XIFT is probably one of my favourite needle games of all time. The style is trippy, but its unique and doesn't just throw messy shades of colours at you. The needle is some of the most unique I have seen and was generally the most fun I have had playing needle in a long time. I would of given it a perfect 10 but some jumps and screens were just really annoying so I couldn't get myself to do it. Overall if you want a very unique needle experience, this is the game to play.

Really well made needle game that is both aesthetically pleasing and creatively challenging. You will find lots of interesting jumps through this 50 floor journey, but some jumps do feel more annoying than amusing, especially in the last two stages. The entire game is set in a hallucination and this aspect is intervened with the graphics cleverly. The soundtrack also is great and fits the game perfectly.
The minor gripes I have with the game are the weird design choices that seemed questionable, like the absence of visual savepoints and the fact that there is no death and time counter. These are really small and petty issues in a game chock full of amazing content. Would definitely recommend if you like needle.

Okay it just dawned on me that I somehow didn't review this game at some point. I went and did another playthrough just to make sure everything I planned on saying in this review was accurate. To cut to the chase, XIFT is, in my opinion, one of the best fangames ever made, if not THE best. Everything about this game screams style in their own regards, but when put together forms an incredibly unique experience that anyone into needle should play at some point. For the majority of the game, you traverse through abstract hazardous shapes, rather than generic spikes most needle games use. The creative "spike art" in this game are complimented extremely well by the equally alien soundtrack and visual style. The visual style as well as music changes every act, but still feels unified. This release feels largely similar to the previous version of the game that came bundled with Holocene Juveniliax, but improves a couple of screens by making jumps feel slightly less tedious or precise. The only change between this release and the original version that I do not like is the different song in Act 3. The new song is fine, but doesn't really feel like it fits the game as well as the original song. I can understand why it was changed, as the original song had a bit of loud static at one point in the song which startled a lot of players. That said, I personally think the replacement song could've been better. Aside from that my only complaint is that a couple of jumps, especially in the latter half of the game, feel a bit out of place in terms of difficulty/precision. There are two jumps in particular that come to mind in the penultimate stage with a fairly precise and slightly annoying final jump.

With those minor flaws in mind, this game is about as close to perfect as a needle game can get. If you play needle and haven't given this one a try, you're doing yourself a disservice.
