🙂 does Balans Wonderworld have its flaws "yesss". However did it have alot of potential had the game been delayed for several months to fix the core gameplay completely reworking it. "Yess". Thing is Balans Wonderworld is trying hard to be a good game but fails in its core gameplay and controls. I've always strongly felt that the studio that worked on the game focused way too much on the cinematics and music (which are also important) and didnt quite focus their attention on the gameplay. Having every button do the exact same thing was a waste when you have so many other buttons that can be used for different things like eg. Idk "jumping" lol. Rather then take away the players ability to jump for some costumes why not just register a jump button. Not only that but I remember in a previous review that some costumes make the older ones completely obsolete like that one where you can swim underwater. If you get the 2nd underwater one you can now leave the water whenever you want. Like dudeskis that makes the first one practically not worth it to use.

You really didn't have to make a 32 minute video about this. You can just say 'No, this game is a broken, stupid mess" and we would understand wholeheartedly lol

with Chapter 6 (the girl and the kitten)
the boss intro cutscene actually has suddle clues that shows that the cat was never run over in the first place (car stopping sound, the clock was already going backwards, the stoplight had all lights on & the cat was sitting still)
Cass Milligan (the girl) took the wrong picture and at the end she went back to the place to memorialize her kitten, only to discover that her kitten was never run over

regarding Lance, his name is a play in combination with Balan
Balan-Lance, BaLance, balance & you find out a bit more about him after the final boss
speaking, the final cutscenes are totally worth it, as it is very emotional

the Tims are there to unlock the final costume, they represent positive feelings & they can bring you both gems, keys & eggs in the Acts & they can attack enemies (i even had a Tim defeat a enemy)

the costumes, look at the names Guardian Bird, it is a protector so it can attack, Air Cat of course it would walk in the air

i had fun with the platforming, in later levels it is a legit challenge & some costumes (Double Jumper, Frost Fairy, Triple Jumper, MoonWalker, Air Unicorn) all make the platforming so much easier
i would give the game a 8/10

There have been so many iconic game devs who have garnered something of a following over the years and, having the opportunity to exert more control over a game in the present, completely botch it.

Mighty Number 9, Devil's Third (lol), and now Balan Wonderworld were all made by esteemed game directors who completely fucked up projects they more directly oversaw. Just goes to show how nuanced game development is and how it isn't always right to attribute all of a game success to a single person.

Considering how much effort was put into the cutscenes I could see a patch that’s just like
– Reduced compression of pre-rendered cutscenes
and nothing else is changed.

I liked the demo and wanna buy the full game just to prove ya'll wrong on calling it bad (partly because, story of my life, if I like something, everyone else hates it, and vica verca). But hot dangit that price tag, no way, waiting for a sale! And that's not just for this game, I'm not buying any game at that price.
