No Sayaka boss, 0/10.

Walpurgis is a fun, medium length adventure game. It consists of four stages of platforming, with one boss at the end of each stage. The platforming is great. There's a very much healthy variety of gimmicks, with a few amusing traps sprinkled in - not quite on the soul-reading level that some modern trap fangames reach, but comparable to a high mid-tier trap fangame like 針ゲ or hanamogeta. The difficulty generally comes from a few particularly precise segments, but nothing that requires that much effort. I want to reiterate the variety part because there is a mini-metroidvania-not-really-a-metroidvania-but-let's-call-it-a-metroidvania-anyway (All items are more or less keys in the end, so it's not really a metroidvania by these standards https://platformadventure.weebly.com/uploads/8/6/9/1/8691987/metroidvania-flowchart-reddit-ver_orig.png) stage, and I really liked it.
The bosses are themed on Madoka Magica (ft. one Idolmaster boss???), and even though the platforming is also great, I feel inclined to call them the highlight of the game. All of them feature smoothly animated movement, shouting out attack names and, most importantly, a very nice variety of attacks. The last boss could have been a tad harder, but it's fine.

It's a pretty great game overall. Doesn't do anything particularly wrong, does a lot right. Would definitely recommend.

Side note: There's a short avoidance mini-boss, which is why I'm using the avoidance tag, but it's short and relatively harmless, so even if you don't like avoidances, don't let that stop you.

Walpurgis is a great adventure game and one of my favourites by Marimario. The game consists of a few stages all with a good helping of traps, the majority of which I found to be creative and amusing. Every stage feels very different from the last too, such as a castle where you need to find key items to unlock other areas, or an oldschool Donkey Kong Country stage. There's the odd gimmick now and again too to spice things up a little, and I felt they were usually used well.

Every stage also features a boss, all featured around Madoka Magica. The attacks are generally RNG-heavy without a great deal of learning needed, something which I always prefer. That's not to say there aren't a couple of insta-gib moments first time around, and boss 2 in particular has a fair share of scamp moments, but regardless it remained fun throughout.

An all-around solid game, and one I'd easily recommend so long as you're not opposed to the occasional trap-heavy shenanigans.

An excellent Madoka Magica themed game. Traps are mostly well-made and bosses are fun. Stage 2 espacially is really good. I'm just a bit disappointed by the final boss (I found it too easy compared to others) and the detection box of roppes is too small, but otherwise it's really a great game.

Pretty fun adventure game from Marimario that has a good bit of production flair to it and of course more anime girls to torment you. It's a pretty enjoyable game overall, though be careful streamers or some of the music might DMCA you hard.

I'm a fan of the variety of each stage, there's always something interesting going on and it definitely feels like a true adventure. The game is heavily trap based which helps it maintain a funny flavor, and they're usually pretty fair mostly and never annoying. There are a few platforming segments I didn't care for, such as disappearing ropes or a timed water save, and I thought the short avoidance could be completely unfair at times. The bosses are pretty easy, though I did think the second one was the hardest out of the four which felt rather odd.

Overall, once again just another great release from Marimario, I would definitely recommend it if you want to have a fun trap-filled adventure with bosses on the easy side.
