Fun needle game that makes use of lots of generic needle jumps in interesting ways, in a similar way to Venus. Four stages, decent difficulty curve, nice visuals, nice music, annoying death sound. It's enjoyable. Would recommend.

WARNING: If you're going through the Solar System series, THIS is the game you're looking for: 'Be' the Mercury, NOT 'be' the Mercury. Get it?

Be: Yes
be: Nope

Otherwise, you will have to face an atrocious and not funny joke.

Anyway, the huge problem with me is the visuals. They are... horrendous. You basically grab the original brown I Wanna Be The Guy ground tile and paint it with different colors. It is also pervasively dark, so the neon-ish effect that was intended cannot be appreciated at all. There is also a mobile background, in case you couldn't see it, and maybe you didn't precisely because of lighting problems.

About the gameplay, the length is nice, but level design is very basic and straightforward and buffs sections towards almost every save with generic stuff like diamonds, corners, TAS jumps or two diagonals in succession, which are very uneventful and frustrating. Music will fool you into thinking this will be a Uhuhu-like experience, but nope, it's just a remix of several vocaloids several of us avoidance freaks will recognize. Music does not suit the experience at all.

Also, I wouldn't have minded the outline design for the kid. Again, visuals harm enjoyment a great deal.

Look for other games in the series. They are more worth it.

Wasn't a huge fan of his needle style here compared to his other games like Venus. The visuals were also a bit lackluster.
