Color me (oh boy) impressed! This is a terrific experience for both veterans and players that have gotten used to the common engine that rules 98% of fangames and want a spike in challenge:

✓Red: Straight needle platforming. Creative and fun.
✓Orange: Choose your difficulty! Veterans will find themselves taking the shorter, yet harder routes! I tried them all and had a lot of fun succeeding.
✓Yellow: Kappa. Traps all over. Naturally, my least favorite segment, but I appreciated two things: a) They were not non-stop, and b) some triggers were odd. Not all of them kill you. It's just to scare you. Either it was intentional or bad platforming, but it seemed odd.
✓Green: Difficulty spiked up (oh my). There are no alternate routes here: this section is the filter for beginners. Fun as well and requires precise calculations.
✓Blue: Apple platforming. Average at best and sometimes annoying, but never frustrating.
✓Indigo: Japanese Kappa ("ding!") blocks. Was this the fangame that started them? Even if not, the idea is funny and serves as a different kind of trap segment that is not too bothersome.
✓Violet: Moving spikes. Calculate your timing of landing on ledges and read the spikes well. Dynamic and, again, fun.

As mentioned by the consensus, the game reaches its peak in experience if you get all secrets, because instead of getting a troll boss fight and a "Thank You For Playing" screen, you get the final area: a beautiful and iconic moment among the world of fangames. It's unforgettable. If the whole game had been of the quality of the final area, this would be among my favorites, but I still consider it great overall. The final boss is memorable, not as epic as I would've wished, but a nod to FFX is never something "overused". The attack of the hearts might frustrate some, but after 3 deaths to it, I caught the trick. An easy fight, but long enough.

Very recommended. This has a high replay value and, unlike several fangames, this showed commitment in its design. Instead of painting the entire screen of one color, and thus killing your eyes, the color scheme, shadow and rendering effects are gorgeous, and I love looking at basically any area.

P.S. I cannot reiterate how great the final section is after collecting all secrets. If you have played "I Wanna Get Cultured", you might have had that section spoiled, but its effect still remains once you play the original game. Thumb up.

This game is largely considered a classic of fangames, and has been a popular choice of speedruns for quite some time.

It is broken up into 7 stages, each with their own hidden area that contains 1 secret each. After collecting all secrets, you can access the "true" final area of the game, along with a boss. I highly recommend going for the true final ending of this fangame. Most certainly worth a play for any fangame player.

A comfy and varied needle game split into a variety of colours, each having own quirk or style. I see this as a fangame classic, and something with a lot of charm to it despite the relative simplicity it has. Would recommend to any fangame player.

Simple. Well Made. Endearing. (Except the bosses, but that's okay.)

It's recommended that you find the secrets, as the extra area is a treat.
