Beautiful experiment that sparked creativity in needle design of its era. It inspired makers to use spikes for aesthetic purposes and make "floating island" styled sections. Nowadays there are authors who expanded on that formula, turning it into one of the most visually pleasant needle styles. I really appreciate this game for its ideas.

Gameplay wise the game is a relic of a long gone simplier era, which I personally find more enjoyable then any of the recent precision floods or games that try to one up each other with some complex needle techniques or some absurdly made gimmicks.

It's kind of insane this game exists in the state it does, the visuals are pretty horrendous, I know some people find them painful to look at but personally they were fine, just really ugly. The needle itself is probably best describe by the word "incoherent." It feels like there's just random stuff strewn together, very little rhyme or reason. It's a fun game to laugh at but gameplay wise it's pretty damn terrible. If you can't get enjoyment value out of the absurdity of the game then you should probably stay away.

Do not play this.
If you told me that a blind person had made this I would probably believe you. This game doesn't respect you nor your time. Stupid fucking dickspikes, only a single trap in the whole game (that you will fall for) placed at the end of a save, blind screen transition jumps, dogshit save placement, low jumps galore.
0.5 for music.

why the fuck is this on the fsr

A short mess of a game that would feel just as comfortable under the sudoku umbrella as the needle one. The visuals are so bad it feels incomprehensible that they weren't an intentional joke, and the needle itself is horrible, filled with generic jumps. In particular, multiple saves end with diamonds, or keyboard dependent low jumps, making the saves super chokable (this is often after several diagonals or a corner). In addition, the game has 10s of dickspikes, and loves this particular horrible little jump, where you have to bonk from the side of a dickspike under an apple.

Overall, I would almost recommend this game, simply so you can witness the sheer catastrophe that it is.

To all aspiring needle makers: pay attention to everything this game does and do the exact opposite.
