year)

I started playing fangames in 2018 excluding the first two and have ventured more deeply into them. I have begun somewhat late but it is never TOO late, so here I am. Interested in escalating the ladder of difficulty and skill with my loyal keyboard, which has endured the power of my strong key smashing, especially the Shift key. Open for beginner recommendations and interacting with all of you great people!

Blessings, and thanks for reading!

P.S. The "I Wanna Be The Guy" messages/claims of it "not being a fangame" will be ignored.

For: I wanna go across the Rainbow
Rating based on 100% mode. Difficulty rating based on No Secrets mode.

Color me (oh boy) impressed! This is a terrific experience for both veterans and players that have gotten used to the common engine that rules 98% of fangames and want a spike in challenge:

✓Red: Straight needle platforming. Creative and fun.
✓Orange: Choose your difficulty! Veterans will find themselves taking the shorter, yet harder routes! I tried them all and had a lot of fun succeeding.
✓Yellow: Kappa. Traps all over. Naturally, my least favorite segment, but I appreciated two things: a) They were not non-stop, and b) some triggers were odd. Not all of them kill you. It's just to scare you. Either it was intentional or bad platforming, but it seemed odd.
✓Green: Difficulty spiked up (oh my). There are no alternate routes here: this section is the filter for beginners. Fun as well and requires precise calculations.
✓Blue: Apple platforming. Average at best and sometimes annoying, but never frustrating.
✓Indigo: Japanese Kappa ("ding!") blocks. Was this the fangame that started them? Even if not, the idea is funny and serves as a different kind of trap segment that is not too bothersome.
✓Violet: Moving spikes. Calculate your timing of landing on ledges and read the spikes well. Dynamic and, again, fun.

As mentioned by the consensus, the game reaches its peak in experience if you get all secrets, because instead of getting a troll boss fight and a "Thank You For Playing" screen, you get the final area: a beautiful and iconic moment among the world of fangames. It's unforgettable. If the whole game had been of the quality of the final area, this would be among my favorites, but I still consider it great overall. The final boss is memorable, not as epic as I would've wished, but a nod to FFX is never something "overused". The attack of the hearts might frustrate some, but after 3 deaths to it, I caught the trick. An easy fight, but long enough.

Very recommended. This has a high replay value and, unlike several fangames, this showed commitment in its design. Instead of painting the entire screen of one color, and thus killing your eyes, the color scheme, shadow and rendering effects are gorgeous, and I love looking at basically any area.

P.S. I cannot reiterate how great the final section is after collecting all secrets. If you have played "I Wanna Get Cultured", you might have had that section spoiled, but its effect still remains once you play the original game. Thumb up.

For: I wanna see the Moon
I could write a book about this fangame, but I'll try to keep it as short as possible.

First, I played the "Normal" mode, which actually would qualify better as "Hard". The experience was extremely tedious. There are just less saves, sometimes with entire screens that do not have a single save spot. The screens are not really challenging per se, but it is heavily trap-based, and so, this consumes a lot of your time being a trial-and-error game. This is not difficulty; it is poor, frustrating design. Kayin understood what a "Hard" mode was supposed to be.

Second, the visual design is absolutely atrocious 80% of the times and shines the rest of the times, especially the "Space", "Black Valley" and "See the Moon" areas. It is extremely generic in its exterior designs, and very monochromatic. Whenever you enter the cherry forest or the blue ice area which names I won't bother to recall (interesting that those are the areas whose names I can't recall) will make your eyeballs explode out of pain: just paint everything green and blue in tones that hurt, use your imagination and voilá! You've got an "ice" or "forest" area. The forest area particularly looks like green baby's poo. But the true eye killer is an advanced area where you shoot anthropomorphic suns (or whatever they are), turning the ENTIRE screen of one strong, eye-piercing color, making the spikes of that color disappear, so goodbye eyes. Do not play this at night!!!

Third. Almost all of the bosses, except for the last one, are cherries (err, Delicious Fruits). Uneventful, unsurprising, and very boring, despite a couple of them using gimmicks that tried to compensate the "fights" you were supposed to believe you were facing.

Fourth, the game is extremely cryptic. Particularly infamous instances for me where figuring out the "Blood" room (which I discovered by pure accident), the hidden area in the Cherry Forest area where you're supposed to walk to the left (I confused that tile with bad design, and well, judging by the looks of the area, I can excuse myself) and getting the "Unown Pokemon" items in a very specific order: otherwise you would have to try again. ABSOLUTELY. FUN...

Fifth, if you don't make the game in a very specific order, it will become a giant maze where you will be going in circles and going through areas again and again just to find that corner or area that you couldn't visit before and you can now, but these new areas are not self explanatory except for the one requiring a key. The hints given with the green and red photographs helped very little (especially because the former is ridiculously hidden). Since I am a man of no guide in fangames, you can imagine myself:

a) Going in circles
b) Repeating tedious platforming areas again and again
c) With few save spots

This amounted for 5.95 hours of gameplay with 1298 deaths. But again, I am not calling this difficult. It was my fault that I chose the incorrect "difficulty" setting, which aggravated my experience, so my difficulty rating is me imagining more save spots where they were convenient, but I cannot change my game rating.

Any saving grace? Yes. The game has variety, I won't deny it, especially the tower segments and the aforementioned areas that showed commitment in the design. Also, the entire horrible experience is compensated by a surprisingly good original final boss that actually feels like a fight with interesting attacks, one which you will identify in the Kamilia sequels. I find myself playing against this booss from time to time because it is worth it, and the game, instead of leaving you in the "clear" screen, leaves you at the last save before the boss, so there's that.

Yeah, it is a classic and an early game (2013 if I'm not mistaken), but this doesn't mean that I am biased against classicsm or that there was an excuse to create awful designs. This reminded me of I Wanna Be The Four Elements and that is NOT a good thing. Look at the wonders Solgryn did back in 2010. There's no excuse. I am no designer, so I have no idea what is more difficult: to make more than 15 different areas where 10 look awful, or making a single area look great, like Thenader2's neon games.

I respect the people cherishing this classic, and I could see (although with difficulty) why this is considered as one. This is, however, not my type of adventure fangame. NOT RECOMMENDED.

P.S. Now I remembered that there was a "Difficult Start" option at the beginning. I don't know what that does and I don't want to know.

For: I wanna Bread
An Asian bread ventures out into finding valuable lessons about himself, facing his own past, fighting evil and embarking on an adventure. To my surprise, this is actually a needle game with very fun jumps and a nice balance between platforming and bosses sections. More than an excuse like in "I Wanna Make a Sandwich", the bread here symbolizes inner struggle and transforms a seemingly ridiculous excuse of a character into something fun to play as! Who would say!

It is very short and should prove as a decent experience for experienced beginners. Do not miss this one out. I often lost track between when it was being serious and when it wasn't, and believe it or not, I am sustracting points because I saw no satisfactory resolution to the main character in the ending (hey, the premise took itself too seriously so I did too), but it is worth the adventure I say. I just felt empty in the ending. But nice visual design and music choices compensate some big flaws.

Recommended.

For: I wanna be the Showdown
Good concept. Not repetitive enough to be boring and has quite fun traps, although it is not the main theme. It is more gimmick than anything. It really feels like playing an average game in a Gameboy. Platforming is ok, bosses are ok, platforming is its strongest part, I have already forgotten about how the soundtrack sounds, it's just the IDEA itself that works the strongest.

I would recommend it, but not for beginners, unless you are looking for a challenge. I found myself doing unnecessary corners often just to get through screens more quickly and Screen 47 (I think it was that one), where you can shoot the dark blue spikes, I passed "legit", it without shooting any of them just to test myself. Fun times again.

Also, a funny thing happened: While I was playing through screens 41 and 42, I remembered the factory section of I Wanna be the Guy with the Megaman-esque lasers before encountering Bowser & Co., and when I stumble upon Screen 43, the lasers appeared! IWBTG certainly drew its influence and only a couple of fangames have surpassed my rating for it. What an influence it drew back in 2008 until today!

Recommended? Ok, yeah...

For: indigo needle
Almost a 40 in difficulty (I rate in intervals of 5 points), but difficulty is also psychological, and I have to mimick what many have said, summarized well by Notevenamatuer: it is a beautiful, relaxing game. So, paradoxically, this is not, in my opinion, a beginner-friendly game at all: It requires previous needle experience and is a nice recommendation for players that have gathered previous experience and want to be introduced at the capabilities of the Dotkid physics before venturing into the expert of the subject: Thenader2. But the whole environment, music and visual design make the experience extremely enjoyable, making you think it is easier than your final death count.

I wasn't a fan of the avoidance segments at all (the idea is neat but I found it, quite frankly, very ugly and dissonant), but I find a high replay value in here.

I already have the perfect music choice for my next romantic dinner. So please, God, grant me my significant other!
