Had high hopes for this one

Production is great, as always, and there were a couple (being literal here) good fights, but not much else I can give credit to personally.

Attempts to solve the reset for hp problem by making every fight unpleasant so you wouldn't want to do it over, as every fight either contains visual challenge or large quantities of nothing before a hard part. Capitalizes on the worst part of NAMTG being hiding information from the player through hidden doors and unknown stats and requirements for progression and makes it the entire game.

There is still some good content, and if you appreciate makers creating self-indulgent 'funnies' then you'll like this and I'd recommend it. However, if you like magic tower games, I'd be wary, it does everything I wouldn't want for a magic tower game and dials it up to the max.

If you make backup ofter then you shouldn't have any problem. If like me you don't then you will have to redo the game because the final boss will be hardly possible. Overall it was good and I had some good laughs at some genius moments, but it also has some moments that I swear I though I was about to go insane such as the black slime. Also I don't know if I'm stupid or not but I swear to have huged every wall in the first floor and only found 7/8 hidden doors.

A really fun magic tower game with some interesting sections and ideas that mess with the traditional magic tower formula. The only thing I really disliked was the focus on hidden doors (there are a few mandatory ones). Besides that, there were lots of funny jokes, fun fights, and great visuals/music. The game also gives you plenty of HP, so you can take some hits on a few of the less fun fights (fuck black slime, all my homies hate black slime).

This game is full of very creative ideas around the mechanics of NAMTG such as making the keys on the left information panel catchable, or the fact that one of the enemies is literally the green dot that indicates that an enemy can be defeated directly. However, it also has what I consider the worst aspects of the original NAMTG, such as the hidden doors or the back ups to avoid softlocking. Despite this, it was an entertaining experience and there are several moments that will make you laugh a lot.

This is one of the best fangame experiences I've had in a while. All of the twists, traps and trolls were both incredibly clever and hilarious, and I kept getting more and more amazed as I progressed through the game. In particular, shout-outs to the negative powerups, collecting the keys on the HUD and the damage powerup in the ghost fight

There are some elements that might be a bit rough if you go for no-hit, but such is never required at any point and does not detract from the overall experience of the game at all. In fact, I would personally consider it quite fun even if you do go for a no-hit run. The game is also quite short(for a magic tower game at least) - so it never ends up getting old or stale (although I would definitely love to see a full-sized Magic Tower game from this maker at some point).

Overall, highly recommended especially if you like wacky, chaotic stuff. And thank you very much for the wonderful Christmas present!
