Focused on the traps, this is a easy-ish fangame overall, but its bosses can be quite tough with their RNG attacks. Particularly the last one, which also happens to be the best boss in the game and the only reason why this game doesn't get a lower rating. The platforming isn't bad, but it just doesn't have anything really appealing. The only good thing in this game is the last boss, which can get quite intense with its attacks. That being said, the boss is just decent, nothing really worth it. Wouldn't recommend.

Salt is a fairly old and simplistic adventure game, of sorts. You'll travel through very basic and somewhat mundane screens before reaching a boss, usually of which consists of a single RNG-based attack until you kill it, collect the stage item and move on to the next stage. There are some gimmicks thrown in to stages here and there which spice up the platforming, such as gravity changing or waiting for blocks to become solid on a cycle, although they never go anywhere very interesting.

The bosses though despite being simple are fairly fun to play, and some of them such as the single-block boss felt enjoyable to pull off. There's quite a hefty number of them too. Whilst none of them are overly memorable, they keep the game flowing at a nice pace. There's also a secret final avoidance for those who find all the normal secrets which has a variety of simple but fun-to-read RNG attacks. Nothing too challenging, although the difficulty here comes from it being just over 5 and a half minutes long which gives plenty of time to choke it all away at the end.

On the topic of secrets, each stage features a basic secret which is needed to access the aforementioned secret boss, as well as what I like to call an omega-Yoyo-tier-secret, often involving some galaxy brain method of accessing such as shooting a particular block to silently open up a path on a previous screen. I wouldn't recommend trying to find these blind unless searching for non-indicative triggers and backtracking with optimism sounds like your cup of tea, but they do lead to some more bosses so hey if that sounds like fun then go seek out the legendary Fatalbrain's videos so he can guide the way.

Fairly fun adventure game. The strength comes from the simplistic but kinda fun boss fights and not so much platforming. I'm not sure I'd recommend it over his newer title Sugar, which feels like a more modern and interestingly designed version of this in terms of the game flow and format.

Pretty good platforming, good bosses. Extra boss isn't as long as Meteor Stream or Rainbow Miku, but still, 6 minutes is still kind of long.

Ratings based on everything before the extra boss. Fairly easy game with occasional uncreative traps thrown in. The platforming and bosses aren't anything special but you might enjoy it if you're just looking for a relaxed, adventure style fangame. Probably not going to bother with the extra boss, because I'm terrible at avoidance, and it's nearly 6 minutes long.
