Weave Through the Witch's Needle is a 30-screen needle game of 5 stages, based mainly around vines, platforms and water. I designed the needle to be fairly challenging, although hopefully accessible early on so that inexperienced players can make a start. I attempted to make each stage feel different with the visuals and music as well as slight changes in the needle style, which left me pleased with the result.

Whilst I did aim for a reasonable difficulty curve, I feel that Stage 3 was noticeably more difficult that the previous platforming. I was also a little unsure on the length of the final stage, and feel it may have overstayed its welcome. Regardless, I felt like I achieved the 'finale' feel that I was going for.

I was ultimately happy with the end result and had a real fun time making it. I hope you enjoy it!

Somewhat lengthy needle game. While its design is interesting, and most screens are individually fun, the game introduces everything it has to offer right at the beginning, in the first few screens, pretty much killing the purpose of every stage in the game but the first one. Some jumps are recycled over and over (Almost every screen in the game has at least one of those platforms with a sideways spike on top of it), the usually fun combination of single jump and double jump water, vines and platforms gets stale after displaying everything these gimmicks have to offer, and the game just keeps going on, and on, and on, with very few novelties sprinkled around the other stages (Every 10 screens or so).
Just to reiterate, the platforming itself is actually good. The jumps are interesting, the gimmick usage is great, the visuals are nice and so are the musics. It's just that the game lasts for much longer than it should, and as a result it ends up getting repetitive (And it gets repetitive really quickly). There's no harm in trying this game out if you really want to, since it's not exactly bad, but I would strongly recommend its sequel (Witch's Tower) over it, since Witch's Tower does a much better job at justifying its length, while covering everything this game has to offer and much more.

Here's a great needle game from a new game maker. Right out of the gate, you can tell the maker understands needle and what makes it interesting and what to do. The game is broken into 5 stages of increasing difficulty (30 or so rooms total). The level designs and jumps are pretty creative and use vines, platforms, and water to create some really interesting and ass-clenching segments. The music through the entire game is pretty good. I didn't care for some of the spike coloring in a few places where the background doesn't create enough of a contrast for my liking, but aside from that and a few segments that have difficulty spikes, this is a great needle game.

the platforming is very unique but all screens looked like they were made in jtool since it seems to force itself to contain a variety of the standard gimmicks in each stage and as a result, a lot of the gimmicks (eg vines, double jump water) felt out of place. due to this, every stage felt the same and the only difference is the difficulty. some screens also display the style of many 100-floor games where the whole screen is filled with blocks and spikes just for the sake of using up the empty space. just... why? overall, there is just too much stuff being presented at the same time that gives the feeling of incompleteness.

The witches needle is a game with 5 stages each of which has its own theme and a slight difficulty curve. The needle itself is varied and open and most jumps flow well into one another creating a real sense of progress. Aesthetically pleasing tile set makes this game easy enough to digest that I cant imagine most people won't beat this in one sitting. If you're newer to fangames this would be perfect to get a firm grasp on some concepts like how platforms work and why different types of water can be used without feeling cheated. Its a clean well crafted game. I'd highly recommend it.

Wolfi's needle has a really fun style which, when combined with nice tile sets and chill music, has led to the creation of an excellent needle game.
