Rating based on 100%. Any% is far far less substantial and probably rates more like a 40 difficulty. I'm going to come out the gate and say I would recommend anyone interested in secret hunting or platforming heavy adventure games to give this a shot, but don't necessarily commit to 100%. The difficulty does spike up quite substantially in certain parts and there's a couple things that may make one rethink their goals.

Its a great exploration based secret hunting game (primarily) with gorgeous original visuals and art, in a well designed custom engine that still has the fangame feel while being adapted to make the game play smoother.

Out of the gate, it looks beautiful and its all custom made. It's in a 60 fps engine with a smaller field of view for more compact levels but higher detail and it feels smooth (there's one exception to this but alas, more on this later). Contains all the QoL options you'd like to see and just never falters from an art perspective.

The gameplay is designed as a simple adventure game initially, where the player gains some powerups that will allow them to have more gameplay options as they progress and, more importantly, be able to return and explore future areas with the new powerups to find secrets. There's a decent balance of secrets that are immediately accessible with those that need later powerups, giving the player options at any time to decide to progress or to go exploring. The base any% path is pretty easy and smooth and is fun, but far less exceptional.

The bosses are simple and interesting, while staying quite easy. If you're a platforming player primarily, these should not be a problem for you in any capacity and conversely, if you're looking for adventure games to play with epic boss fights, this isn't really up that alley.

The platforming and exploration is, of course, the meat of the game. As its a custom engine, it sticks to its strength and shies away from needle, instead introducing a wide variety of gimmicks and enemies as its obstacles instead and does it pretty well. Expect some traps, though its not a focus, lots of cycles and lots of interactions to feel out. It does this, for the most part, extremely well and every step of the way pretty much introduces cool new interactions to get used to, leading up to a final stage where it continues to introduce new mechanics and bring all the old ones together.

The downside, and where the game falters a bit is partly due to this variety. However, and my issue with the game is when it does this, it doesn't feel like 'oh, i didn't like this stage or screen or save so much' as you might expect and excuse in a game. It really reaches the 'what were they thinking tier' from time to time - and unfortunately enough times that it does hurt the game in the long run. This really hurts the flow of the game, because these are frequently the hardest and longest segments that somehow manage to also have the worst design. Fortunately, none of these are required to enjoy the game, they only gate the final stage (where most of them occur) and you can get a ton out of it confidently being able to bail out of things that you don't want to do.

Overall, its great. Its a beautiful game with a ton of creativity and variety in it and absolutely fills a niche I think the community's been missing out on this year, while still being solid and deep enough to be a game worth playing for new fangamers in the future. Definitely recommend it to anyone who likes adventure game style platforming and/or likes secret hunting, as that's where its core really lies, but its absolutely good enough that I'd recommend anyone atleast give a try to.

Difficulty is for any%, rating is for a good attempt of treasure hunting.
A very good looking exploration of treasure hunting game, it has a great production and of very good attention to details. I really had a blast playing it and discovering every level, trying to get every treasure I see on my first playthrough. However treasure hunting while I've beaten the final boss was less fun, and some of the treasures were beyond stupid and way too unfun to be worth grinding (1-1 third secret, the trials, a lot of way too long saves and the list goes on) to a point just playing 10 min was pissing me off so I decided to call it a day even if I only found 29/50.

I would highly recommend any% and to play while treasure hunting is fun, but I would highly go against 100% and recommend to skip everything that looks too much for you.
