I'll be reviewing each game of the series separately, since the maker said in the readme that the only reason why he didn't upload each .exe individually was because he was too lazy to do so (Also, writing about three different fangames in the same review feels weird, even if they are really similar).

Basically the definition of what beginner needle should be like. Lots of creative jumps with plenty of room for mistakes, somewhat short saves and nice design overall. The difficulty curve is really solid, constantly getting harder but never reaching lengths that are too unreasonable for a beginner. Being able to attain all of these positives on the design department while making a beginner-friendly needle is worth double the praise. Furthermore, the visuals are really nice, and the music is nice and fitting (Although the death sound is kinda annoying).
That doesn't really mean that only beginners should play it, however. As it holds most of the positives that make a good needle game, it's also a great game for somewhat experienced players to play if they are looking for a nice, easier fangame to spend a couple minutes at.
Basically, it's worth playing regardless of skill level (Unless you particularly dislike easier fangames). It's just that great. Highly recommended.

Beginner needlers look no further! This is a 3-in-1 bundle of creative yet sensible design, with peaceful music and visuals to suit. Each game is slightly more difficult than the one before. However, they're all fun, and finish with a similar idea.
I highly recommend this before trying needle games above 30 stars of difficulty.

+ Good beginner needle (hard to find)
+ Creative pathing through screens
+ Peaceful visuals

- Packaged as three separate games
- Same music for all three games

When I started, I really wanted to go deeper into needle games. I also came from a pretty long Touhou gameplay. This was the right thing at the right moment.

The first entry in an exceedingly recommendable series for beginners that are looking forward to needle games. Kira☆~Kira☆~ really planned them to be played in succession, as the escalation in difficulty between each game is present, but very noble. This is a great first needle experience that will put incentives in new players to venture further more into the genre. Sweet music, creative and fun jumps (even for experienced players), a low death sound and a very nice visual design are the pros. The cons: The 'Game Over' music is dissonantly questionable and the game is too short: In my opinion, making the whole trilogy as a single game featuring three different designs would have been a more rewarding and memorable experience, and the fact that the .exe files are united makes speedrunning records troublesome.

Aside from that, this should be your starting point if you are afraid to approach the needle I Wanna community :)
