Adventure (1) Avoidance (1)

Kind of a strange little game. Hard to classify but I'd call it a short adventure game. Opens with some ominous narration which continues throughout the game. The production is quite good. The aesthetic is very simple at times but fits the ambience, sprinkling in additional effects when suitable.

The platforming is pretty needly with some gimmicks, The readme curiously indicates that he didn't put much thought into it and it some places it definitely shows, but for the most part the integration of slightly less standard gimmicks plays out reasonably well. The last stage, however, was pretty bad as it degraded into bland 32px needle except with minor obfuscation on your character, what a great gimmick.

The boss was super RNG heavy to the point of being annoying at times, though it wasn't particularly difficult so it wasn't a dealbreaker, but it could've used some revision. The avoidance at the end is also fairly RNG heavy and while rarely, would do really stupid things.

Overall its pretty decent. There's some visibility problems (including the pre-final boss save which was irritating as the last platforming save sucked and i did it several times before accidentally triggering it). Visuals are clean and music is fitting and the author clearly put some effort into creating an ambiance. Its worth playing if you're looking for a shortish (~1-2 hour), kind of weird little game.

The difficulty rated on the old version (Not 1.01), before a few nerfs. Will rate new version once finished.

This game has great production value (especially considering its the makers first fangame) with decent platforming, great visuals, and nice effects that dont distract from the gameplay.

The only thing I didnt like was the boss fight as I felt a few of the attacks were unfair and were too RNG heavy, but then again I am not very good at bosses!

Overall I enjoyed this game quite a bit.
