Started this hack last night after recently completing GPW2. I'm 5 exits in, so far I'm really enjoying the flow and style of this hack. It's a breath of fresh air to be playing a more chill hack after the GPW2 grind. Hope to see more in the future!
I had a blast. This was excellent in nearly all regards: 5/5. I have only two minor complaints. One is Reznor, which you seem to know about already. The second one is this...
At some point in the Wrecking Boo level, you stand on top of a coin block you hit earlier and above that coin block is a yellow turn block. The fastest way to get on top of the coin block is to hold jump and *run off* the ? platform right before it. This breaks the setup because the ? doesn't disappear when you run off it and the boo eventually bounces off it. But it's hard for the player to realize they're breaking the setup by doing it this fast way (I spent 20+ minutes wondering why the boo didn't do what it was supposed to). It would be better if something forced the player to jump rather than run off that question block. Again, I don't think this is a big deal, just something you might want to update if you're doing a v1.3.
Loved this hack. It's fast-paced and fun, with clever, original setups and obstacles. Most of the game is very intuitive, with great flow. My only complaint is the any% boss, which felt really awkward and janky. I feel like this hack would be a great bridge for players looking to move from easier hacks like Quickie World to intermediate ones like Akogare. Highly recommended, hope to see more from FRX in the future.
One of the best easy hacks I've played. Doesn't fall into the easier hack "stickiness" (no flow to obstacles, just one after another with no cohesion). The flow will definitely help a beginner get tuned up for intermediate and advanced hacks. Excellent hack, great work.
I created an account so I could say how much I enjoyed this hack. I liked all the 1.2 changes, specifically the fixes/changes in Wrecking Boo, Toblerone, and Afterglow. Excited to see what you come up with next.
