My first fangame and my first time using Game Maker, ever. I kept the difficulty of this game low since I expected at least half of the players for this to be Distorted Travesty fans and not fangame players. As a result, the needle in this game and the platforming in general is fairly forgiving. Despite that, the bosses ended up being fairly difficult since I was basing them off absurdly powerful Distorted Travesty characters. I hope both fangamers and DT fans enjoy this game, though retrospectively I definitely mishandled the design of the first level.

4 levels with different aesthetics
25~ gameplay maps/screens
2 main bosses, 1 additional super-hard will-take-hours-of-grinding-to-beat bonus boss available through the end screen

Time to complete:
1-2~ hours, double that if you go for the bonus boss

Distorted Travesty download and other stuff (this game is one big reference to Distorted Travesty, though it stands on its own gameplay-wise):

Having not played Distorted Travesty, I imagine I missed a fair chunk of references and such when playing through this. Regardless, I enjoyed it nonetheless. For his first game, Quof made some really fun stuff here, and it makes for a somewhat short but enjoyable challenge.

The game consists of a couple of stages, each with a boss at the end. The stages make use of couple gimmicks, such as a colour-switching gimmick to get past certain gates, killing enemies and making it past moving cycles. Nothing feels too hard or crazy, and there's also a couple of exploits you can do regarding making the gimmick easier, or just bypassing a section of a save entirely.

The strength of the game for me was in the bosses, mainly the second one which felt to me like a Rukito-style barrage boss. The attacks were fun to read and varied enough that each one was interesting and not a letdown to randomly get. There's even an extra-version of the boss if you feel like challenging yourself after the game which is a pretty tricky but enjoyable challenge.

The double-jump animation might throw some people off, which I assume again is a reference to Distorted Travesty, but I got adjusted to it fairly quickly. The game also has some little text-addons in each screen within the game window, although I forgot about them for most of the game.

Overall a pretty fun and short adventure. The highlight for me was definitely the final boss, and I'd look forward to seeing more if Quof gets another itch for fangame making!

Pretty good for a first game, I've already outlined my complaints with quof while streaming it so I won't harp on the issues. The two bosses were both fun and it was some nice fanservice as a fan of the DT series.

Quite short and quite bad fangame. First of all you'll notice that second jump sound and effect are mildly disturbing.

First stage gimmick is switching colours of the bullets which makes gameplay completely unbearable as it forces you to constatly spam shift, Z and X buttons in correct order. It would be somewhat fine if you could rebind jump to Up but there's no options in the game.
First boss is actually well made but I have to mention that time between the end of every attack and spawning black killing circle differs on every attack type which impedes the learning process.

Second stage is much more fun to play and actually requires a bit of thinking instead of spamming buttons.
Second boss on the other hand is a complete rng bullshit. You have to survive 10 attack in random order there BUT some attacks have solid chance to just straight wall you.
