Needle (4) Gimmick (2) Special (1) Visual_Challenge (4)

A terrifying and hard game to beat, featuring the three worst things possible ONLY because they are put together: A time limit (featuring good but incredibly stressful music), no R to restart (there's deaths which spend a lot of time which makes the timer even worse), and screen effects that, while they ARE good-looking, are sometimes very distracting from your needle ability. I'd say that taking away any of the factors in a way that makes the game good in production value while still managing to make the game less stressful would be very good, as the needle design is still decent to some respect and the graphics are damn fine. Only recommended to people who have a lot of time to spend.

I don't get all the hate for this game. The visuals maybe a bit distracting at times sure, but stuff like the transitions last for a short time. You can save wherever you want without any save blockers in your way, which is very helpful since some saves end up being really hard is they were there in the first place. The song is very hectic and the time limit adds an extra layer of tension, which is a very uncommon gimmick in a fangame. The only other time I can remember something like this is during the Thank you Thenewgeezer area in CN3, which features a clock that ticks around and you have to beat it within 15 minutes to access a secret. Lastly, it had a bunch of cool jumps and the ones that look very hard to beat turn out to be not that bad (think of the 2 corners in 1 jump thing later on).

Some might have beaten this game on the original version, where there were less saves throughout the game and some jumps are significantly buffed than they are now which leads me to think that the ones with lower ratings were being made around the time the game got released.

It has a few flaws which are definitely noticable but it didn't really ruin the experience for me that much.

When I found this game has a time limit, my first thought was 'It's a minus gimmick. Why it can't be a relaxed needle?' But, when I actually tried to speedrun it, the tension was awesome(especially at the end) and I really liked the visual followed by great music.

Screen flashing randomly can throw you off really quickly.

Other than that, good job on the effects, pretty fun levels.

The platforming difficulty was definitely all over the place, but the effects were kinda neat.

Docked points because of K2 death music. :^)
