Updated: Clear is based on Hard Mode clear. This is a 4 room needle game with "grater" like tile sets and "concrete" looking spikes. It also has a nice background and music choice which gives the game a dark atmosphere making it mysterious. For the most part the save balance was generally alright and I didn't feel overwhelmed at any point in the game. The difficulty balancing could have used some work and I feel only 1-2 saves needed it. This game does require JC so I would only recommend to people who enjoy a challenge and to people who can 1 frame/JC.

Medium Difficulty = 72
Hard Mode Difficulty = 85

It's a fairly well-designed needle game. It's my favorite.

I wouldn't go to the extent that Leinaps even though it is indeed a farm game, but the difficulty distribution is decent, even if the first and third saves of the third screen were the hardest (final jump of final screen can be sort-of easily set up with the proper align).

This seems to be a game that baptized a new subgenre like L did: rocky needle with hard-soil-like-looking tiles and a music that doesn't seem to correlate at the beginning, but it then makes the experience somewhat more enjoyable. The farming thing is my biggest issue, but this is a love-hate relationship since most of the buffs come from highly dated needle, but this game made me do three things that I never considered myself capable of doing:

-A double downwards plane
-Squished diagonals, two downwards and one upwards
-Making an upwards plane and a downwards plane in the same jump
-A triple diamond

The first screen should prepare you for the horrors ahead, and my two cents definitely go for the third screen as the hardest, where the difficulty is a mess, and then goes down in the final screen. Experience was short, amusing and makes you face novice fears that sooner or later you will have to do if you keep delving into the fangame world.

Recommended only for veteran players, and consider jump-cancelling as mandatory knowledge for making this less of a screwfest. I grant some jumps being enjoyable and creative, but not the majority. It's more the feeling of accomplishment of pulling common difficult stuff off.

Nice aesthetic. Only saves that sucked were the stupid squished diagonals and the plane dplane.
