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.

A very good puzzle fangame that i would definetly recommend for all puzzle lovers. The game uses diffrent kids which have different abilities as a puzzle mechanic. The game might be a bit too long for some people, but for me it shows the creativity of the creator, because when I thought "Ok the game is fun, but the ending should be soon." I just proggressed to the other screen making me amazed at how long and creative this game really is. The screens at the end started to get really difficult and the one where you start as the explosion kid with the cherry in the middle had me stumped for a while so if you are stuck there don't worry i was as well. The bosses were really interesting for me, because when i saw the first one it was fun and easy, but oh boy the second. At first i only managed to look at 2 screens then 3 and finally multitask with 4. It felt quite satisfying when i finally beat the game. I like how this game had customisable (too lazy look up the actual word) blocks, which i haven't seen before in fangames. I've seen backgrounds, but not blocks, so it was pretty nice. However, this doesn't mean there were no flaws with the game, but there were not many. The main problem was the saving sound, because it was too loud and incredibly repetitive. I also had a problem with the music, because it was overused and i didnt really like it, but that one might just be me. These two things made me turn off the game sound and play my own playlist instead, but besides that the game is definetly worth playing.

This is a puzzle fangame. It's very well made with some minor flaws. The save point triggers every time you respawn and the noise it makes seems loud. Also there are a few skips that can end up with you entering the next stage with the wrong power-up. The puzzles though are very well made and I would definitely recommend. The final boss is sort of weird and may be a turn off to a lot of people. If you like puzzle fangames though you probably have to play this.
