It hurt my feelings when I saw that the maker of this game referred to it as "low quality" in the readme (though maybe something got lost over Google Translate). I think they should maybe stop being so hard on themselves. This game has very fun platforming and amazingly designed bosses throughout, anyone who enjoys more minimalistic adventure games should definitely try this one!

Very fun old-school adventure game featuring a lot of content, with some brown tiles stages and some stages with way more production value like a lot of old adventure games do. The only thing that annoyed me is the buffed red apple boss in the boss rush, but one good idea of the game is to let you choose if you wanna have 1 or 2 hp for each boss making it way less annoying, and same for the second half of the game since the it becomes way harder from the boss rush. Special mention for the final avoidance for being by far one of the best I have played, with many interesting and fair attacks, being not too long and having a banger music.
Would highly recommend, especially if you like the charm of old-school adventure games.

This game starts out pretty fun with some nice traps and easy saves, but then it reaches a boss rush where it suddenly gets way harder. 3/4 of the bosses have annoyingly long i-frames and tons of difficult attacks, and the 4th one is a fun avoidance that feels very easy in comparison to the other bosses. All the stuff following the boss rush is enjoyable and has nice production value, though.

If you can push through the grindy boss rush, this game is definitely worth playing.

Rating based on using 2 HP per boss, which I definitely suggest.

Normal Space is a weird game due to how mixed my reaction to it is, for the most part, it's a chill experience that is pretty typical of the old school eastern game, but then there's one stage near the end that really just makes it feel way less fun than it should.

The game starts with a hub of four worlds, you can choose between one of the first two stages and then the other to unlock the next two. Each of these stages represents that classic feeling, traveling through common locations with typical tilesets like the grasslands and whatnot. Each of them also contains a boss, one of them actually being an avoidance that's pretty decent while the other is just those typical villainous cherries. I never found any of these stages to be unpleasant, except for one in the castle stage that involved shooting a Miniboss enemy in a pretty awkward arena.

What comes after this though is a god-awful boss rush stage, because who doesn't love those. You get to basically fight the previous four bosses again, except now they have been extremely buffed to the point they are basically new fights. That actually sounds interesting right, until you realize just how annoying the buffs made them, specifically on how long the fights are now. They all have I-Frames and can last a couple of minutes each attempt, and of course, are actually pretty difficult now while not actually being fun at all. It is this area I specifically recommend using the Heart Signs for, which allows you to toggle having 2 HP each boss instead of 1. The boss rush also ends with a fifth fight that's actually rather long with a couple of phases and has a pretty RNG final to it at the very end.

Past the boss rush stage the game actually manages to pick up in quality again somewhat, or at the very least it's two needle stages that aren't offensive at all. The visuals are also a lot better here since they're a bit more flashy, though I wish this could have just been applied to the entire game instead. Following the needle comes a final avoidance, and it's pretty decent, and certainly a lot easier than anything that was in boss rush.

Overall, I think Normal Space is a pretty solid game, but know that the boss rush is downright horrible if you choose to only have 1 HP, and still pretty bad in general. I'd recommend the game either way outside of it though.
