A medium length adventure game with a touhou theme. There are 5 stages you can do in any order and a final stage after that. The soundtrack is touhou music and the backgrounds are (mostly) touhou places remade in minecraft, which I thought was pretty cute.

The main gimmick of the game is dodging various projectiles while doing easy needle. Most of the time I absolutely despise gameplay like that, but not in this case. The rng parts never felt too unfair other than two saves in the final stage. There are a few dumb 'thing flies at you' traps in some saves, but it was bearable for me. It also has to be said that my experience may not have been so nice if I wasn't so into touhou.

The first five bosses aren't too hard, only real problems I had were with Byakuren's curvy laser spellcard not giving enough time to react to lasers coming from below, and Youmu's final generating walls.

The final boss is harder than the rest of the game combined imo, and the fight is more than 4 minutes long. The attacks are creative and engaging. I personally am really fond of the character chosen as final boss as well as their theme, so once again, other players might get more pissed off/bored than I did. Also the fight uses infinitejump, so that could also be a problem for some players.

I would recommend this to people who like touhou and old adventure games(it feels like one of those).
Keep in mind that if you don't care about touhou or the final boss character, your experience will be way worse than mine. (I realize I said this multiple times, I really mean it xD)

A 13 screen needle game consisting of regular needle, some vines and also water, doublejump water and catharsis water. Some screens have gravity flipping as well, but not too much.

The visuals are good imo and while the music felt out of place at first, it became very fitting and good once the game started getting hard. The music gave the game an eerie atmosphere similar to that of catharsis, and this really upped my overall experience and made the grindy saves tolerable.

As for the needle design, it starts off not too spectacular or special but some of the later screens are very well designed imo, screen 10 11 and 12 are among my favourite fangame screens of all time. Screen 12 especially really caught me off guard with the outstanding design, and I also enjoyed playing it despite usually hating gravity switching. The last screen has an interesting concept and is also pretty fun on the current version, and is not that hard.

What many would find problematic in this game is the volatile difficulty balance, but I think it should be bearable after all the nerfs. Don't expect the initial easy part to last long.

I would only recommend this to experienced needle players who are able to overlook the difficulty curve not being smooth and are also able to avoid getting pissed off by some grindier saves.
If you are like me though you will enjoy this game a ton even with its flaws.

Oh, and before I forget, try to not move after entering the second warp on screen 5 to avoid a transition death. It's the one with the vines at the top right and the warp inside a shuriken with a platform below it.

Last thing: If we overlook the testing problem, this is a very amazing first fangame imo.

FTFA like game with 4 single save screens, standard visuals and no music.
There is an easy mode with additional saves, but my rating is based on hard.

Compared to other FTFA-likes, this game uses usual generic jumps a bit too much, with not enough interesting precise jumps. Also screen 2 is a lot harder than the others, mostly because of the jump in the middle of the screen. Screen 3 and 4 especially are way too easy in my opinion, after what you had to go through at least. My favorite part was the ending of screen 2.

Playing screen 2 felt like FTFA, the others felt like a random generic needle game, so I'd recommend playing this only if you're done with the other FTFA-likes and want more.
Not saying this is bad, it just doesn't really compare to games like Nightmare, Lap around or FTFA.

1 screen of generic needle with resolution resetting. Second save is way harder than the rest.

Recommended only if you want to add to your clear list.

I always liked the archfoe series, and this game does a great job of imitating its style, not only in the visuals or music choice, but also the level design(which is better here than in the archfoes imo).

Saves of this length are perfect for me, I love never feeling nervous about choking at the end of a long save, while also not repeatedly jumping into the same spike like in an L game. There are also a good number of scary/hard looking jumps, which usually turn out not to be so bad. I just love when after looking at the next jump, I'm like: WHAT IS THAT?

The problem with the game is the same one I usually have with archfoe games:
Getting stuck on a save can hurt my eyes after a while. Still being able to see spinchters with my eyes closed is kind of funny, but also a bit unpleasant.
Also, while I don't think 1 frames or JCs are necessary, some saves would be rather painful with 2 frames.

I would highly recommend this to people who liked the archfoe games, or like hard needle, and are able to jump cancel (or 1 frame) mid-air decently well.
