An absolutely gorgeous needle game full of interesting jumps and cool effects. Probably the prettiest tileset I've ever seen, but manages to balance the visual clutter just enough for it to be perfectly playable as well. I honestly loved basically everything about this game, from the animations to the sound effects to the way the aesthetic is so perfectly synced with the music. Highly recommended to any fans of needle.

My only real complaint is that it's not longer.

Edit: I have since learned that an avoidance is unlocked if you beat the game in under 30 min - both the difficulty of achieving this and the difficulty of the avoidance are vastly different from the core platforming, and I don't think I'm really qualified to judge either.

Cool needle game. Has some background effects that include a cool intro (You can still walk around while the intro is going on, although the effects might get on the way) that you can watch again whenever you want by pressing F2. Impressive visuals, cool music, perfectly fitting sound effects (Thanks for using a decent death sound), lots of interesting visual effects, some interesting jumps, some generic jumps, nothing particularly annoying.
The maker also warns the player about some stuff in the intro, including the fact that the game is a bit heavy on the effects, which might be bad if your computer isn't that good, and about the save protection thing, so that you don't have to find it out through the bad way.
It's a cool needle overall. Would recommend.

An amazing needle game with production value that is off the charts. The visuals are really unlike anything in any other fangame, and it shows the maker really gave a shit and put some serious effort into this game. Aside from the flashy visuals, the platforming is actually good. It's not stupidly hard, and the pacing is well done. The save and death effects are insane. The only beef is that you can't press R unless your character is dead, which can be annoying at times when you know you missed a jump and want to respawn instantly. Highly recommend this game to any needle player.

Based on needle part only :
Great effect and enjoyable needle game. What a pity that we have to finish the game under 30 minutes to unlock the avoidance part, which is totally impossible with my current skill level :(

WARNING: Bright colours and flashes! Do not play if you're sensitive to these. Also, the game uses save copy protection, so don't do anything with your save files unless you want to restart.
Rating/difficulty based on casual clear only - no 30 minute clear+avoidance!

This game is jam packed full of production value and is stunningly immersive. It's a really nice needle game with a bonus avoidance if you manage to clear it within 30 minutes. The game is pretty, the music gets stuck in my head for days, and the intro is really cool. I quickly adjusted to the screen tilt/rumble, however, there are several saves around the edge that become frustrating to grind due to said tilting.

The needle itself is really nice. It has a lot of variety, and utilises 16px-snap to create some unique jumps. The last few screens changed dramatically, with the creator focusing more on "bang-your-head-against-this-wall-50-times" maneuvers. As such, the number of saves on each screen increased from about 5 to almost 10 at some points, and I dropped off a heart from my rating. The difficulty curve was strange - more of a bellcurve really. It had some quite difficult saves (for me) in the middle, but got easier (and more boring) towards the end due to the jump types. Understanding how 32px and 16px aligns work makes the game easier in general.

Overall, my favourite needle game so far, and one that I highly recommend to anyone who isn't a complete beginner:

+Great needle for the bulk of the game
+Fantastic music, visuals, and effects
+Just the right length

~Very bright, with some (pleasant) visual clutter in the background
~I'm not sure what triggers this (possibly death count or playtime) but there are occasional voice-overs from a cute lady. I can't understand them but they gave me a fright each time.
~I'm not sure what triggers this (possibly being AFK for x minutes) but occasionally the music and visual effects go into a frenzy! Have to reboot game to stop it.

-Last few screens are very grindy with saves before and after almost every jump.
-The restart key doesn't work unless the player is dead.
