Significantly easier than the original, but still fun to play. Probably the easiest Rukito game actually worth playing, so newer players will probably appreciate this. The worst save in the game in the Catharsis water area was much better here so I'm satisfied. Final boss still isn't great but it's actually skill-based unlike the original's.

If you want an idea of the relative difficulty compared to the original, the original game took me 1160 deaths and 1h50m, whereas this version took me 442 deaths and 0h44m.

I didn't find the item you need for the extra screen so idk what that's like.

Tweaked and easier version of matryoshka. It's for me a typical case of an easier version of a game that has balancing problems and that easier version solves that just by being easier. Even if the changes made some jumps less interesting, it was a better and smoother experience for me. It also get rid of all the bosses from og version which is a good things because they were honestly not very good, and it has a new final boss : an enjoyable destination one. He's pretty simple because he sadly has only one attack per color, and because the attack order isn't random (it will always go red -> blue -> yellow -> purple) so you can anticipate what's going next, which makes it not super interesting. The game has also an extra screen made by someone else, but you need to find a secret to access it and I didn't found it. (EDIT : thanks to dono indication and to ver 1.1 that allow you to go back to stages, I found it and it's a cool screen except for the platform jump under 2 minispikes that is really tight. It allow you to fight a buffed version of the boss that have dense attacks and the same problems than the og boss)

Worth giving a shot if you weren't a fan of the og version, and still a good game on it's own so just play it I guess.

Game was fun, just a few problems that I found annoying.

I did not play the original but, the first 2 stages were fun then it just got annoying with all the bad ends to saves, which just made me replay the save for no reason. Boss was fun but yellow into purple is a little messed up, could have made the attacks pick at random to fix this but its really not that big of a deal tbh.

The sneeze has finally come! Somewhat, anyways.

This is a modified version of I Wanna be the Matryoshka, a Rukito-like by Dono with bosses from KittyGame. I liked that game a fair bit, but always found it to be rather problematic in several different areas. This game sets out to improve on the original by making it overall easier and removing all the bosses and changing the final boss. Ultimately, I think this was a pretty successful upgrade!

There are still some irritating jumps, and some of the nerfs actually kill interesting saves at times, but for the most part this was a far smoother experience. Every stage has something offer and felt enjoyable to play through, though the final stage had most of the problem saves (this was the same in the original as well, though it's still better here).

I personally didn't have much issue with most of the bosses from Matryoshka, but I don't necessarily mind their extrication. Nonetheless, the final boss is actually pretty good, being a Destination-like. It's a bit simplistic and pretty easy, but I still had a fun time beating it.

Overall, this is easily recommended for lovers of the Rukito-like genre or people that just want themselves a good needle game with light gimmicks.
