This is primarily a needle/gimmick game with a bit of adventure mixed in. I had a lot of fun making this game and I hope you enjoy playing it.

The space atmosphere is a metaphor for not being bound by others restrictions on what you can achieve in your life. Seize the day.

Pretty well made game especially for a first game.The needle is done very well with soem gimmicks.The music is great too(stage 2 music is the best).There are 5 secrets that are harder than the actual stages but very well done.The secret avoidance you get is pretty cool with some interesting attacks.The final boss is basically nothin,cause you kill him for 15 seconds.Would recommend.

Decent needleventure game with a couple of bosses. Some of the needle design feels a bit corridory but for the most part its fun and interesting. Production is clean though nothing super exciting and it has a little story which is always a plus. The bosses are simple but entertaining (with one exception).

The secrets are a bit harder, and the secret boss is a bit of a drag because one of the early attacks just takes forever to do nothing and its a bit learny, but it has some interesting ideas so that's cool.

Its worth playing if you like needleventurey style and want something on the easier end of whats generally available in the genre.

I found the game to be pretty alright, though i think the gimmicks could've been used in a more interesting way, most of the stages their gimmicks i barely noticed. I did like the gravitry flipper stage a lot.

This is a very decent needle game with a couple of cool gimmicks.
I love the visuals in this, they are simple yet effective, the music selection... it's just gorgeous.

One thing I did notice is that the bosses feel often times lazy, the bunny boss in particular is pretty unfair and not very enjoyable to play through, thankfully this boss is optional, besides that nothing too annoying. I think it's a cool fangame worth checking out either way, my favorite stage was the red one!

Would totally recommend.

What a lovely little game this was! And this was Hop's first game too? Gosh! I wasn't expecting this game to be as enjoyable as it was, but here we are. Something about the aesthetic and feeling of the game just really tickled my fancy. I love all things space, though, so I should have figured this would be the case.

There are 6 stages of content to explore including 5 secrets that I did not personally go about collecting (because I didn't know of their existence until the final one and by that time, I had no interest in going back to collect them), and 4 of these stages are centered on gimmick-based platforming. Each of them are well done in their own right, but the game became more interesting as the difficulty increased. The last stage, however, was probably my least favorite of the bunch. Favorite would be the stage with the heart gimmick, which I thought was pretty neat, or the gravity flipper stage which while not being outrageously original was fairly satisfying to play through. The other two stages consist entirely of one boss fight, the first being a small avoidance (aside from two leaves which must be riddled with bullets) and the second being a Nito sprite which you must also riddle with bullets. They're nothing to get excited about, but not irritating or anything.

There's not too much to the game, but what is there is highly lovable and enjoyable. Unless you need your difficulty to be 70+, then this game is absolutely worth giving a go.
