Vandal is a needle/gimmick game with some small adventure elements. I wanted to make something a little bigger than my previous solo projects, inspired by a few other releases and makers. I estimated it to be somewhere between 60-70 difficulty but judging my own creations has always been a little tricky.

I poured a lot of time into this over the last couple months and ended up with a platforming experience I'm pretty happy with, and I'd love to see other people enjoy it as well. Best of luck on becoming The Vandal!

Fangames have always been something very intimate, very personal, and almost magical to me. The amount of effort and energy that can go into one can sometimes be infinitely more demanding than you think for even the simplest of things, and at the end still feel worth it, on both the player's and the maker's point of view. It can be incredibly hard to make one nowadays that can be so easily highlighted from the daily bunch and truly stand out to the community as purely creative, fun and beautiful in every sense of the word, considering the stupendously high standards some of our members tend to have. As both a creator and player myself, seeing a fangame to fit that quota of sorts can be very charming and a real sight to behold, and at the very same time one of the most demotivating things ever. Demotivating because you feel like you can't even create anything as well-made or well thought out, as stunningly gorgeous in terms of graphic and sound design, or even get close to the same level as a maker who in merely over 2 months can confidently make a magnum opus that oozes of his own character and brilliancy, fitting of nothing else but the title of my own favorite fangame ever.
I Wanna be the Vandal is exactly that, and exactly the union of all that I love to see in a fangame. Wolfiexe's style just gets more and more magnificent with every game he produces and it's truly jaw-dropping the fact that I can tell it's made by him from only looking at the title screen for a second. The amount of makers who are so distinct from the rest to the point they can be this easily pinpointed is ridiculous to me, in the best way possible. The attention to detail in every screen, how it connects everything into one not only in the gameplay sense but of the overall atmosphere, the wonderful music taste and unsurprisingly fancy aesthetic production. Those are very few of the many evidences of Wolfie's genius mind at work, for me it's what I expected, what I wanted and much more, and I don't imagine it being a very different experience to anyone else. The amount of feelings and emotions that you can pull from a player with a constantly overlooked and underappreciated genre, the creation of a more real and vivid sense of progression with each and every screen, all of them so different from the other yet so logically fitting to the creator's nature is completely astonishing, it's so difficult to describe it as anything else when you can barely put it into words, I've never played a fangame where I went through an experience as sensitive and surreal as this one.
As a good friend of this maker, I cannot help but feel honored that he wanted me to testplay this, easily the most memorable fangame to me and the most personal one too. Many times during testplay I've cried over how far more gorgeous and better than any of my own projects it was, and it makes me so glad that there's creators like him who are constantly improving and waiting to release the new best fangame. At the same time that it is so demotivating it reminds me that this is anything but a competition over the best maker. This is a fangame made from the heart and it just shows how much untapped potential there still is for all aspects of any game, this should serve as influence for anyone who wants to make one and a representation of what there is to be really valued in a fangame.
I can only thank and appreciate how you've managed to make this in such little time and how you've been always perfecting it to its' best possible state and condition, a maker like you deserves so much more attention and support. I can only hope that you get the best feedback, the best response from a community such as ours, regardless of how bashful, negative and dramatic it can really be. It's upsetting to me that certain people won't feel the same as I do writing this review, finally being able to talk about my favorite game as much as I want and praise it as much as I want.
It only fills me with hope for what you have and will eventually bring next to us, I wait eagerly for whatever project you'll work on next. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for making this game and for making me feel this passionate about it.

As a certain detective would say,

Anyway let's get the possibly weird difficulty rating out of the way. As someone who was not familiar with 90% of the gimmicks used, this game was really hard. Especially a certain screen later on.

The needle is amazing, there are only two jumps in this game that are doozies. Jumps felt very satisfying to pull off and are very creative. Most of that creativity comes from the wacky gimmicks used. Straight up needle isn't here very much and that is a good thing cause there are so many cool gimmicks that make more interesting jumps. I don't really want to spoil them though :)

you will find plenty of good tilesets and music in this game. Especially the Umineko stuff. Don't have a single piece of music or tileset I dislike. Everything looked smooth.

I have really nothing to complain about and can recommend this game to pretty much any experienced player, as long as you don't mind vines and all the needle add-ons.
