Square is a short, easy-to-intermediate difficulty kaizo hack I made for beginners looking for something to play during their progression to more difficult kaizo hacks. While focusing on tight flowing platforming, I tried to prioritize fun over challenge wherever possible. I also sprinkled in a few trolls because trolls are always funny.
This game features custom music, custom palettes, some custom asm, one secret, and deep lore that will have you begging for a sequel.
Whether you're a new or experienced kaizo player, I hope you enjoy!

Solid hack. Some very creative jumps and fun platforming. I would put this solidly in "intermediate" category, not really easy or beginner, about Invictus or Akogare level.
The final castle is excellent; give yourself a hand. One level I didn't like was the wind level. I don't think you did a bad job on it necessarily; I just find the gimmick un-fun. I also would vastly prefer if you could see the wind.
The other one I hated was the double jump level, because it's jank as far as I can tell. Very small differences in movement lead to totally different spawns of the gray winged platforms, often guaranteeing death. Even after many attempts, I still couldn't get it consistent.
But aside from these complaints, like I said, this was a good effort with some awesome sections. I look forward to playing your next hack.
