2015 me thought it was a good idea to upload a non-fangame to the wiki because fangame players might like it.
2018 me wishes 2015 me didn't.
2021 me REALLY wishes 2015 me didn't.
2022 me wants to clarify I'm not ashamed of making this game, I'm ashamed of uploading it here before getting into the fangame scene.
If you're someone with archive access and decide to play this anyway, please keep in mind it's only vaguely inspired by fangames, and barely is one itself even if you stretch as hard as you can. Read on for the original description of this game if you insist on playing it.

A fangame-except-not-really created by me and a couple of friends around 2 years ago as of this review/comment. Despite featuring drastically different physics to normal fangames, I submitted it to the wiki thinking that the fangame community would enjoy it. As you can see below, some do and some don't. I'm not sure what I expected.

The version uploaded to the wiki features 5 worlds and 5 bosses, with harder versions available to be unlocked. If you've come here looking for the eleventh star in a world, don't take damage against the regular version of the world's boss.

One day I plan to remake this game as an actual fangame with an actual fangame engine, so look forward to that possibly? Who knows.

One of the best fangames (?) I've seen so far. While I still see some IWBTG on the later platforming, most of this game reminds me of...Super Meat Boy? Yeah. Whatever.
So, you have a character that moves in a way that doesn't resemble Super Meat Boy in the slightest, and you have to get through 5 worlds (Because it's still at beta) with 20 stages each, and if you get through a stage within a certain limit of time, you'll unlock a harder version of this stage on the Dark World...OK. Stop. This game is on the wrong wiki. Send it to the Super Meat Boy Fangames wiki, please?! Alright, I'll stop the jokes now.
All the worlds are incredibly well-made, and although the difficulty curve isn't the best I've seen (Stage 20 on World 2 is actually harder than any Stage on World 3 or World 4), it's still solid for the most part. The gimmicks are awesome, the way the stages are built is awesome, the bosses are awesome, everything in this game is simply too awesome. The only reasons why it doesn't get a 10 are the not-so-balanced difficulty curve and, well, Beta. Would recommend to anyone.

Very good fangame, even though not similar to the others.

I don't think of this as a fangame. I would give it the same score even if I did see it as a fangame, however. It's not bad, but I wouldn't recommend it to people.
