It is a good restoration of the ancient classic games and reminds me of my childhood

Wonderful homage to yoyo's adventure games
Lots of real old-school adventure platforming that stays at a very relaxed difficulty. Great time all around

Rating based on no secret-hunting or extra content.

The game is generally good, with solid but uninspired platforming and the usual flying-spike traps. The bosses range from meh to good, though don't go in expecting anything grand in scale. The final boss is rather bullshit, but not too hard if you get good RNG. Unfortunately, its difficulty peaks right at the end, which could become tedious and frustrating if you're grinding it for a long time.

Pretty cool game that aims to somewhat be a recreation of I wanna be the Salt, but with better overall level design and more interesting bosses. Most of the saves were not too interesting, but they were fun enough to just be a chill time. Aside from one save that starts with a floorgate, the platforming was smooth and quite enjoyable.
Secrets are overall more obvious than in salt, but some are still very hidden to a point where it feels somewhat unreasonable to find them all without help, which is an issue since you need them all to access the final stage and boss. Special credit should go to final avoidance which was super enjoyable and just super well made.

A cool fangame made for FAST that emulates I wanna be the Salt, attempting to have a classic style feel with a few parts having a modern edge. The formula is the same: a hub with 2 paths, each with 3 stages. The stages have basic platforming and traps as well as basic and short bosses. The difficulty is significantly higher than Salt although it typically doesn't get crazy hard with maybe few exceptions in the secret/extra areas. While I did find some of the secrets and extras (namely the invisible buttons you have to shoot, the needle-heavy secret area, and the long as hell needle save before the extra/true final boss) to be questionable, I think this is overall a solid easy-going adventure game that I would recommend to anyone who likes old-style games, short games, or Yoyo's games.
