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.

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.

An decent needle game. I really loved the first two stages, they have a nice atmsophere thanks to musics and backgrounds but the later stages get more tedious, especially because of the horrible gimmick of stage 3.
There are also secrets that I highly recommend you to search for because it's probably the best part of the game. (There are also some bosses but tbh, none was interesting to me: the first one is a very easy and short avoidance, the second one can be killed in 15s and there is an optionale avoidance that didn't looked good to me so).

Neat adventure needle game, has many gimmicks throughout also including lasers and a bunch of the normal gimmicks you see in games. Not much to say, its fun and worth a play.

Opinion is based on collecting every secret in the game.

Game is very well designed. Platforming is fun though jumps aren't the most original I liked every single one of them except those Stage 5 gravity switches but they are not my cup of tea anyway. In terms of visuals this game definitely doesn't lack any: original tiles, backgrounds; sadly, Stage 2 background was way too bright and distracted me from seeing jump refreshers which perfectly matched the color pattern of the background. Despite all of that this game stands out and I would definitely recommend it for anybody who likes pure platforming. Also, almost forgot there are 2 bosses: one of which is an easy avoidance and another one is Death? I can't really tell but while avoidance's design is very nice. Death is pretty poorly designed in my opinion both in terms of visuals and attacks.

Overall, go play this game if you are into this sort of stuff :^)

Oh, yeah Ape Escape mini-game you get for getting every secret is very neat
