My expectations before starting the game: 'This should be cool shot needle game followed by cute, well-executed and fun avoidance! I must try it!'

Me after beating the game: 'Annoying needle, which tests your diagonal ability followed by cute, but boring, frustrating and unfun avoidance. Again, why I played it?'

No, I am not trying to offend Habluka or anything. It is my first game, which I beat by him, and I expected more, because reviews on delicious-fruit were mostly positive about it.

And yet I was disappointed.

Needle visually looks appealing and music very fitting, but I didn't expect to see 2 needle screens, which for the most part consists of different diagonal jumps. The only original and fun thing was the last corner jump, which placement was quite original. And it was still pretty mediocre. But I thought that maybe the main point was to make avoidance, not the needle. Overall, I played this game just to try the avoidance, you know.

Oh, well, it was my mistake...

Avoidance started promising with cool retro effects and Japanese lyrics showing up in the game window (sadly you won't be able to read them, so no use from them for me) . And then I realised that something is wrong. Sometimes I have feeling that something just does not look well at all. And here many things looked out of place for me. Whimsical usage of white & black screens; making black screen as an effect, but allowing to see the kid; changing gravity, which at first does kill and short after does not; annoying sprite, which really interferes at some point (especially, towards the end); random bursts, which are made as a pattern, but which are pretty hard to react, and requires them to be known beforehand, and a lot more.

Like really, gameplay has several attacks on which you can just hold the button or not do anything, and then there is suddenly second verse, on which some very random gimmicks are used. Warping from ground to the top and gravity lines are not bad ideas, but they are actually a little bit annoying to perform, because it is very easy to make a mistake. Besides I am not even talking about the very last section, which is actually hard. I first-tried it, but I think it is not easy at all even with an HP. I liked somehow it, but I think if you die few times there, then you will stop liking that section.

I don't want to get in depths, just going to say, that avoidance would be more interesting if it wasn't so experimental. Pure white & black with pink just does not match together, in my opinion. I think even using pink for everything or similar colours would feel a lot better. Also RNG could be more balanced, I think.

I liked the whole concept, and I think Habluka has good potential to do, but I could lie if I said that I loved this game. It has potential, but its realization is very mediocre. Needle lacks of being fun or original, but avoidance lacks of being fun and creative. It has potential and good ideas, but I just cannot like it, when I have to get through ton of free attacks just to try some very annoying ones, while visuals totally make me feel confused about their pretty random usage. Of course, I liked the production value, and some attacks felt fun, like the beginning and some aiming attack ideas, but it is just a small part of the game.

I don't feel that I need more to say about the game. I didn't analyze literally every attack, but I think you got my point - I disliked 2 hours (35 minutes for needle and everything else for avoidance) I spent for this game.

Wouldn't recommend, for me it is just overrated.

Play better some snow games (sorry, I am not offending you, Habluka).
