Short 5 screen straight needle game with no gimmicks. Simple clean aesthetic and a decent, quite open style of jump design. Its enjoyable for the few minutes it lasts.

Its a solidly made math quiz game at probably the correct difficulty level (up to calculus) for someone considering becoming a math major with some fangame humor spread throughout.

Kid's a bum though if he can't get a job with a math degree, its not like its philosophy or literature or something.

For: Summer Feast Needle Bliss
It averages out to a decent needle game. However, that's only part of the story.

It contains stages from 5 makers, followed by a final tower made by Ghost as the organizer of the collab.

Infernoman and Wolfiexe's stages are great easier stages, mixing in some of their classic styles/visuals with a lot of platform-centric stuff. Both of these have nice clean aesthetics and flow great. Following this is Sunlaoqq's stage which also matches his style. This stage looks great but the block graphic doesn't seem to perfectly align with the actual hitbox which felt a little awkward. Gameplay wise, its a throwback to his standard - longer saves, loopy rooms, minimal gimmicks. Decent, but not exceptional.

After that the game really gets a lot harder - Lucien's stage has a lot of precise stuff but generally shorter saves with a lot of interesting water usage. Some saves were much harder than others and it felt a little off but for the most part was pretty fun.

FailJGuy's stage I hated. Felt like some mediocre trash from several years ago. Mostly 32px, tons of generic jumps (in fact, it seemed like it basically only went off 32px grid to jam in 16pixels, the best of all obstacles). There wasn't a single save that was positioned well for the first jump, save balance was awful, visuals were bland and much of the stage required precise setup jumps with a black background to make it more tedious to see your setups. This plus one other thing (detailed later) pretty near ruined the game.

Ghost's stage was neat. It was much easier than the previous stages with a weird style, and a layout reminiscent of the Don't Wanna Be A Gay tower from Cultured 1, featuring a long upwards climb with lots of empty space, highlighting the various community members along the way. Overall it was enjoyable - the needle wasn't really exciting but its a nice concept to showcase a lot of members from other communities I didn't know well. Ghost did a good job with production throughout, except for one thing.

In the original version, saving was problematic as it seemed to bug out and stick the player in the block. Thankfully this did in fact get fixed (though sadly I hadn't realized it before finishing). If you encounter this problem - make sure to redownload the update.

I'd say unless you're hard up for needle to play, do the first couple stages for a quick chill experience and then proceed until you find something you dislike. There's some pretty different styles here which can have mixed results.

For: I wanna KeyPick 100
(Review mentions extra, rating does not include it) An interesting one, for sure. This guy has demonstrated a penchant for puzzles and I'm a fan of that. Having played through the vast majority of Gaze though, I felt that the keypick stage was far and away the worst thing in the game so this intrigued me - either it was commitment to a mistake or a chance to redeem himself. In this case, it was the latter.

Unlike the keypick stage in Horizon, these puzzles are much more compacted and actually use some interesting and complicated concepts instead of 'how many doors and tedious timesinks can be jammed into a single screen'. In that regard, the design is much improved.

Unfortunately, instead, this game suffers from the classic 100 Floor syndrome though, seen in a lot of games of the genre. I would flag roughly about half of the floors completely meaningless and repetitive. The solution in these are either basically the exact same as a previous, with no interesting concepts and no real difficulty. Fortunately there's a number of good ones along the way, as he certainly adds a lot of depth to the concept compared to the horizon stage. Unfortunately it also suffers from a bit too much complexity jammed into a little door, and can frequently make it difficult to tell exactly whats going on. I imagine the in-game instructions help with that, but they are all in Japanese so be aware of that.

Overall its a good puzzle game - I wouldn't say ever gets very difficult though some rooms get long enough that they become tough to get through if you don't want to plan it out. The platforming is basically non-existent, and to some extent detracts from the game as there's a ton of walking back and forth in empty space just from one spot to another, frequently in layouts where its not optimized for convenient paths. Finally, there's a nice little boss at the end - very easy but serves as a nice finale for the game.

There is an extra that requires finding shiny keys. Some of these are okay, most of them are just stupid. There is a guide available [url="https://pastebin.com/X7Y0KqX7"]here[/url] if interested (credit to whoever posted it, it wasn't me). That said, extra is just a re-hash of the tedious Horizon stage, so not really worth the trouble.

I'd recommend this if you like puzzles and want to take it easy as you'll have a lot of time just walking back and forth to not stress yourself out. The puzzles do not get too difficult (much easier than Ponder or Horizon's), so it's probably a decent intermediary choice between something like Design or Solve Color Puzzle in the scope of Fangame puzzle games before the aforementioned harder ones.

For: I wanna go the Ocean Wetventure
The third game in Piece's reimagining of classic gimmick series, this time its all about the water.

It had a high standard to live up to, and from a design and production standpoint it definitely did. The level design is great, maintaining but improving the style of the traditional gimmick needle with weird interludes between them to add flavor. Visually, it continues to improve and there's a lot of nice polish and effects in this one.

That said, I probably had the least fun with this one. There are (as you'd imagine) many types of water and they're certainly designed around well, but the choices for the water gimmicks left a little bit to be desired for me. Whereas jungle/jumple both offered variations that let you do things you wouldn't normally do and allowing the player a sense of freedom and style (as these air-time based gimmicks are known to do), the choices here felt a lot more limiting. While they changed the way your approach obstacles and the inputs to overcome them in interesting ways, many of these water gimmicks felt like they limited the players ability rather than amplified it by removing or hindering control schemes.

Nonetheless, its still a really good gimmick needle game and worth a play if you liked the previous and like something a little spicier than regular needle. I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys gimmick needle as long but with the caveat that if you hate gimmicks like ice or conveyors and such that force the players movement in specific ways, to expect a bit of frustration with this. Also worth noting this is probably the easiest of the trilogy, which worked well, and given there isn't a necessity to doing them in any order is a perfectly viable starting point for the series.
