Really fun! Like everyone else, I only wish there was more, but maybe being short and sweet works for a game like this.

Once again, arzztt shows that he really has a feel for designing enjoyable needle, creating fun-to-play designs both with and without gimmicks. I consider myself to be an intermediate player, and this was the perfect difficulty for me, with none of the segments bogging me down for too long, and most of the saves feeling just right.

The bosses are fairly simple and easy, but they're by no means bad. They do a good job of sprinkling in a little bit of the gimmick from their respective stages, and they serve as a nice change of pace from the platforming. Biggest boss complaint is probably that the final boss, while mixing in attacks/arenas from the previous bosses, didn't really incorporate any of the gimmicks.

The highlights for me were the two "maze" rooms, in the VVVVVV area and the final area. Again, the platforming was elegantly designed without being frustrating or overly difficult.

A very minor gripe: I feel like a game with this much design polish and production value deserves something better than the memey handwritten text and intentionally low-end clear rooms, but I understand that's just part of arttzz's style, so I'm not gonna dwell on it.

In a year with several very solid needle releases, this has probably been my favorite so far.

One of my favorite needle games for sure. I was a little nervous going into this one because the prequel, I Wanna Weave Through The Witch's Needle, was a bit of a grind for me, with a few segments that really got me stuck.

Witch's Tower improves on that game in just about every way, including flow and difficulty curve. The biggest improvement, though, is that it's just more fun. This game really nails that pleasing, fun-to-play feeling that good needle inspires.

Strong recommend for any fangame player.

First fangame review after many years of playing and watching them, just had to register to get my thoughts down.

The original I Wanna See The Moon is often recommended as a good intro fangame, and indeed it was my second clear. I always enjoyed the spirit of See The Moon, the exploration, picking up small powerups and keys to access new areas, backtracking to doors you saw before but couldn't get through. Truly, it was one of the original examples of what an adventure game is supposed to look like.

...that said, I never quite enjoyed it as much as others did. The game definitely feels old, rough around the edges, and poorly executed in places. The backtracking is awkward and unnecessarily repetitious, and the production is basic. It's absolutely worth playing, but it shows its age.

Denferok's successor, I Wanna Reach The Moon, absolutely captures the spirit of the original game while improving on the execution in every way. This truly feels like a modern rendition that retains much of the charm of See The Moon and even includes some similar gimmicks. The bosses are well-balanced and never felt like they dragged on for too long.

This is a must-play adventure game for fangamers, and while it's probably a bit too hard to recommend to first-timers, it's a great intermediate game.
