Lacks production, but overflows with quality somewhere else. The variety is astonishing.

Emperor is a classic adventure game that holds up pretty well despite the lacking production value, full of tricky and often trigger-based platforming and memorable bosses.

The game plops you in a hub as you go and explore each path, beating their respective platforming segments which is centred primarily on traps and triggers. There is the odd slight gimmick now and again but nothing too in-depth, and the strength comes from Klein's ability to make challenging but memorable manoeuvres, often making use of moving cherries to compliment the stages. A couple of segments felt a bit unpleasant such as the moving quad-diamond in the brown stage or some parts in the final callback stage (shoutouts to Magnificent), but for the most part it stays enjoyable for the difficulty it is.

Bosses are pretty diverse, ranging from good ol' Captain Jack to the legendary Nose Guy, there's a good selection of opponents. I was most surprised at the Miku avoidance midway'ish through the game which I found a lot of fun to learn and play around, despite my usual distaste for mid-adventure vocaloid avoidances. The final boss of course is also a classic, Emperor Miku. With 8 whopping phases and some questionable nekoron(?) physics to hinder you in the inevitable infinite jump phase, you'll be in for a ride and a formidable challenge.

Klein's games have a very distinctive style to them, particularly with the platforming. This combined with the fairly fun boss fights and interesting design make for a memorable and pretty challenging adventure game, and definitely a classic one at that.
