Very good trap game, the core gameplay on it's own is good, with a lot of neat little gimmicks throughout, with traps often expanding upon the gameplay and making it more complex. It's sort of the embodiment of less is more, it's just four stages but each one feels concise, to the point, and satisfying. The bosses are also quite good, they have a nice variety of attacks and are fun and smooth to play, also they are very cute. There's really no bad parts to this game, it's just really good.

Walpurgis is a really fun adventure game that brings a lot of different things to the table. The first stage is a funny trap focused stage, with several good multi-stage traps. The second stage is the highlight of the game, featuring a cool metroidvania of sorts where you collect items to unlock other areas. The screens are designed well so backtracking is never annoying, and there are some clever puzzley elements. This stage also has a mini-avoidance with a time gimmick that makes it pretty interesting to play. The third stage is a bit weaker imo, it has a few annoying saves, with some awkward traps. The fourth stage is a bit unmemorable, but it has some fun gimmicks and enjoyable cycle-based gameplay.

Another highlight of the game is the bosses. They're easier than the platforming, but they're really fun, with some cool attacks that are fun to figure out. I do wish the game was consistent with the Madoka theming, one boss is randomly not a Madoka character, and it means 2 of the Madoka girls get left out, which is a shame but not necessarily something worth taking points off for. The final boss was a bit anticlimactic, although I like how it brought in the sniper gimmick from the stage.

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.
