While the game had cool ideas, it really lacked in the execution. The individual jumps are neat in theory, but as the game goes, actually doing the jumps become more and more of a chore. This wasn't so much of a problem until the last screen, when the game just kind of went to shit. The first save involves a vstring-dependent, frame-perfect turnaround onto a vine, which only accounts for a third of the first jump, and an overly-precise sort-of F jump that ended up making the save a huge difficulty spike in the game. The second and third saves were completely free in comparison and combined took me a fraction of the time it took to beat the first save. Then the ideas just went out the window and the maker resulted to boring corridor needle in the last two saves of the screen. The last save starts with a double diamond into a 16-pixel, followed by a jump that actually has a neat idea to it but is not easy to execute; what's the point of the double diamond at all? It's just there to prolong your playtime because despite the fact that it's not a hard jump, you'll still die to it a few times before getting an attempt at the one jump that matters.

The maker clearly focused too much on making interesting and hard needle and paid little attention to its fun factor; next time, try not to make it play terribly. Wouldn't recommend.
