Rating based on bad end clear, though planning on going back for the extra content which seems to be around 60-65 difficulty.

After a few weeks of feeling unmotivated to play fangames I heard a new adventure game released and gave it a try, and all I've played so far of this game has completely won me over.

It's an easy-going adventure split into stages you can tackle in any order, each one with a different theme to it. All stages look great and feel great to play, with secrets sprinkled through the stages that serve as a sort of progression system. Each save is varied and has a clear idea behind it, and there's no sense that this game has any bloat to it.

How the game presents itself is great too, having a charming little story to go along with the levels that never overstays it's welcome.

A couple of nitpicks I have with the game is that while you can tackle the stages any order they are meant to be played in order, so if you skip ahead you can end up finding mechanics that still haven't been properly explained to you. All the gimmicks are intuitive enough for it to not be a problem though.
Also, the space station has a block puzzle that breaks the flow of the stage a bit. EDIT: On playing it a bit more it does have a secret behind it. whoooops

Seeing adventure games that don't seem to hate you for playing them like this and with such great fun presentation still come out nowadays is always a joy.

Also, I genuinely spent 30 minutes chilling on the title screen, so there's that.

A fairly beefy adventure game with high production-value. I really enjoyed most of it, aside from a couple saves in the later stages; I also liked the simple story and think it's a nice inclusion. One gripe is that the final boss's blue bullets blended in a fair bit with the background tiling, which made one attack harder than it needed to be, and a couple parts had inverted controls due to the screen flipping, which I just don't enjoy.

Would definitely recommend checking it out.

Rating based on bad end clear + all secret.
This game is really fun, the creator just made for fun and not "just hard". Almost everything in this game is fun and the gimmick went very well. Also the secret is easy to find except the VVVVVV stage.

Good job Asza!

Solid adventure game that ends up feeling pretty varied. I found it a bit odd that you only had to clear a few of the stages on offer if you collected enough secrets, though i suppose it is nice to be able to choose what you want to do.
The final stage felt a bit too random going from a medley of the previous stages to a mario inspired level to a boss that seems to have nothing to do with either of those.
Overall i did enjoy the experience even though the design felt odd to me at times.
