This game's got some really interesting needle, design-wise and visually, with a very cool atmosphere that's inspired by fangames from dopamine, Derf and Hiddow.
My rating for this so far is only based on the main game (excludes extra avoidance since I haven't beaten it yet).

This game consists of an intro stage, 4 stages from which you can pick the order, a final stage that gets unlocked once you beat the 4 other stages and an extra avoidance.

I personally enjoyed Syfactor's Venereal Cessation Stage the most since it had some neat jumps and its atmosphere and visuals felt very nice to go through. The symmetry also was a nice touch.

Zorgo's Distortion Stage would be my second place for the same reasons (except no symmetry) but it's second because it also had a few jumps that were kinda irritating like a forced 2 frame (at least I think it was) somewhere on the second to last screen.

Nogard's Flesh Stage was also pretty good and it used Catharsis water (no extra jumps, you just fall slower), which created some cool platforming. Though it also had a few annoying jumps, but I might be biased for that since I just don't like platform jumps that much. Still a good stage.

Then there's Zorgo's Separation Stage, which looked really awesome and was also fun to do but it also had some of the hardest and most annoying saves in the game. It wasn't even always his fault for them being like that because there's a vine bug which sometimes just doesn't let you jump off of vines on the right side. That's rather an engine issue though since I've seen it happen in other games as well.
That being said, surprisingly this area also contained my favorite save in this game: the 3rd save of screen 2.
That save was so incredibly satisfying to pull off for me and I can't even quite explain why. At first, the vine jump for that seemed to be a bit annoying but once I figured out there is a strategy for it where you just have to hold jump and BOTH the right and left key at the same time from a certain position it became a really fun jump. The rest of the save was also very well designed and I can't complain about it in the slightest.

And finally the final stage, Mr. Wonderful's Satisfaction Stage. Also a good stage even if I normally don't like platform jumps that much but I think they were mostly pulled off well, except for the third screen where it was a bit irritating to get used to the muscle memory of the platform jumps.

The order of these was supposed to represent my ranking at first but now after thinking about it some more, I'm not too sure which ones I like more or less for the last 3 stages I wrote about. lol
<- (this spoiler tag contains a lot of information and personal opinions about the game's stages)

All in all, it's a nice collab game that I would recommend experienced fangamers to play. :)

Welp, this game definitely was a journey.

It's a needle medley game inspired by I wanna medley the Idiot's Game consisting of one stage (8 games, with 2 screens each) and it tries to focus on "grid needle" and what you can do with it. At times it can be kinda questionable in design but it also had some creative ideas that I haven't seen in any other fangame really, like for example the gate simulator screen from Save Shitai that keeps adding small gimmicks every few gate jumps you do.
For me personally, it was mostly fun to play.
Though be warned that the last screen, which is the second Justice screen, is way harder than the rest of the game and it can be quite a grind. It isn't necessarily bad but its difficulty is definitely out of place.

So I would suggest you give it a shot anyways and just stop on the last screen IF you think you really don't wanna grind that out since the screens before are (maybe with the exception of one other screen) an experience that I do recommend.

The song for the stage is very catchy but considering that it's just that one song for all screens, I'll give the music aspect of it only a 9/10 for its repetitivity. :smiley_face:
The visuals yet simple are very clean and nice looking remade versions of the original sprites (even if the changes are just very slight sometimes).

The last thing I wanna talk about is the clear screen since it technically also is an extra needle screen in a different, even more generic and also kinda cancerous style that doesn't even give you anything for beating it. (Shoutouts to DestructorTheDestroyer for beating that for me to check btw.)
You just end up in a different part of the same clear screen that is basically just a hole. But I guess don't take this part too seriously since it's probably just a meme.



I hope this review was kinda helpful and you might consider playing the game or stay away from it if it doesn't seem like the kind of game you wanna play. But hey, trying doesn't hurt. ;)

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.

This is perfection in form of a game and should be played blindly!
It also helped me gitting gud at needle games. (This was my 2nd fangame.)

I wouldn't have played Portal or watched Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt if I hadn't beaten this game. So thanks to you, Geezer.
