Really well-made puzzle fangame where you have to switch between different Kids with different kinds of abilities. It's a bit too long, but all the puzzles are really well-made, so it's worth the time it takes. There are two bosses, the first one being a kind of training for the last one. They use an interesting concept, although the top right side can be quite unfair sometimes.
It's a fun game with a really interesting concept. Would recommend.

Fantastic needle game with puzzle elements, and a cool gimmick that involves switching between different Kids with different abilities, based on Carnival's games. The game has brilliant pathing, and while there is the occasional room that may have you stuck for a while, it's not really difficult to figure out, and really fun as well once you figure out what to do. There's also a couple of avoidances, which test your ability to use the different Kids' powers (the final one, multiple at the same time). Overall, if you're looking for needle/puzzle games with some gimmicks, I'd highly recommend this one.

Good puzzle game with an interesting gimmicks where you can change your kid with others with special abilities. Don't really understand why some people say that the game is too long, it has a good lentgh and is enough to show all the maker's creativity. The game has however some weak points, like the first room with the angel kid being absolute garbage, the save sound being annoying and very loud compared to every other sound in the game, which is very irritating because it uses touch saves, and the sound of the angel kid being too strident. The final boss is very mind blowing, you have to controle 4 different kids at the same time, each one woth its own controls and particularity, it was a very well made and satifiying boss. 50 in difficulty is for a few rough spots.

Definitely an above average fangame. The creativity is of a very decent quality as you are placed 7 alternative options for The Kid, incarnating Crimson characters you have seen before in Carnival games, each featuring a different ability:

-Normal Kid, who has no changes
-Red Kid, who can shoot cherries away
-Green Kid, who can both go through green cherries and hop on green platforms
-Blonde Kid, who can triple-jump
-Blue Kid, who can hop on water and swim through it
-White Kid, who can go through spikes without dying as long as he crosses them perpendicularly
-Black (Bat) Kid, who can shoot bullets that cause a huge explosion and get rid of cherries and blocks
-Angel Kid, who can fly horizontally for a distance of four blocks

IWD applies creativity unarguably and creates some very fun and challenging puzzles that require above-average needle experience, so this is not a game for beginners, but for those looking forward to put their brain to work! The needle difficulty is quite fair, so approach with no fear.

You also get to choose the design f the blocks. All of them are green, but the entire background is. There is no visual variety background/area-wise, but the music and the mood are good enough to justify it.

The concept is unexploited, however, as it is only used for platforming. Some boss action would have been amazing after each area. There are several potential ideas for bosses behind, given that when you shoot cherries as the Red Kid, the green ones follow you, so you could flip them back to the boss. The Bat Kid could hit weak spots or make the final fatality. If the boss flooded the screen, you would have to use the Blue Kid to avoid drowning, or if the boss attacked with perperndicular spikes, the White Kid is your choice. Man, one or many bosses would be amazing! Or a final boss combining all the gimmicks!

Still, I recommend this game. It is well done, atmospherically chill, pleasant to the eye and should be much more well-known.

There are two main sections to the game. The first section presents an individual platforming challenge for each kid, but the second screen presents the challenge of controlling four kids at once! Insane. Thanks to that screen, my difficulty spiked up to 50, and "kind of" "ruins" it, but not really.

The intent was to make a puzzle game. The goal was well accomplished.
