Butterfly is a great adventure game boasting a huge variety of challenges and tasks for the player to whittle their way through. Some parts can feel a little dated here and there in terms of visuals, but the gameplay mostly than makes up for those weak points.

The game consists of a starting hub and then a couple more hubs later on, full of different challenges and areas to explore. The various areas in the hubs are quite different from one another and feature a bunch of neat stuff for the player to have fun with. For example, the first hub offers a Zelda-esque dungeon setup whereupon you can find a map, door keys, solve puzzles, find new gimmicks and fight the stage boss all in one comfy package, whilst another portal in the hub offers a challenging batch of trigger needle to test your platforming capabilities. The later hubs also feature many zany features such as target-practice minigames with score requirements, a couple of retro-themed stages with throwbacks to Mario and Megaman and even an intense tower climb as a ballerina panda chases you to the top. There's really quite a fun mix.

Of course with so much variety there will always be a couple of points I enjoyed less. One particularly notorious segment in the first hub caused much frustration with the v-string heavy platforming. I enjoyed the concept and thought it looked interesting visually, but a couple of the saves relied heavily on hoping you have the right jump heights to slip into a little gap, making for a bit of a grindy area. There's also an avoidance later on which I had quite a bit of fun with, but there is a 20 second intro which isn't skippable and this wore my focus down quite a bit in-between attempts. Still, I found the avoidance itself to be fun and challenging with a mix of slight pattern and some occasionally intense RNG.

I was told early on whilst playing this that Butterfly tests your skills in ways that most fangames don't, and after finishing this I can definitely agree. Overcoming the various challenges it presents made for a very satisfying adventure fangame. Some parts can be questionable at times, but if you don't mind some v-string shenanigans then you'll probably have a fun time.
