Really well-made puzzle fangame where you have to switch between different Kids with different kinds of abilities. It's a bit too long, but all the puzzles are really well-made, so it's worth the time it takes. There are two bosses, the first one being a kind of training for the last one. They use an interesting concept, although the top right side can be quite unfair sometimes.
It's a fun game with a really interesting concept. Would recommend.

Pretty cool puzzle needle game based on having a variety of kids with different abilities and a couple miniboss encounters.

The production is simplistic but solid.

The puzzles are generally quite neat while still being quite accessible, with each kid having distinct uses and the design generally well built around their abilities and keeping it clear. There's definitely a couple poor design choices, and it feels like there's an assumption of the player being quite capable of needle, as the needle design is kind of bland in a lot of places but not always that easy, with some long saves. This combines to potentially being a problem for lesser skilled players more interested in the mechanics from enjoying the game. Also the oversight of a softlock is a major problem.

The boss encounters are fun and a nice breakup. I'm a sucker for multitasking style minigames and it did a good job of that - really enjoyed that despite the balance/rng being a little unreasonable.

Overall though, had a good time and while a little more design time feels like it could go a long way, this is the kind of concept I wish more people would actively do.

Nice needle game that leans towards some puzzle stuff. The bosses were fine, but I can see how it can be annoying to keep up with that much on the second one. Also, two of the gimmicks are not explained that well, so don't hesitate in using a video if something doesn't click for you.

Fantastic needle game with puzzle elements, and a cool gimmick that involves switching between different Kids with different abilities, based on Carnival's games. The game has brilliant pathing, and while there is the occasional room that may have you stuck for a while, it's not really difficult to figure out, and really fun as well once you figure out what to do. There's also a couple of avoidances, which test your ability to use the different Kids' powers (the final one, multiple at the same time). Overall, if you're looking for needle/puzzle games with some gimmicks, I'd highly recommend this one.
