The final game of the Best Guy series. It also has a hard mode which is called Lv.8 like BG2's Crazy mode and BG3's Death Wish, but I won't include it in the Difficulty and Review. I would give this 75~85 if I add Lv.8.

This game has an Achievement system. The bottom 10 of them are actually secret items in the game(rolled paper) and it gives you a special ability if you equip it.

Also this game has a sliding feature and succeeds the fulljumping mechanic from the previous game.

Stage 1 : You'll notice that the style of the game has changed a lot, from 'mostly needle' game to 'mostly enemy-killing' game. Notable thing in this stage are a mini-boss(giant crab) and sandstorm gimmick. The sandstorm gimmick is cool for me, but some people might consider it boring.
Boss 1(Sandworm) : This boss is actually pretty tricky, especially its 'train' pattern. But other than that it's a relatively easy boss.
Stage 2 : Ninja crabs falling from the sky! Also there's a part where you bounce on the giant worms and progress. Overall a pretty decent platforming.
Boss 2(Stalker) : Most 'meh' boss imo. It's bland for me. If you die at its last pattern, there's a special death animation & music at there.
Stage 3 : Creepy stage with...cockroaches? Also mad crows and bowling nests. Can't forget these big stones! Use a rocket launcher to deal with big stones in case you don't know how to get past that. Pretty hard stage for me. In the end, there is a destroyed town and a woman, and......
Boss 3(Tombstone) : Suddenly one giant tombstone is in front of your face. The weakness is its yellow core at the top, but you can choose to stay down and rocket spam its body. Mostly a decent boss. Yellow side sweeping attack will be a pain if you can't slide well.
Stage 4 : Castle with a lot of armored guards. This stage is the hardest of all stages. However, if you find some secret paths, you might have a more comfortable time here. Notable things are the mini-boss and that long climbing final part which is totally a pain.
Boss 4(Altace) : This boss is the boss that is most dependant on RNG. Her blue bomb is VERY tricky to handle. Also, the five horizontal-moving bullet wall is pretty hard to react if you're at the wrong position. Overall a hard boss.
Final stage : Nothing that much special, just a bunch of mediocre platforming. I liked that crystal jumping part though.
Final boss(Counterfeit) : He's back again! For final this time. He has THREE health bars and his defense goes up each time one depletes. Also, in the process of depletion, he summons 1 and 2 clocks. If you don't break it until it circles full one cycle, you'll instantly die. It usually breaks with 4 rockets. He summons one of the past bosses' pattern in the middle of the fight which was pretty cool considering this is the last series. He also keeps his unique final pattern, but with the 2 clocks and occasional screen flipping. Overall a hardest counterfeit in the entire series, excluding the hard mode versions of the series.

After you defeat him, Altace finally warps you back home. Thus ends the Best Guy series.

Overall a great game which I enjoyed very much. This is a par to BG3 in terms of enjoyment. However it gets extra .5 point for the awesome graphics.

Thank you Gustav for making the Best Guy series!

All I can say was, really great game, the only thing I didn't like was the full jump all the time, bad thing. I would had rated a 10, but that full jump every time thing ruined it for me, but really great game, highly recommend it!

Well, it was tough. Whole platforming was pretty... eh... unenjoyable for me. Legendary classic, best guy kid which always fulljump (YAY)
1-3 bosses was kinda okay. Worm had tricky "train" attack. Stalker was just meh, final wasn't fun. Monolith pretty decent and easy.
Now, about 4-th boss, altace, she is really rng dependant, one blue sphere easily can mess you up, and ofc your jumps not so good for her attacks. But she was also pretty interesting.
Now about best part of the programm. Gustav. He is pretty intense, and had really dynamical music. Attacks pretty interesting to dodge, and you need pretty much concentration on him. Also, he had 3 health bars, when you put one down, you got 1\2 clocks and new phase with new attacks and timings on old attacks more precise. And as absolute classic, pattern with homing bombs and lazers, which is tricky. Wouldn't recommended this game tho, only Gustav was really fun, and idk if someone would enjoy him too.
And also, LV8 which is version without platforming, but with buffed bosses. Enjoy your stay on altace and gustav... and someone else.

В игре просто ужасный мусорный платформинг.
Боссы интересные, но все их атаки выполнены на реакцию и тайминг, требуют дикой концентрации на протяжении всей битвы, что для меня приводило в гнев.
При этом в игре есть секретные предметы, благодаря которым можно пройти любого босса без труда.
Я никому не рекомендую эту игру.
Оценка сложности основана на прохождении БЕЗ использования предметов.
