The start of the game looks like generic shit, but underneath the shitty entry area there is a great game. You have 2 paths to beat that can be done in any order. Each path contains a mini boss and a real boss. The real bosses in this game are amazing and some of my favorite bosses in any fangame to the point where they justify you playing it.

Once the 2 paths are beat, you get access to one of the most iconic VVVVVV stages in any fangame. It culminates in an epic multiphase boss fight against Vridian and Vermillion that you will never forget.

A final path opens up that has some fairly tricky platforming at times, and a lot of traps mixed in. At the end you are rewarded with 2 more boss fights, the final one again being very memorable.

This is one of the old iconic fangames that everyone should really play.

I feel as if when it comes to absolute fundamental design for an adventure game, Diverse is the perfect example of what works, at least for me. The traps are pretty well placed, and they aren't too basic while not being super elaborate, it's just a little flavor I'd say, and the stages are good, introducing simple but fun mechanics and capping each off with a boss, and this game has really good bosses in my opinion, fun attacks, unique mechanics, everything that makes a boss good in my opinion is present in these bosses. It's a shame it never got finished, although the current final boss is definitely one of my favorite fangame bosses, it's just really cool and has a nostalgia factor since I first saw it as like a 12-13 year old. Really fun game in my opinion, I think it's aged gracefully.

This game is on drugs and I'm thankful for it.

As the majority have said, it purposefully opens as generic copy-paste trash and, as you keep progressing with fear, you find out that a solid adventure game lies hidden beneath. The good platforming is definitely ruined by the unspeakably bad traps placed throughout, which harm the game a huge deal, being very hard to trigger once you spot them out and funny just 10% of the times.

However, at the middle and end of each stage, you find a mini-boss and a boss, respectively. Save for one mini-boss, all of them are creative bliss and pump you up, no questions asked. Once the game becomes linear, you stumble upon the greatest VVVVVV stage ever in a fangame (yes, this includes Marathon) and a Viridian/Vermillion fight which epicness will scar you for life. The quality of the fight almost reaches that of the Boshy fights (even if most of the sounds, attacks and ideas are taken, ironically, from the Council Member Boshy fight in Kill The Guy).

The game is particularly hard, certainly harder than what the average suggests, hands down. I wouldn't mind comparing it to the first HeavenTrap in terms of boss-suffering and trap torture. Nevertheless, the solid department is the development of the bosses, and the last stage brings along some unforgettable, trippy, suspenseful dimension-travelling that, heck, could be even subject to debate regarding its meaning! Yeah, I know; nobody looks for a plot in a fangame, but the trip was certainly acid and I freaking loved it. Remove the godawful traps and you would have something even greater.

For being an old-school classic, it surely served as a bridge between the old and the new in the fangame universe, and that is appreciated. Recommended.
