Needle (13) 100_Floor (10) x_Floor (1)

This is a pretty lengthy and solid needle game. 100 floors and a difficulty curve that doesn't make it painful until you are near the end.

Once you get up to around 75, the game really starts to change in a lot of ways. The difficulty starts to ramp up much more at this point, and you also unfortunately start to see way too many corner jumps shoved into the segment in the last dozen floors. I found this to be somewhat disappointing because for the first 3/4 of the game, the level design and platforming were interesting and not too generic.

The visuals though most of the game are pretty decent, they change every 5 floors along with new music which keeps the flow going at a good pace. There's a handful of stages where the visuals are just horrid, not enough to be a major problem, but there some moments where its very jarring. A few stages with black backgrounds make it hard to see the kids feet, and I think the game would have benefited with the option to toggle the kid's sprite like in Crimson Needle so on these stages you contrast better with the visuals.

The save points are shoot saves, but you need to be standing right on them for it to work. In most cases it's fine, but in some its very annoying because the saves are placed not close enough to the jumps. Standard saves with bullet blockers would alleviate some of the frustration in a few places.

It's a pretty good game with a lot of content, mostly good designs, and production value. It's worth playing if you like needle, but the direction of the latter part of the game made me glad it ended and maybe not soon enough.

Absolutely lovely 100 floor game. Well, 100 + a bunch of ?? floors. Anyway, this was a treat to play through. The balance was basically perfect; I never noticed any drastic bumps or dips in difficulty while playing. Some people did have issues with a few tilesets visually, but I thought they all looked nice. The only issues I had were that the windows ding would play upon death due to a coding error and that some of the save placement was iffy, requiring relatively long walks to the first jump many times. Also some of the music was mediocre, but that didn't really detract from the experience. Overall, this is a must-play.

Note: Unfortunately, the game is private (at least for now), but the creator has given permission for those with the game to distribute it, so ask around.

Very good and difficult 100f needle game. Great difficulty curve, great music, solid visuals for the most part(not a fan of 65-70's color choice), and good needle that stays fresh. My personal favorite floors are 71-75(Hades) and 41-45(Catharsis), as those floors had the style of the game the visuals were from. Highly recommend to skilled players.

Edit:Game got taken down because of some stuff. Sucks. I definitely recommend asking around for this game, it's pretty easy to nab.

This game is very well made and starts out at a nice forgiving difficulty. The game sorta really picks up at the last 20 floors though and produces some legitimately hard platforming. I felt relaxed the entire way through though and even through the sudden difficulty spike it felt completely chil the whole way through. I want more needle games like this one as I feel this represents what needle is all about to me. Being a relaxing experience and almost therapeutic while providing a decent challenge.

Floors 80+ were not the best and the last save was not fun. But ok I guess.
