Very cool 100F game entirely focused around short saves and relatively precise jump sequences. Most harder needle games end up testing the player's willingness to grind, but Kantoku stands out for testing one's pure needle ability and basically nothing else. There's no pathing to learn, nor are there any long saves complicated by one or two jumps that you need to grind out muscle memory for. It's also not as technically demanding as L games or Hades-likes, while still remaining challenging and generally avoiding generic needle configurations.

I can understand why someone would dislike or be underwhelmed by this game, because it does get somewhat repetitive after 100 floors of similar design, but I had a lot of fun with it and found it quite satisfying in the context of just challenging myself with different jumps again and again.

Interesting 100f where the concept is that you basically have a save every jump, so the game is really focused on semi precision needle rather than grinding long things. Most of the game is enjoyable even if there are multiple instances of saves being just named jumps. What could be a problem for some people is the very volatile difficulty, some saves are just free while some others are really precise especially near the end.
It was surprisingly relaxing because any annoying save doesn't last for long, it's kinda a unique experience, would recommend even if it can be a bit repetitive.

This is a 100F game with many placements.
The visuals are not good,but I do appreciate the lack of the same placement a bit.
I don't recommend it, but I think it's a good way to kill time.

Kantoku Needle is a 100 floor game where just about every single screen is bombarded with tons of saves, making for a very snappy short-save focused needle experience (as the screenshots give a good indication).

The needle is for the most part unique in the sense that there's no real reliance on generic or uninspired jumps, which a good amount of x_floor games can tend to do when the inevitable room-with-many-saves segment pops up. Align markers are also given out throughout the game in times where needed (although there were a couple of examples and one in particular where an align isn't recommended to you and the jump more or less demands it, which is kind of a bummer). The difficulty felt mostly the same throughout, where there are a lot of freebies and a lot of tricky ones, and this balance never really changes.

If the images appeal to you then you're gonna be getting 100 floors of that, so you'll have a good idea of how appealing this is. I had some fun with it, although it did feel a little monotonous after a while as the style never really changes and it began to feel a little mindless. Probably better played in short bursts rather than one sitting.
