This is a very, very long fangame (200 Floors + 10 Secrets + Flipped 200 Floors + Flipped 10 Secrets + Hidden Achievements + 3 Extra Stages) that is inspired by NANG. It has achievements, several gimmicks and secrets and also a story. It's not entirely a needle game since there are some bosses and avoidances in the game.
The music choices were decent with songs that were alright to songs which I immediately added to my playlist.
The graphics were also pretty good even though some stages had background movement which may or may not be distracting.
I enjoyed the majority of all screens and can't really recall any screens I didn't like at all. However, I noticed that there were quite a lot of 16px gaps in the game, which isn't the best thing but it's also not too bad. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
All of the gimmicks were pretty enjoyable, the creator had some interesting ideas. Stage 7's gimmick was probably my favorite one. (It also had the most fitting song imo.)
The avoidance in Stage 9 is kinda similar to NANG's but it is way more repetitive because it's really just like a long version of the first phase of NANG's. The bosses were alright though, really liked the extra boss.
Another good decision the creator made was that you can go back to every room with the Up and Down Arrow after you get the True Ending. This made it pleasant to look for hidden achievements. :d
And then there's the story. Normally IWBTG Fangames don't have a real story so it surprised me that it even existed in the first place. The story kept my desire for progress going. I just wanted to know what happens next. The story was pretty impressive. I also had to laugh a few times about some of the jokes or the meta-humor.
Oh, also there's some MLP stuff in it.

PS: The touch saves do remember your align and you can change the controls if you feel like E isn't a good "Use" key.

Inspired by NANG, NAFG is a massive game featuring a 200 room tower of needle gameplay with gimmicks woven into various stages. There's a lot to love and hate about this game, but despite some of it's very serious flaws, this is a game veteran players may enjoy tackling.

The Good:

A massive amount of content featuring 200 rooms, plus secrets, plus the upside-down with secrets. There are also some really neat gimmick that add a layer of puzzling in some of the stages which are really well done. There is a story and a bit of humor mixed in where the game makes fun of itself at times. This game took me over 20 hours to clear, not counting the extra content which is partly in this version but still being added upon.


The bad:

Touch saves in 2017. I know NANG did it, but it's not a good idea. Aside from this I don't think the saves remember your aligns. For a game with a lot of needle this is very annoying. The needle itself is OK, but nothing super amazing. Way too many 16 px gaps through the entire game, and a ton of diagonal / corner crap. The secrets are mandatory for even the bad end, and the portal secret in particular is almost game ruining in how out of balance and terribly designed it is. The visuals on some of the stages can be annoying. Extra unlock requires getting achievements that are somewhat cryptic. The use of the "E" key is clumsy and it gets used a lot, could have just used down arrow to fall through floors instead like NANG.

Despite the negatives, I sunk a massive amount of time into this game. I respect a lot of what the creator did with this game. It's not as well made as NANG, but it's a very lengthy and challenging game with some very annoying design decisions. If you can get past those, veteran fangame players may like this game, but it's not for everyone.
