This is a puzzle-heavy game with 10 styles of puzzles with 10 puzzles each of quickly escalating difficulty. The focus is on presenting the player with all information and having them solve puzzles in a logical fashion, integrating a variety of classic puzzle concepts with traditional Fangame platforming.

The platforming difficulty rarely goes above about 40 but the puzzle difficulty will vary by player. Due to this, this game may be very difficult to 100% and it is not recommended to go for it unless you enjoy every puzzle type, but instead focus on the ones that do interest you. View the readme for more information regarding music and visual customization.

Current version is 1.04

I honestly never thought I would see serious puzzles in fangames, but Kurath proved me completely wrong with this. This is probably the best mix of fangame platforming and puzzles you'll ever get to play. There's 10 different puzzle types and 10 puzzles for each, going in an increasing order of difficulty. You'll have to think pretty hard to solve some of the later puzzles for each type. As a puzzle guy, I honestly had a great time with pretty much everything, and even went back to replay some puzzles to find new solutions. There's a lot of stuff on top of the puzzles, too. Customizable character skins and stage themes, a great soundtrack, the fact you can play the puzzle types in any order, and even some pretty crazy bonus content. A maze generator, a chess avoidance and a pretty serious tower defense game you can spend hours on. There's nothing else I could ask of a puzzle fangame in my opinion, and that's why this gets a solid 10 from me. Everyone needs to give this a shot.

I wanted to write a detailed review for this but honestly I gave up. I just can't put into words how much I love this game and how much I want other people to play it. Kurath is a god and has directly inspired what I make and I heavily and genuinely appreciate him for it. 100% is not for everybody but I gurantee that everyone will at least appreciate the amount of freedom you have and how puzzles ease you into things. Just play it. Read Quof's review if my review doesn't convince you.

An incredible puzzle game and one of the best fangames ever. The production value is unreal, with things i never even imagined possible in a fangame. Let's ignore the fact that i could consistently make the game crash 30 seconds after turning it on.
There's 10 styles of puzzles, each with 10 puzzles to puzzle your puzzle yo. Seriously, it's really hard. If you don't have much puzzle experience this will take you a looooong time to complete.
There's also some bonuses which are really cool and people set unbelievably high records on those.
The last thing i want to talk about is that this game is made by Kurath, and Kurath has a damn fine taste in music, with songs that i feel are perfect for ambience but aren't overpowering enough to make thinking about the puzzle hard.
Stellar job mate, well done.
