(Note: Fourth path played on version 4.2.1, first 3 paths were played on an older version)

I'm still not sure how to feel about this game. This is by no means anywhere close to being a good game and yet, I still enjoyed (most of) my time playing it and I was excited to see more as I played through. This is an old fangame made in the Tijit engine that attempts to be both goofy and surreal. I'd say it succeeds, but probably not in the way it intended to. The game has your typical adventure trap platforming you'd expect but along the way you'll encounter zany characters and crazy gimmicks (some of which I still don't 100% understand). The gimmicks range from alright to jank as hell, about a third of them are some wacky form of visual challenge, some are difficult to understand as nothing is ever directly explained to you (an example that comes to mind is the gravity flipping ceiling that unflips you after a little bit). In addition to cryptic gimmicks, sometimes the path forward itself is cryptic (Ex: entering the castle area). Some areas are also incredibly precise out of nowhere while most are pretty average.

The boss fights are all something to behold. All of them have an idea to them, but none of them are executed well and they all pretty much require autofire. Alex Kidd would be a fine fight if it weren't for the fact that his projectiles are lightning speed, forcing you to basically practice a pattern while getting lucky with the demon guy he spawns until you reach phase 2. Johnny is a clusterfuck that I still don't understand, he forces you to stand in certain places to dodge, throws an attack at you when you're on the bottom platform at a certain point with no indication that that's why he is doing it, a weirdass one slash attack I don't understand the hitbox of, and an insane RNG phase 2. Boobis Tuber is close to being a competent fight, but the brutal RNG of the attacks makes it just unreasonable enough to not use autofire, his second phase is silly, but far from the worst thing in the game. Nebuer is an interesting concept, but executed terribly. It has 9999 HP and you have to get him in his weak state to do enough damage to defeat him (it's enough to one-cycle him btw). I'll leave his secret for you to discover but rest assured it's silly and the intro to his fight gives a hint.

This is a very special and unique game, we will probably never see another one like it. If you're a fan of wacky sudoku-esque games, are skilled, and are willing to put up with some BS, then I would recommend this. Otherwise, proceed with caution. Many are not ready to be the Sublime.

An incredibly creative and interesting, but horribly hard sudoku-ish game (for the content I've seen, I can't rate this below 75 in terms of difficulty). A remake of this game with acceptable difficulty (and without the awful tijit engine's low possible window size) could be very fun though.
