50 Reviews:

This game is filled to the brim with charm and I smiled throughout the entire thing.
One of the most pleasent fangame experiences ever.

Because I am a huge dick, I will give the game 9.9 instead of 10 because of minor grammatical errors throughout the game.

This game has Erik written all over it, and I think it's the best thing he's created to date. The graphics are amazing, and the fact that he hand drew everything is super impressive. The gimmick is also pretty fun and implemented in an interesting way. I didn't find any of the three forms to be faulty, although I seemed to only use the big kid when I had to. Maybe if you made his bullets do a bit more damage it would be a better choice for the bosses? I think that choosing between vulnerability and damage is a really cool concept for a boss fight. (You sort of have that already, but I don't think the damage boost for the big kid is enough to justify playing a boss with him.) Speaking of the boss fights, I really liked all of them. They remind me of the boss fights in cuphead with the multiple and varied phases. The attack patterns are pretty fair and dodgeable and they were overall a blast to fight. There is one tiny change I would make in the first boss, make the apples a bit more visible over the big apple so you can react to them better. Also I have a suggestion for the gimmick controls, if you could swap sizes with the up and down arrows it would be a lot less awkward to control. There isn't really much else I would add to this game. It was all super fun!

This is easily Erik's best work to date. This game oozes charm and personality thanks to his hand drawn art that has that unique Erik style. All of the bosses and sprites look great as well as their animations. The game itself is designed well and has an accessible difficulty level so players of all skill ranges can enjoy it. The bosses are fairly well done and I especially like the giant boss segments of them.

There's a gimmick that let's you change forms that gives you some variety on how to approach various segments. It doesn't quite reach it's full potential, but at the same time it never feels cumbersome in relation to the gameplay. Definitely worth checking out if only to admire the art work.

Really cute game based on a gimmick of changing size, the whole thing is super charming with the visuals all being hand-drawn art, which is extremely impressive and adds lots of character to the game. It's also very fun to play, with solid platforming and bosses that are fun even if you aren't a beginner player. I think this game is great and an excellent example of what a beginner fangame should strive to be.
