Most of the game wasn't anywhere near as bad to me as the reviews made me think it would be. There are three stages. The first two are as straightforward as it gets. They make clear that the maker has no sense of difficulty balance, and the jump sound might get on your nerves after a few minutes, but that's about it. The platforming is basic needle, with no particularly precise jumps and a generous amount of saves (With a few exceptions I can think of). It doesn't stand out in any way, but I didn't hate playing any parts of it either. Breezing through the screens without even paying attention to 90% of it was enjoyable in a way. It's what I classify as "Likeably mediocre", which is the kind of game I usually rate as 4.5.
The third stage has invisible warps, though, and these threw me off a bit. There are multiple routes, and, mainly on the first screen, it's hard to tell just by looking where the warp is supposed to be, so you have to go around jumping everywhere, as if you were looking for a secret.
The bosses aren't particularly easy, but they aren't particularly difficult either. They only have two attacks: Fast aimed projectiles and fast projectile bursts (Usually circle-shaped). The first two were OK, the third would be OK as well, were it not for the horrendous unskippable intro. This boss, along with the stage it belongs in, made me lower my rating a bit.

In the end, just "Mediocre" is enough to describe this game as I see it. It's even enjoyable, to some extent. It's more than I can say about anything I consider legitimately bad, for sure. Still, "mediocre" is still a pretty bad tier to have your game ranked as, for sure.

First I would like to premise that multiple people told the creator on Discord about the problems this game had but he didn't really care about feedback, even though he would ask for it and while this review is certainly not out of spite, it is my honest opinion.

Here are the main issues I have with this game:
Very generic, with not a lot of variation in terms of anything.
Save blockers go from all over the place to non existent.
The jump sound is so awful that I had to mute the game literally 30 second into the game.
The creator in a lot of rooms gives the player multiple ways to the portal, but there is always one way that is much easier than the others, making the others pointless.
No screen transition saves (and while not a big issue) would help.
The bosses are boring and consist of 2 - 3 of the same attacks over and over again with i-frames.

In this games defense, by the end of the game, you can easily see an improvement when it comes to needle design, but it still doesn't make it fun or worth playing. The background animation is nice though, thanks to Patrick. Overall I would say dont play it and hopefully the creator can take the advice given and make a better, more fleshed out game.

This game doesn't deserve all the hate it gets because of who specifically made it. So many people were probably rooting for this game to be bad. It is, but it isn't offensive by any stretch of the imagination. I hope Endog takes the feedback from these reviews into consideration and at least turns his next game into a 1.5 out of 10. With that being said, this game is still really bad, but I could sense some improvement in the level design by the end.

The entire game feels unpolished, uninteresting and uninspired. All of the rooms are bland and boring with the occasional trigger you need to activate. A lot of the rooms feel like filler just to kill time. Speaking of killing time the final boss has a 22 second unskippable intro. There's no reason to play this game, not even as a meme.
