I Wanna Be The Micromedley is a WarioWare inspired half adventure half medley game! It was my first major project and took about 6-7 months to complete. Each of the seven stages is themed differently, from gimmicks, to needle, to bosses. Give it a try, and let me know if you have any suggestions or find any bugs.
Enjoy!

A game which is heavily inspired by the classic Wario Ware games. Several stages with a gimmick unique to that stage as well as a boss stage at the end of each. Every segment in the game is well paced, and the perfect difficulty for how the game is laid out. It's got great production value, and good level design pretty much throughout. The boss stages are all different, interesting, and most importantly very fun! The only thing I could really see being an issue with some people, is the wait time in stages, if you're an impatient person, I'm pretty impatient myself but I was fine with it. There were also some bugs on release because the game maker file crashed, and I don't fully blame him for that (though he should have tested a couple of times through Kappa) but those bugs are mostly fixed now, and the game runs relatively smoothly!

Overall, I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to get into fangames and have completed a couple, and even those who are very experienced, it's a very fun and original game, which is a nice breath of fresh air.

also, the fucking undertale memefight is 10/10

Great fangame all around. Consists of 6 stages and a last boss. Each stage has its own theme, ranging from gimmicks to medley stuff, and consists of a challenge segment where you attempt to beat 15 challenges (Which vary according to the stage's theme) in a row, followed by a "boss challenge" (Which might be an actual boss or just a difficult platforming section). You have 4 lifes to beat the stage, and if you lose them all, you'll have to start the stage from the beginning.
The challenges individually aren't that difficult. Most of them are fairly beginner-friendly, and none of them requires any overly precise maneuver. The entire difficulty comes from getting consistent at finishing them within a time limit. However, since the challenges aren't too difficult to beat, getting consistent at them ends up being lots of fun. Each challenge looks carefully designed to be entertaining on its own, regardless of whether it's a platforming segment or a boss. The medley picks are spot-on, being as entertaining as the original sections. The last boss deviates a bit from the rest of the game, being a cool, but difficult-ish avoidance with some really nice special effects. I like it as well, it's just different from the rest of the game.
The visuals are beautiful, and I have to mention that this game apparently is greatly optimized. Having played bosses similar to the last boss, I was expecting lots of lag due to the huge amounts of particles and special effects, but the game ran smoothly even when I played it full-screen. I don't consider lag as a negative point in my reviews, since it's my fault for having a bad computer anyway, but I certainly appreciate a lot when a fangame has some sort of optimization technique. The music choices are amazing, and the death sound fits well with the mini-game nature of the game.
It's an incredibly well-made fangame with a mini-game feel to it. Highly recommended.

This special game (it actually is the very first time I will use the tag "Special") consists of six independent stages, each one consisting in 15 trials randomly selected for you out of a bunch of 18-20 to test your skills regarding:

-Gimmicks
-Delicious Fruit
-Platforming
-Platforming Medley
-Boss Medley

After beating the 15 trials, you must face a "Boss Stage", which is only harder in terms of length or mere difficulty. Sometimes, it is a review of all the gimmicks you applied.

Hence, overall, the mechanic is heavily inspired by the WarioWare franchise, and it works splendidly.

This is a very complete celebration of what constitutes the more contemporary microcosm of fangaming: needle, platforming, medleys, avoidances, good music, humor, knowledge about the community and its talented makers, and spectacular production value that, for some miraculous reason straight from God, did not make my potato PC crash. Polaroid declares himself openly as a Thewnewgeezer fan and makes a very special game where the perceived difficulty is directly derived from your ability to be consistent and keep momentum. My difficulty rating is, oddly, below the average of the other 34 reviews prior to mine, and I attribute this to me being accustomed to be able to perform almost equally under pressure.

Amazing variety, a great mechanic that pays proper tribute to some of the best fangames released, and a colorful visual design during the final boss much more impressive than Colorful Adventure, and the sellout of Micromedley is not even to be colorful! You just stumble upon it. This is one of the most memorable final bosses in fangames.

Of course, not everything is pretty as roses. I have some grudges. Even with the latest wiki release, my game did crash twice. Also, the restart mechanic is almost useless. Sometimes it doesn't respond, and if you failed one stage and wish to restart the trial, you have to wait for the animation to be over and the next stage to begin before being able to choose to restart because you cannot skip it. That takes me to my next grudge: the Skip button works only for a couple of cutscenes. It doesn't work for every instance of dialogue that you must go over through if you stopped playing and continued another day. What is worse: If you left the boss at an intermediate section (it is divided into three), and cannot finish it on the spot, you must restart everything from the beginning, something I learned the ugly way. The save point right before the final boss is trivial because, if you restart the game, you actually have to wait for the elevator animation to finish and then take the platforms to it, wait for the dialogue you, again, cannot skip, and then hit the "save" again. Finally, the DJ Sray fight input is not precise. It just kills you for no reason. I have that IWKTG fight completely dominated, but here, I would precisely press the arrow as inputs and wouldn't respond: The timing is inaccurate. These numerous, seemingly small issues, harm the gameplay throughout. Ironically, I proudly first-tried the "You Will Not Survive" segment during the final fight.

Other than that, this is entering my list of favorite fangames with the lowest rating possible. It is great, enjoyable, creative, humorous, refreshing and innovative. It also made me feel nerdy: I began with fangames last August, and I had all Quiz questions correct the first time! Oh boy! It certainly has been rewarding to become a wanna-be fangamer, slowly making my steady progress.
