Farewell is Azure's last game, and a wonderful display of the creative mind the maker has developed across his repertoire of games. With a wide variety of gimmicks, very smartly designed platforming and a wide collection of bosses, this game nails the adventure genre in just about all aspects. (Note: If you're wanting to play for True End, you'll need mandatory secrets. I've included a pastebin at the bottom of this review listing the secrets in the order they appear for your convenience. There's also a plot summary provided by Grisha92 down there, if you're curious!)

The game follows a mostly linear path with a few optional segments here and there, alongside a very dramatic and perhaps convoluted story. Unfortunately this is all in Japanese, so unless you're handy with reading the language you will struggle to make sense of things. Thankfully it's generally not too difficult to figure out your next step, and the stages flow pretty nicely between one another.

There are also 4 endings in the game; that is a bad ending (Ending 4), two good ends (Ending 3 and 2) and a true ending (Ending 1). Your ending will be determined by how many rabbit secrets you killed/collected over the course of the game, where you'll need to find all 12 alongside a couple extra secrets. I'll link a pastebin at the end of this review if you'd like an easy reference for getting the best ending, which does provide some more end-game content that's definitely worth experiencing.

The highlights of the game for me come with some of Azure's more creative platforming alongside often not-too-complex gimmicks. The stage where a spike tracks your x-position and shoots a laser whenever you jump is especially well designed, with a couple really cleverly saves that were a blast to play. I also really liked the knife stage near the end which felt unfortunately short but very enjoyable to play. The bosses are also for the most part fun to play with a few rough edges. Azure makes good use of the stage gimmicks in combination with the appropriate boss, and the final true end boss in particular is a very fun fight which wraps up the adventure nicely.

Difficulty-wise, there definitely feels like there's some hiccups here and there in regards to fairness or balancing. One big offender is the Zangief fight where you fall through the skies. Whilst this is conceptually cool and interesting to play, the time it takes to change your colour in combination with the end of the fight's clown fiesta phase can feel very unrewarding, and at times unfair. The true final boss also has an attack that is far harder than everything else, and whilst fun to play it definitely sticks out a bit.

You're guaranteed to find something in here you have fun with and also probably something that doesn't strike a chord as well, though it's well worth a play for anyone looking for a challenging adventure game, and one of Azure's finest.

As a closer, if anyone would like further clarification on how to get the true ending, I've provided a pastebin listing the 12 bunny locations, alongside the couple other important details! - https://pastebin.com/x6D0DyBx

In addition, Grisha92 did a translation of the story. You can find the plot summary here! - https://pastebin.com/1tFyPuiW

A really long adventure game with many different stages and multiple endings.
The whole game is in japanese which means theres one or two times in the game its hard to know what to do
but with enough poking around you can still find the way.
This game is a solid challenge too, the difficulty is on the higher end but doesnt stop the game from being fun in any sense.

back when it got released the long awaited azure game a lot of people were waiting for and he really didn't disappoint again. having already played his other adventure like games you kinda know what you are getting into when you start this game up. it still has a very different style compared to his earlier games but definitely not in a bad way.
this game has tons of content and is very challenging from start to end.
there are even several endings in the game that require you to do/collect certain things in the game to unlock them.
overall this is just a really solid game that everyone who is ready for its difficulty should play.

Super long and diverse adventure game. Language barrier might hinder you a bit because sometimes don't know where to go but all in all a great work from Azure. Pretty tough all the way but definetly my favorite fangame of 2015.
