A new favorite, hands down.

Denferok is one of the most important contributors to the site and almost every stage is full of detail and atmosphere. The caverns segments were a tad generic, but somewhat fun to play. The underground factory segment was a little bit annoying. The rest, however, was quite astonishing, non-repetitive and creative. Boss battles are breathtaking to such extent that I was very tempted to upload some screenshots about them since they are very representative of the game, but it is best to experience this blindfolded, unless someone decides to upload them. There is quite some brain work required during the puzzle solving which, thanks to the atmosphere and overall tone of the game, exponentialized by the great soundtrack, is never boring to execute.

In a way, and strangely enough, it made me miss in a nostalgic way an old-school favorite that I could never grasp: I Wanna See the Moon. That classic is clearly an inspiration. I love some old-school fun myself, but the maze repetitiveness, the cryptic parts and the awful visual design really put me off and made the experience frustrating. It was a long, ambitious adventure and I would never say there wasn't any heart put into it (it had a few great bits), but the result was a mess overall. The highlight was the "See the Moon" segment and, for some reason, it made me glad that this fangame paid tribute to that specific part towards the ending.

This is one of the nicest examples of how adventure fangames should be made in the exceedingly rare case that the homage subgenre of fangames such as IWBTG, IWBTB or I wanna Run the Marathon are not quite your cup of tea because you're looking for something more authentic and "original" (although, as artists, we are all stealers in a way; what matters is the new art you create with what you stole).

So far, this is one of the Top 50 fangames ever made.

The boss gauntlet at the end brings the difficulty up substantially. Generally great platforming, with the difficulty of the other bosses being roughly equal. The puzzles are clever, though the laser puzzles felt forced in, seeing how minimal a role they played in the platforming. The ice stage is very confusing; I think it would help substantially if the saves you've already visited were indicated as such in some way.

A great game overall, with the highest of highs.

The difficulty is really underrated. Puzzles here are pretty hard to figure out, the final boss is not 45 I'm sure.
