An adventure about as zany as they come. While it gets frankly completely unhinged with its gimmicks, the game puts most of its focus on them, over more traditional forms of difficulty from precision. This makes exploration of the gimmicks more fundamental to the gameplay than most similar games.
The game is structured in the rarely seen, but highly effective format, a main game that's shorter than it could have potentially been, that's instead filled to the brim with many different forms and layers of optional content.
100% is a spiritual journey.

Somewhat disappointingly this game is more of a gimmick needle game than an adventure, but I still had a lot of fun playing through it. I respect the creators for truly going "mask-off" with the gimmicks (As my good friend Wolfiexe would put it.) The platforming is harder than I expected, with some moments where I felt like I was completely fumbling around the controls. If you are on controller this might be a rough experience because a lot of switching between all 4 arrow keys is required. The hub and production value are incredible and make me wish the game was longer than it is. There are really only two bosses to speak of; the first one is a joke, and the second one can be a bit frustrating due to the aforementioned controls fumbling. I was hoping for a final boss of sorts to wrap everything up.

Interestingly, I find the game's extra content to be a lot better than the main content. The secret hunting and puzzle solving is a delight and is what really makes this game stand out in my eyes. The detail put into all the collectable cards is impressive too.

Overall, a very unique and smart game that has both more and less under the surface that initially seems. If you're going to go for 100%, I'd recommend teaming up with someone as some of the puzzles are rather difficult.

This is the most interesting fangame I've ever played.

Ratings for 100%. I agree with Bob's review (Especially the part about the secret hunting / puzzle solving) almost in full- except I found the area needing all four arrow keys to be quite fun and felt good (though I can imagine it would be a pain for controller players, yeah)

A bit of a weirdo game, but god damn is the quality good. The gimmicks are absolutely fantastic, some of the most creative stuff I've ever seen in any fangame and executed really well. After being amazed by the plunger stage, I thought that that was it, but nope, the gravitylands with the 3D insanity was sick. Of course, the skateboard was also great, most satisfying to pull off out of the 3 imo. I will say that I found the constantly changing gravity combined with vines to be really confusing in an annoying way, but it wasn't anything that bad.
One thing I did find bad were the bosses, which were just really tedious due to them being significantly easier than the platforming sections yet also being longer. I beat the crab first try and the tack shooter took me quite a few because I would die at some random death and then have to slowly kill him again. It's just boring. They could work for an easier game, but they're out of place here.
As for secrets, I was able to do some, but searching for the moles was more frustrating than interesting. Maybe I missed it somewhere, but the minesweeper section desperately needed some tutorial. I have played hundreds of hours of minesweeper in other games and I would have never guessed it was that. I'm not a big fan of riddle puzzles in general, so this type of secret hunting wasn't for me, so, keep that in mind.
Overall, very good fangame with somewhat lacking bosses that are more than made up for by the amazing gimmicks.
