I made it so fast that quality of it may not be good. If I can, I would update some wrong place. Though it's not so good, but I think it's my best fangame I have made till now.

A really good troll game. All of the traps are creative and the game is fairly long. The music is low grade and generic which is annoying. There is also an avoidance at the end of the game.

Underrated old trap fangame. Some screens and bosses spike a little in difficulty compared to the rest of the game, but it should be mostly newcomer friendly (I was thinking of giving it a 45 until the ending avoidance, which is a mix between barrage and pattern, and requires skill beyond the rest of the game. If you play the game up to it and then quit, you won't be missing much besides a clear screen)

Nice trap game. Lots of creative traps, decent amount of variety that allows the game to not get too repetitive. There's also a quite cool medley-ish stage. Generic visuals, musics are nice, but they restart. Most bosses are nice-ish, but the last one is really not my type of avoidance. Didn't like the music and there are some really unbalanced attacks.
It's a nice trap game overall, although I didn't like the last boss. Would recommend, maybe.

Metaphor is an amazing Adventure game with a focus on Traps and Needle-centric platforming. It's genuinely one of my favorite classic style fangames and was truly enjoyable from start to finish.

The game is really split into two separate styles, and it flips between these two pretty often. The first involves saves that feels exactly like a trap game, and although they're sometimes basic, it's almost always pretty funny. The second style takes a more Needle approach to things, and these usually do not have traps for you to worry about. This becomes the formula for six separate stages, each concluding with a boss. Past these is also a final avoidance which is pretty fun and climactic as well.

There are a lot of interesting things in this game, from special traps where you need to dodge spikes, to slight gimmick usage with springs, and a section that uses screen wrapping. I really thought each stage was pretty unique and offered a good bit of variation throughout the game. The bosses also helped provide a common theme throughout the game, which made it feel like a true journey.

Streamer/NSFW Warning: In the Megaman tileset stage there is a hole you can fall down after a column raises up. This takes you to a screen with naked anime girls in the background showing, be warned.

I would definitely recommend playing Metaphor, it's a really solid game that a lot of people might not have played before, so give it a try!
