While it seems primitive in some aspects, I actually had fun with this game, to a degree.

It's not a one-hit death like most fangames. Instead, you have a health bar! And you can restore health by eating certain fruits.

The platforming overall is not terrible, and the health bar makes a lot of the jumps much more tolerable.

Unfortunately, the restarting stock music, the stock sprites, and the blah bosses subtract from the quality of the game. In addition, the fact that the fruit you eat to regain health, and deadly fruit that harms you, are the same sprite (just different sizes.) If improvements were made to each of these aspects, I think this kind of game could be a real gem.

This game is genius in a lot of ways. It's super low production and has a handful of bruh moments but I really enjoyed it. YMMV though

An HP (shown on the window) adventure game very old school that can give a serious challenge in the later stages.

Starts off very simple explaining the gimmick with a little tutorial, before ascending in difficulty. It adds throughout the stages new mechanics or gimmicks while juggling with the amount of HP you get or start with.
Gimmicks can be a one time / stage usage.
Thee are 7 stages in total each with a boss that are pretty easy to understand before the last one, which can be come a serious problem to its shoot mechanism.

There is also a compensation to the HP mechanic, which is each stage has only one save.
Particularly the X-4 stages also have the boss screen counted in, so dying to a boss will also result in a restart of the whole X-4 stage.

The boss of 7-4 really ruined it for me, I have zero idea on what to do and don't plan to come back to this game, huge disappointment.

I can only recommend up to stage 7, as that's where the game really starts to diminish in value.

honestly really really really enjoyed this, i found myself p much laughing throughout at the traps, some of the segments, and even the transition kills and insta deaths from falling off the screen, the insta deaths are unexpected because the hp gives you a sense of security, then you just get owned, and i kinda really like that (if that doesnt sound fun to you probably dont play this game though) also the gameplay was cool too

and i get that there are long segments that might feel bad to die at the end of but like, come on, the game is called i wanna be the long, can you really say long segments are unexpected?!?!?!?!

overall a really charming game, straight up one of my favorites
