Interesting and fun needle game with confusing music choice and the same visuals that become draining throughout the game. I think the interlaced paths within screens are fun but the save balance within those needs work. Good game though.

I will be unfortunately picky about this one. The graphics are particularly not of my taste. They have a Castlevania-like feel to it from the NES era (which is good), but it harms gameplay, because it makes the spike sprites confusing at times being of a very similar color than the background. The game has gates (not gate jumps, but like, actual gates) that harm the visibility of the spikes because why not. Also, you find out the bad way that the blue pillars are walls; then you find out also the bad way that you can actually step on them when previously the top of all blue pillars had a block on them. Then, with this logic, you assume all pillars are walls, but no. You have to read the maker's mind that a darker (brownish) pillar means you can walk through it.

The soundtrack is nice, but it is absolutely unrelated with the style of game. It just doesn't fit. Got nothing against Dubstep-like music, so those that hate it, beware.

However, being a relatively short game, there is brain behind the level design, that which resembles sunlaoqq when he makes quality puzzles. It does shine at that department. Also, jumps, while generic most of the times, make it clear that this is meant to train beginners. Difficulty curve is a total mess; it doesn't go from easiest to most difficult (the last screen was actually trivial beyond belief), but there are ups and downs in difficulty throughout. Granted, when making mazes, it is difficult to keep that balance, but again, sunlaoqq knows how to make this deal amazingly.

However, it is widely recommended for beginners looking into making more challenging needle jumps while thinking of a precise route without being overtly complicated/confusing.

Very solid and pretty easy needle game. The overall design is reminiscent of QoQoQo's, only much more toned down, as a definite path can be seen easily. The game spans over a good number of screens, and a lot of the segments wind you through quite a few of them to get to a certain point. The overall production is also really good; great visuals and a level design theme that fits it, especially in one room where the background is split into thirds, where the middle third shows a cloudy sky. While being easy, I was certainly having fun, and the game is long enough to spend about 10 or so minutes on. Would recommend.
