Not Another Needle Game
One of a few fangames ever made that would probably be worth paying money for, but it's free!
Each stage focuses on a single "cliche" among fangames. Whether it's the double-jump restore, pixel alignment, fitting the kid in a small safe spot next to a spike, or activating triggers, each stage has a small number of rooms that provide challenging puzzles without going overboard.
The graphics, while some might consider bland due to the absence of color, accentuate the plot that this Kid is some sort of test subject going through some sort of experiment. I think it makes things easier to see, and figuring out the jumps really boils down to a lot less trial and error of where to go, but rather timing the commands correctly.
The music is also fantastic, and the game does not overstay its welcome.
Great job, TheNewGeezer!
However, I didn't have much fun playing the game, or at least not as much as I appreciated its technical aspects. The teleporting/telejumping levels are really well thought-out, but they were a bit of a hassle to play through. The trials are lovely when you watch people clear them on stream, but they remain a bit frustrating for me. I'm not fond of gimmicks in general, though, so this might explain my "low" rating and feeling about the game, compared to other reviews. Make sure to try and finish it anyway, as it's a truly important fangame that I can recommend to everyone.
The best part is the game talking to you, though. It's so funny to see messages at the top of the screen such as...Nah, no spoilers. But some of them are really funny. Also, free align classes. Woohoo!
That being said, there are some annoying things in this game. Some screens give a vibe of "Why is this thing in the game?". I'm not even talking about the joke screens, I'm talking about poor design. Also, what nops said, many screens are only virtually good, and far from being actually enjoyable.
It's good and stuff, but I believe it's overrated, it's very far from being perfect. Would still recommend, though, it's not a bad experience to play through.
