This is a 30 floor game, with just one save per screen. As such, the difficulties - Medium, Hard, and Very Hard - do not alter the save placement, but rather the needle design itself. My ratings are based on playing Very Hard, though Hard is the creator's recommended difficulty.

Do not play this game on Very Hard. It acts as an excellent argument against fangames including multiple distinct difficulty modes, because all Very Hard does is buff the existing platforming in obnoxious ways without any consideration for how these buffs impact the overall flow of a save. More specifically, it features drop gates, T-bones, sideways gates, and 16px gaps strewn haphazardly across minute-long saves, resulting in many floors becoming what I can only describe as a "choke nightmare." At the same time, the buffing isn't even really that consistent, so there were a few floors I beat on my first try despite spending 10-15 minutes on the previous one...

Hard mode seems to be a pretty smooth experience, so just play that if you're interested in this game. I assume the other reviews on here are based on Hard mode.

The boss at the end is based on SaGa Frontier and is trivial if you know Japanese, as it announces each attack in advance at the top of the screen. If you don't know Japanese, I guess you should learn it.

The needle feels really good, though I can't really put my finger on it. It consists of single screen saves that balance well between being never boring and never grindy.

The boss is kind of tedious but its not really the reason to play the game, though its at least creative.

One of the best needle games I have played in a LONG time. Not only is it really fun to play, but it looks just as good, if not better. Final boss in my opinion is very insta gibby but it doesn't take away from the needle in anyway. If you like needle, you HAVE to play this. So underrated.

A typical platform-then-boss adventure game that is reminiscent of Sheep 100-style platforming. The platforming in the game is well done and has a smooth difficulty curve as the player progresses. The final boss, on the other hand, could use a little work. While the concept of the boss is nothing new, some of the attacks are insta-gib until the player learns them. Overall, this is a game that I would recommend to anyone looking for an adventure game.

A very nice set of Sheep100/QoQoQo needle, then a really neat final boss. Definitely one to try out if you're looking for a -bit- of a challenge.
