I enjoyed the first area and the water area; the rest I wasn't too much of a fan of. I tried doing the avoidances but quit on the orange avoidance; I did enjoy red though.

Rainbow Trap is a colourful game consisting of a variety of needle stages, each corresponding to a colour of the rainbow, accompanied with some extra content which I feel is absolutely worth doing and where the most enjoyable parts of the game came from.

Each stage consists of 10 screens of needle, usually based around a certain theme or gimmick although never getting too overly complicated or reliant on that sole gimmick. After completing the 10 screens, you're given a choice of a hard needle screen (in the same vein as that stage) or an avoidance. To unlock the final boss, you're required to beat both for all stages. The needle screens are fairly challenging but didn't feel like too much of a step-up in difficulty, but the avoidances were by far the highlights.

Each avoidance feels very different in design, my personal favourite being the green stage clock-style infinite-jump avoidance, although special shoutouts go to the cyan autoscroller-avoidance which was a lot of fun too. They all feel fairly equal in difficulty although the cyan one gave me more trouble due to the nature of it being a scrolling avoidance, and adjusting to the change in arena often gave me trouble. There's a bit of learning involved here and there, but nothing that's too overly precise or demanding.

If you decide to clear all the content, you'll be met with the true final boss. This boss is quite challenging although very enjoyable. It is designed in a way that you may choose to fight it with a set attack order or an RNG one. This lets you learn the attacks early on and decide if you want to go with the default set order or keep it random, which I opted for just because it felt more fun that way. There's some really neat visual things going on and it makes for a very intense conclusion by the time the final attack rolls around.

A fun game overall. To echo the rest of the review, I'd definitely recommend going for the all clear. The avoidances in particular were great and the final boss makes for a very intense finale.

DISCLAIMER: This review is needle only. No avoidances because I can only avoid stationary projectiles.
This is a really good needle game. My only complaints are some saves that feel unnecessarily precise, but these mostly occur during the "boss" needle rooms. These, and the final stage were the weakest parts of the game in my opinion. Overall, it's a high recommendation. Fun and difficult needle that's well worth playing. Hell, I even liked the water stage and water needle is usually DansGame
