Originally shown during Fangame Marathon's David and Goliath race, Incremental is my first official full-game release! I hope you enjoy it. There are multiple difficulties in this game for beginners and veterans to play!

Current version is 1.15, an updated final version will come out after FM2018. http://iwannacommunity.com/forum/index.php?topic=2475.0

I really hope future games use this one as an example. Everything is custom,, the gameplay feels so unique even for a straight up needle game without any gimmicks, and is MORE impressive considering the entire game is on a 32px grid from start to finish. The production value of incremental is incredible. The music is incredible and I love how it changes when you die (they made all the music on their own is what I read), the graphics are incredible and I can choose which I want to keep so the game looks like how I want it to, gameplay is incredible (and I played on easy medium and hard to see the changes and I still have insane to go) and the death effect where the kid splits in half on the spike is incredible (and so is the sound when you fall off the bottom, was laughing the first time I heard that.) Difficulty rating is based on hard which they say is the recommended difficulty. Will update when I finish insane. This is for version 1.14

Because you can play every main level on any difficulty you want, I would recommend this game to players of any skill level, and I love how if you didn't play a single fan game before, this is a perfect beginner game for you, and you can immediately get better by replaying a level on medium, then hard, all rewarding you for doing it!

The creator gives himself two challenges for the games :
1) Make a 32 pixel needle game (spikes/blocks on a 32 pixel grid, no minispikes).
2) Make a needle game with no gimmicks or common jumps (gates, diamonds, etc.).

This game is well-made with cool musics, and it is one of the rare game which reward you for beating the game on Hard difficulty.
Each world has 5 screens, on each screen, you can choose a different difficulty. The higher difficulty you choose, the more gold you earn, then you can upgrades tileset/background.

I don't want to rate difficulty since i beat it on easy/medium, and this game is meant to be played on Hard Difficulty.

Rating based on 100% hard mode.
The needle is actually quite good although it's consisted of 100% 32px grid. But I wish the jumps had some more diversity because it gets repetitive in the latter stages. (A lot to be honest) Also, showing the pixel walls was a great touch.
The production value is through the roof, but most of it are decorations and does not improves the gameplay, but I really liked it, so lots of extra points for this. Highly recommended to advanced needle players.

why the fuck is this game favoured just because it's 32 pixel needle? the platforming is so repetitive and the graphics are intentionally bad half the time
