General Commentary and Game Overview
At first when I looked screenshot, I thought that would have been a average game, but instead, it's a solid platformer with some neat twists here and there.
 
Pros + Solid engine, with few or no glitches
+ Custom graphics
+ Good music selection
+ Clever use of fan-made characters
 
Cons - Some typos here and there
- Short, about 8 stages long, considering the filesize.
 
Impressions
Gameplay
9 / 10
Just a standard Wario Land -type platformer, where you go around collecting coins, defeating enemies, and collecting pieces of medallion in order to access Morg Temple.

One thing that I like is the solid engine, which feels like a accomplishment for The Games Factory 2 game like this.

Rolling around, caught in the fire or bees, or just blowed around frozen solid, everything in this game is just top-notch.

One thing that I dislike that there is some spelling typos here and there, but you have to remember, the author of this game comes from Norway, so his english is not that perfect.
 
Graphics
8 / 10
Not a professional-quality, but they fit the game very well.

Custom sprites are rarity in fan-games, but this makes them stand out.
 
Sound
9 / 10
I kinda like music selection and the sound effects, because they kinda fit the theme in this game.
 
Replay
7 / 10
Considering about this game's length, it is only 8 stages long, so you may become bored after when you played through second time.

More stages would have helped to increase replay value, but because it's that short, I gave 7/10.
 
Final Words
9 / 10
Even though it is fairly short, it is still worth your time to check this out.
