With every game dopamine made, he just got better and better; therefore, seeing as this is his first game, it's also his worst. Though it inspired many games after it, I would not say Tethys stands up at all five years later. Nearly every screen had at least one jump that infuriated me to no end, and the few which where wholly good were also woefully short. That is the nature of these sorts of needle games, though: the goodness is fleeting and the irritation eternal.

I would not say Tethys is a bad game altogether, not in the slightest. There is a valiant attempt at making an enjoyable needle game here, but there's just so many jumps which really deteriorated the experience that I could never recommend this game. The most enjoyable aspect was the aesthetic, something that dopamine was able to perfect from the very start of his gamemaking career; yet, a great aesthetic does not itself make a great game.

If you're in dire need of some dopamine, then and ONLY then would I say give this a shot. I seem to be in the minority concerning my opinion, though, so don't let my negativity get in the way of what could be an enjoyable gaming experience.

Nice needle game with cool visuals, cool musics, good level design and plenty of jumps that you won't see everywhere. There are two things that I really like in this game. The first one is the death sound: Just like with Neurosis, the death sound isn't a pain to the ears, with makes the deaths a lot more bearable. The second one is the blood splatter: Finally, there is a fangame where the blood doesn't go through the spikes! I never understood why fangames never allowed their spikes to get dirty with the kid's blood. The blocks can get as bloody as they want, but not the spikes - The spikes must stay clean. This doesn't happen with this game, though: Everything gets bloody here. I really like when fangame makers actually bother with these details, even if they seem like minor stuff.
Another cool detail is the transition between the first part of the game and the second part of the game, it's well-made and really seems like a transition screen.
It's really well-made, and really enjoyable. Would recommend.

Usually a fan of atmospheric works but I also rely on not having to dislike the needle during it as well, this had too many unsavory jumps in it for me to enjoy the game. I will give it props though for visuals, the tilesets and backgrounds lead me to be extremely uncomfortable while playing, especially the white forest background, I'm not sure what emotion to associate it with, but its not a healthy one.

Meh uninspired needle game that relies a lot on named and akward jumps. The first stage has a few interesting saves but most of the game feels very unpolished.
