Extremely well-made fangame. Lots of variety, with plenty of gimmicks, some mini-games and a couple traps mixed in, divided between multiple stages that look and feel pretty different from each other. The game feels extremely fluid, with no huge roadblocks on the platforming or at the bosses, so there's probably no point in the game where the player will feel discouraged to continue playing. The mini-games are pretty creative (Specially the golf stage) and fun to play. The gimmicks range between creative and relatively common, but every single of them is used really well. The traps are pretty funny and there aren't too many of them (The only trap stage is the first one). Some of them are also quite unexpected. The bosses are equally as creative, with some really cool attacks and concepts.
There are also plenty of cool small details, like the warning sign that appears when you try to overwrite a save, the visual effects that happen whenever you use a gimmick in the last stage, pretty much the whole Pokemon stage, the stage transitions and other stuff. The visuals and the music choices are great, and there are some nice sound effects to make the game livelier.
There's also a little 'story' behind it. It's pretty light-hearted and fits pretty well in the game, justifying a lot of stuff that happens in it. It's actually pretty original too, and probably something that only an IWBTG fangame could pull off.
I'm overjoyed. I'm kinda reluctant to give a 10 to a fangame, but I believe this game deserves it. It has pretty much everything I could possibly want in a fangame: Variety, creativity, immersion, balance, great design, great visuals, great music choices, great gameplay and overall I simply can't find anything wrong with it. Highly recommended.

A fantastic adventure game that was featured as the blind race event at Fangame Marathon 2016!

If there's ever a top 5 list for adventure fangames, this certainly deserves a spot. Well-paced areas, fair difficulty curve, and unique gimmicks really brings out some of the best the Western community has to offer. A job well done!

Perhaps the best fangame ever made. This was made for the FGM 2016 (Fangame Marathon 2016) and its quite surprisingly well made. All of the levels are made well, althrough there are minor flaws, such as one platform block in the Cave Story area not properly carrying you, and the 2nd phase of the final boss being RNG garbage, but the rest of the game is incredibly well done. The traps in the first level are genuinely cool and funny, the gimmick in the last stage is really cool and fun and the bosses are fun and never too unfair. Would recommend.

Wow... mind blown, game is so well put together. Everything was fantastic and I even loved the golf/pokemon segments thrown in as a nice way to mix things up from platforming. Only minor downside was the sonic stage feeling a little bit tedious in some areas but it was still a fantastic stage overall. A must play for sure!

Side note: Mario stage was my favorite stage. It was so good loved every bit of it, Absolutely phenomenal.

The only genuine 10 I think I will ever give for a fangame, after watching it at FGM I kind of knew what was going on so it was a bit easier. Even so this is one of the best gimmick games I have ever played. The areas are creative and look amazing, please play this!
