This game was actually a ton of fun. I just wish it had a bit more production value and was not so short. Gameplay wise though, it's pretty damn good. It took me about 7 hours in total to beat.

What I find interesting about this game's challenges is that they are all about precision. You need to work hard in order to gain the muscle memory and improve your consistency with these frame perfect jumps. Thankfully there are also plenty of visual cues that will help you do these challenging jumps correctly. Knowing exactly where to stand/jump can be incredibly useful.

Now the first screen is not nearly as bad as it seems at first. After a bit of time, I was able to make it past the super F at least every 5 minutes or so. Every attempt past the super F should pretty much make it to the last plane jump. From there, it's just hoping you can focus and do the plane jump properly and move on to the second screen.

The second screen is about the same difficulty of the first screen, but just a bit harder. There's this tricky jump at the top that requires a 5 frame, full-jump and then I believe a frame perfect hold right to get through the corner. Luckily you can get to this jump pretty consistently, and once you do it, it really is just a matter of getting through the nine jump after and completing the save.

The third screen is much more balanced with its difficulty, and it is slightly easier than screen two. All of the jumps are fairly easy and consistent except the ledge jump and the last jump. This screen can be done quite easily after some practice.

Okay now the last screen is where things get real. This screen took me longer than all of the other ones combined. However, it's a ton of fun. The last jump of this room is so much more precise than it looks, and I failed it 6 times in the actual game. And almost every other jump is pretty freaking hard as well. I still managed to greatly improve my consistency the more I played though. In the end, this room seems to become easier the more you play it. I'd say if you have the skill and patience to beat the first three screens, you can damn well beat the fourth one. Do not let this screen stop you from clearing the game!

Overall, I Wanna Fly the Far Away is an excellently well-designed challenge if you want to test your consistency with frame perfect and precise jumps.

What an incredible challenge this game was. When I first saw videos of Crimson Needle 2, I thought it was way too difficult to beat for my skill level. But I decided to man up and try anyway.

As a player who hasn't played very many fangames, I didn't feel all that confident trying to complete a 90+ difficulty game. However, I knew the challenge would be fun, rewarding and worth it. I became surprised by how quickly I was beating some of the later floors in the game, like 50-70. I realized that I can beat the entire game as long as I stay determined, and thankfully I did. This is by far the most rewarding fangame experience I've had.

As for when the game gets truly difficult, I actually did not really have any long grinds (3 hours or longer) until floor 98 and above, and that's what really surprised me the most. I thought I would start struggling to even get to floor 30.

The final boss is incredibly fun and not really as difficult as you might think. It may seem a little unreasonable at first, but after you come up with a good strategy, it's really not that bad. It took me 10 hours, which is not that long for a hard fangame boss. I'd say it is about as challenging as Kamilia 2's final boss.

And of course, what makes this needle game better than most is how it does not rely on spamming corners and diagonals to be difficult. There are a ton of really interesting, unique, challenging and fun jumps. Also, the visuals and music make the already good gameplay experience even better.

Overall, Crimson Needle 2 is my favourite fangame (for now at least) that is definitely worth playing.
